Newbie in over her head

Hi all,
I am a small business owner that bought a flash template
online thinking I could customize it and launch it all on my own. I
bought Adobe Flash cs3 thinking that it would make my life so much
easier, but it didnt, as I know nothing about flash.
So now I am sitting here, with what I believe to be a
butchered up template that I spent a disgusting amount of hours on,
and now I dont even know how to load it to my website. I had to
remove the contact us form, as I couldnt get it to work.
I feel embarrassed that I thought I could do this, but now I
have put too much time in it to walk away. Not to mention the
expense of the flash program.
If anyone is willing to look at it, I would be very
appreciative. More importantly though, I would like to learn
through this, as I am very interested in being self-sufficient.
Thanks

Hi kcwegner
Dont stress too much, Flash isnt all that hard to understand.
Although, from reading your first post..
"So now I am sitting here, with what I believe to be a
butchered up template"
I sure hope you have back up copies of the template. =)
Also, about the contact form, that form was most likely
working...the catch is...that Flash forms ONLY work on a server
(online) they dont work locally (on your comouter...even if you are
connected to the net)
So dont throw it out just yet.
Amy, is right.
We are going to need more specific details about your
problems if we are going to have any chance to help you.
By the way, Welcome to Flash =)

    Ok... Go in and change all the left aligns to center on the
    tables, that
    should work.
    Below is the code for the changed page, you can cut and paste

  • Sister spilled nail polish remover over her MacBook...

    So my sister wasn't thinking it was a bad a idea to be watching a YouTube video on her MacBook Pro while using nail polish remover and keeping the bottle open. Low and behold she knocked it over and it spilled all over her keyboard. I took the liberty of attempting to check the computer, albeit very simple, by just taking off a few keys to see if any pooled up. No remover was found under any of the keys likely due to it containing acetone (evaporates quickly.)
    The MacBook Pro shut down a few moments after the spill, sadly. I know it has to do with the acetone likely dissolving wires, parts of the circuit board, etc. I also know AppleCare doesn't cover accidents, but her AC expired in July. My main question: What are the repair costs? I know it's going to be pricey, for sure. When I tell her the whole deal I want to able to supply her with options. If she wants to repair it, go for a cheaper but good-for-now laptop, etc.
    Thanks for the potential help!

    HowWeStult,
    So the important thing is not to try to turn on the MBP (As mentioned by Sparkleberry).  If possible you should take the bottom off and disconnect the battery. Use iFixIt as has been mentioned.
    It would depend on what the solvent was in the remover. Earlier it was acetone and now they're using something chemically similar:
    http://www.chemistryislife.com/the-chemistry-of-nail-polish-remover
    "       Acetone (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen) C3H6O
    Ethyl Acetate- colorless, flammable liquid
    Butyl Acetate- production of lacquers
    Aloe Vera- protects and conditions the nails
    Glycerin- helps nails and skin from drying out
    Cetyl Acetate- skin conditioning agent and emollient
    Petroleum- chemical compound with 5 membered lactam
    Phthalic Anhydride- made from crystalline "
    So with the composition listed here:
    First 3, short term - dissolving of the membrane, insulation between the membranes of the keyboard.
    Damage to the connectors (plastic) from the keyboard and between components to the logic board.
    Aloe Vera, Cetyl Acetate and Phthalic Anhydride, long term - possible hydroscopic action which would lead to eventual corrosion of keyboard and logic board.
    Depending on how much nail polish remover was spilled the consequences would be - total damage to the keyboard, possibility of resurrection of the logic board depending on the long term effects I describe. In general NPR is so volatile that it would evaporate very quickly. So the possibility of saving the logic board is high.
    Keyboard is another issue. In that case the trace from the power switch would be so damaged that you couldn't turn on the computer. There are usually pads to enable startup directly from the logic board.
    But pull that bottom off and disconnect the battery and let it dry out.
    "The MacBook Pro shut down a few moments after the spill, sadly. I know it has to do with the acetone likely dissolving wires, parts of the circuit board"
    I can't think of anything that the acetone would necessarily damage that's on the logic board. The "long term" components might have reached the logic board and caused the shutdown since they would be mildly conductive.

  • If I buy a MacBook Air in America, can I use it over here in the U.K. without any software problems?

    If I buy a MacBook Air in America, can I use it over here in the U.K. without any software problems?

