There is an interesting post on Ray Camden's blog for the "Friday Challenge". I suggested the challenge of doing a directory compare to show file differences.

FuseBox 3 Lite

On the Barney Blog, there is a new framework that I have started using. It is FuseBox like, but all the code fits in Application.cfm. This consists of three functions and a little extra code.

I made a screencast demonstrating the use of FB3Lite.

Web 2.0 Logo Generator

This is the first logo generator that actually looks good. Now if it would just allow you to change the text color, then it would be awesome.

P.S. Yes, I know that there are many tutorials for Photoshop to do this (and I have Photoshop), but they never come out right. I am a good programmer, but a terrible artist.

Flash and new IE feature

One of the new security features in Interent Explorer makes you click on a Flash object to "activate" it. It sounds like this will make sure that the only entity that uses the object is the user since you have to click on it.

Until you activate the object it has a border around the object. I used to ignore it as a minor display issue, but I had to fix a site that had a Flash object behind a drop-down menu and was causing people to click the menu twice to go anywhere. (First click activated the Flash object and the second click worked like normal.)

It seems there are a lot of hacks to get around this "feature". The simplest one involves using JavaScript to document.write the object into the page.

The document write solution is listed on this Adobe Developer Article.
