Missing link with Flash

I mentioned the possible use of a Flash UI for AppleScript a while ago. Peter Bunn - developer of Missing Link has asked me to demonstrate how a link in a Flash movie could open a Mac file, application or folder using his AppleScript application. So I put together a basic demo (since removed).
Click on the button and Flash will open whatever URL you put in the field – if
you happen to have Missing Link installed and you use the
Open:/ protocol – a valid path will open that particular
directory or file on you Mac.
Without real two way communication between the Flash movie and the system I can’t see it having ground breaking significance. Regardless – it works.
My interesting in Flash has waned somewhat over the years. Removed the links to the now misplaced files. Not anticipating they will be missed.
