    about action script?

    I have very little desire to learn action script, however i would like to potentially use it on a game im making, but first i need to know a couple things.
    1) is action script capable of getting information form mysql?
    2) if its not server sided, can you use action script to call on php? or use php in some way?
    3) and what are the general costs per hour for someone to code action script for me?
    based on the fact that its under client side im guessing that it can not get information for mysql, but can I incorporate php in it?
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    You can use PHP to access your database, and then load that into Flash. Flash is completely client side, because it all happens in the browser.

    Cost for a good developer can range between $25/100 hour I'd guess. It really depends on what you need and where you live.

    There is a framework called AMFPHP which helps make Flash and PHP communicate.
