The pop-up or splash page

To flash designers and Developers:

Why use a pop-up?

Because you couldn’t take the extra hour and design a wrapper for the fixed size flash site you designed?

Because you want %50 of the world with pop-up blocker on to not see your site?
Why are you using a splash page?**

You’re showing me the needed window size and flash tool to see the site? No other options?
-Then just show me the site… I’ll quickly figure out you didn’t build the site for everyone to see it.

You wanted to make it an extra challenge for me to see your site?

Please. Please. Please. Don’t use pop-ups and only use a splash screen if you are actually providing two or more options for the visitor, ie… Flash Version or HTML Version.
