    Nice shoes! I did not know that they came with strobes. :) (First Pic). Cool effect. It's great to see some of these features in CF (datasource, Implicit Array/Struct and oh yes the method calling from arrays.. VERY nice!)

    Hey Ben, Honestly, while writing aspects of my recent post above I did see the flag waving in the distance :). But I pushed it out there anyways to get your opinion. :) I'm use to this approach with some sort of added security in mind.

    Ok, so I read your post again and I think I was a little off ;-). My instinct says to keep your data access methods within a service which can talk to the DAO factory. I think that a good path. If you want your application to be able to build your business objects you might need your application ... read more »

    Ben, First let me say your examples expressed for OOPhoto are great. Good job and keep up the great work. Now in regards to the wall you are hitting it sounds like you are on the right path.
