Life And Times...

Ok, so I haven't updated the site w/my goings on as of late. Well, that cold I had really kicked my ass. I ended up spending the 3 day weekend in pretty much resting—I even ended up having to miss Justin's birthday/house warming party on Memorial Day. I just didn't want to risk getting everyone else sick—especially since everyone would be eating and drinking. Jenn's been sick since last Wednesday or so as well (I feel bad about giving her my cold.) She's feeling worse today and even stayed home sick.

Anyway, Maddie and I had training class on Tuesday night. She was pretty distracted during the class—she just can't get used to that "Gentle Leader" collar. Overall she was ok, but she just seemed restless the whole class. I'm going to spend more time working on training this week—it's obvious that I haven't spent enough time on the exercises up to this point. I went home for lunch yesterday and we spent the whole lunch working on training exercises—we also practice a bit more in the evening. She listens wonderfully as long as she know you have a "treat" in your hand. :)

Works going fairly well, I'm making good progress on my current project (which is due the end of June.) The biggest problem I'm having w/the project is the code has to run in CF v4.01—and I'm having problems finding compatibility charts to find when certain functions were introduced. There's been a lot of changes to the language in the past 4 years, and I've forgotten a lot of the rules for programming in CF4 (since the rules change from version to version.) I'm also really missing the "Request" scope.

I'm also looking into landscaping companies in the area—I seriously thinking about contracting a company out to help redo the yard. My neighbor's (Perk & Darcy) yard always looks so good and I'd really like to have a little more aesthetic appeal from the curb. Well, that's basically what's going on in my life.

  • I am feeling better, and i don't blame Dan for getting me sick. that is all part of being in a relationship right. I am not at 100% but hopefully on the road to recovery
  • The "gentle leader" thing works great... but my dogs never have gotten comfortable wearing it. They CONSTANTLY are pawing at their noses when the thing is on. Consequently, we rarely use ours anymore unless we know we'll be going somewhere with lots of other dogs where they will go bananas.

    You piqued my interest with the CF 4.01 problem... I did some pretty extensive searching on google, mm forums, houseoffusion, and fullasagoog... came up with nuttin' I can't even find a copy of the 4.01 documentation or release notes online anymore.

    Yeah, Maddie's doing the same thing. I'm trying to put it on here from time-to-time around the house. A few minutes here, a few minutes there. We'll see if that helps at all.

    Fortunately, I have docs for v4.0, but they added a ton of stuff in v4.01. I've been able to track down a few things that were added:

    - short circuit logic
    - the request scope

    However, I know there are a ton more that was added.
