I am doing ColdFusion development for 17 years and this is the first time it take me SO long to find a full-time remote position. Over 15 of this years i've worked for US based companies from Europe and it never was a very big problem to find the next position. Yes, there was pauses of course between long-term relationships with companies and i was working per project, but never too long. And this was from Europe where we had a big time difference and i had to work US working hours (imagine all time finishing the work at 1am-3am hehe). Almost 2 years ago I moved to Canada and I imagined that finding remote positions will be much easier, right? I mean, no or minimal time difference, easy to reach me by phone when needed and not just skype and emails, etc. Right? NOPE, not right at all! Till last June it wasn't a problem as i worked for a NY based company, but then they didn't get a contract that was expected and the devs was fired. And from that time, for over 9 months i am STILL act...

Recently started to get this error for a site that runs on Railo. It's happening only a couple times per day. The "usually helpful" Google was not so this time. So, thought maybe there is someone else that experienced such an issue before and may help? Details: There is already an object named 'cf_client_data' in the database. Error: CREATE TABLE dbo.cf_client_data (expires varchar(64) NOT NULL, cfid varchar(64) NOT NULL, name varchar(255) NOT NULL, data clob NOT NULL) Stack Trace: at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.SQLDiagnostic.addDiagnostic(SQLDiagnostic.java:372):372 at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.TdsCore.tdsErrorToken(TdsCore.java:2894):2894 at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.TdsCore.nextToken(TdsCore.java:2334):2334 at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.TdsCore.getMoreResults(TdsCore.java:643):643 at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.JtdsStatement.processResults(JtdsStatement.java:614):614 at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.JtdsStatement.executeSQL(JtdsStatement.java:573):573 at net.sourc...

While working on moving breadcrumbs from data-vocabulary.org structure to schema.org struture, i used the descrption and example provided on http://schema.org/WebPage, but aparently things does not really work as they are supposed to. If to take their example Books > Literature & Fiction > Classics and to paate it to Google Structured Data Testing Tool the result will come as Item type: http://schema.org/webpage property: breadcrumb: Books > Literature & Fiction > Classics which is not quite what we need. So, after some google found the solution on W3.org site and i believe it may be helpful to someone. Here is an example that will work just fine: Books Boring classics Bicycles For kids ...

Got an interesting email today that may be of interest to CF Community, so pasting it here: In an effort to assist the ColdFusion community, Adobe, and the larger open source world, a few leaders in the ColdFusion arena have stepped forward to form an open source software development group known as 'Team CF Advance'. The primary purpose of this development group will be to advance ColdFusion applications as an open source solution through development and improvement of open source software solutions combined with social marketing to help raise awareness of ColdFusion solutions as a viable open source option against other open source solutions. We will be working in concert with the Open CFML Foundation to build quality open source software solutions in ColdFusion (and various related technologies - e.g. HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Booststrap, etc.) and feed them into the foundation as they meet guidelines. This is an open group - developers and designers of any skill level w...

Few days ago i was playing with MyConnect Server and had to install the JDBC driver for MSSQL in order to save speed tests data to a database. And still no data got inserted into the DB. Checking the logs i found that "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.7 is not supported by this driver. Use the sqljdbc4.jar class library" which was weird as JDBC 4 is exactly what i downloaded and installed. The answer came after checking driver's installation folder. Apparently, because there was both the old and the new jdbc JAR files in the folder, MyConnect Server was picking the old one (sqljdbc.jar) and not the new one (sqljdbc4.jar). So, right after i stoped MyConnect service, deleted sqljdbc.jar and started MyConnect service again, things started to work as expected. It happened to me for MyConnect Sever software, but it easily can happen with any other software that uses jdbc driver. Hope it will help someone....

Maybe i am the last one to learn how to do it, but in case i am not, bellow are the details. Google recognizes the following breadcrumb properties which can be labeled using microdata. Property Description title The title of a breadcrumb. url The URL of a breadcrumb. child The next breadcrumb in the hierarchy. The child must be another Breadcrumb item. Let suppose you have the following HTML code describing a breadcrumb trail. <a href="http://www.example.com/dresses">Dresses</a> --> <a href="http://www.example.com/dresses/real">Real Dresses</a> --> <a href="http://www.example.com/dresses/real/green">Real Green Dresses</a> Then, the same HTML code marked up with microdata will be: <div itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb"> <a href="http://www.example.com/dresses" itemprop="url"> <span itemprop="title">Dresses</span> </a> --> <div itemscope itemty...
