About six weeks ago, I wrote a post about some issues I was encountering with iframes and cross-domain security. I promised I would write about whatever workaround I decided to use; this post details that workaround.

Adobe is investigating the needs of Captivate users regarding how you would like to store your quiz interaction and score data. As you may know, Captivate already provides a mechanism for sending this data to an LMS via SCORM or AICC (and a couple of other options), but the Captivate team also knows that some of you are asking for more.
They want to hear from YOU about your situation and what you would like to be able to do with the Captivate score and interaction data. For example, would you store data directly to a database without using an LMS, or perhaps use web-based services to store the data?
This is your chance to tell them exactly what you’d like to see. Please write up a short summary of the functionality you’d like to see, and a clear example of how you would use it, if it were available. Be sure to use a valid email address when posting so Adobe can contact you for clarification if needed.
Here’s a quick rundown on the dos and don’ts.
Here are some great web-based alternatives to Microsoft Word and Google Docs.
I had a hard time sorting this out, so I figured I’d post it in case anyone else needs to know.
Assumptions: You have Parallels v4 for Mac, and have already created an Ubuntu 8.10 image.
Excellent resource: Should I use tables for layout?
Cool news for SWFObject users: the swfobject.js file is now being hosted on Google’s servers as part of the AJAX Libraries API. This means you can directly link to the file on a Google server instead of maintaining a copy on your own server.
