I had done my share of javascript popup windows and now CF provides a much simpler method.

It appears that the latest version of browsers ie7 and FF3 don't allow you to open up a window using javascript with no address bar.  The location = no doesn't work anymore  (reference1, reference2)

You can also use some other javascript libraries that seem like the job like iBox.

I had a web hosting service for ColdFusion that was seemingly running slower and slower and slower.  I needed a way to validate what I was seeing.
After running SpeedTest on my current hosting, it took 40-50 seconds to return.  I later determined that this was on a shared hosting service using CF8 and W2003 ( )
I've since moved off that service and I'm on CF9 and w2008  ( ) and that same SpeedTest returned in under a second.

Found a way to call Ms Access queries from Cold Fusion.  Sometimes I don't have an option and have a MsAccess db backend.  One benefit to calling a query via a stored procedure is that my code is more modular and reuse.
