I’ve just released PDFObject 2.0. Read more on my blog:
Now, I’m happy to report I’ve created a replacement for the RightClick.js utility, creatively named SWFRightClick. It uses the same approach to handling right-clicks, but does it with a completely new codebase and a few extra goodies. SWFRightClick is compatible with every edition of SWFObject, and is free to use (MIT license).
Check it out on GitHub. I plan to fold it in to my Captivate publishing templates very soon.

By popular demand, I've updated my CaptivateController to work with Adobe Captivate 5 (CP5). Since this is an open-source project, there's no upgrade fee. (What? "Adobe" and "no upgrade fee" in the same paragraph?!) I kid, I kid... I'm a kidder.
I'm always surprised how little people talk about cheating in e-learning; maybe it's a fear of revealing just how easy it can be. The fact is, SCORM -- the most common communication standard in e-learning -- is fairly easy to hack. I've whipped up a proof-of-concept bookmarklet that when clicked will set your SCORM course to complete with a score of 100 (works with both SCORM 1.2 and 2004).
I'm working on an HTML-based course interface that serves up content in an iframe. I had everything working great until I needed to move the content to one domain while hosting the interface on a different domain (kind of a simplified home-brewed CMS approach). BAM! Cross-domain security issues. Course interface dead in the water.
The biggest selling point for this utility is that it not only contains all of the built-in Captivate 'variable' functionality, but it also contains some extra functionality created by chaining some variables together.
