    Man, that really is interesting. Putting yourself on display to better understand how many woman are observed in the world really might lead to some interesting insights. One nit-pickey bit: cyclists don't shave their legs to cut down on drag. It's done half out of safety and half out of traditio... read more »

  • Using Multi-Part Class Paths With CFScript-Based Argument Types

    Posted on Dec 30, 2009 at 8:09 AM

    Ugh, definitely a bug. I imagine it's due to the CF engineering team being used to Java, where you'd typically use an import statement instead of the full, canonical class name. CF should definitely support either!... read more »

  • Happy Medium Between Generic Getters / Setters And Property Methods

    Posted on Apr 9, 2008 at 9:53 AM

    That's pretty witty, Ben! One shift that'd suit my purposes is to use <cfproperty name="propName" getter="true" setter="true" /> instead of the kinky:spoof functions...that'd be really concise, and give the nice "properties" bits in CFC doc. My issue isn't so much with documentation (looki... read more »

  • SQL EXISTS Exploration (Thanks Christoph Schmitz!)

    Posted on Sep 5, 2007 at 4:57 PM

    Man, I like EXISTS, and I'm happy to see someone writing about it from a CF perspective. One thing I do with it is write things: EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM...) The "SELECT 1" just adds a nice semantical clue as to what the exists bit is doing...... read more »

  • Am I A Senior Programmer?

    Posted on Apr 13, 2007 at 9:40 AM

    Hey man, I'll leave whether or not you feel "senior" applies to you up to you, but I'd say that if you're not, you're definiely on your way: anyone who bothers to think about what they do as well as document it for others is going to have a good career in our field. -Joe... read more »

  • SELECT TOP And ColdFusion Query Of Queries

    Posted on Nov 28, 2006 at 9:28 PM

    Heheh...no worries! I can't tell you how long I used replaceNoCase(someList, ",", "','", "all") before I realized ListQualify() existed. My rule of thumb for CF: if there's a common task that you'd like to implement code to accomplish, it's probably in the library. -Joe... read more »

  • SELECT TOP And ColdFusion Query Of Queries

    Posted on Nov 28, 2006 at 6:01 PM

    Hey Ben, Is there a reason why you'd do this and not use MAXROWS on the QoQ, such as: # <cfquery name="qSubMovie" dbtype="query" maxrows="10"> # SELECT # name # FROM # qMovie # ORDER BY # name ASC # </cfquery> -Joe... read more »
