    Hopefully this tip will help someone down the road too, or maybe someone can enlighten me as to the "right" way to code for the physical file path of an application. I was setting the following code in the OnApplicationStart() method to set the application's physical file path ( http://mydomain.com... read more »

    yeah some Adobe connect preso's would be worth paying something for, for sure. It seems like there were a ton of blog posts last year with presentations etc, but it seems to be "mums the word" out there this year...maybe I'm not plugged into the right frequency this time around :-)... read more »

  • ColdFusion 8.0.1 Bug Coldfusion.Image.ImageWriter $ ImageWritingException

    Posted on Jun 16, 2009 at 9:36 AM

    I commented earlier about converting .jpg's to .gif as a workaround. I've since learned that my .jpg problems stemmed from trying to constrain both the height and width of the .jpg using CFIMAGE action="resize".

    Hey Ben, I've been working with the jpg issues for a while. I've noticed that some jpg's don't play nice even after the hotfixes are applied. It may be a hack, but I got fed up and had to do something....I'm converting the jpg's to gif's (usng CFIMAGE action="convert") after they're uploaded and th... read more »
