Macromedia Flash 5 for Windows & Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide

This is one of the first books to hit Australian shelves that deals with Flash 5, and the punters have been keen to get their hands on it.

The price tag may have increased, but so has the content. The Visual QuickStart Guides (VQSG) have been very popular in the graphics and Web design industries. The author, Katherine Ulrich, also wrote the previous version on Flash 4. The VQSG format, for the unfamiliar, is characterised by brief points and an array of screenshots on the features of the program. The format is ideal for beginners, as it is very easy to get what you need from the book.

The book comprises 16 chapters, from launching the program through to adding sound to movies. Advanced scripting topics, however, are really beyond the scope of this book and may not be much help. As a result, the only criticism is that it may lack some detail that advanced users might like further explained.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
