To the President of Syria, Mr. and Mrs. Bashar al-Assad
Mr. and Mrs. President Bashar al-Assad:
At the tender age of 17 months my severely ill daughter Sofia, an American
citizen, was abducted by her mother on Monday, July 26, in Istanbul, Turkey,
and taken to Syria.
Fox News: ▸ video ▸ story
I was informed yesterday by Sofia's mother that she will not be coming back
to the United States nor will she allow Sofia to return home.
Sofia has been diagnosed with a severe medical condition that requires
immediate treatment in the United States. It was scheduled to start on July
27, 2010, in New Jersey, the day after her abduction and was supposed to last
until she reaches the age of 3.
Any delay in the urgently needed treatment will result in a life-long
disability for Sofia and make her dependent for the whole of her a... (more)

Recently, with the introduction of ColdFusion MX 7.0.1, Macromedia began
fully supporting a Mac OS X Server installation of ColdFusion. OS X Server
used to be supported only in a development environment installed on top of
JRun, Tomcat, or some other J2EE application server. Opening this platform
has opened ColdFusion to a whole new audience and platform.
Mac OS X Server is regarded by many as an enterprise-class operating system
overshadowed for years by Windows servers and Linux. The introduction of Mac
OS X Server 10.4 (code named Tiger) brought Apple's enterprise entry to the
forefront when it comes to serving files, print services, e-mail, web sites,
and applications on the Apache Project's Tomcat J2EE Server. ColdFusion and
Mac OS X Server offers functionality never seen in Windows installations and
previously left only to Linux installations. One of these func... (more)

After Intel and IBM came up short this week, Google's Q3 numbers were
released early Thursday utterly surprising a market high on its business, an
enthusiasm that had driven its stock to all-time highs.
It missed big on both the top and bottom line, instantly creating a big
sell-off of its high-flown stock, losing $19 billion in market cap, before it
was halted at the company's request at $687.30, down roughly 70 bucks or 9%.
It was not clear what was going on and whether the company actually intended
an early release since it's unusual for a company like Google to post its
numbers during the trading day. The release also looks like a draft with a
placeholder for a quote from Larry Page.
A half and hour or so after the crisis broke Google came out and blamed RR
Donnelly, its filing agent, for sending its 8K to the SEC without
authorization. Such an event is practica... (more)
Using ColdFusion to glue together Verity 97 and a popular offline browser
results in a powerful but low-cost and easy-to-create searchable Web spider.
Past issues of CFDJ have laid down a great foundation for creating and
optimizing Verity collections.
This article expands on CFDJ's Verity-related articles by demonstrating how
to create an Internet Web spider not unlike Yahoo. Since Verity and the
offline browser utility do most of the work, simple ColdFusion code is used
to create the searchable Web spider.
According to whatis.com, a spider is "a program that visits Web sites and
reads their pages and other information in order to create entries for a
search engine index." A spider is only one piece of a Web search engine. We
also need a tool to create a Web site search index (or collection) and a tool
to search against the index with the user's search c... (more)

Maybe your build and deploy process for your latest application is fine - you

application from the source control system, configures the application
appropriately for the target environment, and copies all the necessary files
to the production servers while you head to the coffee shop for your morning
cup of caffeine and the newspaper. But I know that the reality for the vast

In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
