Users who need the latest shockwave plugin should be directed to

<URL: http://sdc.shockwave.com/shockwave/download/alternates/ >

The one we need is at the top of the Mac OS X section, just under 
a third of the way down (Nota Bene: I am glad that "design of the
Macromedia website" is not on my C.V.).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the click on the Camino homepage
2. Try to locate the installer for the file "Shockwave Flash NP-PPC"
3.

Actual Results:  
Couldn't complete the operation.

I found what I wanted by Googling for a site that had obviously
had the same problem to solve (posting a link for their users to
get this download).

Expected Results:  
1. Posted the link above, or
2. Recommend the use of Google as above, and,
3. Post a link to any Dilbert cartoon whose punchline contains
such elements as "interesting theory about why my hair is brown"

It is questionable whether there should be both a homepage and
an index.html for Camino
