I want to run code with no hassle, no cost, no setup, and learn from others. How do I run it online?

Hey, whatever happened to Flash? Can I still use that? YES.
If you're stuck on something, don't be a hero! Everyone needs a hand sometimes, so ask! Here's some of the best places I've found to get — and give! — ActionScript help.
Don't forget that there's like a zillion awesome ActionScript blogs you should read and tweeters you should follow. (Cough cough.)
Oh cuss. Did I mess something up? Let me know so I can fix it, by emailing email@example.com.
