Blog Issues

I'm currently having some issues with this blog, and I've been considering v3.0 redesign, now seems like a good time! Please bear with me as my time is currently limited, I hope to get this done asap.

Thanks Alan Rother (@AlanRother) and John Whish (@aliaspooryorik) for the heads up.


AboutWeb Welcomes Sandy Clark

It is my pleasure to announce that Sandy Clark has recently joined the AboutWeb team. I'm sure most of you know Sandy from her involvement in the ColdFusion community and her presentations and articles on coldfusion, cascading style sheets, usability and accessibility. We are excited to have her in our team.

We are also still looking for other ColdFusion and Flex developers in the DC Metro Area, if you or someone you know is looking to work for a great company and with great people like Sandy, please email your resume to pnacelli[at]

Rolando Lopez is back

Just want to give a quick shout out that my good friend and colleague Rolando Lopez is back in the bloggosphere with a totally redesigned and fresh new blog.

I have the privilege to be Rolando’s colleague and friend (Thanks Rob Gonda!) and I have to say that it’s always a joy to have technical discussions with him. His skills and knowledge on CF and Software Architecture that I see potentially being discussed in his blog will without a doubt be an asset to us all.

Please help one of our own - Joe & Dale Rinehart

I'm sure by now many of you have heard of, or had the pleasure of personally meeting Joe Rinehart, one of our own community's most selfless and dedicated individuals. And by now you may have heard about his wife Dale's recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I'm very fortunate to know Joe and have met his wife Dale at past conferences and I have to say they are both incredible people. Also, like many of you, I have benefited from his work with Model-Glue and his knowledge which he is always willing to share either via his always great presentations at conferences or on an individual basis. Regardless of the circumstances, Joe is always there willing to help or contribute with enthusiasm.

It's well known that Multiple Sclerosis treatment costs are very expensive. Regardless if the patient has adequate medical insurance coverage they still have many out-of-pocket expenses. This is where you, the ColdFusion community comes in. We are asking everyone who can, to please visit and help us say thanks to all his efforts while supporting them.

Thank you.

Neat SVN Monitoring Tool - CommitMonitor

Just found this neat tool for monitoring my svn repo commits, thought I'd pass it along. In the past I have used Trac's rss feed but for quick monitoring without the need to install and setup Trac, CommitMonitor does a superb job.
