I just had to turn down a job. Thats sorta horrific really, given that I've been separated from my family for FIVE MONTHS while I try to find a job in Colorado.
I hate turning down jobs, I hate turning down AWESOME jobs even more... and it was, in every imaginable way, aside from the $30000 dollar pay cut... yowza. Didn't see that coming.
I was avoiding saying anything here... Seemed karmically like a bad idea.
As it turns out, we just posted an ad on the Phoenix CFUG for another dev... and I thought, if I can ask for people to fill a position on one CFUG, I think Karma will tolerate me asking for a position to fill on a different CFUG.
So... anybody know of a CF web dev III open in northern colorado? (Or... js... SQL... you know, I'm comfortable being traitorous if I have to, so maybe... PHP? dotNet?)
Is it just me, or is YesNoFormat() the most myopic built-in function in the history of programming?
Yes and No are the absolute bottom of the boolean food chain... which looks something like this:
So... YesNoFormat()? Seriously?
Sometimes I think the CF engine developers, have, over time, done things to cause programmers to choke on their Mountain Dew.
HOWEVER... because silly begets silly, sometimes you NEED to say "Yes" when you mean 1
The idea of writing a function that ONLY converts recognized booleans to Yes and No is really wasteful. Not focusing specifically on that ONE NESCESSITY, you realize that sometimes you need to say "Monkey" when you mean 0... and sometimes you need to say true when you mean "Rhinoceros"
Which brings me to the "If you aren't part of the solution..." section of my rant... behold!
I needed to convert something ridiculous to a boolean recently, and realized I've written this function, or a variation of it, too many times not to start maintaining a single version.
Feel free to use it or comment on it if you find it at all handy...

Looks like Travis AKA OhkaBaka put forward a challenge to increase posts. As a past speaker and contributer for Denver CFUG I'll see if I can meet his challenge. I hope you do to. I've set up a new site http://www.runrocket.com , currently in beta, that includes CFML examples all the way up to MX 7.2. They are designed to supplement ColdFusion LiveDocs. The examples are designed to be intuitive and easy to execute. I've also included a zip file with all the dependencies if you want to run them on your own environment without any real setup. Please note, though, that since I've switched to Railo, some of them don't work. I'm fixing them as I can. Hope the site helps you in some way.

I'm the new guy. I'm gonna get all superior and preachy now... isn't that just the way?
I suspect I'm a little spoiled on the Phoenix CFUG, which produces about three to five messages a day. Granted they have 270 members... but still.
Lets do the math, assuming there is only one or two new messages a day (and a bunch of replies) from that group, a group that is one seventh the size could be producing one message (and a bunch of replies) each week, doncha think?
WHERE IS THE LIFE, my brethren?
Somebody ask a question! Somebody challenge our uberness! Somebody teach us a new trick. Somebody say something, because really, if you let me keep going it'll all be obnoxious Grail quotes and references to comic books and grotesquely gooey reflections about how awesome my son is.
Viva la Fusionaires!
So you think you are feeling lucky? 3 copies of CS4 being given away tonight!
Just a reminder that the main event is tonight! We will have pizza, soft drinks, live music not to mention a sneak peak at Flex 4, CF9 and ColdFusion Builder (Bolt).
Please note that the room can very slightly and we will be close to room 323 this evening. If 323 is taken, just look for a room with some pizza and dew at the door. We have lots of swag to give away tonight! Everything from stickers to backpacks.
We will start gathering at about 6:30 and we will start the presentation at 6:45 or so.
Parking: There is a small parking lot to the west of Sturm Hall. Last month the parking lot was blocked off. There is a very large parking garage on the South East corner of Evans and High St. The parking lots take credit cards and cash so you should not have to worry too much about digging through your coin tray.
After the meeting if you want to go grab a quick drink there is a little dive college bar down the street from the hall that we hit last month. It is a short walk from the hall and is on the north east corner of Evans and Gilpin St.
Has anyone heard if there is a meeting tonight?
I just wanted to remind everyone that I will be presenting an introduction into Service Orientated Architecture tonight. If you find your business logic to get a bit spaghetti like SOA is a way to help you keep it closer to lasagna. We have some giveaways from CFUnited. The presentation will only be about an hour depending on the number of questions. After the meeting there will be a opportunity for some networking over refreshments at a venue yet to be determined.
In case you have not seen all the happenings on Twitter and the mailing lists today Railo 3.1 has been released.
