Hey Greg,

Good list of links here. One that I noticed isn't on the list is Everyday Weirdness. They post a new flash piece each day.

Scott -- thanks for stopping by. Hopefully you can find some good places to submit to. Check the websites before submitting, as some of those guidelines have changed since I posted that.
