  • Using CFHeader With File Names Containing Spaces (Thanks Elliott Sprehn!)

    Posted on Jul 20, 2007 at 4:48 AM

    Is this actually ColdFusion doing this, or the browser?... read more »

  • When Do You Violate The Law of Demeter In ColdFusion OOP Development?

    Posted on May 23, 2007 at 4:35 AM

    I really hate serial get methods - they're ugly and unclear. This is how I'd write it: Person.readAddress( type:'B' , part:'Street' ) To me that makes it perfectly clear I'm reading the street part of the billing address.... read more »

  • A Better CFParam Tag With A Catch Attribute (Proof Of Concept)

    Posted on Mar 23, 2007 at 7:37 AM

    Another more significant benefit of isDefined + isValid over try/catch: (Can't remember if this is the cfparam/default or cfargument/default), but I'm sure I read somewhere that the default value is evaluated even when its not actually used. So if you had: <cfparam name="bob" value="#readNext('Bo... read more »

  • Code Chat Beta 1.0 Update - Ping Me Link

    Posted on Mar 5, 2007 at 6:25 PM

    So when people press that link, do you have a Wallace & Gromit -esque alarm system that will throw you out of your bed and infront of your PC, ready to help the CF-impaired at any time of the day or night? :D (if not, why not!?)... read more »

  • Making ColdFusion's QueryNew() More Readable

    Posted on Dec 5, 2006 at 4:26 AM

    Why include the commas in your custom tag, when newline is a perfectly good delimiter, and means you can't suffer from the annoying "oh crap, I missed the last comma /again/" thing.... read more »

  • CFSilent vs. CFContent Reset = True

    Posted on Oct 27, 2006 at 7:28 AM

    The downside to using cfcontent is that it can make it more difficult when you just want to pop out a quick bit of debugging info in the logic section. Although that's an upside as well - you can turn it on and not worry about if you've accidentily left some debugging code somewhere... well, so long... read more »

  • Full As A Goog Aggregation - Fun While It Lasted

    Posted on Oct 13, 2006 at 4:12 PM

    There is an option that gives you full control - get Proxomitron (from and create a filter that adds target="_blank" to links on Goog. :)... read more »

  • Full As A Goog Aggregation - Fun While It Lasted

    Posted on Oct 13, 2006 at 4:11 AM

    You do know that you can hold down shift to open a new window? (and in FF, Ctrl for a new tab, Alt for Save Link As) I much prefer to use that and be able to choose myself if I want a new window/tab or not, rather than having the choice made for me.... read more »

  • Hotmail Blocks Emails Send With Inline Images

    Posted on Sep 13, 2006 at 8:42 AM

    I can't remember exactly what a quick Google found a clone of the PHP manual with some info in ( ). Maybe try the following: <cfmail to="#whoever#" from="#from#" replyto="#from#" type="html" charset="iso-8859-1"> <cfmailparam name="X-P... read more »

  • Hotmail Blocks Emails Send With Inline Images

    Posted on Sep 13, 2006 at 8:22 AM

    When I used PHP, Hotmail used to put stuff in spam unless I manually set certain headers... maybe the production server set them? As for the notification e-mail itself, I like it. :) Only minor complaint is that the "To Peter Boughton, " bit is redundant - I'm reading it so I know it's to me. Alth... read more »

  • Hotmail Blocks Emails Send With Inline Images

    Posted on Sep 13, 2006 at 4:49 AM

    Couldn't you just use something like this? <cfif ListLast(Email,'@') EQ ''> src="{absolute}" <cfelse> src="cid:kslogo" </cfif> It'd still means clicking for Hotmail users, but at least they're not being excluded completely...... read more »

  • Neat Trick With ValueList()

    Posted on Sep 7, 2006 at 4:27 AM

    I love CF's list functions. :) Of course, for the other sort of lists, you can also do this: <ul><li>#ValueList(, "</li><li>" )#</li></ul> which has come in handy for me on a couple of occasions.... read more »

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
