Link Checker

What it does

The link checker reads an HTML or XHTML document and extracts a list of anchors and links.

It checks that no anchor is defined twice.

It then checks that all the links are dereferenceable, including the fragments. It warns about HTTP redirects, including directory redirects.

It can check recursively a part of a Web site.

There is a command line version and a CGI version. They both support HTTP basic authentication. This is achieved in the CGI version by passing through the authorization information from the user browser to the site tested.

Moving Image Gateway > Science and Technology

The Moving Image Gateway (MIG) is a new service that collects together websites that relate to moving images and sound and their use in higher and further education. The sites are classified by academic discipline, some forty subjects from Agriculture to Women's Studies, collected within the four main categories of Arts & Humanities, Bio-Medical, Social Sciences and Science & Technology. Each site has been evaluated and described by the BUFVC's Information Service, which regularly checks and updates the database. Sites are highlighted which have video or audio streaming. There are some 600 sites on the MIG database at present, and it continues to grow at the rate of ten per month.

Paper Works, Still

What is all this nonsense about totally digital conferences and schools? This article explores the absurdity (and marketing aspects) of digital tyrannies in contrast to the ongoing value of technologies such as books, sheets of paper, marking pens, white boards, post-it notes and easels.

Full Size Animation 85 KB

Our radar images show the location of rain in relation to local features such as the coastline, with different colours used to depict rainfall intensity. For example royal blue represents light drizzle, while red is used to depict very heavy rain (possibly containing hailstones). There are six levels of rainfall intensity shown - see the colour-coded key below each radar image. The images are in scales of 128 km radius and 256 km radius. State boundaries are indicated, as are abbreviated state and town names. We strongly recommend that you refer to Interpreting Weather Watch Radar Images for further information. 

Radar images are normally updated every 10 minutes, however note that there are full and part-time radars. Part-time radars have scheduled daily outages.

The Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) is a new professional body for teachers established by the Victorian Institute of Teaching Act 2001.
It will regulate and promote the profession of teaching to raise the status of teaching and build the morale of teachers.
All teachers employed in government, Catholic and independent schools will be required to be registered with the Institute.
The VIT will be the single registration authority for all teachers and replaces the teacher registration function of the Registered Schools Board.
It will be a statutory body operating along similar lines to other bodies which regulate professions such as nursing, medicine, law and architecture.

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia

14 June 2003

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia that is being written collaboratively by the readers of this web site.
The site is a WikiWiki, meaning that anyone, including you, can edit any article right now by clicking
on the edit this page link that appears in every article in the Wikipedia.

All of our articles are covered by the GNU Free Documentation License, to ensure that they can
remain freely available forever. We hope you will enjoy using & contributing to this valuable free

Wikipedia is an international, open content, collaboratively developed encyclopedia found at http://wikipedia.org/. As of June 2003, it covers a vast spectrum of subjects and has over 130,000
articles in English as well as over 75,000 articles in other languages.

The project started in English on January 15, 2001, and projects to build Wikipedia in other languages are very active.


"Wiki," which means quick in Hawaiian, refers to software that enables users to easily collaborate on documents on the Web. Thanks to the simplicity of the wiki writing environment, writers can publish attractive Web pages without knowing Web markup languages such as XML or Web authoring tools such as Microsoft's FrontPage, Adobe's Dreamweaver, or Netscape’s Composer. Wikis offer authors a way to share the writing and editing process with other authors all over the world. Wikis are an ideal authoring platform for students who are assigned collaborative projects in writing classes.

ProjectForum is Wiki software with all the power that you need, but without all the complex setup and hassle. You can literally start using it in minutes!

Wiki software provides a great way for a team to communicate and collaborate, but Wiki packages available today are either very underpowered, or so complex that you need to spend hours getting them setup and running: hacking web servers, databases, script files, and more.
