    Ok guys, at this moment in time, CFQuickDocs is fully functional again. I am not going to hold my breath on it though...we're still trying to figure out what's causing these issues.... read more »

    Well, it was up yesterday when I posted that comment. There are some odd things going on with this new host. They fixed the DB again, but now the site is freezing up again like it was earlier this week. Sigh...... read more »

    Ok guys, the CF9 docs are working now too. :) When the hosting company copied my database to their new servers, for some reason the CF9 docs table was not copied. All is well now.... read more »

    @Paul, My hosting company was recently bought by Vivio. CFQuickDocs was working last week, but not now. I'm not sure why. I'll look into it.... read more »

  • Making SOAP Web Service Requests With ColdFusion And CFHTTP

    Posted on Jul 6, 2012 at 1:54 PM

    From your post: "Assuming that the response was formed well (valid XML) and that the target server was available, your SOAP request should always come back with a 200 response code, regardless of its execution success; any errors within the API request will be defined in the result nodes of the... read more »

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

    Posted on Aug 3, 2009 at 5:03 PM

    @Brain, I can see your point. I use CFCs for my DB interactions as well, but reviewing Ben's example code again, it still appears that the amount of code was increased. One problem with my "118 lines of CFC code" statement is that it included the CFC for the company, which was not in the original... read more »

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

    Posted on Aug 3, 2009 at 3:09 PM

    One thing that strikes is how you went from a 13 line SQL statement (adding 2 lines for the cfquery tags) to 118 lines of CFC code. Granted, some of your readers have pointed out that you may have taken the wrong direction with your ORM implementation, so maybe it could have been done in a few less... read more »

  • ColdFusion REFind() Cannot Find The Empty String

    Posted on Dec 16, 2008 at 2:33 PM

    Ben, You're too good looking to be talking about such nerdy topics. You should be wearing glasses with tape on them, a button down shirt with a pocket protector, etc. :) But seriously, this is just more fuel for the "CF should have 0-based indexing" fire. It has always bothered me...... read more »

    Posted on Aug 15, 2008 at 3:24 PM

    Very clever! I'm going to use this trick next time my wife is mad because I wasn't paying attention: "I wasn't ignoring you, honey! I was just cfincluding your conversation, which allows me to do what I'm working on now while still taking in your most excellent and awe inspiring wisdom."... read more »

    I really like your end of day chat idea. I'd just have three bits of feedback: 1. Be patient. Like you said, we aren't perfect, so give eachother time to improve. Depending on the behavior in question, it can take anywhere from a few days to years to change. 2. Don't let this nightly chat turn ... read more »

  • Negative CSS Margins Are Not Cool

    Posted on Mar 5, 2008 at 9:06 PM

    Some good comments. The only time I've used negative margins are when I couldn't get one of the major browsers to behave the same way as the others. But I am very far from a CSS expert, so I'm sure there are better ways to solve the problem...... read more »

  • DNA Based Dating Service

    Posted on Dec 17, 2007 at 3:00 PM

    @Todd, The problem with Gattaca was the totalitarian attitudes. It's one thing to pick your child based on desired DNA, but it's another thing to build your entire society around DNA rules, creating outcasts in the process. I can see a small version of that happening, similar to how children natu... read more »

  • FAQu Volume II, Issue II Is Totally Flextasic

    Posted on Dec 3, 2007 at 2:15 PM

    Judith, No, I'm sure the content quality was great, as usual. Now that FAQu is the only CF magazine left, I hope you guys take a much stronger ColdFusion focus in future issues. But it's your magazine, you run it how you like. :)... read more »

  • FAQu Volume II, Issue II Is Totally Flextasic

    Posted on Nov 21, 2007 at 1:43 PM

    For the specific applications you mentioned, I don't really have a problem with it, Brian. But there are some Flex fanatics that are moving beyond that. For example, there are a few bloggers that have converted their entire blog to Flex. This is a bit much, in my opinion, but to each his own. :)... read more »