    It is true that they are not region free with DVD's even though they let you switch the region 3 or 4 times and then it locks on the last region you choose forever.
    Software is a different story, I myself own a MacBook Pro from Europe but I install software I buy from the US.
    I have friends that own Macs from the US and they live in Europe and they don't have any problems.
    I have a friend from New Zealand with a MacBook and when he comes over in Europe he has installed European software.
    So you see, I think a software region problem if you ever have any should be extremely rare.

  • *N OVER MY HEAD! my iTunes library disappeared from my PC, TS said uninstall then reinstall, before I reinstalled though my ipad 2 said NOT ENOUGH MEMORY as I tried to update 1 app. What do I do now?

    Apparently, something went way wrong SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW... and now I'm afraid of losing ALL MY MEDIA considering I have NO ITUNES ON MY LAPTOP! I followed all appropriate steps found in trouble shooting, when I reinstalled iTunes though, the reinstalled music on my pc was a handful of songs that were triplicates, even listed some five TIMES! And maybe a total of 20-25 different songs, a fraction of what I had initially!
    *N OVER MY HEAD! my iTunes library disappeared from my PC, TS said uninstall then reinstall, before I reinstalled though my ipad 2 said NOT ENOUGH MEMORY as I tried to update 1 app. What do I do now?

    1, you can't at the moment, though with iOS 5 in the Autumn, from http://www.apple.com/ios/ios5/features.html#photos :
    Even organize your photos in albums — right on your device
    2, by removing it from you synced from and re-syncing. Only photos taken with the iPad, copied to it via the camera connection kit, or saved from emails/websites etc can be deleted directly on the iPad (either via the trashcan icon in the top right corner if viewing the photo in full screen, or via the icon of the box with the arrow coming out of it in thumbnail view)
    3, the location of the photos that you synced to the iPad should be listed on the iPad's Photos tab when connected to your computer's iTunes.
    4, you can copy the photos from your iPad to your computer : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083 . You should also be able to delete them from the iPad as part of the transfer process to your computer, and it's then your choice whether to add them to your sync photo list so as to copy them back to the iPad. Copying them to your computer would allow you to organise them into folders and therefore be able to sync them back into separate albums.
    5, I don't use Dropbox either. There are some third-party browser apps in the iTunes App Store that allow you to download pages so that you can view them when offline e.g. Atomic Web (the whole page is saved within Atomic Web, it doesn't place a photo into the Photos app)
    6, deleting content should help. If you remove an app from your iPad then you also remove the content that it's got on the iPad - so if you then decide to reinstall it back onto the iPad then you will need to manually add back any content that you want in it. None of the Apple built-in apps (including Photos) can be removed from the iPad

  • Helpppp From way over here in Southeast Asia!!!

    Hi guys!
    Thanks so much in advance for considering my inquiry...
    I recently moved from one house to another and after using the laptop in the new house, everytime I plug in the jack, the whole laptop starts to vibrate....not violently, but consistently, similar to holding a drill in your hand when it's on. This occurs all over the machine. At first I thought it was maybe the fan or hardrive acting up, but realized that when I shut the laptop off, the vibrations continue until I actually unplug the jack. I tried this at my next door neighbour's house also and the same thing happened, plus every wall socket in both houses.
    It can be very difficult at times to get an informative answer over here in this continent where PC'S seem to rule and Macs are still somewhat of a novelty, therefore, I feel like I'm an island and nowhere to turn! ;(
    I'm afraid to use the computer (although I need it desperately, as my job depends on it), as I'm worried that if I continue to use it, the vibrations will finally take their toll and everything shuts down and crashes. I can't imagine it's doing any good for the components inside??? If I use just the battery it's fine, but of course the battery will eventually die and I'll need to plug it in again to recharge.
    I think it may be a power source problem, but is there anybody out there who may have some idea of how to resolve this, before I lose much more income? Has this happned to anyone else??
    Thanks again so much for your thoughts, insight and opinions..I really sure could use it right now ;))
    Kind regards,
    Mark

