Hello members of DMXzone,
I am currently in the process of developing a business plan and would
greatly appreciate your help.
DMXzone premium tutors Rachel Andrew and Gareth Downes-Powell, together with new premium tutor Kevin Marshall, Drew McLellan and Nancy Gill, have got together with Apress to bring you The Dreamweaver Developer's Instant Troubleshooter.
Our founder, George Petrov writes, "This is the best book for professional Dreamweaver users who need to know how to integrate other web technologies, but don't need yet another tour around the menus. Real solutions to real problems that will save you lots of time ... not to mention hair!".
The BBC reports that Microsoft Office 2003 has a new feature, the lemming email, which can be set by the sender to delete itself after a specified time period - and which can be prevented from being forwarded or even printed. A free Office Viewer will be available for those who don't run Office but receive a lemming mail.
The big question is: will anyone use it? Many companies have a policy or regulatory requirement to retain emails for a certain time period. I bet some of these people will love it, though...
DMXzone partners, LaGarde make the e-commerce suite Storefront and are offering a 10% discount for all DMXzone members. Storefront is a full suite that integrates with Dreamweaver and allows you to build product management, marketing and order management facilities for your clients.

We reported in our newsletter a week ago that verisign were routeing all browser requests for non-existent .com and .net domain names to their pay-to-list "search engine" that broke spam filters etc. Fortunately, they've now been told to remove it by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). A victory for common sense.
Skipper allows you to build very cheap sensors, has a program to translate body movements picked up by those sensors into controls for programs, provides word predictors, dictionaries etc, and interacts with screenreaders. And it's free!

The "manifesto" is also brilliant.
Today, Adobe announced their new "CS" bundle (Creative Suite). The standard version (estimated at $999, or $599 if upgrading from Photoshop) bundles Photoshop CS, Illustrator CS and InDesign CS. The pro edition ($1299 or $749 if upgrading) has GoLive CS and the Acrobat PDF authoring tool.
We hear good reports of GoLive; the other Adobe tools have significant upgrades, and the CS suite comes with a useful new file browsing system called Version Cue. Could this be why Macromedia was so anxious to get MX 2004 out of the door?
