    I'll try that. Do you recall blogging about dynamically changing application timeouts? Thank you. - Gabriel... read more »

    Posted on Feb 27, 2010 at 12:16 PM

    Thanks Ben. 1. Hmm, I'll have to look into how to dynamically override the application timeout (maybe it's already on your blog) cause I'd like to kill the app completely. Not to restart it again by calling onApplicationStart(). Use case is, let's say you have a production server and have a "test"... read more »

    Hi Ben, "....we've only been able to "hack" this functionality." What kind of hacks are you referring to? Stuff like clearing out the application struct? I'm looking for programmatic ways to stop an application so that garbage collection can reclaim its memory. So hacks may be usable. Thank you,... read more »

  • Creating An Image Zoom And Clip Effect With jQuery And ColdFusion

    Posted on Jan 22, 2010 at 12:52 PM

    I'm sorry. I was distracted by your zooming in and out of that image. One the best saucy ones yet. Let me replay the video and _only_ listen to it so I can pay attention to the technical parts. :) - Gabriel... read more »

  • The Bourne Ultimatum Starring Matt Damon And Julia Stiles

    Posted on Aug 6, 2007 at 12:02 PM

    I felt the same way initially about the whole Julia Stiles thing. But when I think about the series, the formula has been kick ass action + a little more insight into who Jason Bourne is. He's not James Bond trying to stop some crime from occurring. He's just a super spy trying to figure out who he... read more »

  • Lenny And Bo, ColdFusion Programmers (Vol. 7)

    Posted on Apr 18, 2007 at 7:41 AM

    @voice of reason It's pretty simple to avoid these type of posts because the naming convention is consistent. I don't read Ray's "lost" reviews. So when I see "Lost Review for #date#", I know to avoid it. I like Lenny and Bo. But if I wanted to avoid it, I could just put "Lenny and Bo, Coldfusio... read more »

    Posted on Mar 30, 2007 at 8:58 AM

    Maybe it's just me but... Considering most of us read left to right, it would have been better if lenny and bo switched places so that "Hey bo, if the future..." is the first thing you see instead of "I'd rather sleep with your wife...". I read the zinger before the setup because of the placement ... read more »

  • How Do I Get A Pointer To A Built In ColdFusion Method?

    Posted on Mar 1, 2007 at 4:47 PM

    My java knowledge is almost non-existent. This may not help at all, but I figure it never hurts to share information. I found a post about running your own Java libraries with coldfusion. In one of the comments, Mark mentions that his code supports access to built in classes and libraries, although... read more »

  • Parsing CSV Values Using A Standard File Format

    Posted on Jan 27, 2007 at 11:01 AM

    Assuming you're doing bulk inserts into a SQL server database, I've been able to speed that process up by inserting 100 rows using one database call in the format below. INSERT INTO memberTable(membername,memberLastName) SELECT 'John','Smith' UNION ALL SELECT 'Julia','Roberts' UNION ALL SELECT 'Bru... read more »

  • Parsing CSV Values Using A Standard File Format

    Posted on Jan 25, 2007 at 9:51 AM

    I've used the following two free tools when I needed to read CSV values. They should be helpful for anyone who wants code that does it for you or for anyone who is writing their own code and wants to see an example. 1.