    Dear Friend,
    Thank you for the welcome to the discussions board and also for your time in replying with your perspective and thoughts. Well, you wouldn't believe what the solution was to the vibrations.......all that was needed was a piece of carpet under my feet on the tile floor! Too funny eh?
    Here in the tropics, people very rarely have carpets in their houses because it's much cooler to have tiles and also to avoid mold and dampness collecting in the carpet fibers. So when you walk around in barefeet in the house and sit down at the computer, there's enough static electricity generating through your body that causes the vibrations when you plug in the jack to the laptop. Sounded reasonable, I suppose, but was still a weeeeee bit skeptical until I grabbed a piece of carpet from the garage. Low and behold - it works!
    I also picked up a UPS unit just to be safe also, so now with the combination of UPS, a 3x3ft piece of shag and a pair of thick rubber flip flops for good measure - the problem has been resolved ;))
    Thanks so much again for your consideration and your response - very grateful!
    Mark
    P.S. My old house actually happened to have carpet, thus never having the vibrating laptop, but when I moved to the new house that just had tiles, that concept never entered my mind...learn something new everyday.

  • Draw image over jtable header

    hello, I am trying to draw an image (its a little image of a custom sort indicator) over the header of a jTable, but after extensive reading of the api docs about TableCellRenderer and DefaultTableCellRenderer I cannot come to a solution.
    What I want is something like this: let the renderer do the paint and after that I grab the graphics and draw the image over it...
    please let me know if I need to restate my problem

    I extended DefaultTableCellRenderer like you say in your article, but while doing so it lost the default Metal L&F. It become like an ordinary cell of the table. Below is the code:
    class DefaultTableHeaderCellRenderer extends javax.swing.table.DefaultTableCellRenderer {
       @Override
       public Component getTableCellRendererComponent(JTable table, Object value,
             boolean isSelected, boolean hasFocus, int row, int column)
          super.getTableCellRendererComponent(table, value,
                isSelected, hasFocus, row, column);
          //setIcon(getIcon(table, column));
          setBorder(UIManager.getBorder("TableHeader.cellBorder"));
          return this;
        protected Icon getIcon(JTable table, int column) {
           ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon("imagens/sortdown.png");
           return icon;
    }then in my class I call:
    this.getTableHeader().setDefaultRenderer(new DefaultTableHeaderCellRenderer());You can see I commented setIcon. It works, the icon is drawn, but this is not what I am after, I wanted to draw the icon over the Metal L&F. Also, is there a way to draw the icon at a specified position?
    thanks for the help

  • If I buy a laptop in Canada will it work over here in the UK?

    i was wondering if i bought a laptop over in canada would it work over here??

    I got my last 3 Laptops (yes, 3 toshibas) from the States and use them in Europe. Everything is working as it should.
    The only differences would be the TV out ... that is in Europe Pal, and in Canada NTSC, but there is no need to worry as this can be usually adjusted from inside the BIOS settings. (please have this confirmed through owners)
    Also, the Canada DVD drive works in a different Region than our European Region 2, but this can be changed 4 times until it is set permanently.
    The powersupply is auto-switching too, allowing you to operate your laptop from 110 Volts - 232 Volts without need to purchase a different model. Only a hardware adaptor (2 Euro max) might be necessary to make it fit inside our plugs.
    The only problem that you might face is locating spare parts (mainly the chasis). I have seen some models that have different chasis in Europe and the Foreign. But in case you will need something, you will still have access to proper spare parts as they are widely spread throughout the internet.
    Good bye and good buy ;)

  • In waaaay over my head!!!!! HELP!!!!!!

    The company that I work for hired a vendor to upgrade our wireless environment. That company purchased the equipment but then charged a rediculous amount of money to set it up. So of course I was given the task. Though this went way over my head I took it on.
    I was given a Cisco 1121 ACS server, 2 Cisco 5500 WAC controllers, and 10  1042 LWAPs  and was told to do the best I can. I was able put the ACS server and WAC boxes on the network. At that point I figured that there was something else that needed to be done. But as a test I connected a LWAP which i set an SSID and I couldnt connect to it no matter what level of authentication I used, even unsecured. My question is do I need to setup a RADIUS server on the ACS box to authenticate???
    I've been reading up on the ACS for a couple days and I know it can be used for device and user management. But I assumed that we were only using it to manage our wireless environment, so it wasn't really 'necessary'. Idealy, we simply want to broadcast our company SSID and have devices connect to it using their network credentials.                
    i'm not really sure what I need to do next. I have yet to contact Cisco though we do have a support. I just want to make sure all things are in place before I contact them
    any help would be GREATLY appreciated
    Thank you

