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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
