  • My First ColdFusion 8 CFFTP Experience - Rocky But Triumphant

    Posted on Jul 1, 2009 at 9:06 PM

    Hi All, I should be a bit more specific. I am looking for a file transfer solution through CF to upload a single file at a time (20-100megs). Looks like i'll use CFFTP to do after reading some posts. The article i posted was mentioning issues with IIS and Windows server 2003 which i thought might... read more »

    Hi Ben, Here's a great post on CF8 and a file size issue here: http://coldfused.blogspot.com/2007/08/coldfusion-8-changes-with-file-upload.html I wasn't sure how big a file CF8 would manage to transfer without timing out as i've had troubles with reading large 400meg xml files.

  • Data-Driven CSS Style Sheets Using ColdFusion

    Posted on May 5, 2009 at 7:13 PM

    I like it Ben. I have a new Nursery website project we have just started which will use Morning, Noon and Night shots in different style sheets throughout the day. On a medium to large size style sheet you would be thinking maybe up to 30kb in size. Will be good to test the load times each time th... read more »

    Great function! I read an inferior blog post telling me to just Replace the T and Z with spaces which obviously won't output the correct time. Using this for a Twitter RSS Feed display. The XML date from the feed is in T & Z format.... read more »

    Posted on Feb 7, 2008 at 5:15 PM

    Hi Ben, I have been working on trying looping over data out of an XML file and choosing a particular node through XmlSearch. XML File Structure: <propertyList date="2008-01-25-10:02:00" > <residential modTime="2008-01-25-10:02:01" status="current"> <uniqueID>HI5160</uniqueI... read more »
