Coldbox 3.0 and the CFC Config...
One of my favorite new features of Coldbox 3.0 is the ability to have a CFC only config file. Thats right, no more XML. No don't get me wrong, XML has its place, but I love the ability to get funky with my config file. With it now being a CFC, I can do some crazy cool stuff.
- I can now have my config files all extend a base config file or any other CFC, now thats cool.
- I can get creative with defining my enviromental variables, or create any other kind of helper functions.
- I can easily set a variable anywhere in the config file and EASILY refer to it.
These are just a few of the ways that I have already taken advantage of the Config.cfc.
What are some ways you have? Feel free to comment with any crazy or funky ideas you've used or plan to use with a fully ColdFusion-ifide (its a word, look it up) config file, I'd love to hear them.

ColdFusion ORM - filtered has[property] gotcha...
I was working more with Coldfusion 9 ORM and found another small caveat I thought I would share. When working with a relationship that is filtered, the implicit "has[property]", the has does not take into account the filter. The implicit get works as expected however. Consider the following persistent cfc...

jQuery tabs and IE caching...
I ran into an interesting issue using the jQuery UI tabs ajax style and Internet Explorer.
If you setup the tabs with the with the cache turned off, they will still be cached in IE. I had worked around this issue by adding a counter that changed every time to my href for the tab, but I found a more elegant solution and thought I would share.
