Every now and then, it’s good to have a clean out huh.. 2-3 seconds response time (!) down to 200ms. Not quite sure what happened with that old box, but hey. Fresh installs FTW.
OxAlto Design is the work of one person, Tom King. I established OxAlto Design in 2007 to provide a web and print service aimed at small to medium sized businesses, sole traders, individuals and departments in higher education.
So two years ago I started up a linode – yep, I’m still with them for my LAMP stack stuff. I really have no complaints, whatsoever. Since being with them they’ve bumped up my storage to 48GB from 40GB (for free), I’ve had one network problem (which affected everyone in my datacentre) about 18 months [...]
In response to “What does your VLE say about your institution?” on the TALL blog at Oxford University – they pose the statement: “The evolution of an institution’s VLE is the narrative of that institution’s attitude towards, and relationship with, learning technologies.” To me, VLE design usually falls into two categories: 1) an open source [...]
HasManycheckbox() is obviously only one way of updating these relationships. The other main way is via cunning uses of includePartial(). Let’s return to our contact’s email addresses – remember the contact ‘hasMany’ of those. We need a way to a) list their existing email addresses, b) add new ones (preferably within the same update form [...]
So far we’ve setup the database tables and the models, so now we need to start thinking about getting and updating this contacts data, including the associated nested properties. Outputting a simple add/edit form should hopefully be familiar to you by now (if not I recommend checking out the cfwheels screencasts: http://cfwheels.org/screencasts ). When updating [...]
Let’s look at an example call to a contact, but without any of it’s relationships. So, the simplest possible call – find me one contact row where id = 1. Well, it’s good to see our createdAt field got autofilled, and our calculated property of fullname made it through too. deletedAt is null, which is [...]
Now it’s just a matter of representing these relationships in cfWheels so we can create/update/delete some data. models/Contact.cfc So I’ve done a couple of things here worthy of note: I’ve set some default values for the firstname and lastname properties – namely the label name: I want this to display as ‘First Name’ rather than [...]
No, this isn’t going to be a guide about getting on with your loved one (unless of course, your loved one is a certain open source coldFusion framework) but will specifically look at all the different types of relationships in cfWheels, and what they mean in terms of real world application design. I’m going to [...]
I don’t usually get the time to play around with Amazon’s cloud offerings, but I’ve started a project recently which has a need for CloudFront, Amazon’s Flash Media Server streaming solution. I remembered that Railo 3.x and upwards has S3 support (which CloudFront uses as it’s storage) – I wasn’t really prepared for quite *how* [...]
The Oxford Internet Institute have been playing around with their own Visualization Library which is out there as open source. One of the things I’ve been doing recently is building the back end to a customiser, which takes your data and preferences and gives you a nicely compiled version. The back end is written in [...]
