I too say to those who don't have flash...oh give it up and join the modern web age!
I hate flash. I am strongly tempted to exit any site which opens with a useless time-wasting flash sequence.
I'll just quote Jacob Nielson, useability guru:
"About 99% of the time, the presence of Flash on a website constitutes a usability disease
. Although there are rare occurrences of good Flash design (it even adds value on occasion), the use of Flash typically lowers usability. In most cases, we would be better off if these multimedia objects were removed.
Flash tends to degrade websites for three reasons: it encourages design abuse, it breaks with the Web's fundamental interaction principles, and it distracts attention from the site's core value."
