    FWIW, I remember that the site used to be in PHP as well:
    In otherwords, they converted from PHP to CF. 🙂

    Yes they did. When I was at Boardwatch Magazine, I spent several thousand dollars a year at Insight. I’ve always loved the prices and great support from Insight. It’s good to see more and more sites on CF.
    About a month ago, I got a call from a recruiter that a Denver company was moving from CF to .NET and wanted someone to maintain the CF code. She said CF was on the way out. What an idiot.
    And HI Brandon. What will it take to get you to a Denver CFUG meeting?

    re: She said CF was on the way out. What an idiot.
    Many recruiters in many parts of the world have this attitude. I wonder where they get it from – what with them being asked by employers to find people skilled in specific areas, what would they know?
    If recruiters are of the mindset that cf is on the way out, then thats reason for concern. These guys deal with skills and finding people with them. If they are not coming across coldfusion much (1 or 2 jobs per year they see in my state, and I hewar the same for entire countiries from folk in the newsgroups) they are not idiots for thinking cf is on the way out – one or two sites using cf hardly changes things when thousand and millions are switching to .net, php, ruby and java.
    Fact is, cf is a niche product these days. It is easy to see why developers and recruiters alike sometimes think it is dead. (which is of course not the case)
