Flex MP3 Player Tutorial

Simple MP3 player tutorial at vipercreations.com

For this tutorial we're going to use the audioManager actionscript class from dhtmlnirvana to play all the sounds.

There are several ways you can do this, but this is probably the simplest.

What we are going to do is create a drop down box which is the song list. The data for the song list is got from an external XML file using an HTTP service.

When the user selects a new song from the dropdown box, the song that is currently playings stops and the new one begins. Our actionscript class knows which song to play using an internal array of songs.

Eclipse: Help Wanted: Test the new download page and packages

From Ian's blog

Something we would like to accomplish during the Europa release is to make it easier for our user community to download Eclipse. The existing download model requires you to start with the SDK and then start adding projects and features. However, for the millions of Eclipse users the SDK is a bit of overkill, if you are really just are using Eclipse as a Java IDE. Or if you want to use Eclipse as a C/C++ IDE it is not that obvious what to download when you visit our download page.

An interesting article where author has collect web sites that offer free web design templates.
A visually appealing website design will not result in lots of recurring visitors if you don't have good content. In contrast bad, old-fashioned, or boring designs may well be accepted by a loyal readership if you have good content. To have both good content and a good design is invaluable.
