  • Programmatically Completing A List Of Movie Showtimes In ColdFusion

    Posted on Apr 29, 2011 at 1:08 PM

    I am looking at the google showtime results and there does seem to be some logic to it (granted I only went through a couple days examples but they all seem to meet this criteria). It seems the AM/PM shows up on the *last* item of the list. So if you had the following: 10:00 11:15am 1:00 4:00 9:00p... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 9: Implicit Struct And Array Usage

    Posted on Jul 13, 2009 at 10:16 AM

    @Justice - at our CFUG tour event, I asked Adam about the uppercasing of struct keys when using the implicit structure creation (and how that makes it useless for flex or javascript) and it sounded like a) he knows about the issue and b) they are working on it. I am hoping that makes it into a later... read more »

  • ColdFusion 8's OnMissingTemplate() - So Close To Being Good

    Posted on Jul 1, 2009 at 10:51 AM

    I haven't tried this for this specific problem but couldn't you use Apache's mod_rewrite to add index.cfm to any URL not containing a cfm?... read more »

  • What Is The Best Time Of Day To Workout?

    Posted on Apr 13, 2009 at 4:14 PM

    I usually did an early afternoon (say 2-3) workout when I work from home. I liked it mainly because it broke up my day and the gym was generally empty (except for 90 yr old Russian guys who seem to like to wander the locker room naked...which is the one drawback ;). Still, my wife prefers the mornin... read more »

  • Is It Time For "Practical" Object Oriented Programming (OOP)?

    Posted on Mar 30, 2009 at 10:46 AM

    I echo a lot of what prior commenters said. I am by no means an OO expert but I think I understand it enough to use it well in my applications. Nonetheless, I was where you are a while back and it meant I took forever getting things done. In the end, I think OO is a continual exploration and even th... read more »

  • Not Commenting And The Tipping Point Of Poor Programming

    Posted on Jun 5, 2008 at 2:20 PM

    I totally agree with Hal's recommendation here. I often do this...not all the time, but honestly the write comments first method gets exponentially more helpful the more complex or obtuse the code gets. Obviously this benefits someone who comes back and reads my code but it also serves as placeholde... read more »

  • Not Commenting And The Tipping Point Of Poor Programming

    Posted on Jun 5, 2008 at 11:29 AM

    Good post. I think Brian has a point as Terrence pointed out. Nonetheless, I think your discussion of tipping points is a good one. I have had more than one person, for instance, tell me that the policy at their office was to put absolutely everything into stored procedures because a boss had read t... read more »
