Up One Level



Two meanings. Firstly, Similar to a Flag but more obvious and usually more urgent, or more serious, a Flash is a visual warning to a user, often associated with security control procedures. For example, if a user who is already logged on at one computer attempts to also log on at a second terminal, the system will Flash the IT supervisor console to warn of possible attempted breach of security.

Secondly; Flash is a technology being used to provide complex animation and sound on Web sites. It is extremely popular!
