From time to time, people will shoot me an email thanking me for a particular blog post; I am always shocked and flattered that people take the time to do such things. Recently, however, Dave Dugdale took it one step further and totally made my day with a fresh, "Ben Nadel Commercial". What can I say - I love it!
You guys rock!
LOL! Great stuff! 2 thumbs up ;)
Wow Ben, you've got fans! And I do have to admit, your posts are usually a great read!
I enjoyed making the video for you! It is the least I can do for all the help you have given me over the years for a hacker like myself.<CFSET Dave = "spaghetti code">. I can tell all your readers really appreciate the effort you put in to each post.
Also homage goes to Robert Bruce (KnifeGunPen) for the idea of doing this video. The format of my video is based on a video he did years ago that I thought was so cool.
You earned it man! You always have great articles on coding CF or JQuery...
Thumbs up! :))))
Human creativity always improve my mood.
Holy crap! How many points does he get for that?!
Thank Robert for me :)
ps. I added your name to the title - sorry for the oversight.
wait, who's Ben Nadel?
I heard he's a cool guy ;)
AND! Not only will he make you code, but with his Project HUGE... Ben Nadel is gonna PUMP YOU UP!
One of the few blogs I bother with - and the only CF one I bother with.
P.S. does Cara Beverage have any clothes on? (one of the random 'thumbs up' pics)
Ha ha ha, yeah, that photo is taken at an odd angle ;)
You hurt my feelings :(
Great video quality!
@Jose thanks! I have been doing more video on my sites the last couple of years and I have learned a lot from the community over at Vimeo.
The only CF blog I come to without the aid of Google. Thumbs up Ben!
Great stuff! :D But it really speaks for me. Appreciate your effort put into this site!
Thanks everyone :D
It couldn't have been put any better than that Ben.
I read your blog for inspiration all the time, and I seem to find this site a lot searching when I have a problem with what I am working on.
I love the fact that your posts are progressive, they evolve as you discover new things; That is the same way I learn things. You also do it in simple code examples that don't use some high level programming paradigm that is only used by the most advanced coders.
That also gives beginners a level of comfort that is rare, making coding fun, and relaying the simple fact that CFML is really a fun language to code with, and you do not have to think like a robot to do it.
You also add a bit of humor and an undeniable human element to the otherwise terse element of programming.
bennadel.com not only makes you code better, It makes you want to code!
Keep up the great posts, you have a lot of fans and I am one of them!
Thank you so much : ) That is very touching to hear (also, I know I owe you an email). You rock!
Nice work Dave. Super creative, yet simple and powerful. Just like all of your videos.
