    For what it's worth, you don't have to go through the trouble of restarting the WWW publishing service. Simply open up a command prompt (start > run > "cmd") and type "iisreset" and hit enter. I've found this to be faster and obviously easier, with the same result.... read more »

    I meant to include this in my previous comment: I've liked the grouping of TweetDeck, but it's always felt a little clunky to me. I'd love to try yours out for a while. Can you send me a copy?... read more »

    Looks cool, Ben. I'm curious, are you running the back-end on a web server? I'm guessing so, because you say it's ColdFusion powered. I've thought of doing something similar, but always come back to the idea that this approach could be a potential scaling issue if the app were to get popular. Do y... read more »

  • June 1st 2008 - National Regular Expression Day! (Post A Comment, Win A Prize)

    Posted on May 30, 2008 at 2:20 PM

    I love how a colleague will be complaining to me that they have to spend all day making a silly change to hundreds or thousands of files by hand, and I can swoop in and save the day with a quick perl command line. Makes me feel like a hero all the time. :) I would love either tshirt, or the O'Reill... read more »

    Hi Ben, Regarding your frustration with onMissingTemplate, I wrote an article on this very topic for dzone: http://coldfusion.dzone.com/news/closing-404-gap-dynamic-page-g... read more »

    Posted on Aug 17, 2007 at 12:10 PM

    Not that it's a ton of overhead, but isn't your Config() function going to be run once for each line you're referencing it (5 times)? What are the pros and cons of running it once and saving the result as a struct, and then referencing that result struct instead of calling the function inline?... read more »

  • The CTRL+SHIFT+S Test For Proper Page Architecture

    If you use a full qualified path ("http://..."), it will work. That's only an option sometimes, I realize, but better than nothing.... read more »

  • The CTRL+SHIFT+S Test For Proper Page Architecture

    A little bit of thread necromancy - sorry about that. I just can't resist though, after you said you're doing all your CSS development with Ctrl+Shift+S... Try this: Ctrl+Shift+E. It'll pop up a sidebar that shows your your CSS. Even better: you can edit it and see the changes on the fly. Don't lik... read more »

  • ColdFusion CFParam Can Use Struct And Array Notation

    Posted on Jul 20, 2007 at 1:39 PM

    What about doing something like the following, given the new CF8 syntax? <cfparam name="event" type="string" default="{Name: 'Using Structures and CFCs'}"> Is that equally bad? I haven't tried it, but I don't think you would run into an issue appending ?event=1 to your query string.... read more »

    Thanks for the refresher. One line in particular troubles me: Find( Chr( 10 ), StripCR( "Nice#Chr( 13 )##Chr( 10 )#Pants" ) ) = 5 Why does it find 5 line feeds in that string?... read more »
