RSS URLs

G'day:
A couple of the RSS URLs for this thing have changed. The correct ones are in the box to the right, and as follows:


I think the default one has stayed the same, but the "last ten" ones have changed, due to domain name change.

Sally Field

G'day:
After y/day's article "So long, and thanks for all the CF", a lot of people have been saying a lot of very flattering things. I've decided I'd sound even more like a wanker than usual if I thanked everyone individually, so I'll just say "hey, thanks for the kind words" once, now. That was it just there.

So long, and thanks for all the CF

G'day:
The rumours I've been seeding recently have turned out to be true. Today I got confirmation that I am leaving the CFML community and joining the PHP one.

CFScript 2.0 follow-up

G'day:
A few days ago I put up this article: "CFScript 2.0?". At that juncture I was just soliciting input from the community. It's worth reading the comments if you're not up to speed with them. Especially from a Railo perspective as Micha, the chief engineer, offers his thoughts. It's a pity we don't get similar input from Rupesh on this, from a ColdFusion perspective.

I think it's been favourable enough to warrant enhancement requests to the vendors, which I have now raised: RAILO-3199; ColdFusion: 3822362.

Go have a vote (one way or the other! Even if you disagree, your input is valuable), and put your oar in and let your vendors know what you want them to do.

Cheers.

Update regarding irritation: cheers Rakshith

G'day:
Y/day I got all ranty with this: "Please indicate your irritation @ the ColdFusion Team".

A bunch of people joined in the irritation (that sounds vaguely NSFW, I know), and fortunately Adobe have fed back:


Adam made a good follow-up point, and Rakshith responded positively to that too:


This is all positive. I thanked him on Twitter, but I just wanted to say thanks here too.

Good man, Rakshith: thanks.

Looking at PHP's OOP from a CFMLer's perspective (part 3/?)

G'day:
As the title says, this is the third part of a series. The first two parts are here:
I suspect this will be the last part on this topic, but don't hold me to that just yet. Let's see how it goes (update: no, not by a long march... I'm writing part 4 now, and there'll be more after that).

Basically I'm working my way down the topics on the "Classes and Objects" page of the PHP reference, and getting myself up to speed with how PHP does it's OO. And documenting my observations as I go.

Please indicate your irritation @ the ColdFusion Team

G'day:
They've gone and done it again, as apporproately described by Adam Tuttle:
