    The music is free to download and listen to and use in your opensource projects as long as you do not charge for it.
    Just select the kinda music you like from the home page and when you find something you would like to download just click on license and select educational licenses and you can download the music for free and use it in your os projects

    hmmm... my question about what exactly you were implementing was exactly that "what is an MS Encarta llike app?". I read MS Encarta as just Encarta... I have to assume MS Encarta is different then the encyclopedias... maybe an "online" (ie... computer) version?


    That cogengine link looks quite interesting, similar in nature to my current project, although mine will require programming... and isn't for web games.

    Sorry for giving you shit about flash... i just had to
