  1. New Atlanta Does The Unthinkable!!

    Wow! Vince I have to give you and the entire New Atlanta Team a big high five, raise my glass, slap on the butt, or whatever your favorite congratulatory “thing” may be. With this blog post you did something which Adobe couldn’t or didn’t know how to. You Open Sourced CF. Ok so you didn’t […]

  2. Friendly URLs

    So I hope everyone in the US has survived the Daylight Savings Time crisis of 2007! I don’t know about you but i didn’t even feel it :) I was browsing the forums recently, as i typically do when I’m looking for a topic to blog on, and I came across a post by forumposters […]

  3. Another year, another CFUnited

    Did you make it to CFUnited this year? Yea me neither, I was supposed to go but after my little sabbatical to Shreveport LA plans kind of got lost. BUT lucky for us we can still experience it even if we didn’t get to sit in the chairs and pal around the conference area. Be […]

  4. Now you can be as cool as me – GO GET CF 8 BETA!

    Yes folks now you get to be as cool as I’ve been! For the past few weeks / months I’ve been involved in the ColdFusion 8 aka Scorpio beta. Today you too can play with the next version of ColdFusion. Adobe today released the first Release Candidate or Public Beta for ColdFusion 8!! I’ll give […]

  5. Are your clocks cleaned?

    Here in the states most of us ritualistically change our clocks twice a year in hopes to gain more daylight. This practice has been known as Daylight Savings Time and it’s my understanding that it’s also practiced in other parts of the world. Well the US Government recently changed the dates for when Daylight Savings […]

  6. What have you done for me lately?

    So… what have you done for me lately? I make your life easier. I allow you to create great web applications, impress your co-workers, wow your clients, and I’m sure you’re a hero to your boss at least 3 or 4 times a week because of me. So what have you done for me lately? […]

  7. Snort, Cough, Cough, Hack….

    Not a very pleasant title for a blog post for sure, but that my loyal readers has been mine life for the past week and a half. I’ve been fighting the flu / an upper respiratory infection which has left my online time to very very minimal spurts. So no fancy coding lecture today. Instead […]

  8. CFCs for the common developer Part 2

    So last time we learned the basics of creating a CFC and the overall structure of a very basic CFC. Today we’re going to talk about the different ways in which we can use this CFC in our code. So how do we access this function in our CFC? Can we just include it into […]

  9. “You want to do what?”

    Ok I know this isn’t part 2 of my CFC’s for the common developer but I wanted to share with you something cool I did today. I had a query of locations which needed an extra row inserted into it. Now this sounds like an easy thing to do but there’s a catch, isn’t there […]

  10. CFCs for the common developer

    Recently in the SitePoint ColdFusion forums there was a nice little discussion about CFC’s and how everyone who explains them or teaches them throws in a lot of buzzwords which does more to confuse people then to help them along. Now I know this happens because I’m guilty of it as well as a lot […]

  11. Holy Hamburgers!

    The only thing “Stagnant” about ColdFusion is this blog, or should I say, WAS this blog! It’s been 2 long years since I last posted on InFused and I’m happy to report today changes all that. I remember begging SitePoint to let me take this blog over from David Medlock back in May of 2004, […]

  12. Not 100% ColdFusion but worth a mention

    Yes I know it’s been quiet around here. I’m trying to move away from a “finding news” to a “making news” blog. So posts will start to be more unique in the coming days / weeks. I just got copies of the DEVNET from Macromedia as well as Contribute 3 so expect to see my […]

  13. CFHTTP and DNS Caching

    Tom Jordahl is a Macromedia Server Development Engineer and he’s just blogged about CFHTTP caching DNS Queries. Apparently people were blaming the CFHTTP tag for caching the DNS queries forever, or at least until you restarted the CFMX services. Tom did some digging and found the culprit is actually the JAVA InetAddress class (which MM […]

  14. Coming soon..

    Man has it been crazy around my office. We are about to start a project which has to be completed in 30 days. This is design, development, Q&A, Training, and Live release. While this isn’t a problem for us, it does mean some wicked hours and work schedules for the next month. The project is […]

  15. You looking at me?

    Ok this goes out to all you ColdFusion people who have a lick of talent, which based on this readership is everyone! Did you know SitePoint pays for ColdFusion articles? That’s right you can write an article on a ColdFusion topic and you’ll get cold hard cash, ok it won’t be cold or hard because […]

  16. Another CF Blogger

    Damon Cooper is now blogging. He’s the for Director of Engineering for Coldfusion at Macromedia. He just started out so his posts are sporadic and few but if he’s like anything like Tim we should expect to see great things.

  17. Encrypt your entire site

    One of the great things about ColdFusion is the ability to encrypt your code so you can have some level of secruity when you sell it or give it out. CFEncode.exe is included with all CF servers so there is no extra “cost”, other than time. Thanks to a link on Andy’s blog I’ve now […]

  18. DB Slowdown after migrating from CF5 to CFMX?

    If you’ve noticed a significant drop in your Database calls AND you migrated from CF5 to CFMX then you might want to read this TechNote released today. Basically it has to do with a flag being set improperly. A simple check and uncheck fixes the issue for now.

  19. New Article! Installing CFMX

    Woot! Got a new article published which walks you step by step on setting up CFMX 6.1 (pre updater) with Apache 2.x on your Windows computer / server. Check it out.

  20. CFML History?

    Ever wanted to know the history of Coldfusion? Raymond Camden pointed me (who was pointed by Tim Buntell) to this link. Looks interesting enough. i’ll have to download it later and geek out in front of the fireplace :) FYI for those of you following Hurricane IVAN here in the US. It blew through Atlanta […]
