QuackFuzed.com is the personal ColdFusion coding blog of Matt Quackenbush. It exists primarily as a place for the author to learn, and hopefully to assist others in learning and/or avoiding some of the same pitfalls and mistakes. (Quack certainly makes enough mistakes daily to make up for the entire ColdFusion community.)

Disabling the God-Awful "Emergency Alerts" on a Samsung Galaxy S2

Posted on December 19, 2012 at 5:53 PM in General, Rants

I've had my Galaxy S2 for well over a year now, and until yesterday I had never even heard of an "emergency alert" on a phone. I was focused on something when suddenly the silence was pierced by my phone screaming at me and a message popping up about an AMBER Alert.

The cf.Objective() Content Advisory Board have just officially opened the Call for Speakers for the 2013 edition of The World's Only Enterprise ColdFusion Conference. Last year we had speakers from all around the world: USA, Canada, England, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Germany, Australia (and probably others that I'm not remembering) were all represented. This is the year for YOU to speak!

I want to use the various Libre Office products as my defaults. XUbuntu wants me to use something else. I win.

jQuery next()/nextAll()/siblings() + dialog() Gotcha

Posted on June 16, 2012 at 10:31 PM in General, jQuery

So today I was writing up a simple little form hint with a jQuery UI dialog popup with more details on the hint. The code was actually quite simple:

Thank You, cfUniForm...

Posted on June 13, 2012 at 9:13 PM in Uni-Form Tag Library, jQuery, ColdFusion

This probably comes as no surprise, but it has been many years since I have written a form without the aid of cfUniForm. Today, however, I had a need to throw together a ridiculously quick and simple upload form on a project that only has this one form on it. Hardly enough to warrant adding cfUniForm into the mix. Or so it seemed.

cfUniForm v4.6.0 - IMPORTANT PrettyComments XSS Vulnerability Fix Release

Posted on September 11, 2011 at 5:38 PM in Uni-Form Tag Library, jQuery, ColdFusion

IMPORTANT: If you have textareas in any of your forms, you will want to upgrade!

A big THANK YOU! to Marc Esher for identifying an XSS vulnerability with the plugin that cfUniForm had previously used for "expandable" textareas. Marc contacted the author of the PrettyComments jQuery plugin repeatedly in an effort to help the author resolve this issue. However, the author gave no indication that he was interested in a fix. Because of this, cfUniForm now uses Elastic for expandable textareas.

Mura CMS Mailing List Import: How to Avoid a PATH Error

Posted on September 3, 2011 at 5:58 PM in ColdFusion, Mura CMS

Before I get into the meat of the post, I have to give some major props to the folks at Blue River. In no particular order, Christine, Sean, Matt, Malcom, Steve, and Eddie put together an absolutely awesome conference, MuraCon 2011 last week in beautiful Sacramento, CA. For a first-year conference, I think MuraCon knocked it out of the park. Here's to hoping for a MuraCon 2012!

Just one request for 2012, guys: Can we do it one week earlier so I don't have to miss another football game/band performance? I thoroughly enjoyed hanging with you guys, but I've been in Texas for over a decade now, and, well, from late August until just before Christmas, Friday Night is meant for the Lights! :D

ColdFusion/Railo on Tomcat: Request Timeouts

Posted on July 19, 2011 at 6:49 PM in Railo, ColdFusion

This is totally basic stuff for those who are use to a Tomcat setup, but for those who are new (or relatively new, like myself) to Tomcat, it's critical information. Hopefully by posting it I will do two things:

  1. Help someone else
  2. Remember it myself

Announcing the cfUniForm-users Mailing List

Posted on July 6, 2011 at 11:16 PM in Uni-Form Tag Library, ColdFusion

Short. Sweet. To the point.

Done.

cfUniForm v4.5 - Now on GitHub

Posted on July 4, 2011 at 8:58 PM in Uni-Form Tag Library, ColdFusion

After being prodded by several folks for over a year now to move cfUniForm to a public repository, and specifically GitHub, I am pleased to announce that I have finally taken the Git plunge. Git is a dramatic departure from SVN, but it is oh so good in oh so many ways. I feel like I am barely beginning to scratch the surface in git goodness, and can't wait to move *everything* to git.

For now, though, I just wanted to make sure and send out a quickie post to let everyone know that cfUniForm v4.5 is officially available now, and that you can grab it from RIAForge or from GitHub.

Hopefully I can find (make!) some time to get some more detailed posts out in the next few days/weeks, but for now, take a look at my Forms That Don't Suck presentation and demo code, as they contain all kinds of goodies not previously available.
