Well, I am back from my vacation to Amazing Thailand!! Wow what a wonderful country, we spent about 12 days in Asia with my wife. You can look at the amazing pictures here:

Photo Gallery

The trip was amazing, we started in Hong Kong for two days then to hectic Bangkok. What a busy city, reminds me of mexico city.  We then headed to Krabi in the south of thailand to a beautiful resort called Tubkaak. What a resort!! In the middle of the jungle with a beach. The pictures tell the story.  We then headed to Koh Phi Phi island, where they filmed the Beach. Amazing beaches!!We did not have the greatest weather there, almost threw up on the boats, but overall a great experience.

We then headed to Koh Samui another island chain. WOW!! This island has it all. You can go elephant riding, snorkeling, jungle exploration, etc.  And the restaurants are amazing.  We then concluded our trip in Bangkok for 5 more days.  Thailand is indeed a beautiful country, the people are extremely nice and best of all it is really cheap!! Really really cheap.

 Well enjoy the pictures.

WOW!! A Delorean!!

ASP vs CFMX!! CFMX by far beats ASP in functionality

I have just finished installing a custom DHTML editor for a friend on his ASP website. However, I had to actually make the javascript work with his ASP backend. And phew!!! Let me tell you, WHAT A PAIN ASP IS!!!

I had completely forgotten how incredibly painful ASP is. Coldfusion is by far a more robust and simpler web application framework than ASP.

I practically had to build my own JSStringFormat function, already available in Coldfusion, for ASP. Basically, breaks and carriage returns in ASP were completely throwing Javascript off. So I had to build a small function to string replace these characters into "escaped" Javascript friendly items.

For those ASP users, which I believe are in the dark ages, here is the little snippet.

Private Function Strip(byVal string)

Strip = Trim( Replace( Replace( Replace( string, vbCrLf, "\n" ), chr(10), "\n" ), chr(13), "\n" ) )

End Function

I had to also try to remember how simple recordsets worked in ASP, OHH MY GOD, the dreaded ADODB.recordset.

Anyways, this post is to enlighted the ASP community to please see the light, COLDFUSION!!

Well, yet another storm is approaching South Florida and panic mode has just started. I am at the office doing complete database and application backups and getting ready to go home and panic.

I truly hope this time, the electricity does not go out and no major damages occur. And they just finished fixing my roof last week.

Rita is coming...

My First Blog

Hi and welcome to my blog. This is my first time blogging and all thanks to Ray Camden's BlogCFC.

It is a great tool, a basic plug and play application. However, I took the liberty of modifying some of the Look And Feel. I created a new podlayout on the left and use my own site's css. And well, added a few tweaks here and there.

Overall BlogCFC is an incredible tool. As a software engineer I found the code to be extremely well organized and everything where it should be. So a big applause for Mr Ray Camden.

I will start posting my software ideas and personal notes in this blog, so feel free to comment all you want. Suggestions are always welcomed.
