New Dreamweaver Tutorials


Macromedia Dreamweaver is the most powerful WYSIWYG site building tool, one just as respected for what it does do as what it doesn’t. What it does offer is an intuitive environment for building cross-platform sites. What it doesn’t do is alter existing HTML by inserting esoteric tags that add nothing but weight.

Dreamweaver is a favorite of multimedia designers, since it easily integrates with other Macromedia applications, like Flash and Shockwave. It’s probably a less popular choice for small staffs or corporate sites, since it doesn’t come with a library of Web-ready graphics, like FrontPage and NetObjects does.

Webcentral data center is down !

WebCentral, Australias biggest web hosting provider, is experiencing a mayor outage!

Read their notice here:
Outage:05 December 12:00 AEST
Water supply to our Wickham Street premises has been cut this morning, which has affected the air conditioning in our data centre. We initially shut off all non-essential services in an attempt to reduce the impact of this water supply issue. The air-conditioning has now reached a critical point and we have been forced to shut down all data centre facilities at Wickham Street in a controlled way to minimise damage to servers and other equipment. Water supply has been re-established, but it will take some time for the cooling towers to replenish and air-conditioning to return to normal. We will post an update on this issue as soon as possible.

Netscape icon on the homepage, Geocities and Tripod hosted just about every
single personal homepage, and “Google” was just a funny-sounding word?
