Tomahawk Steaks and My Beef Rub

By |October 14th, 2018|Food|0 Comments

I recently acquired a Traeger grill and could not be more pleased. One of my new discoveries was a reverse sere Tomahawk steak which could be the finest cut of steak I have ever eaten. While it is not as fast as my previous favorite, it is well worth the wait. In looking at how to prepare the steaks I inevitably ran across the need to use some expensive seasoning blend that I do not have in the [...]

Relaunch of Project Corsair

October 14th, 2018|Categories: Code|Tags: |

While the website never really went down, I am happy to announce that Project Corsair has relaunched. So what is Project Corsair? Project Corsair is an interpretation of the US Web Design System (USWDS) 2.0. The purpose is to serve as a testing ground and candidate for one federal agency's template refresh, as well as providing examples for others to use. The initial ground rules are to stick with the USWDS as the foundation wherever possible, [...]

I Am Into the Box

September 14th, 2018|Categories: Code|Tags: |

This is just a short note and hopefully, an intro to a new series about the "Box" world. After watching ColdBox for about 7 years and never successfully getting it installed, times are a changin'. I took on a couple of new projects at work and decided that maybe it was time to give a framework a chance. I initially started with F/W1 and for whatever reason, I just could grasp how it works [...]

ColdFusion Bug States

July 25th, 2018|Categories: Code|

Reposting an old article (2014) because the Adobe ColdFusion Tracker still lacks professional oversight and management. If you take a look at the ColdFusion Bug Report you will see the following "States": Deferred Fixed Needs Review Never Fix To Defer To Fix To Test To Track Unverified Withdrawn The states can either have a status of open or closed. Like most large organizations, metrics that can be easily used to show progress are often misused [...]

Adding Video to WordPress

November 12th, 2017|Categories: Code|Tags: |

The other day I was asked how to add subtitles to video in WordPress, and unless my google powers have diminished, I could not find an easy way to do it without hand coding <video> and <track> elements. It turns out, in typical WP fashion it is easy, but atypically not immediately obvious. Knowing that WordPress uses MediaElements.js under the hood I knew it had to be possible, but when you use Add Media, Insert [...]

Working with JSON – an Intro

June 17th, 2017|Categories: Code|Tags: |

One of the real powers of ColdFusion is the ability to work with various types of data, but I find that it is often difficult to get started with something other than cfquery. I hope this helps others get started faster than I did. This is really my first foray into working with JSON for something other than charting, so if you see things that I should do differently I invite constructive comments. To [...]
