On flash sites like this - a viewer must actually have an interest in  
"flash" as an art form (that is to say a way of presenting dynamic  
interactive content). It's a bit like watching a movie but you have  
to interact with it.

It is not a means of quickly getting to text or image content.

Many people also have no patience for PDF downloads - which also have  
a wonderful function in their ability to present page design as the  
designer intended.

It's always a personal call whether flash or pdfs are worth the wait  
and frustration.

Fond regards,
