  • Subversion - Cleanup Failed To Process The Following Paths

    Posted on Sep 2, 2008 at 10:48 AM

    @Jono thanks for the link. I did check that book out a few months back and had a little bit of a tough time with it. I thought to myself, this would be a lot easier if I had a friend or coworker who fully understood it to point me in the right direction. One of those things I think if you see someon... read more »

  • Subversion - Cleanup Failed To Process The Following Paths

    I need some sort of Subversion/GIT for dummies book. My designer mind has a hard time seeing the big picture or birds eye view of how a versioning system works. I'm behind the times and am tired of FTP'ing to a dev server and copying changes to a prod server. :-(... read more »

  • ColdFusion CFFTP Timeout Value Cannot Be Dynamic

    Posted on Aug 30, 2008 at 12:46 AM

    Interesting finding! I wonder if it's just the calculation it has to do for the timeout value or if it's any variable at all.... read more »

  • OOPhoto - Thoughts On Integrating The New Domain Model

    Posted on Jul 30, 2008 at 1:30 AM

    @marc Wow, dude that was awesome. As my first coldfusion project, I built a simple cms for my personal site/blog, nothing fancy. It was fine when it was just for myself but now my wife has her site running the same codebase, oh and now we have a photography business that uses the same code base.... read more »

  • OOPhoto - Thoughts On Integrating The New Domain Model

    Posted on Jul 29, 2008 at 9:24 PM

    Ok noob question here. Can you put in laymens terms what the big advantage of OO would be in this particular coldfusion app? Because I'm a noob I'll accept the fact that I may be short-sighted on this issue; But it seems like I could build this ten times faster by posting a form to an action page ... read more »

  • OOPhoto - A Painful Transition To Object-Based Controllers

    Posted on Jul 25, 2008 at 2:15 PM

    Ben if you're not working on a book I would seriously consider it if I were you. I'd shell out $50 to have all of your blog entries structured (in chapter/topic), cleaned up and bound. Hell I might even just get my printer out. I KID! Please write a book. K thanks.... read more »

  • OOPhoto - A Painful Transition To Object-Based Controllers

    Posted on Jul 25, 2008 at 9:23 AM

    No actually that's pretty much 100% my problem. You're doing a fantastic job. I'm somewhat new to Coldfusion and really programming in general. Most of the time the problem for me is that I don't understand a lot of the terminology/lingo from the start. Meaning the fundamental things you'd learn may... read more »

  • OOPhoto - A Painful Transition To Object-Based Controllers

    Posted on Jul 25, 2008 at 3:51 AM

    Totally honest? I was only able to absorb a very small percentage of this beautifully thought out hand crafted super insightful blog entry. What I can say is that it caused me to think outside of the daily sludge of doing things the same way over and over without ever questioning my methods or rea... read more »

    I'm loading the presentation right now, I'm stoked to check it out. I'm hoping some of what you got will rub off on to me. Damn dude, you're a beast. That iPhone app got you swoled!... read more »

  • I'm Not Dead Yet - But Blogging Might Be Killing Me?

    Posted on Apr 13, 2008 at 12:55 AM

    I totally envy you. Resting would be nice, too. The whole topic of this blog entry makes me call into question my own computer usage, I go through spurts where I'm on the computer all the time (for work and play) and then other times I don't even think about it. Ah well, spring is near so that'll ... read more »

  • Very Strange Spam Site / Link Farm?

    Posted on Aug 4, 2007 at 3:53 AM

    I read an interesting article recently from webconfs.com that talked about "Bad Neighborhoods". Might not add much to the conversation here but thought it'd be worth noting. Thanks! http://www.webconfs.com/bad-neighborhood-article-13.php... read more »
