I've beening using the Adobe Suite since 1999, before it was really a suite. I've worked professionaly with .Net and PhP/MySQL web sites. I've also been writing JavaScript since 1999. I know these technologies well, but there's always someone who knows them better :) I've been teaching Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and related software for nearly a decade. I'm very effective in the classroom, but I'm always learning something new.
Web-Based Games -
  The following are quick casual games I made in a few hours to demonstrate JavaScript as a game scripting language. I did these back in 2004, prior to the development of Sriptaculous, MooFx or any of the handy libraries and API's that make the non-proprietary web so much fun. I'm sure that some of these don't work on newer browsers, but just in case looking through dusty websites doesn't float your boat, perhaps these games will. If you need an acronym, you can call these DHTML games.
