ADMIN: filtering certain attachment types

Hi everyone,

With the great help of Michael Bartlett I've configured both the Discuss@
and Workgroup@ lists so that only a specific type of attachments can get
through. If an attachment doesn't match a specific mime type it will not be
allowed onto the list.

image, office apps, pdf, flash are still allowed through.

PIF, ZIP, and EXE are NOT allowed through (e.g.)

For the most part people shouldn't be sending attachments at all through
this list of any type ... but there might be cases where it is necessary and
I don't want to eliminate it at all.

Job advertising in the main discussion forum

Hi all,

I have seen a lot of jobs advertised in the discussion forum, no doubt as people want to avoid the charge. Is this seen as acceptable by members and moderators? I've had to stop advertising with the introduction of the fee as recruiter as the ROI is not there for us, but it's a little unfair for those who are paying or not paying and refraining to post to see others posting here instead.

animation patterns for things moving

I'm looking for good examples of an item moving from one place to another and how to make that clear to the user. The specific example is a selected line within a grid; the user will click an "accept" button on that line, and then the item will leave the grid of items to be reviewed and appear in a grid of approved items. Has anyone seen a nice animation that could help make it clear what is happening?

Adobe/Macromedia drop FreeHand

This just in from Cnet...

"Macromedia drops FreeHand from bundle

Macromedia executives cited "extensive research with our customers" as the
reason behind the decision, and not its impending acquisition by Adobe
Systems--which current sells a competing product called Illustrator.

UCD, UX and Usability Courses in London (3 for 2)

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Thanks to everyone who completed our courses survey questionnaire. Oliver Pink at SAP was the lucky winner of the Amazon voucher.

Based on the feedback from the survey, we've set up a regular programme of UCD, UX, usability and related soft skills courses in London. We may extend this to other locations if demand dictates, but we are always willing to run courses in-house or in specific locations if requested.
