I just came across a post on John Dowdells blog RE a news item which has gone up too early on the Computerworld site. The subject: ‘Macromedia Director MX 2004’. It certainly makes an interesting read. Having used previous versions of Director earlier during my career I’ve always been of the opinion that Macromedia needed to do something pretty revolutionary with the software in order that it should keep one step ahead of the ever maturing Flash format.
There is something weird going on with PHP includes on a site which I’m working on. I’ve been trying to include a file which will change depending on where you are in the site, therefore the URL of the include is created by combining a number of variables and an existing string.
$page_audience = "5-9s";
$baseURL = "/mysite/";
However, this simply does not work, it throws PHP errors all over the place. In the end I resorted to changing the ‘baseURL’ variable to an absolute file address.
$baseURL = "d:/Inetpub/wwwroot/mysite/";
Surely this isn’t necessary? Sure it works, but it’s a tad ugly. Do I simply have something wrong with my PHP installation on Windows, or am I missing something else?
Drew and I have been having some fun with session variables on PHP for Windows. Intermitent success would be a good description of the situation. Check out Drews post on the subject…

Some interesting thoughts on the release of Flash Communication Server MX over at Actionscript.com, worth a quick read.