    hey Matthew, I'm sorry to hear you're getting slammed like that,I would try to get the following questions answer when contacting support at Cisco.
    *we simply want to broadcast our company SSID and have devices connect to it using their network credentials.*
    based on your comment above  we need to take care of how the ACS will be configure to  authenticate users, if you want users to login with their network credentials you really need to configure ACS to work with your company user database (note:there's a whole support team at Cisco  for ACS and database  set up)
    You may wish to investigate Cisco Secure Access Control Server for Windows Configuring LDAP:
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...80092566.shtml
    Cisco's ACS Introduction:
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...086/index.html
    at this point the following reading should be very helpful as well :
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk722/tk809/technologies_configuration_example09186a0080665d18.shtml#c4
    second:
    there's a big need to clarify what type of supplicants(end-users), will be found on your wireless network phone,windows,mac..etc) in order to have an idea what type of  security  design will work the best when things start getting clearer.
    note: I understand your company still has the Access points on the box? if that is the case a wireless site survey will be needed to install them properly ( I understand the money concern but many companies go without a survey and  it is more cost to have someone to fix the mess later on) a site survey is componed of  deep analysis of blueprints of the building, all about site survey's  itself (hardware and software tools  (spectrum analyzer..etc) and  of course the knowledge to deploy the AP properly on their right RF, Channels.. etc  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_site_survey)
    there are good design books around as well.
    wish you good luck!!

    You can see the current version in Settings > General > About > Version. If it shows iOS 5+ then you should have a Settings > General > Software Update for direct update on the iPad, if it's iOS 4 then you can only update via your computer's iTunes.
    To update via your computer, connect the iPad to your computer's iTunes and copy any purchases off it to your computer via File > Transfer Purchases (File > Devices > Transfer Purchases on iTunes 11). You may also want to copy photos and any important documents off the iPad as well e.g. via the file sharing section at the bottom of the device's apps tab when connected to iTunes, via wifi, email, dropbox etc - they should be included in the backup, but it's best to have a copy of them outside of the backup just in case. You can then force a backup of the iPad by right-clicking the iPad 'Device' on the left-hand side of iTunes and selecting 'Backup'.
    Then start the update by selecting the iPad on the left-hand side of iTunes (on iTunes 11 you can enable the left-hand sidebar via option-command-S on a Mac, control-S on a PC), and on the Summary tab on the right-hand side clicking the Check For Updates button
    Updating to iOS 5+ : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972
    An iPad 2 will be updated to iOS 6.1.3, that is the only version that is 'signed' by signed for it

  • Help, Java newbie a little over my head with LDAP

    I'm actually a network admin but I've been dabling in Java for a little while now.
    I am trying to write an app that will allow me to insert and remove attributes to entries in Active Directory.
    I have found some sample code which I have altered to make a "proof of concept" before I start on the actuall app I want.
    The problem I am having is writing into the AD. I can query entries with no error but when I try a modification I get an "DSA is unwilling to perform" LDAPException. I am pretty sure it's not a permissions issue but from reading stuff on here I am begnining to think that it may have something to do with SSL connections. There is commented out code below where I experimented with this but I was unable to connect the the AD when this was in. "unable to connect to the directory server error".
    If anyone can offer me any advice I would be most grateful.
    package LDAPTest;
    import netscape.ldap.*;
    import java.util.*;
    import com.novell.service.ndssdk.jndi.ldap.ssl.*;
    // Simple program to experiment with searching LDAP
    public class FilterSearch
    public static void main(String[] args)
    if(args.length != 6)
    System.out.println("Usage: java FilterSearch " +
    "<host> <port> "+
    "<authdn> <password> "+
    "<basedn> <filter> ");
    System.exit(1);
    String host = args[0];
    int port = Integer.parseInt(args[1]);
    String authid = args[2];
    String authpw = args[3];
    String base = args[4];
    String filter = args[5];
    String[] ATTRS = {"memberOf"};
    int status = -1;
    //SSL experiment that would not connect to the AD server.
    //LDAPConnection ld = new LDAPConnection(new LDAPSSLSocketFactory("com.novell.service.ndssdk.jndi.ldap.ssl.LdapSecureSocketFactory"));
    LDAPConnection ld = new LDAPConnection();
    System.out.println("done connection");
    try
    //Connect to server and authenticate
    ld.connect(host, port,authid,authpw);
    System.out.println("Search filter = " +filter);
    LDAPSearchResults res = ld.search(base, ld.SCOPE_SUB, filter, null, false);
    //Loop on results until complete
    while(res.hasMoreElements())
    try
    //Next Directory entry
    LDAPEntry entry = res.next();
    prettyPrint(entry, ATTRS, ld);
    status=0;
    catch(LDAPReferralException e)
    System.out.println(e);
    continue;
    catch(LDAPException e)
    System.out.println(e.toString() );
    continue;
    LDAPAttribute atrib = new LDAPAttribute("memberOf", "CN=Tight VNC,OU=Staging Transmitter Channels,DC=marimba,DC=local");

