Flash is a great way to do this.  I have two years in Flash but am new to
PHP/MySQL - one of the things you will appreciate is the ease of using
actionscript on the flash side to communicate with your PHP script.  And I
know not everybody will like this part, but you can put all the cool bells
and whistles on using Flash!  I say go for it.

A very simple introduction, yet one that contains the basics on everything
you would want to do for your project (since the PHP script would be
handling the load) is titled"Foundation PHP for Flash" - check it out.  If
you're concerned about updating variables into a dynamic text field, Flash
operates on whatever frame rate you assign it, and if you want to refresh
your variables you simply loop the movie around the frame containing the
requesting actionscript.

If you have any Flash-related questions feel free to contact me.
