I'm happy 'causeĀ  I found a spell checker I don't have to install, and it works on posting on this forum! (jacuba spell)

I'm also happy because I love to download stuff, and was looking forward to a brush for PDN! Even though it's buggy, it should be given some merit for it's innovation.

I am currently working on a new version and eventually it the beta stage will end and it will be less buggy. :)

Cool! I've got myself a pack of "VISTA" gadgets to use on your desktop etc. They look nice! I mean they are a stand alone exe so there isn't any fuss. runs smoothly. :mrgreen:

Alternatively you could have just used Yahoo Widgets.

I've tried it and it is rubbish.

It's was the slowest application on my PC.

In other news, I learnt wee bit of flash - it really is a wee bit, I know how to drag objects and I intend to make a game out of it - of course it's not going to be good but I'm still new to Adobe Flash CS3.

So you are learning actionscript? You could probably pick up javascript then.

Although IMHO XBaps/Silverlight are 100X better for interactivity applications.

Have you tried out the new Silverlight Microsoft Download Center? It's pretty nice but does have a few errors on the page usually for me.

The Silverlight download center says it works in Firefox. But it doesn't... At least for me.

I'm going to stick with Flash and Java when it comes to web applets until Silverlight gains a more significant install base. And works in Firefox.

XBap comes with .NET 3.0 (and thus Vista) and it works in firefox. IMHO both the Java and Flash included APIs are severely limited and the functionality of .NET is broad.

That's strange. Yet it works on my PC with Firefox and IE6 (I refuse to upgrade to IE7 unless my school updates RM Easylink so there will no longer be a compatibility issue with IE7.)

But what is EasyLink?

The school would have their servers were all users can store their documents. RM Easylink allows you to access the server and access your documents in your school user account from home.

SUM UP: "Remote access to your school work which is stored in the school's servers". Hence the name RM Easylink.

RM Tutor 3 (which I shall explain in a later post) is a very powerful piece of software for monitoring children's computer activities thus all teachers use it when they take a class into an ICT suite for whatever reason.

My watchful eye has even seen teachers logging into SIMS.net which I will also explain if you want me to later. This is how I know a lot of the first names of my teachers :!: :wink:

SIMS.net
We had that at our secondary school. Talk about problematic.

And the EasyLink, we have something similar-ish: we can access our e-mail account and the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which is a large repository of resources, from college. The teachers (or students for that matter) upload to the VLE, and we can access the uploaded content from anywhere. PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, PDFs, and the like.

Would be a joyful day if we could reach our network space the same way.

So what are the compatibility issues you are experiencing with IE6/7? I'm only curious, there is large possibility I won't be able to offer any assistance towards it, though.

When using a browser, when you go to your schools Easylink site, a username & password box should pop up. with ie7 this doesn't happen therefore you can't log in. That's why I use IE6 and I always will.

If anyone uses IE7 , please try and access website. What should happen on IE6 is a password & user name box should come up like this:

But on IE7 this won't happen.

As for teachers first names, I know 11+ of them (most of them are through teachers logging into SIMS.net as you need to enter your full name and your password (obviously)). I'm surprised teachers forget to switch off the projector when logging in.

By the way, I can make Easylink work on FF using IE Tab since it doesn't actually work on FF.

Ah, yes. The VLE is great, pretty much the entire of my year go on it every night to chat.
