As the internet economy heats up again to the approximate temperature of the surface of the sun, quite a few aspiring publishers and newer content sites have asked me about how to target their advertising geographically.

Geotargeting is one of the most commonly used targeting options, so regardless of whether you're an ad seller or an ad buyer, you should be familiar with geotargeting and how it works. There are a variety of methods used to determine the location of a web page viewer, and not all methods are created equal. If you're a seller, you want to offer the most accurate targeting possible to your advertising clients. If you're a buyer, you want to ensure that the targeted ads you buy are consistent with your client's expectations for spill (ads served into markets other than the ones you're targeting).

ActionScript Unshift method

To add one or more elements to the begining of an array, you will have to use unshift method of Array class.

var albums:Array = new Array("Record1","Record2","Record3","Record4");

trace(albums); //Record5,Record1,Record2,Record3,Record4

Animations in JavaScript

Today, professional designers use Flash to create dazzling animations. In the glory days before AJAX was in vogue and when animated gifs were the "cause célèbre" of avant garde Photoshop gurus, we had JavaScript.

There are two methods of interest here: setInterval () and clearInterval().

Presumably, we would need to play the frames of a sequence in a loop. We would call
setInterval() like this:

var Interval = setInterval ("MultiSelect()", 500);

By saving a reference to the current interval, we can pause the animation with clearInterval().

clearInterval (Interval);

Help Authoring suite

I have looked into help authoring suites for some time. Of course, there is the well known RoboHelp ( and the free Win Help tool that comes with Visual Studio.

Are there any suites that provide descent features with a descent price?

.NET UI Suite

I have been looking for a .NET UI suite for some time. Some people suggested Infragistics. For me, I have found the package from DevExpress to be the best one of all. I am particularly impressed by the printing components. Those of you who struggled with printing in Visual Studio 2003 understand the importance of an easy-to-use printing suite. Although GDI+ is beautiful in theory, it does take some getting use to.

There are some many cool things about this suite. I don't know where to start. Most impressive is their implementation of the Office 2007 interface. Not only is it faithful to the appearance and implementation details of the ribbon, the performance is superb. This product will definitely add years to your peace of mind.
