Is a Flash-intro to a personal portfolio still good/relevant?

Let's assume that you've done the proper work to provide a "Skip
Intro" button. Let's further assume that you've done at least the
minimum to make your content accessible to people without the Flash
The question I ask, then, is: does having a Flash intro to a personal
site, which may include one's portfolio or resume, make sense in
today's job market and design environment? Or does this brand the
designer as someone stuck in the last decade?
As usual, I suspect the answer is "it depends"; what I'm really
interested in is exploring issues around how we present ourselves in
online presences and the Flash-intro or Flash-site is a method I still
see from time to time, though not nearly as much as I used to.
