If you will look to the right, you will see my 'About' box in the sidebar. Pretty standard right? The only thing is that usually people don't put in their email address without disguising it like edusprouts (at) gmail (dot) com which is just a pain if someone wants a no-fuss way to contact the blogger. The box is actually a Sprout and I have linked the text to a "mail to:" URL reference. Because the Sprout is in flash I am thinking that spambots arent going to be able to harvest the address. (Attention: If you are a spam bot, I really don't need any pharmaceuticals!)

This sprout was a bit painful to build. Thirty-two pages and over two hundred buttons! I don't know if I will make many more like it however I could use it as a template for additional negative number practise sprouts which would be pretty easy. Keep an eye out for more of those.
It is my first time incorporating sound in a sprout and I know it can be annoying but there is always the option to turn off the speakers. Incidentally Sproutbuilder only accepts MP3 sound files and one of the best places to find sound effects was at Soundsnap, a community of sound effect sharers.
