Last night, I found a lovely feature in Dreamweaver CS4 which should allow any website to have a CMS element; allowing other people to edit the web pages through their browser. Fantastic for collaborative work such as the Circus of Marvels website.

This morning, I googled for more information. It's called Adobe InContext Editing, so of course, I searched for 'Adobe ICE'.

Hmmmmm.

Adobe ICE is completely different software. It's collation and database software for 'security consultants' collating information 'in the field', often in 'hostile environments'.

Have a look at Adobe Spy.

I haven't been quite this amused since I found a job advert on the CIA website for a spy.

What's scary is that the first part, where they talk about patrols logging that they are underfire, is just a whisper away from being equally effective parody of modern warfare.

*grin*

I assumed that they soldiers would be logging the 'under fire' after the end of the firefight, rather than during.

From what I've seen, you'll be able to run 4 or 5 websites from one ICE account, which makes it more viable for a webdesigner with clients.

For me, it would have been a great solution - I have two partners in the cabaret and neither of them are techies, but would both be perfectly capable of logging in and updating a web page using a WYSIWYG editor. But the effort it would save me (currently they mail me with the text, and I add it) isn't worth $10 / month.

Hey ho - a work colleague has pointed me towards a web host that offers CMS services for £5 / month - once my current contract is up (and if we're still looking at running the cabaret in a years time) I'll probably look into that.

Cool - I'd always rather give my business to friends if I can.

We're probably stuck with our current supplier for another year - after that, I'll be in touch :-)