    System.out.println(ld.isAuthenticated());
    try{

    System.out.println(e.toString());
    System.exit(status);
    public static void prettyPrint(LDAPEntry entry, String[] attrs, LDAPConnection ld)
    System.out.println("DN: " + entry.getDN());
    //Use array to pick attributes. We could have
    //enumerated them all user LDAPEntry.getAttributes
    //but this gives us control of the display order
    for(int i = 0; i < attrs.length; i++)
    LDAPAttribute attr = entry.getAttribute( attrs);
    if (attr == null )
    System.out.println(attrs[i] + " not present");
    continue;
    Enumeration enumVals = attr.getStringValues();
    //Enumerate on values for this attribute
    boolean hasVals = false;
    while ((enumVals!=null) && enumVals.hasMoreElements())
    String val = (String)enumVals.nextElement();
    System.out.println(attrs[i] + ": " + val);

    System.out.println(attrs[i] + " has no values");
    System.out.println("----------------------");

    OK, I have learned a little about JNDI today and have attempted to implement this using JNDI instead.
    I am now getting the OperationNotSupportedException when attempting to add an attribute to an item in Active Directory.
    here's the code, can anybody who has managed to add data into AD help with this?
    cheers.

    env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, args[0]);
    env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, args[1]);

    for (NamingEnumeration ae = attrs.getAll(); ae.hasMore();)
    Attribute attr = (Attribute)ae.next();
    System.out.println("attribute: " + attr.getID());
    /* Print each value */
    for (NamingEnumeration e = attr.getAll(); e.hasMore();System.out.println("value: " + e.next()));
    // Specify the changes to make
    ModificationItem mod[] = new ModificationItem[1];
    mod[0] = new ModificationItem(DirContext.ADD_ATTRIBUTE,
    new BasicAttribute("memberOf", "CN=Tight VNC,OU=Staging Transmitter Channels,DC=marimba,DC=local"));
    ctx.modifyAttributes("CN=smstest0005,CN=MarimbaComputers,CN=Computers,DC=marimba,DC=local", mod);
    // Find the surname attribute ("memberOf") and print it

  • Performance Setup and Setting up SSDs and HDDs. PLEASE HELP! Newbie over here!

    I am new to all of this Adobe setups and learning computer hardware. So please go easy on me.
    First question. What would be the best way to setup my computer for the best performance when using After Effects and Premiere at the same time? I really don't understand this. What's the best options here when I only have 16 GB of RAM?
    Second Question. How should I set my drives up? This is what I think to be correct but I would love a second opinion.
    And also what's the best way to set this up for Premiere?

  • Hi all. I think I am under attach from a phishing scheme. In over my head here. I think the apple experts are too at least at the stores. I need to securely reset my appleid so my iphone doesn't become compromised and become a paperweight! Can u help?

    My iphone 4 and my Compaq laptop are acting strangely and I am not sure who I can trust. I am running Kapersky software on the laptop. Using a shared wireless access system that I do not maintain. How can I securely update my appleid, my iphone4 OS etc. Need help! Can you help? Can I get multiple responses?

    Why do you "need" to reset your Apple ID? IOS devices (like your iPhone) are pretty much protected from viruses and other intrusions (unless you have a jailbroken device). You need to state what it is you are needing to do a little more clearly. Updating your AppleID and you iPhone are two entirely different things.
    What is it that you want to do? And again, why do you think you need to change your AppleID (or update it), and when you say "update" your AppleID what, exactly do you mean?
