Flash News Scroller v0.2

Description:This is a little something I coded today. The best way to describe it is for you to view it
I also coded an admin panel, so that your admins can easily update it without FTP or much knowledge. By Penguin of SourceJunky.com #sourcejunky on Quakenet

Apoligies that this plugin may not be much use to people with not much coding knowledge, and my coding is rather sloppy. Next release will be much better!
