Web site software - great price.


Recommended Posts

Well after doing some research I decided to purchase Dreamweaver MX 2k4 for development of our future web site.

I went to CompUsa to purchase a HD communication cable and while I was there I checked the price for DW. $497.00! After getting up off the floor, I told the nice clerk that I would think about it.

Went to our local community college here and bought it for $98.00. Same product. And no, they never asked if I was student (must be due to the fact that I'm svelte and exceedingly handsome [:-bigeyes2] ). I also purchased XP a while back from them as well.

Try your local CC out for software next time.

Signing off, your man in the street.

Sea lion... there's an image. Cheeto orange beard w/ a remote control on the flipper.

As far as Dreamweaver goes...when NASA calls to ask me my opinion on the heat tile condition for the next shuttle launch I'll be ready to make my own website. There are some things I just don't want to know how to do. Actually, I do know how to make a website. Send an Email to Mike Brown @ Devwave and promise to follow up w/ a credit card number. I know when I'm out of my league and I almost always know who's best for the job when I am.

Funny you should mention this Chad because I got called in a couple of weeks ago to provide risk management support to the new project team designing the Shuttle RCC (leading edge heat shield) On Orbit Repair project. We are developing a kit that the Astronauts can use to fix cracks and holes in the leading edge of the wing that might occur during launch.

We will call you if we get stuck. It is easier that designing a website.

Hi Terry,

First of all, there's no way my wife would let me go to the local CC on my own. Have you seen college girls lately?

Even though the visit will be visually compromised, I'll take her and go looking for XP so I can stop begging photo enhancements from busy people.

As far as Bill being a genuine rocket scientist... my business cards now read "associated with NASA scientists, on the cutting edge of home technology"

Bill, I'll need a tile for a paper weight to prove my affiliation.

I'm serious Bill. I NEED a tile.

BTW, nice to meet you and I look forward to exploiting your knowledge in the future.

Hey Bill,

I'm sending you some of my wifes' mashed potatoes. Once you cut the container off, run a few tests on it...try to remember that it was once a fairly malleable substance. I'll bet you a steak the stuff can survive re-entry. [:-mischievous] [:-hot]

Hardly a day goes by that I don't find something funny to laugh at on this forum. Some of you guys might be in the wrong profession. If TIJ ever has a comedy award, I have at least two guys to nominate.

I've often wondered... what kind of a rejoinder you come back with when you're talking to someone you've never met at an HI convention and the person says, "Well, it isn't rocket science, you know."

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

It really happens often but my internal reaction is, "Thank God". Real rocket science is a very narrow band of knowledge that is so complex and specialized that anyone fully absorbed in the practice is about as interesting as a fence post. They are commonly referred to as Nerds.

I operate on the fringes of rocket science, more in the realm of rocket engineering. Limited exposure to real rocket scientist however can be amusing.

Back about 10 years ago I was asked to go meet with some of our PhD's (Nerds) who were working on a deep space anti-matter propulsion system. These guys wanted to put some anti-matter, created at Fermi Labs in Chicago, in the back of a truck and bring to Alabama to play with. They wanted me to tell them what safety precautions should be taken.

My first reaction was that the evacuation of about 50 million people from along the route might be a good idea but I would need more information about anti-matter since my only exposure to the subject was from Superman comic books 40 years ago.

When one of the scientist started off the lesson with, "Of course you know, E=mc(squared)" I almost laughed out loud because I could vividly remember sitting in high school physics class trying to understand the ramifications of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and finally telling the Mr. Buckner that I could never imagine a real life situation where I would need to know this stuff. Of course I was a dumb jock so he couldn’t disagree.

Most everyone has seen the explosion of the shuttle Challenger and the huge fireball created by the rapid combustion of the fuel in the external tank. Well they explained to me that one gram of anti-matter has the energy equivalence of 10,000 shuttle external tanks loaded with fuel.

Of course from my extensive reading on the subject in the Marvel science book series, I did know that when matter and anti-matter meet, all hell breaks loose. Now what I have is a group of scientist who can’t walk down the hall without pouring coffee all over themselves, the floor and even the walls, wanting to bring the most powerful material known know to man, down a 1,000 miles of interstate highway in a panel van without spilling one molecule.

Seriously it was not that dangerous but I recommended a plane.

Brain, Would your wife be interested in being an Astronaut. She could be a mission specialist for on orbit repair materials.
