This version developed by Tann San from the DevShed Flash Forums.
Tann San cleaned up my code and changed some of the function calls so that the duplicateMovieClip() was possible to occur. Based upon this example, I will develop the final version in which users can either enter how many dots they want placed, or they can choose and incremental version, in which the dots are introduced to the canvas every few seconds forever, with their speed increasing by one each time.
