Dream a Little Dream

Macromedia Dreamweaver lives up to its name once again with a brand new preview release of Dreamweaver MX, available today.

Having just downloaded the evaluation myself, already I see two unadvertised features which make this clearly a no-brainer upgrade for most web developers. First, this seems to be an upgrade to Dreamweaver Ultradev, the application-making, data-binding, powerhouse app, which used to be sold separately from regular Dreamweaver at a higher price to boot. Now the technical ante is upped considerably, with this version supporting ASP.NET, ColdFusion, and web services. However, what surprised me the most is its native handling of PHP files. That’s right, kiddies, it looks like this version really is a dream come true. It even purports to write standard CSS, XHMTL, and XML, all within the Aqua GUI goodness of Mac OS X!

It’s not shipping yet, though. You have to get on their list and tell them how bad you want it!

Devil’s Advocate

It’s true. When I’m not practicing my usual
devil worship, I like to read comic books—or rather I should say I’ve been picking up that favorite past time as of late. Some of this has been due to an idea I’ve been tossing around with a friend, but have had little time to do anything about (oh, the mystery).

Bare Naked PHP

We’re new, improved, and exposing ourselves in public for the very first time. After receiving word that the Flava Packetº wasn’t working properly in some versions of IE, I put an immediate search out for the culprit. It seems that the cookie wasn’t being picked up, not because users had their cookies turned off (like I initially thought), but because I didn’t write the cookie as explicitly as said browsers would have liked. So, after some minor trial and error testing, I’ve decided to
release the code, now that it seems to be in working order.

Days of Grunge Gone By

DIRT I guess maybe because it’s Spring and I’m feeling free, or the fact that I have nothing else of note to say, but here’s an uncalled for little snippet from my sordid past. It’s a driver’s license circa 1992. Oh, the nostalgia.

The unkempt shoulder length hair. The homemade T-shirt that read an angst-ridden and/or self-loathing message of simply “DIRT.” (Really, it did.) Those were the days of grunge gone by. Will they ever return?

Well, if the lead singer for Puddle of Mudd hasn’t convinced the world yet that Kurt Cobain’s life force was somehow sucked into a jar and recently popped open for timely release, I don’t know what could convince us to break out the flannel.
