This happens when you give me 36 million datasets and a little time :)

Cool.

(Should each phrase be random? I have to reload the movie to get another phrase.)

No, after the line is on top, the text should change. What flash do you use?

It doesn't do that for me. I'm using Flash Player 8.

Nice one!

Anybody to do a rotating globe with blinking light streams and poping phrases? (Similar to the one that Google has in their HQ).

PS: Is it a Windows standard wallpaper (in the background)? :P

It would be really cool to do something similar to Stack and Swarm in the Digg Labs.

I am no ActionScript/Flash hacker, but I'll do my best

Neat idea, but I'm seeing only one phrase the entire session.

I get different phrases, but testing this with a default Win XP/ IE setup via http://browserpool.de I can reproduce the bug. Corsin, you can see for yourself with Browserpool...

Corsin – the SWF polls a script I imagine, did you disable caching for this script?

E.g. in PHP I use @header('Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate');

You could also append a random number as parameter... if that's the problem.
