CFUnited Keynote Address

I have the latest from John Mason's blog. He is attending CFUnited this week. Adobe has disclosed some of the new features that we can expect in the next ColdFusion release code named Centaur. Here is John's blog url:

New Acrobat can produce .PDFs that contain Flash

AN JOSE, Calif. --
Adobe Systems Inc. is launching a new version of its document sharing software Acrobat on Monday, and this time it can package videos.

Acrobat allows users to package documents so they can be read across different hardware and operating systems.

Acrobat 9 comes with Adobe's video-enabling software Flash. Users can include Flash-based videos when they create and share documents with the portable document format, commonly known as PDF.

With a professional version of Acrobat 9, for example, users could package a Power Point presentation not just with images, but also with an audio of the presenter's voice.

e-commerce for Department Publication

We've got a department that publishes a journal. They want to be able to accept on-line credit card payments for subscriptions to this journal. They do not currently accept credit cards, only checks. Does anyone have any experience doing this? I understand that the University has a program that could handle this sort of transaction, but I don't know what it's called.
