Probably not terribly useful to my readers as I've blogged this before, but I wanted to create a quick video tutorial on how to install the Ripple Emulator for PhoneGap developers. Feel free to share and give to team members who may be new to PhoneGap Development.
Ever since day one at Adobe I've had an odd issue with Outlook on my Mac. About 3-4 times a day it would 'forget' my password. As soon as I entered my password it worked, but it bugged me that I had to keep re-entering it. I Googled but never found the right answer. I deleted and recreated my profile numerous times, but it never helped.
Finally, Terry White (fellow Adobe evangelist!) made a simple suggest. Instead of entering my password in Outlook, I should be doing it in the Exchange settings via System Preferences.
So first you go here...
And then click Details:
That was it. Seriously. I can't believe I didn't figure that out earlier, but every single time I tried to fix it by Googling around I never came across this solution. (Probably because it was too obvious. ;)
I know, I know. The title sounds like SEO-link-bait, I apologize. I want to talk about something that I'm fairly excited about, and I hope it excites you as well.
A few weeks ago a reader asked if I had an example of infinite scroll with a ColdFusion back end. I replied that I did not, and that infinite scroll was the worst thing to happen to the Internet since the rainbow horizontal rule.
I'm possibly being a bit overly dramatic, but I'm really not a fan of it. Maybe it's the OCD in me, but the fact that I can never get to the end of an infinite scroll UI just bugs the hell out of me.
That being said - I figured - why not make a quick example. It can't hurt, right?
I'm totally stealing this content from the official ColdFusion blog, but as it is good news I think I'm allowed. The ColdFusion Summit, a ColdFusion conference organized by Adobe's ColdFusion team, is now officially announced. Details:
October 24th and 25th
Manadalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
Registration cost: $250
Each paid registration will receive a FREE copy of ColdFusion Builder (MSRP value of $299!)
Forgive the title, I'm not sure it best describes the task. I was asked by a reader to consider a simple problem. Given a list of dates, how would you rewrite them so that two (or more) consecutive dates are displayed together? For example, imagine this input.
Due to a problem back home, I have to leave the conference early. I'm giving my Mobile Web Debugging session in the first slot this morning (this schedule change will be announced this morning). Dave Ferguson will be covering my CF10+HTML5 session and Matt Gifford will be covering my PhoneGap session.
Passing it on...

I've come across multiple people lately who have been bitten by this so I thought a quick blog post would be useful for my readers. If you've recently upgraded your ColdFusion server or patched it, you may find some forms return an error when submitted. Here is an example:
