Where to Find Animated GIFs Online

If you want to make your Web site a little flashier, but don't know Java and don't want to overload your server with resource-consuming bells and whistles, then an animated GIF or two could do the trick. Animated GIFs can look as simple as the old Netscape throbbing 'N' or as complicated as a shuffling pack of cards, but the process for making them is basically the same.

Finding the Middle Ground

The "middle-tier" market is getting crowded with vendors of Web-to-database connectivity products, development tools and databases all trying to cut themselves a slice of the middleware pie. If you haven't faced a purchasing decision on middleware products yet, it's only a matter of time, as three-tier architectures' flexibility, scalability and robust nature win more believers.

XML Ready for Prime Time?

Since the Extensible Markup Language (XML) specification was first proposed in late 1996, it has remained in the headlines as one of the Web’s next big killer applications, with the promise of being a solution for e-commerce, EDI, contextual searching, online data warehouses, and more. But the question remains: Will it emerge as a significant architecture for Internet applications, or fade into the background as have so many technologies that promised to revolutionize the medium?


Ed. - With Microsoft moving so quickly to support XML, you get the idea it's here to stay.

Software For the Birds

Do you realize how smart some birds are? Although their intelligence level is comparable to that of dolphins and chimpanzees, they're tough to teach how to talk. Birds also need a lot of attention. In response, two Bay Area men formed Birdbrain Technology and developed 'Polly Professor.' It's a program to both train and entertain your bird.

Retail Web Sites Pack 'em In

This holiday season online vendors were hopping to meet demand, and for the most part, they seem to have passed the test. Internet merchants report that despite heavier-than-expected sales, they managed to deliver most of their products on time. And so far, not many items are being returned. But the push to deliver packages before Christmas got top executives at many Web storefronts out from behind their desks and into distribution centers to pack boxes.

Oracle8's Integrity-Constraint Enhancements

Integrity constraints are used to ensure that the data in a database table complies with rules you've set to establish accurate and acceptable information for your database. Without integrity constraints, enforcing basic rules for your business data would be complex, if not impossible. Oracle7's already robust implementation of integrity constraints has been improved in Oracle8. This article identifies integrity- constraint issues in Oracle7 and then explains three valuable enhancements in Oracle8.

PC Computing 16 Crashproof Your PC Windows does its best to hide those ugly text-mode screens from you, but every so often one pops up. Or worse, your PC locks up and won't even let you reach a DOS prompt. It takes the right tools to get up, running, and back to the Windows interface--and it helps if you've prepared for disaster.

GO Network

Mickey Mouse entered the portal wars today, and he's ready to fight. GO Network, which blends the old Infoseek Web directory with a new navigation system and lots of Disney-owned content, is now available in a preview edition.

Ed. - GO Networks lateral navigation and access to original content should make this a hit, proving "It's a Small World," afterall.

Women on the Net to Stay

In the last year, studies have made it clear how rapidly women are joining the global network. Various estimates now put women at 40 percent or more of the U.S. online population. Four years ago, women made up only 3 percent, according to Georgia Tech University, which surveys Internet users twice a year.

Ed. - It begs the question, did the content attract the women? Or did the women attract the content? Either way, it's about time, cyberspace mirrored society a little better.
