  3. Cracking into ColdFusion

    The Internet Junkie recently posted a very cool blog post which talks about opening up ColdFusion and altering the behavior of most ColdFusion tags. In his example he creates his own version of CFLOCATION in order to better debug an application a reader was having problems with. This is very cool because it opens up a new level of debugging (albeit dangerous) which I haven't seen from any other coding language. Read more here.
