July 2010 Update: Please review Charlie Arehart’s comments below about important ColdFusion 9-specific updates to this function.
Ok, so I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I must be crazy for suggesting that a simple built-in unique randomization function could somehow be instrumental in crashing a ColdFusion server, right? Well, before you go calling me a [...]
I just downloaded the latest extJS 2.0.1 zip file and unzipped it into a web folder.
When I went to go look at the examples I got a “403 Forbidden” error from Apache. I figured it must have been some odd security setting on the files. So I compared the security settings on the files that [...]
I just bought a new laptop after working on an Dell m700 for 2 1/2 years. No real reason, I just figured it was time to upgrade. I bought another Dell, an XPS 1330. So far it’s slick. The downside? It ONLY comes with Vista. Just like you, I’ve heard nothing but bad things about [...]

Typically I change the wallpaper color to red for production servers, green for development servers [...]

if you have a firewall, adding host-based packet filtering adds an
additional layer of protection, though in that case you’ll have to
decide for yourself if the [...]
This morning, I made the mistake of installing Windows Media Player 11. The installer did it’s evil, and then lied to me, coaxing me to restart my machine to complete the installation process.
