  2. Favorite CF Functions/Tags/Etc.

    …posted by davidjmedlock: I thought it would be interesting to hear from other developers what their favorite or most used ColdFusion custom tags, UDF’s, or CFC’s are.

  3. Open Source ColdFusion Projects

    …posted by davidjmedlock: This is pretty cool. SourceForge is a huge (the largest, I’m sure) open source software web site.

  7. Code Reuse in CF – Part One

    …posted by davidjmedlock: Well, in about 7 hours I’m going to be on a plane to Salt Lake City, Utah for my first snowboarding trip. I’ve never been snowboarding or skiiing, so this should be interesting. I just hope I don’t break any important members. (I can live with a broken leg. A broken arm […]

    …posted by davidjmedlock: I was reading up on some ColdFusion optimization techniques recently for work and I came across something that said you could increase the efficiency of caching your queries by eliminating the CreateTimeSpan() function used in the CachedWithin attribute of your cfquery tags. Now, here’s my disclaimer: This is not really my idea. […]

  10. Watch Your RSS!

    …posted by davidjmedlock: This blog isn’t quite so much about ColdFusion, but eventually, we’ll tie up all the loose ends, I promise. It will all make sense by mid-April.
