  • It Walks Like A Duck, It Quacks Like A Duck, But It's A Donkey - The Problem Of Inappropriately DRY Code

    Posted on Mar 7, 2015 at 11:35 AM

    I wholeheartedly agree with the part about people treating certain coding principles as religion: same with languages, IDE's, OS's, etc. - they're all just tools in your box. A craftsman learns to use them all. However, one of the other problems is treating these principles (i.e. DRY) in a vacuum. ... read more »

    I couldn't agree more. I'm anxiously waiting to see how people weigh in on this topic.... read more »

  • ColdFusion 10 - Script vs. Tags And My Coding Methodology

    Posted on Mar 28, 2012 at 8:09 PM

    @Dan - I do the same. I was just trying to see if there was some other possible reason for its existence in a script based component and if not, why leave it as an option at all? Anyways - thx for the feedback/opinions!... read more »

  • ColdFusion 10 - Script vs. Tags And My Coding Methodology

    Posted on Mar 28, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    @Dan - yes, exactly. So my question was: why does it seem to be std. practice to still put this at the top of script base CFCs? Is it basically just ignored metadata for the cfc at that point?... read more »

  • ColdFusion 10 - Script vs. Tags And My Coding Methodology

    Posted on Mar 28, 2012 at 6:39 PM

    @Tony/@Dan - ok, so to be clear then are you saying that placing the: component output="false" at the beginning in the script based CFC and/or a function is completely superfluous? I also thought it unnecessary, yet I see it everywhere - including in Adobe CF help pages - so why even ha... read more »

  • My First Year As A Mac User On The Apple MacBook Pro

    Posted on Jun 7, 2011 at 5:53 PM

    I own both a Mac and PC (multiple machines in fact) and I find all of our Windows notebooks (and PCs) sleep and resume near instantaneously w/o a hitch. If yours was taking a minute then something was wrong or it was sick :-) My new Core i7 notebook blows the doors off of the Macbook Pro in terms ... read more »

  • ColdFusion NumberFormat() Exploration

    Posted on Sep 4, 2010 at 1:54 AM

    Thanks Ben - unfortunately that won't work for my situation. I was also using the "+" mask character. Basically this is for a for a football pool, so I need to list the point spreads as either "-6" or "+2.5" etc. Of course, I can easily enough code some logic to do this, but the NumberFormat func... read more »

  • ColdFusion NumberFormat() Exploration

    Posted on Sep 2, 2010 at 2:17 PM

    Ben - I have same question as Jim and I think maybe you misread it? I want numbers with non-zero decimal places to display the decimal, but those that have no decimal to display w/o the decimal point. For example: 3.3 displays as 3.3 3.0 displays as 3 Fix will not do this. I cannot see how to do... read more »

  • Building A Simple ColdFusion Dependency Injection Framework

    Posted on Aug 18, 2009 at 6:30 PM

    A few months ago I fiddled around with the same concept - amazing how close we are in implementation! I create my factory on appStart and on its initialization it recursively searches my root for all .cfc files, collects meta data, adds those marked 'singleton' to its cache and then works on transi... read more »
