    Ben, You need to try DropBox it is awesome, store all your files locally and they sync offsite. If you use multiple computers its even better. Keeps full history, rollback etc. There is a free version, but I used a paid version and store everything, its awesome. http://www.dropbox.com... read more »

  • ColdFusion vs. XYZ - It Finally Got Physical

    Posted on Aug 10, 2009 at 6:38 PM

    I would like to call on all ColdFusion developers to grab their knuckle busters and head down to the local Web Developmen shop and throw a few punches around. If you see anyone doing PHP, hit them twice. If you happen to stumble across any people running ColdFusion 5 or lower, slap them also. PS:... read more »

    Nice post, I love tennary, missed it too long. A couple things to try perhaps. 1. Some code examples using script, which I know are identical almost. 2. Can tennary be embedded ie a = b eq 1 ? 2 : b eq 2 ? 3 : 0 might be easier to read in brackets a = (b eq 1) ? 2 : (b eq 2) ? 3 : 0... read more »

  • ColdFusion Application.cfc Wish - OnCommitStart() Event Method

    Posted on Jun 14, 2007 at 4:45 PM

    It makes sense and I understand where you could use it. But I can't see myself ever using it and have never come across a scenario where I thought, I wish I has something here. Thus bottom 10% I'd much rather see better OO features or complete cfscript support... read more »

  • How Do I Offend You, Please Let Me Know

    Posted on Mar 13, 2007 at 4:18 PM

    I find this post offensive. You are taking light of the fact that there are really people who are intellectualy or physically challenged. The use of the word retarded should be added to your list of things to avoid. PS: Other than that I don't remember being offended :)... read more »

  • People! Please Stop Using Single Quotes!

    Posted on Nov 8, 2006 at 5:20 AM

    When you get into a lot of OO cfc stuff, you need single quotes more and more. For example in our app every string goes through a translation macro. For language translations. So every string needs to have a function around it. <h1>#tr('Heading')#</h1> <p>#tr('The quick brown fox... read more »

  • People! Please Stop Using Single Quotes!

    Posted on Nov 8, 2006 at 1:06 AM

    You obviously havn't done much coding. After a while you will find many places where you need to resort to single quotes, and it eventually makes sense to do this evey where. A simple example, ohh lets say putting any function in a HTML element. <a href="#getUrl('home')#">#getTitle('home')#... read more »
