Oh man! Isn't it awesome how ColdFusion makes web development so easy!
I mean CFQuery, CFDump, CFSaveContent.... it's just too easy!
I think a lot of things in your life are "too easy."
What's that supposed to mean?
Nothing.... dude, nothing.... nothing. I'm sure your wife is a wonderful person.
ohhh, poor lenny.... vol. 5 is still killin' me.
No offence Ben, I value your site greatly - but it's stuff like this which really hacks me off when reading blog aggregators like fullasagoog.
These types of articles, Ray Camen's "Lost" reviews, etc etc - pointless.
@Voice of Reason,
That's totally respectable and understandable. I have been playing around with the idea of flagging certain blog entires for NOT being included in RSS feeds to this very effect. I am still playing around with how it would work (not the technicalities... the logistics).
What is "n1"?
Sorry mate - Nice One ;)
Thanks Ben, it would be appreciated. Text-speak is an even bigger complaint for me, I had no idea what "n1" meant either...
Thanks Ben. Not that I don't appreciate the effort but I hope you figure out the logistics.
@ The self proclaimed voice of reason - First of all, if you are going to critizise be decent enough to come out with your name.
Second, as stated numerous times before, most blogs (including this one and Rays) are personal blogs and it is not up to anyone to dictate what goes into them. If agregators find the blogs interesting/good enough to include them thats great, but the blogger is not responsible or obliged in any way to adjust his/hers content because of this.
Third, for a lot of people (myself included), these kinds of posts are welcome. It is not all about technical content, but also the sense of comuntity and getting to know each other a little bit.
If this does not fit you, avoid the agregators, use some kind of RSS reader client, and subscribe only to the blogs that is up to your standards of "seriousness".
@Ben - Keep rocking man!
@voice of reason
It's pretty simple to avoid these type of posts because the naming convention is consistent.
I don't read Ray's "lost" reviews. So when I see "Lost Review for #date#", I know to avoid it.
I like Lenny and Bo. But if I wanted to avoid it, I could just put "Lenny and Bo, Coldfusion Programmers" on my mental block list and not click the link.
Ben, a friend and I used to speak in CF_tags sometimes, turning verbs into CF_verb when it might be funny to do so.
I think cfdump might make a great one of those...
I think the @voice of reason must be a asp.net developer
Keep up the good work Ben
Not that easy pal, LOL.
