Shockwave Book Put To Work

I was musing recently about long ago doing multimedia development for the web using Macromedia Director and Shockwave as the playback engine in the browser... and I recalled that I am still using on the classic books.

 

Darrel Plant's Shockwave: Breathe New Life into Your Web Pages came out way back in 1996 as the first book about Fried Green Director. I think I got a copy for maybe doing a review or having some content bundled into the CD-ROM. That is in the dusty neuron category.

 

Anyhow, Darrel's book is still very useful- here it is used to lift up the Apple XServe that hosts CogDogBlog to give the machine a bit more airflow underneath. Another Shockwave book holds up the other end, but's it far back to bother looking.

 

And in trying to be clever taking the photo, I accidentally popped out the disk drive that holds the web content, so the server went down in thick back smoke., Reboot, reboot, reboot....
