Ghosts of ColdFusion Past
Fri Oct 02 4:40 PM
@john_mason_ Thanks. Indeed, the server was under high load.
Fri Oct 02 4:21 PM
Ditto that! RT @awest: Working at home really blows. Not.
Fri Oct 02 3:44 PM
@charliegriefer Enjoy! Twitter is gonna have a melt down. #adobeMAX
Fri Oct 02 3:12 PM
Have you ever launched the ColdFusion Server Monitor and seen the buttons for Monitoring, Profiling, and Memory just not show up at the top?

Fri Oct 02 1:14 PM
@javierjulio Thanx Javi. Just saw the prop under inherited properties. I missed that one. And thanks for the caveats (@cfsilence too)
Fri Oct 02 1:13 PM
@cfsilence @bpanulla Thx for quick replies. I didn't see that in the Webservice API bc it was hidden under inherited properties. Thx!
Fri Oct 02 1:06 PM
Hrm. How does one specify a timeout for mx:Webservice (or even mx:HTTPService) in Flex? Never thought about it before.
Fri Oct 02 12:42 PM
@cfjedimaster @aliaspooryorik Ah, I was looking at "" not ""
Fri Oct 02 12:41 PM
@cfjedimaster Actually, no I don't. The only thing yellow is a yellow button that says Add Tag. The word recipe does not appear at all.

How do I create new entries in the Adobe ColdFusion Cookbook? I'm logged in but don't see any kind of link to participate.

@dloxton @coldfusion Thank you. Using the iFrame view I was able to register for the online keynotes. #AdobeMAX #ColdFusion

@coldfusion Clicking the Register Now button on the MAX Online screen changes view to blank panel with no information #AdobeMAX #ColdFusion

An example I found that proves a good photo doesn't just happen by simply putting a model on a set with some lights
Thu Oct 01 10:16 PM
@devnulled I think the Aspens in Fall are what I miss most about Colorado. That and friendly people.
Thu Oct 01 10:15 PM
Yeah, I have a mannequin named Madge. So what?

Tue Sep 29 9:24 PM
On the shoulders of giants like @mojokiss - RT @mojokiss: @stevenerat is HELL of a photog nipping at heels of hi-end fashion & portraiture.
Tue Sep 29 9:08 PM
Just learned about SOPHA (Studio of Photographic Arts) from alt #photog @mojokiss , located in Manchester, NH. Founded by @Dastardly_Dave
Tue Sep 29 6:55 PM
@BlakeBroad Thank you. That's just the type of hosting support review I was looking for
Tue Sep 29 5:47 PM
Thinking bout software support. Where do u get support? Vendor, 3rd prty? What do you like about it? What would you add 2 improve?

touching computer keypad daintily as to avoid an electric surge come shooting up my arm while this wicked thunder / lightening storm pass by
Mon Sep 28 8:45 PM
@jhawkes is the font registered in the ColdFusion Administrator's Font page? #hating
Mon Sep 28 8:14 PM
@mobarger I remember installing 10g XE for Win several years ago and it was amazingly easy. I feel 11g is going backwards in complexity.
Mon Sep 28 8:07 PM
3 hours later, the installation and configuration of Oracle 11g database on WinXP is still chugging along... yawn.
Mon Sep 28 5:20 PM
When will that @orbisflash arm attachment be ready? Not using my ring flash until I can devote both hands to the camera. #photog
Mon Sep 28 5:16 PM
Installation of Oracle on Mac OS X was too much of a headache, so falling back to putting 11g on WinXP instead. Sigh.
Mon Sep 28 5:08 PM
@mojokiss Thank you! Great to learn from you. Hopefully some of your coolness rubbed off. (Its probably not cool to cool anymore... sad)
Mon Sep 28 5:01 PM
Re-read the CFGURU thread on ColdFusion support (and its reported suckage). I'm not participating in that thread, but buy me a beer sumtime
Mon Sep 28 11:41 AM
@tangon I have a cousin, Gary, who has a full fledged vineyard and winery in N.E. PA, including tasting room.
Sat Sep 26 7:57 PM
Excellent creative instruction fr/ @mojokiss RT @mojokiss: did lighting and artistic direction on a shoot w/ @stevenerat & @liilii. AMAZING
Sat Sep 26 2:29 AM
Bastards! I spent over 2 hours trying figure out why TweetDeck and Firefox won't start without sudo. A reboot fixed it.
Sat Sep 26 12:33 AM
Recovered my FIrefox bookmarks w/ Import > Restore > Choose File > {one of the json backup files} WHEW!!!!
Sat Sep 26 12:15 AM
Now I know which situations Linux beats Mac: file system transparency
Sat Sep 26 12:11 AM
@iotashan Thx. Found this article and at least I recovered the 5 backups FF automatically makes:
Fri Sep 25 11:55 PM
@commadelimited I think if you set only height or only width as fixed size, Flex will scale down proportionally on other side.
Fri Sep 25 11:53 PM
Trying to troubleshoot why Mac update issue, I backed up, then installed new Firefox. I've lost all bookmarks/pwds after revert

I'm one monkey short today. That pretty much says it all.

