Call For Speakers

Posted by Aaron West at 9:45 PM in User Groups, ColdFusion, Flex, Flash

I'm working on the next several months of user group meetings for the Nashville ColdFusion User Group. Planning content, presentations, etc. I'm putting a call out to the ColdFusion community for folks that may be interested in presenting to our group. We've had tons of great presentations the last 2 years (both in person and via Breeze) and I want to continue providing relevant, cutting edge content to the group. If you are a speaker (or aspire to be) and you would be willing to present to our group, please send me an e-mail (trajik210 at Google mail) including your topic idea.

As a side note, there are several people in our group who present on a regular basis who would probably be willing to present at other user groups across the country. Managers, get in touch with me if this interests you!

Site Downage

Posted by Aaron West at 9:35 PM in ColdFusion, General, Site News, Blogging

This evening, between 5:33pm CST and 6:05pm CST, my blog was down due to network issues with HostMySite. According to HMS...

...the service governing the authentication protocol on the server where your website is located became corrupted. Our infrastructure team immediately responded to this incident, and corrected the problem. We are continuing to investigate the initial cause of this issue.

For those that tried to view entries during this time I apologize. On a less important note I pulled Ray's new files from SVN and upgraded the blog to 5.5.003. Thanks Ray!

It figures I would spend the time to get my blog up to date with the latest BlogCFC and then Ray would release a new version. This time I'm going to try and keep up with the releases instead of getting behind. So, tonight I'll be upgrading things to 5.5.003 which includes several bug fixes (one of which has been plaguing my Inbox) and some new features like Contribute support. I'm using this post to test another potential bug where blog subscribers are not e-mailed when an un-released post is finally released. We'll see what happens.
