Interactive Bathroom Planner

I went into the local Reece Bathroom showroom this morning to pick up their Autumn Sale Catalogue because my dad will be renovating our bathroom. Whilst I was there I also picked up a flyer that directed me to the Reece online Bathroom Planner. I've just had a play with the Macromedia Flash based planner and it's very comprehensive. It lists the products available at Reece and where it can be placed in the dimensions of your bathroom (perfectly to scale mind you). I'm wondering if it is linked to the Flash file as part of a database system? Any thoughts on this would be great.
This is a great tool for tradesmen and renovators to design and plan their bathroom without having to go to the drawing board. I'm sure my dad is going to love this tool!
To have a play of this planner go to http://www.reece.com.au/bathrooms/planner and click on the bathroom planner button at the top right hand corner.

Creating Dynamic Web Page with XSLT and Dreamweaver 8

I've just finished attending an online tutorial of creating a dynamic webpage with XSLT using Dreamweaver 8 (1hr), this session was delivered and recorded using Macromedia Breeze. It was quite informative and I have learnt quite a lot, particularly how InDesign CS2 can be used to create an XML file easily! We need to get InDesign CS2 at work! If anyone is interested in looking at the session it is available at this link http://mmse.breezecentral.com/p83744480
Having missed the tutorial on creating a website using CSS, I hoped that it was recorded but unfortunately it wasn't. The next free session is on June 15th and is on learning Flash 8 actionscript. For anyone interested you can go here http://www.adobe.com/au/events to check out all the sessions coming up.
