Знатоки флеш
Как сделать во FLASH скриптами версий начиная с 2-ой, так чтобы по нажатию клавиши Enter в компоненте TextInput вызывалась какая-нибудь функция ? Тоесть, мы там что-нибудь вводим, потом жмем ввод и вызывается некая функция.

Tech Question: What's the best cross platform File system?
I am a cross platform girl.

I have a linux machine and a macintosh (which is realy just pretty unix), and a windows XP box.

[I'm sticking with windows XP and not updating to Vista, because, well life is too short to inflict that kind of pain on myself.]

But I digress.

Being a cross platform girl, I have external devices which I back up my various boxes to.

Trouble is, they are all formatted to different 'standards'. 

If I were dealing exclusively with smaller files (under 4GB), then I'd probably stick with the Fat32 system BUT as I am often archiving DVD's and other large media files that is not an option. I want to be able to manipulate files without having to archive them into smaller pieces.
As far as I am aware, Windows XP won't play nice with HFS formatted drives, and Macs like HFS PLUS  best (apparently) and the various flavours of Linux, well they just  tend to take anything you throw at them, but reportedly has curious issues with Fat16...

Please tell me which you think is the best cross platform File system and why.

ta . 

I would rather move all the data off of all my external drives, format them ALL TO A SINGLE STANDARD, then move the data back.  I desperately want to have an orderly digital archive, so that I can create and catalouge system back ups easily.

So what should I choose? Stick with FAT32, Try Joliet, or something else I am unware of??
Any and all help appreciated.

the saddest moment of your life..
I've started a new media project for my grad program and am in the process of collecting stories from peoples life..

The idea is this:
Everybody's got something, someone or a moment in their life where the story is more important than the object.

If any of you would like to add your story or share the link with friends other bloggers, etc.. please do so. The more content I can get the stronger this will be.

Kathy Sierra
Some of you may have heard of Kathy Sierra, programming author (she co-wrote many of the Head First books) and owner of the blog Creating Passionate Users.

She recently started recieving death threats on her blog, followed by a series of posts on other blogs, showing images of her with nooses etc. As a result she's cancelled many of her speaking engagements, as have many other bloggers in support of her.

More information:


I'm really outraged by this. I realise that cyber-bullying exists and can be very nasty, but this seems to be a whole step further. But then there are issues surrounding free speech on the web... A complicated matter.

Thought the ladies here might like to know about it.

Pcpartsandmore.co.uk (warning)
Receptionist was sucked into the world of gaming via the heady lure of a Wii. She went searching Google for a shop selling them online and came across pcpartsandmore.co.uk a company supposedly based out of Blackpool.

Good prices, good delivery right? Everything looks ok, at a glance. Then you look a little closer and something begins to smell bad.

Luckily they had their doubts early and didn't actually place an order. I'm really glad they didn't, considering what I found after checking them out.

Hmmmmm.Collapse )
No concrete evidence that these guys are dodgy as far as taking credit card info and shipping goes but I'd be leery. It looks like some seriously sketchy stuff.

Photoshop or GIMP?
I've got PS Elements at home, and struggled to use it on my old iBook (G4) as it crawwwwled.

My new macbook is (finally) ready but I can't pick it up until Monday.

Once I get it with all of it's 1GB ram glory I'm going to want to start doing picturey type manipulation type stuff.

So should I stick with PS elements (which I know a teeny bit about) or should I dive into GIMP instead ?

What do you use and why?
What are the pros and cons of each?

any help much appreciated.

If you're going to do something controversial...
Then don't be stupid about it:

The calendar features 20 Australian women from the IT industry posing as movie sirens, including the bikini-clad Ursula Andress in the James Bond movie Dr No and the rose petal scene from American Beauty.

But the project's mastermind, Gold Coast-based IT expert Sonja Bernhardt, said today the glossy calendar had been found to have some "embarrassing" mistakes.

Ms Bernhardt said the 15-month calendar had errors in October 2006, with the month starting on Saturday not Sunday, and May 2007 - which starts on a Tuesday not Monday as it should.

Female Gamers & Tech Geekers
There has been conversation about women, tech and gaming.. I am curious outside of these "studies" how many women who currently use tech ie) LJ for purposes other than blogging?

The question is... how many women do you know of "game"? I.E. First-pointer shooters, strategy, real-time turn based games?

How many people do you know of that purchase new computer systems in order to play a game? And how many are women?

What do you use your computer primarily for?

How many computers do you have?

What type of an operating system do you use? (ie. PC, Mac, UNIX)

Career Women
Saw this on the Women In Game Development mailing list this morning and was completely apalled.


I can't believe Forbes let this one fly.

I registered for a free forum account just so I could give them a piece of my mind.

Rant cut & pasted from my LJ.Collapse )
