  • Who is Kenny Bunch? | Kenny Bunch
    with Turner Dreamsocket provided an outlet to work with clients like CBS Rolling Stone Nascar Motorola IBM ING and a host of others Each of these positions projects and experiences has been one more step in the quest Whether it s a smile on a child s face from owning digital cards from Cartoon or connecting long distance friends with communication applications he is moving forward However his goal has not been reached and each day Kenny strives to do something new in order to give back to world that has given him so much So that was my strike at trying to write a quick formal bio What it doesn t say is how I came from a small town with no concept of anything other than a factory job at best What it felt like the time I actually created my first program Skipping grade school to go to my friend s house that had a computer The fact I grew up with very little but could create something that was more valuable than anything someone else could buy What it felt like when a child that had nothing described having more digitial cards in an application I wrote than all the other kids in school What it feels like to be where I am now Honestly everyday I wake up I have to pinch myself It s hard for me to imagine my life I have been so fortunate due to some extremely good luck some hard work and some really wonderful friends I intend to take full advantage of that As bold as it might sound I will change the world for the better Trust me I ve got things brewing Written by kbunch Posted in General 3 comments May 14 2006 6 46 am Margaret

  • WMode causes Flash fullscreen mode not to work | Kenny Bunch
    t the one embedding the swf into the page I got the report that Fullscreen wasn t working on a project I m involved with and they had no clue why When I looked I noticed the WMODE then I ran test to verify that was the issue The reason that they put it in like that was that while on the page they actually had a DHTML overlay that could exist over the Flash element at times To do so the only way they could properly z order it was to use the WMODE When they popped up the player to fullscreen they reasoned that only the Flash element would go fullscreen thinking that it was detaching itself from the browser I didn t know of the overlay they were doing or their setting of WMODE though I realized the issue when I saw it but it points out that even experienced developers may not realize that Since I didn t see it in the docs that you all have posted for now I would say document it For the future if possible it would be nice if the swf recognized the wmode while in the browser rendering space and when it was set to go fullscreen it detached itself In this case the render space would be dynamic vs statically defined upfront Thanks for the followup John Reply December 28 2006 8 53 am John Dowdell Got it thanks for the background Kenny It sounds sort of unfair that they called you back after you delivered the job considering that they could see it work untill they edited the WMODE argument I did some quick searches in LiveDocs but wasn t sure which page would be best do you have a candidate page for this edit tx jd
