A useful shortcut in PHP 5

Recently I started using a shortcut for my $_GET variables in PHP 5. It seems that instead of doing the following: <?php     $page = $_GET['page'];     $article = $_GET['article']; ?> There is an easier way where all the $_GET variables can be assigned automatically.

Dynamically changing the background color in Adobe Flex Builder

Recently I have been messing around a bit with Flex 3.0. In one particular occasion I was wondering what would be the easiest way to let a user change the background of a Flex based website. The project consisted of just a standard color picker component (just to illustrate the point). Basically what you want to do is capture the selected color when a particular event is being fired, and use this information to dynamically change the background color of the Flex application.
