A few days ago a user reported an issue with my blog involving the comment form. Apparently he has an email address using one of the new TLDs (top level domains) that are cropping up, specifically "directory." I decided to do some testing to see how well ColdFusion supports these new TLDs. First off, it was a bit difficult to find out what has been added recently, but I did find a Wikipedia page with everything listed: ICANN-era generic top-level domains. I knew new TLDs were coming, but my god, I had no idea how many and how... weird some (translate)

I have only tested what I'm about to share in ColdFusion 10, but I have no reason to believe that it will be any different with other versions, as it appears to be entirely how things are handled client-side. I can never remember what the appropriate header name is for specifying the file name, so the first thing I did was google for it. That took me to Ben Nadel's blog post on streaming (translate)

This post deals with removing connector residues on web-servers, IIS and Apache, if and when the wsconfig utility is not available for un-configuring existing connector configurations.

So hey, remember I built an open source ColdFusion survey application? This morning someone sent in a good request and I quickly added it. Surveys may now have an "attachment" question. Basically it means you can create a survey that also asks people to upload an attachment. You can grab the latest bits on GitHub: (translate)
