Lately i started thinking on my income for retirement and realized i need a source of side income flow. After research i found about such a thing as robo-advisors. As per Wikipedia Robo-advisors or Robo-advisers are a class of financial adviser that provide financial advice or Investment management online with moderate to minimal human intervention. They provide digital financial advice based on mathematical rules or algorithms. These algorithms are executed by software and thus financial advice do not require a human advisor. The software utilizes its algorithms to automatically allocate, manage and optimize clients' assets. There are a lot of them (apparently over 100) right now, but after searcg and research, for myself, i've choosed Wealthsimple and here is why: it's among the best and biggest it's super easy you get a fully diversified portfolio across 10 asset classes based on your personal risk tolerance will handle it all: trading, cash, movements and state...

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...

A new report by iMPERVA shows that from 2005 through today, SQL injection has been responsible for 83% of successful hacking-related data breaches. Based on the sites they were monitoring, over half of attacks originate in United States. Country Number of Originating Attacks % United States 48176 58 Sweden 8850 11 China 6709 8 Great Britain 4970 6 Vietnam 2412 3 Netherlands 1963 2 Bulgaria 1359 2 Ecuador 1356 2 European Union 1093 1 Germany 971 1 Other 4748 6 The vectors of attacks are: Direct Query Manipulation This is often done by appending a logical expression with a known value to the parameter that the application expects, like:? OR 1=1 to get a true value or 1?/**/ aND/**/?8?=?3 to get a false value. This type of vectors is most often used to establish the existence of a SQL in...

Had an interesting task last days. To make a script that would access a couple of links, get from each one zip file, extract CSVs from them and then import the recors to a MSSQL Database. So with just a few ColdFusion tags like CFSET, CFHTTP, CFZIP, CFLOOP, CFDIRECTORY and CFQUERY it's a piece of cake to make it work. BUT, (yeah yeah again a BUT hehe) because the CSVs had a lot of records and it had to be done repeatedly for many of them, it came to be a serious issue from performance perspective. In other words it took about 28 minutes to run that task for 1 day data. So, the smart thing to do in such situation is: let each tool do what it can do best. In other words i had to make MSSQL Server do the import instead of ColdFusion. The steps was as follow: Created DTSXes for each of the import format Created a Stored Procedure that would execute the right DTSX for the right CSV with data In the ColdFusion script change the code that read and insert te records with just a call...

I am not a permanent visitor of blogs about SEO, but time to time i do check on this and this weekend i came across a post from April that states that Google now use site speed in their search ranking algorithms. So what does this mean? Nothing if you not care about how well your site ranks in google search results and a lot if you do. Well, it seems like it doesn't influence TOO much the results right now (if any), but they started to use it, so things will change. While site speed is a new signal, it doesn't carry as much weight as the relevance of a page. Currently, fewer than 1% of search queries are affected by the site speed signal in our implementation and the signal for site speed only applies for visitors searching in English on at this point. We launched this change a few weeks back after rigorous testing. If you haven't seen much change to your site rankings, then this site speed change possibly did not impact your site. We encourage you to start looking at...

Sometimes may happen in a database there to be fields with different Collations and it will make you problems. Previously i wrote about a way to get over this issue directly in your queries. Other option is to change the collation on the sql server for that "problem" column. Here is an example of how to do it: Alter Table yourTable Alter Column yourColumn varchar(1000) Collate Latin1_General_CI_AS Easy :)...
