    @Ben, I definitely agree that being fully RESTful can make someone lose context of what it is they are changing. I have run into scenarios where I had the same exact issues/concerns, and what I have done there is actually create "actions" endpoints. Examples: /memberships/1/actions/renew... read more »

    Nice one Ben! Will have to try that. Just a heads up for anyone reading this on using @@IDENTITY: it's not scope safe. Better to use SCOPE_IDENTITY(), which always returns the newly created ID in the scope of the request you are executing. Explanation: http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2007/03/25/sql-s... read more »

  • Using ImagePunch() And ImageIntersect() With ColdFusion

    Authorize.net points to this URL for pricing analysis: http://www.authorize.net/solutions/merchantsolutions/pricing/ However, I am curious to hear from anyone who has opened an account with them if these costs are accurate.
