Whispering Wall – Williamstown South Australia

Barossa Dam or whispering wall in Williamstown is not a place you should miss in your visit to South Australia. From the outer look it is just a dam created in Barossa Reservoir. But the magic starts after you send a friend to the other side of the dam and speak.You and your friend will be able to talk as you two are near each other. The sound is very clear hence the name you can whisper and that will be heard by a person who is in the other side of the dam.I was said that when the dam was built the lead engineer used to listen to the workers using this amazing facility to get to know what they are talking about him. Also it seems a later attempt to build a similar dam following the same design and material failed to demonstrate the whisper ability. So this is a unique dam you will not find elsewhere.Whispering Wall VIEW SLIDE SHOWDOWNLOAD ALL Map

Expandable Regions using HTML

You can create nice looking expandable regions using just HTML and some Java scripting. This is specially useful if you are to create a site without any major programming languages. Today I thought to share an expandable region that I created to give you an idea to get it done.When the code works it will look like the following.You should be excited by now, to get it working you need the following code inserted into a body section of a HTML file. Please note I have added the CSS also in to the page body, but if you have a separate CSS file please separate the CSS .<styletype="text/css">a.headingStyle    { text-decoration: none; margin-left: 0.5em;                 } a.headingStyle:hover    { text-decoration: underline;     } a.headingStylespan.charStyle    { font-family: monospace; font-weight: normal;     } .contentStyle    { display: none; margin-left: 1.5em; margin-right: 0.5em; margin-bottom: 0.5em; border-width: thin; border-style: outset; background-color:#D2E3FF…

HTML Menu

Today I thought to share with you, how to create menus using HTML only. These menus will be very useful if you need to create web sites using only HTML.Above menu is created using basic unordered list (UL), list items (LI), links and some CSS.Below is the HTML code for the menu. In the code I have created the full menu using HTML lists and used CSS to format the list to work as a menu.<ulclass="mainMenu"><liclass="mainMenuItem"><ahref="Home.html"class="mainMenuLink">Home</a><ulclass="subMenu"><liclass="subMenuItem"><ahref="Page1.html"class="subMenuItemLink">e</a></li><liclass="subMenuItem"><ahref="Page2.html"class="subMenuItemLink">ee</a></li></ul></li><liclass="mainMenuItem"><ahref="Module1.html"class="mainMenuLink">Module 1</a><ulclass=…

Microsoft Flight

In early 2009 I got shocked when I heard that Microsoft Aces game studio was closed down by Microsoft which was responsible for developing well known PC simulation software's and games such as Flight Simulator, Combat Flight Simulator and Train Simulator.But recently after getting to know that Microsoft is now developing the Flight Simulator internal at Microsoft I am more than happy. After seeing the new visuals of the renamed product Microsoft Flight, I am extremely exited and waiting until they release the next version.See for your selves by visiting Microsoft Flight site which is the next version of Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
