  • Learning ColdFusion 9: From SQL To ORM - A Conceptual Shift In Relationships

    Posted on Aug 3, 2009 at 11:36 AM

    Hey Ben. Sorry if I am misunderstanding your model design, but it seems like you have your join directions reversed to begin with. I am assuming that what you mean to express is a "one Contact to many Contact Info" relationship, but what you have is a "One Contact Info to many Contacts", which seems... read more »

  • Win A FREE Ticket To CFUNITED 2009

    Posted on Jul 31, 2009 at 10:35 PM

    I my god, I want them all. But I'd love to see how CF balances out under load, so "Dynamic Load Testing with Webserver Stress Tool" would be my #1.... read more »

    Nice. I have a couple of small CF8 accounts at hostek and so far so good. They are decent for the price! -Brian... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Ending ColdFusion Session When User Closes Browser

    Posted on Jun 10, 2009 at 2:12 PM

    Odd. I've tried both Ben's example, as well as the J2EE variables setting, and in both cases, firefox persists my session after the browser closes! IE 6 and 7 does not (it works properly), but FF (version 3.0.11) will reattach to the previous session in ben's example, after a browser close. I als... read more »

  • Finding The Distance Between Latitude / Longitude Locations In ColdFusion

    Posted on Feb 9, 2009 at 10:23 AM

    Hey Awesome Ben. My only concern is that I think the majority of the lat / long calculations that I would be doing would have to be done directly at the database level instead of pulling all items and then calculating in code. Here is a copy paste for the MySQL implementation of such a calculation... read more »

  • Both MySQL and MS SQL Server Use @@Identity To Report Latest Auto-Incrementing Value

    Posted on Dec 9, 2008 at 6:55 PM

    I also employ the process outlined in http://mysecretbase.com/get_the_last_id.cfm. I create a unique identifier (say a UUID), insert that along with the record, and then perform a select to pull the ID that corresponds to that UUID. That is, I still have an integer auto incrementing primary key ... read more »

  • DreamWeaver CS3 Slows Me Down

    Posted on Sep 10, 2008 at 1:35 PM

    Neither do I. I have very much wanted such a feature for a while. Also, a way of auto-indenting and existing mal-indented document, based on opening and closing tags. All the more reason to move to CFE I guess. -Brian... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Extending Application.cfc And OnRequestStart() With SUPER

    I like. I too was wondering something similar, and failed to recognize that inheritance could apply here. Cool! -Brian... read more »

  • DreamWeaver CS3 Slows Me Down

    Posted on Feb 18, 2008 at 1:35 PM

    Oh, by the way. Anyone doing Mach-ii development probably realized that you can't simply do a <cfdump var=".."> inside a listener or model CFC since the output won't hit the screen. I've written a tiny custom tag (cf_throwdump, stored as a DW snip) that simply does a <cfsavecontent><... read more »

  • DreamWeaver CS3 Slows Me Down

    Posted on Feb 18, 2008 at 1:30 PM

    Hey folks. I use DW almost exclusively now. I would love to switch cold turkey to Eclipse (collapse all CFC functions! Oooo), however the fact that DW has an integrated "preview" panel in split "code + preview" mode is a big deal for me. I don't know why no one else seems to care about that featu... read more »

  • CFDrinks In Manhattan - Tomorrow

    Posted on Feb 4, 2008 at 10:18 PM

    So you're in NY Ben? I am a CF programmer in Windsor Ontario Canada, but our corporate office is in Manhattan, and I head there once a year in August. I am certainly going to be taking you out for drinks if you're available in August! Cheers! -Brian... 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!
