Looks nice, yes. Unfortunately it suffers from all your typical flash problems.

I know. I’m irritated that you can’t link to a specific year in the timeline, etc. Stupid Flash.

I love the content, but the slow transitions leave me painfully clicking over and over; hurry up and become active links!

/agree with all of the above.

Static pages are so much sexier and useful, and Flash sites continue to irk me.

1. All those transitions, fades, and animations are time wasters. Give me content fast.

2. You can’t bookmark or link to any part of that!

3. Too much requires you to mouse over and click through stuff.

4. You have to learn the navigation system, its not intuitive.

But other than the above and probably a dozen other flaws, it looks great.
