  • ColdFusion Application-Specific Mappings Work With CFInclude

    Posted on Dec 5, 2011 at 4:12 PM

    Note: It appears that you can not use the mappings in the pseudo-constructor (e.g. you can not have a cfinclude in the pseudo-constructor that uses the mapping.) You must wait until after it (the pseudo-constructor) has completed execution.... read more »

  • The School Of Practical Philosophy: Love - Week Four

    Posted on Oct 15, 2011 at 8:18 AM

    Ben, Did the class ever present a concise working definition of love? Call me a stickler, but there tends to be a huge muddy factor when people try to teach about love without defining it that can easily be overcome with a concise definition. Tom... read more »

  • Use jQuery's SlideDown() With Fixed-Width Elements To Prevent Jumping

    Posted on Oct 1, 2011 at 7:20 AM

    It seems like you can set the width automatically based on the parent before beginning the slide. hiddenContent.width(hiddenContent.parent().width());... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Enforcing An SSL (HTTPS) Connection Based On Request

    Posted on Aug 1, 2011 at 5:10 PM

    Is there any security concern if you first hit a cfm as http and it creates CFID, CFTOKEN and JSESSIONID values and then you redirect to https? I'm wondering if those values could possible be captured by a packet sniffer and, then the evil-doer could be used to spoof the person while creating an ss... read more »

  • One Man's Search For Love - My cf.Objective() 2011 Lightning Talk

    Posted on May 20, 2011 at 10:44 AM

    @paul Excellent explanation of the different words defining love. I would only add the biblically speaking, since God is a just God, we CAN expect the "value" back, just not directly from the person we gave it to. The bible explains that love is profitable, therefore, we MUST get the v... read more »

  • Atlas Shrugged, Part I - The Movie

    Posted on Apr 26, 2011 at 5:03 PM

    I would encourage anyone interested in going through Atlas Shrugged to check out the notes linked below. They show how the model that Rand presented was a spiritual one even though she probably would have denied it. I continue to mention these notes because they have proven very valuable to me. ... read more »

    Ben, Excellent series. Thank you for it. I would encourage you and anyone who are looking to find tools for determining truth (i.e. DOING philosophy) to check out the two following links (Neither of them are mine, just two that I've learned a lot from). http://faithbyreason.wordpress.com/start-... read more »

  • The School Of Practical Philosophy: Philosophy Works - Week One

    Posted on Mar 9, 2011 at 5:50 PM

    @Lola, I agree, I believe that justice will be equaled out one way or another. My original point was that if someone didn't belive that justice is always equaled out, then they ought not to forgive and take justice out themselves. Tom... read more »

    @Ben, What if the the thing that you are forgiving the person for was that they took $100 from you? I agree that forgiving them may take the weight off your shoulders but you would still be out the cash. Tom... read more »

    Posted on Feb 8, 2011 at 5:37 PM

    Ben, I'm enjoying this series. For me one of the benefits of rest is that we can take the time to consider the things we have learned during our most recent "Action". We can go back through all the good and bad points to validate our beliefs. At that point, with the new information, we ... read more »

  • The School Of Practical Philosophy: Philosophy Works - Week One

    Posted on Jan 20, 2011 at 7:40 PM

    I believe that the definition of forgiveness relies on the the definition of justice. If you believe that justice is equaled out (karma, etc.) then forgiveness would be the act of NOT taking out that justice yourself. The person who "owes" you would still be "in debt" and you s... read more »
