Bye bye Flash

Just another little technology update for the site.

So for a long time the site has supported a sort of basic e-reader that I wrote years ago, long before e-readers were any kind of real thing. It allowed me to convert .doc files into a .swf format and display the text in a secure, ungrab-able manner.

Well, now flash is all but gone and support is getting harder and harder to find on modern browsers. So I finally have done the work of converting our reader to a simple PNG-based model. This does make the content "grab-able" fairly easily, but we also don't distribute the novels themselves via the reader anymore, just our short stories, so security really isn't the concern it might have once been.

Hopefully this means anyone anywhere can easily read our short stories, even on your phone.
