I just recently got my new powerbook g4 and it rocks. However, now the new ones came out, intel based and I am hitting myself on the head. They include an integrated ichat and specially Front Row with a remote.

Some googling later, I came up with this article from Andrew Escobar on how to enable Front Row for the powerbook. Awesome blog!! I followed the steps and wallah!! Front Row on my powerbook. All I need now is a remote!! Or maybe just trade it in for the MacBook Pros!!

Mac Tip Of The Day: Enabling the trackpad tap click

Thanks to a collegue of mine at work, Tom, he needed help on why the mac's trackpad does not produce a click when you tap it like any other pc. Well, the answer is that the mac does not have this feature enabled by default, neither the draggin using the trackpad.

So in order to enable this feature, you must do the following.

1. Open the System Preferences.

Mac Tip Of The Day: Scrolling a web page on the powerbook trackpad?

I am totally amazed day by day by my new apple powerbook. It is an incredible machine. However, when browsing the net without an external mouse, it was really tedious to track to the up/down scroll arrows and click on them, everytime I wanted to scrolll on a site. However, thanks to my geekiness and curiosity, I found out that two finger scrolling is enabled on this incredible machine.

So all you need to do to scroll on a page using your browser or any application by the way,

you just have to place two fingers, any fingers you like, one hand, two hands, whatever, and scroll up or down. Wallah!!!! you got virtual two-finger scrolling. This is truly amazing!!!

cflogin and the Application.cfc

I have been fooling around a bit with cflogin for the past day and found an interesting note on it. In order for the cfauthorization to take effect, the cflogin take must be called on every request.

For example I was trying to do a login and implementing the cflogin on a cfc. When I returned to my template, my cfauthorization variable was set on session, but my isAuthUser() was returning blank.

After an hour of basically playing around, I returned the cflogin to the Application.cfc and wallah. The security functions return values. So that's a relief.

So if you want to implement a cflogin security, make sure you are calling the cflogin tag on every request, in order for the security variables to take effect.

Finally Blog CFC 4.0.2!!

Well, Finally I got some time to update my Blog CFC installation by Raymond Camden to 4.0.2 from my 3.9 install.

I had forgotten how much I had to tweak, with all the layout changes I did. Anyways, Raymond?s code is great and everything is as it should be.

I will be redesigning the whole site soon, but I wanted to get this upgrade out of the way. I am planning on moving the site to my coldfusion framework, TeXtus. Which I will be unveiling in a few weeks.

This will change somehow my blogCFC install, but I am trying to implement it into the site and not a separate app. This way, my site can revolve around many apps, in one single framework.

Anyways, hope you enjoy the upgrade!! And give ray a visit.

bye for now.

Lighthouse Pro by Raymond Camden

I just recently downloaded LightHouse Pro by Raymond Camden. Lighthouse pro is a ColdFusion bug tracking application. It is incredibly easy to install and best of all it runs on a MySQL backbone. Actually you can also use access and MS SQL.

It can create different project loci and assign the loci to the projects. You can create different users that will be involved in the projects. Every time an issue is created/revised, emails can be send out to different users. A great statistics page where you can see the QA progress of your projects.

Overall this utility has organized all my debugging and enhancements for my projects. I truly recommend this utility in order to better organize yourselves in your software development.

It is very hard to loose track of bugs and enhancements over the life time of a project and this utility really brings this issues to a close.

Keep up the good work Ray!! I am a true fan!!

I just got a new Powerbook G4, from work, and so far it rocks. It is an incredible machine!!!

It came preloaded with tons of software and 2GB of RAM. The machines flies.

Eclipse rocks on this machine, starting up just like Dreamweaver, but without the usual dreamweaver crashes, sorry macromedia.

The new resolutions are incredible, up to 1440x960 so more space for coding paletes on NetBeans. True geek style!


Anywyas, I just wanted to share the joy of having this incredible machine. I truly recommend everybody out there to dump their windows machines, come in to the light, and get a MAC!!!

Viva APPLE!!
