  • DreamWeaver CS3 Slows Me Down

    @ Ben ... so I'm not the only one who, almost franticly, hits ctrl + shift + u in dreamweaver (yuck) and refreshes the browser ever 2 seconds? And if the save/ upload takes more than .5 seconds I'm out of the chair to do something while I wait, like get another soda? haha... read more »

    I agree with EVERY SINGLE dw problem that everyone else said. The ONLY reason I use it is because the other developer does on a Mac, and the feature that checks file modified date has saved us a few hours of work. That being said.... I think DW has cost me much more than a few hours of work over the... read more »

  • How Many HTML Elements Can You Name in 5 Minutes?

    Posted on Nov 21, 2007 at 1:22 AM

    html 4.0, there are so many that I simply never use, thena gain I missed a few that I use all the time! It was only in the last 30 seconds that I even entered IMG!! HA. Funny also how many I entered that I don't use due to xhtml / css usage also. 46 elements remain Named so far: A, ABBR, ACRONYM,... read more »

    Back again to say this example has been a time saver many times. Maybe some day I'll post up my modifications. I was thinking of a new feature and concept: event dates vs repeat dates.... What if we had a two day long event, repeated every month, for example? Just a thought, I don't have the ans... read more »

  • CFParam And Regex-Pattern Is Quite Awesome

    Posted on Nov 19, 2007 at 7:05 PM

    Another thing along these lines that I have been thinking about and doing lately is: If a url param is malformed, then logically that url is wrong, or if there is no record in the db for that id, the page does not exist... <cftry> <cfparam .../> <cfcatch><cfinclude templat... read more »

    Na, I mean the _day.cfm,_week.cfm, _month.cfm, _year.cfm can / should be just one file - they all do the same thing, just slightly different variations. all of these files draw the calendar. One file could do what all of them are doing without repeating the code to do it 4 times. Just an idea to mak... read more »

    I also have some ideas regarding the repeated code that actually builds the calendar table. Based on start and end dates, and the view parameter, we should be able to use just one file to actually draw the calendar, removing the need to have day, month, week, and year view files. I used your code a... read more »

    No Problem. I noticed a few other places where [date] will (maybe depending on version & config) throw MySQL ------------- I also had a question: in several of the scripts you do a switch / case of repeat_type (from the events table) I was wondering if this was just old code never updated or if y... read more »