Started with Jefferson Airplane tonight, crossed over to Johnny Cash, and wound up at Judas Priest.
Mon Sep 21 11:55 PM
@phone_is_tapped As soon as my son grows up a few more months I'll be ramping up more shooting & needing good MUA. MM:
Mon Sep 21 11:42 PM
@john_mason_ Forget about it. At GMC its frozen solid. Only a serious security or server crashing issue would hope to see daylight now
Mon Sep 21 11:35 PM
@john_mason_ I'm not in the beta, but its interesting to observe that ColdFusion bugs are reported for GMC. Ship date must be imminent.
Mon Sep 21 11:11 PM
Its truly amazing that Johnny Cash would write the gruesome lyrics to Cocaine Blues back in the 60s when country music was largely tame
Mon Sep 21 10:47 PM
Johnny Cash has one of the smoothest voices all time. Listening to his cover of Tom Petty's "I won't back down"
Mon Sep 21 10:24 PM
Listening to Heart, Triumph, and Jefferson Airplane. If I were driving right now I'd be doing a hundred or more.
Mon Sep 21 8:36 PM
Just discovered the S3 Firefox Organzier plugin for managing files on an Amazon S3 file storage service. Uploaded crossdomain for Flex too
Mon Sep 21 11:43 AM
@JoeMcNallyPhoto Blog post not showing up. The link looks good though.

Watching "High End Industry Retouching Techniques" video tutorial on DVD
Sat Sep 19 7:01 PM
At Barnes&Nobles I usually find the ColdFusion books and put some in more prominent sections, like PHP, Java. Today there were none at all
Sat Sep 19 6:09 PM
What's wrong with this picture? #Linux
Thu Sep 17 11:27 PM
Wondering why I spent the money on JoeyL's Photoshop tutorial last year. Great photog, hack tutorial.

Thu Sep 17 9:17 PM
The Leica M9 Rangefinder camera. You'd never guess by its modest looks that it costs $7 Gs.

Thu Sep 17 7:54 PM
Figured out how to easily change the EXIF metadata in an photograph, like camera model, shutterspeed, etc. Might have fun with Flickr...
Thu Sep 17 5:16 PM
@demirkapi Cool, will be good to see you there. Wish I had more time to hang around but have to return to Boston that night. #CFDevCamp
Thu Sep 17 5:14 PM
Thank you Adobe for sending me to India several times and letting me rack up the miles. I'm flying to CFDevCamp for free. :-)
Thu Sep 17 4:23 PM
Signed up for CFDevCamp (mentor). Flying in Friday night, then back home on the redeye Saturday. #coldfusion
Thu Sep 17 4:10 PM
@jlamoree Ok Rachel Rae, put your stomach back in your pants ;)
Thu Sep 17 4:06 PM
@joaofernandes Since that's my topic at RIA Unleashed the week after CFDevCamp, I'll probably still be writing it on the plane
Thu Sep 17 3:51 PM
@webRat Better yet, I'll ask for Photoshop retouching tips!
Thu Sep 17 3:45 PM
@charliegriefer Question 1: Did the orange hot pants leave any elastic waistband marks? On second thought, I don't wanna know
Thu Sep 17 3:36 PM
Thinking of registering for ColdFusion DevCamp Nov 7th in San Fran. Mentor or attendee? Hmmm
Thu Sep 17 1:45 PM
Just discovered that my 7mo old son tweeted - 0" - when playing with my iphone last evening. Hope he didn't send any emails too
Thu Sep 17 1:41 PM
@tpryan If you're looking for a ColdFusion consultant to help manage your migration we can help you out ;-)
Thu Sep 17 12:50 PM
@commadelimited np. This pocket guide has nice section on using vid, including captioning:
Thu Sep 17 12:43 PM
@commadelimited On popup window try this: <mx:Button label="Close" click="myVideoDisplayComp.pause();PopUpManager.removePopUp(this);"/>
Thu Sep 17 12:37 PM
@commadelimited In one of the events related to closing the popup, issue themovie.pause()
Thu Sep 17 11:30 AM
@kroche Ah but the CF team there is nearly always available by email and chat until midnight their time. A dedicated bunch.
Thu Sep 17 11:20 AM
Hrm... Is it a holiday in India? Bangalore? I may have to wait till tomorrow to continue my conversation.

@matt416 What's the deal with CF on Mac? I used to QA CF on Mac/Linux/Unix/Win for Adobe.

Crap. Time for a bike ride after a very busy day, but now all the nutjobs are on the road after school. Lets hope I come back in 1 piece.

Tue Sep 15 9:31 PM
@joaofernandes @iotashan Shan has been neck deep in ORM for a while, and there's at least one thorn to deal with. Can't find bug num atm
Tue Sep 15 9:05 PM
@rukumar @iotashan Rupesh, We'd be very grateful if you have a moment to hear the issue.
