Tennis Stats Flash Animation Without Ana Ivanovic

This is my latest. It's not quite finished yet. Tennis stats animation is suppose to be collection of fictional tennis match animation panels with different statistical information displayed in appropriate form. Some panels are actually static but most are animated. They are all more or less based on real-life examples and can be modified to receive and display real match data.

Tennis Stats Animation

There are four panels right now, ones you can see on image above. Will add more later. Instead of currently displayed text "tennis stats animation" first plan was to create woman tennis silhouette in "waiting for serve" pose and animate it. My model was off course Ana Ivanovic, the most beautiful tennis player ever and as you can guess my "Ana playing" folder with video files became very heavy right away, but I just can't choose which file to use :) I'm working on it.

Your thoughts about it and how to improve it? (I mean animation off course, you just can't improve Ana)

Easy JavaScript Radial Menu

Very nice example by Creative Punch CSS3 and JavaScript radial menu. Little bit of math and smooth transition.

Schedule Flash Application

First, I'll start with some simple code. I need two smaller helper functions. First one is clone function since I need to hard-copy entire arrays and this can't be done with built-in functions. Clone function uses ByteArray to hard-copy any array.

Another helper function is createArray which outputs Array with numbers 1 to limit. This is simpler version of application where I only have numbers representing group members. In real life example I'll probably have list of students in text file or something like that so my Array will contain these names. 

Idea is to create application which will split group members into random subgroups will given number of elements (students). This will save time for teachers and make group exercises more interesting because groups are chosen randomly every time.

Main schedule function is simple, I just take one by one element from starter Array created using createArray function, put it in new multidimensional array and exclude it from starting one. I do this until first array is not empty.

This code will work without mistake only if remainder of n / g is zero. If it's not zero, code needs to be modified so extra elements are put in already existing groups, but equally.

Next will be to add some nice graphics around it, maybe some kind of slot machine, anything that looks like group members are selected randomly.
