Blog, FuseBox, Surname, Houston, and Podcasts

Nov 18, 2009

Blog

As Brandi wrote, welcome to the latest and greatest incarnation of BrandiAndJohn.com.  This site began its life as our wedding website, designed by Brandi and developed by me.  It sat there for years until I redeveloped it as a blog in order to learn ColdFusion on Wheels.  I got 25% of the way toward what I wanted it to be...and ran out of free time.  Recently, I got sick of it just sitting there, so I insalled Mango Blog (also written in ColdFusion) and here we are.  At some point, I'll probably re-start the CFoW version but, for now, let's get to bloggin'!

FuseBox

It was recently announced that, for all intents and purposes, development of the grandaddy of all ColdFusion frameworks, FuseBox, has ceased.  After some initial consternation in those of us who chose FuseBox for mission-critical applications and sites, many in the community (including myself) have concluded that this is probably not a big deal.  That is: FuseBox v5.5 is stable and complete and there's no good reason to drop everything and convert all of those existing FuseBox sites to other frameworks.  Having said that, when it's time to start the next new site...

Surname

Our surname, "Bliss," is relatively rare so I was surprised by the following line from "Casino Royale":

Houston

Houston is a beautiful city with frequent, visually stunning skies.  Follow imsoapee on Twitter for random pics of same along with other interesting stuff, "Traffic? What traffic? It's effin gorgeous outside!! :)"

I found this post from a search on CFBloggers and couldn't resist replying. What, no ColdFusion podcasts in your list? There are several these days, CFConversations being one of them.
