Question:I would like to be able to let users upload their pictures through the editor "FCKConfig.ImageUpload=true" but i want each user that logs in to be able to upload to their assigned areas for instance, if user1 logs in then when he uploads a picture he would upload it to the user1 in the web server and then when he browses for all pictures using fckeditor he would only be able to see the pictures under the user1 folder.

Java Applet to Get MAC Address :

import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.applet.Applet;

public class MacAddressApplet extends Applet

public static String format = "%02X";

* getMacAddress - return the first mac address found
* separator - byte seperator default ":"
* format - byte formatter default "%02X"
* @param ni - the network interface
* @return String - the mac address as a string
* @throws SocketException - pass it on
public static String macToString( NetworkInterface ni ) throws SocketException
return macToString( ni,…
