Introduction & Comments

CFReport – at 11:22

Konference Korner – at 39:17

  • First off, let's talk about the new contest for cf.Objective() (May 3-6, 2007 in Minneapolis, MN)
    • Two passes to give away. One on the March 12th podcast and one on the April 9th podcast
    • Works just like the CFUnited giveaways -- you need the entry code, so listen to the podcast for this week's code!
  • Now that frameworks is over, CFUnited is peeking its head.
    • Just remember that early bird (not the early early bird that we had in Jan) pricing ends on 3/31. Just something to think about if you are getting work to pay for it.
    • Listen to the podcast for this week's entry code!

CFQuery – at 45:09

  • John asks about setting up CF on a Mac (although he thinks that Peter was the one)
  • Simon from Cold Boston on Steve Nelson's comment on relying on other people's code since CF itself is somebody else's code (his comment was maybe you should use Assembler or something)
  • Phillip Senn in our first unsolicited roving reporter, um ... report--Adobe User Group meeting in Charlotte, NC
  • John Allen calls about meeting Matt and Frameworks saved my life...

CF_Quiz – at 52:40

  • Version 2.05 - Deadline: Saturday, February 24, 2007, Noon EST
    • Give us two different ways you can limit the file size of a file being uploaded to ColdFusion.
