WordPress Theme Design

25 February 2009 |

The goal of this title is to explain the basic steps of creating a WordPress theme. This book focuses on the development, creation, and enhancement of WordPress themes, and therefore does not cover general 'how to' information about WordPress and all its many features and capabilities. This title assumes you have some level of understanding and experience with the basics of the WordPress publishing platform. The WordPress publishing platform has excellent online documentation, which can be found at http://codex.wordpress.org. This title does not try to replace or duplicate that documentation, but is intended as a companion to it.

My hope is to save you some time inding relevant information on how to create and modify themes in the extensive WordPress codex, help you understand how WordPress themes work, and show you how to design and build rich, in-depth WordPress themes yourself. Throughout the book, wherever applicable, I'll point you to the relevant WordPress codex documentation along with many other useful online articles and sites...

Illustrator CS for Dummies

20 February 2009 |

Welcome to Illustrator CS For Dummies. You’re reading this book because you want to find out more about Adobe Illustrator. That’s a very smart move because Adobe Illustrator is the industry-standard graphics software. Not only does it outsell all its competitors combined, it’s also the most powerful graphics-creation tool ever created. With Illustrator, all you need to produce graphics like the best you’ve seen in print or on the Web is knowledge and artistic ability. Artistic ability is a challenge that you can handle on your own. The other half — knowledge — is what this book is all about.

Like a tragic hero, the great power of Illustrator is also its terrible curse. With its 30+ palettes, 70+ tools, and scores of menu items, its sheer depth is enough to make the most hardened graphics expert go shaky in the knees. Don’t be fooled by Illustrator’s vastness, however, because you will find a unique, consistent logic underlying it all. After you master a few basics, all the rest falls nicely into place.

In this book, our mission is to get you past Illustrator’s intimidation factor and into its Wow! factor. I take you from being befuddled and mystified by Illustrator’s nigh-infinite options to creating the kinds of graphics that others look at and say, “Wow, how did you do that?”...

Microsoft Windows XP Registry Guide

19 February 2009 |

The registry is the heart and soul of Microsoft Windows XP. In my other registry books, I said the same thing about the registry in every version of Windows since Microsoft Windows 95, and by the time you're finished reading this book, I hope you'll agree. The registry contains the configuration data that makes the operating system work. The registry enables developers to organize configuration data in ways that are impossible with other mechanisms, such as INI files. It's behind just about every feature in Windows XP that you think is cool. More importantly, it enables you to customize Windows XP in ways you can't through the user interface.

Windows XP and every application that runs on Microsoft's latest desktop operating system do absolutely nothing without consulting the registry first. When you double−click a file, Windows XP consults the registry to figure out what to do with it. When you install a device, Windows XP assigns resources to the device based on information in the registry and then stores the device's configuration in the registry. When you run an application such as Microsoft Word 2002, the application looks up your preferences in the registry. If you were to monitor the registry during a normal session, you'd see the registry serves up thousands of values within minutes.

In this book, you will learn how to customize the registry, but you must also learn how to take care of the registry. You must learn how to back up the registry so you can restore it if things go awry. You must also learn the best practices for editing the registry safely...

Super Sexual Orgasm - A Woman’s Guide to Guaranteed Satisfaction


Within every woman’s body lies the potential for ex-traordinary pleasure—pleasure so consuming and compelling that, once experienced, it immediately and permanently re-defines a woman’s understanding of her own sexuality. Every woman deserves to discover this potential and embrace this pleasure, and I have written this book to be your guide.

I am a sex therapist in southern California, and I have been writing, teaching, and working with individuals in private practice for many years. I believe sex is one of the purest forms of human endeavor. Sex is kaleidoscopic in its expressive and experiential possibility. It can be joyously exuberant. It can be a thrilling adventure into the unknown. It can be soothing and centering. Sex cuts to the core of who you are as an individual. It is the ultimate arena of sharing between people. It is the nourishing confluence of so many special elements: touch, physicality, communication, play, genital activity, arousal, orgasm, and intimacy. But none of this is possible if we are not connected to our own sensual potential...
