Titanfall, grills, and Amazon TV kick things off this week. Scott and
Dave talk about a good use of the Twitters. Then they give their
thoughts on ColdFusion "Thunder" (cue 80's cop show music). They wrap
things up with an Adobe Forum post that will blow your mind, and our
hosts get some closure.
This week Scott and Dave get into the "Blame Game", the recent debate
over who is most responsible for ColdFusion sites that get hacked well
after the patches were released by Adobe. Scott updates us on his golf
league website and its switch to Railo. The guys discuss Mailinator and
the fun process of generating unique email addresses for sites requiring
an email address. And what episode of CFHour wouldn't be complete
without discussing yet another bad Stack Overflow answer, this one
having to do with including headers and footers.
This week Scott and Dave discuss patent trolls who are trying to license
all podcasts. They talk about the incredible ineptitude that happened
with the Target debacle, update you on the Windows 8 touch version for
Firefox, discuss some things related to Scott's switch to Railo
including how HackMyCF handled it and how quickly the Railo bug he found
was fixed. They wrap up by discussing more things wrong with the CF
community (hint...it involves StackOverflow posts), and then Dave breaks
down his experience with CFClient Beta.
This week Matt "The Awesome Producer (emeritus)" Gifford joins Scott and
Dave to talk about whether or not "CFML is dying". The trio also talk
about insecure passwords, Scott's experience in trying Railo, Dave's
experience in trying Handlebars, numbers nowbeing numbers, and a cool
new jQuery plug-in.
