Restore an iPhone after it crashes and won't start anymore

I just had a crash on my iPhone, how rare, and it would not start up again. I would reset it by holding the home plus the power/sleep button for like 5 seconds and the Apple logo would show but nothing more. It stays there and does NOTHING!!!

I restart the phone and then it does not start no matter what.

I freaked out and went to the Apple store, just so they would not attend me because they are so full.

Finally, I did the following.

1) Turn it off by using the home plus power/sleep button.

2) Hit the home button and hold

3) Connect it to your PC/MAC

4) iTunes starts up and tells you after 10 seconds of holding that it detected an iPhone ready for restore.

5) Hit restore

6) Wait until it restores

7) Shout with SANITY!!

Follows these steps and you can revive your iPhone, without going to the Apple store and waiting for a MAC GENIUS (yea right!!) to do this.

Free ColdBox Training Date Extened and Hilarious Entry

The submission date has been extended until Wednesday 27th at 5pm pacific time. The winner will be announced the following day August 28th. You can download the contest rules to see the updates if you want.

Here is a snippet of a submission I got today, totally hilarious:

Dear Santa, I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the gifts that I've received over the years. The toy train set was great in 1976. My Atari 2600 was awesome in 1980. And who could forget the subscriptions to Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, Oui, and Reader's Digest. Good times.

But lately man: the presents have kind of sucked. 2006, I got a tie. A freakin' tie? I'm a programmer. 2007 was the month's supply of Rogaine. I understand the motivation there, but couldn't you have tested that on a bald elf first? Doesn't work.

This year I'm asking for an early gift. Luis and Matt are offering the gift of free ColdBox training.

If you could lend a hand and make that happen, I'll overlook the debacle of 2006's gift (really? A book on ASP.NET?), and that one year I saw you kissing my mom.

Reminder: Free ColdBox Training Ends Tomorrow

ColdBox Eclipse Reference Plugins Updated

20 Aug 2008 12:00 AM
The ColdBox Eclipse Reference Plugins have been updated to reflect all of the 2.6.1 API udpates. Please read this guide to learn how to install them or to update them, the version should be 1.0.5

The ColdBox SideBar, a developer's companion

Posted by Luis Majano
18 Aug 2008 12:00 AM
In our 2.6.1 release we included a new developer toolbar called the ColdBox SideBar. You can see a screenshot below:

The SideBar enables the developer to have a floating toolbar that will assist on development. You can reinit the framework, clear the cache, clear the log files, clear some of the most used scopes like session and client, and so much more.

It also appends itself to errors when they occur, so you can easily reinitialize or search for the errors in the live docs or the forums. Yes, you can search right from the sidebar.

Another extra feature is that the links declared are all customizable, so you can customize your own sidebar according to your project, create internal or external links, or anything you like.

Another extra feature is that the sidebar is completely skinnable via css, so you can make it look pretty!! So skin it and send over your screenshots.
