Dreamweaver Pong

Remember that classic computer game, Pong? Here's a fun new twist, in the form of an Easter Egg:

1. Fire up Dreamweaver on a PC.
2. Make sure that your computer's sound is turned up so you can hear this.
3. Open any file (ones that have lots of text and/or graphics are especially nice to use).
4. Click within some text in design view so the (default) text Property Inspector is showing.
5. On the Property Inspector, just to the right of the color swatch (that controls the text color), is a place where you would normally type in a hex color value.
6. In that textbox type the word 'dreamweaver' and hit the Enter key. (Hint: move your cursor up and down with the mouse but don't click on the mouse buttons.)

Accessibility Issues

the domain So, I was given the opportunity to work from home on Friday. That same day, my work-neighbor took the day off.

I came to work today and found my normally 10x8 foot cubicle was now an 8x20 foot fortress! Dalbir and I can now Step Up to get into our "domain".

Dalbir filed a bug on it.

They gone done turned back the clock

I Didn't Vote for Schwarzenegger
But he won anyway"
