Site

Software

I use ColdFusion Studio 5 and Dreamweaver MX 2004 for web development, spending an equal amount of time in each program. SQL Server is the database driving the site, and the ColdFusion MX 6.1 Enterprise server runs on Windows 2000 Server. "Not-a-blog" is so named because it is not a full-featured blog. It is a simple page put together in about 5 minutes using Dreamweaver's built-in features: Recordset and Dynamic Table, with my own Recordset Navigation server behavior thrown in. The blog search feature is also a point-n-click feature in Dreamweaver using the Dynamic Search Suite in combination with the Sort Repeat Region server behavior.
