As you may have noticed, my most recent article has been published on SitePoint: Practicle Uses of HTTP in ColdFusion. I hope everyone enjoys this article and learns as much from as I did. (Yes, writing is not only a teaching experience, but as much or more of a learning experience, believe it or not.)

I’d like to invite all my readers to share with us ways that they’ve applied HTTP to their ColdFusion applications to extend functionality and enhance their usefulness. I look forward to hearing everyone’s feedback on this.

It follows all the links within the current domain, and checks the first level of links to external domains. In addition, it also checks every IMG tag to ensure that the content is correctly displayed. It could use a little more work – but saves a load of time on manual and visual checks.
