Flash Parade 2003 refund

I've been told that someone who registered to the Flash Parade 2003 Marseille France using my promotional code never got the refund when the Flash Parade was cancelled. First: my apologies. Second: I'm trying to contact the people of Vision Flash to see what happened and I'll make sure that the refund takes place.
If you also have some problems with your refund, let me know because I'm going to talk with them, please write me to [email protected] with the subject: Flash Parade refund. But I can only assure the refunding for the people who used my promotional code.

Francesc Català-Roca

Humberto Rivas

But not only Antoni Gaudi i Cornet rocks, Lluís Domènech i Montaner, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Josep Maria Jujol i Gibert, Cèsar Martinell i Brunet, Joan Rubió i Bellver and Enric Sagnier Villavecchia have a great work as well!

Design patterns: Francis Bourre on 'Command pattern'

After Singleton, Abstract in AS2 and Abstract factory, Francis give us a nice explanation of Command pattern with examples and downloads. To come: an interesting trip trough the Observer model and AS2 events avoiding EventDispatcher. There is also an interesting discussion about MacroCommand in the comments section. Is in French, so hands to the translators but don't translate the code ;)
