The good news is that there are at least two easy ways that you may well still be able to see that content you may be missing: the Google cache (to at least see the last version which Google may have cached), and the internet archive "wayback machine", which often lets you see YEARS back in the history of a page or entire site, including one that may be long-gone.
In this post I share tips (and gotchas) on using both tools.
They aren't GUARANTEED to have the page you're looking for, but I find that they do about 99% of the time I try them (and I use them a lot, because I'm often mining gold in old blog posts or articles which have gone away across many sites I have visited).
[Updated June 9 in a variety of ways, mostly minor, but with some additions in the "trip down memory lane" discussion.)
I offer below first the events at which I'll be speaking, and then the preso titles and descriptions for any readers interested. (As an update, I was informed on 5/16/17 that I'd been selected to speak at NCDevCon. While it's not in "spring/summer" per the subject above, I've added it to the info below.)
Dates announced for all six remaining ColdFusion/CFML conferences, and more Adobe CF Roadshow events
I had posted last month about the upcoming CF/CFML-related conferences and some other events which had BY THEN announced their dates (3 of them). I mentioned the other 3 that would typically happen, and indeed since then, those 3 have also announced their dates. And Adobe has announced still more CF Roadshow events.
So here's all the current detail on all 6 remaining CF/CFML conferences (their name, description, date, location, link, and info on call for speakers).
So here I present what I feel are the 100 (technically, 105) most interesting/useful posts made there over the past 3 years (2014-16), offering information about CF and CFML which should be valuable to readers for years to come.
In this post, I want to elaborate on one more common mistake. Well, mistake may be too strong word. It's about a default option when you run a Java JDK installer (see the other post for more on JDK vs JRE options).
In short, I make the case here for why you should NOT let the JDK installer implement its "public jre" option.
Many find after applying a ColdFusion update that either CF won't start at all, or they can't access the ColdFusion Admin, or some part of CF or their app doesn't work. The problem may be simply that there was an error in the update process CF did, and it may be rather easily confirmed and resolved.
In this post, I share several tips and observations to help resolve this, based on my years of providing remote CF troubleshooting support.
The TLDR version: check the ColdFusion update log (not logs in the normal CF "logs" folder. More detail below.) And if there are errors, try stopping CF yourself and then either try the update again, or if it still fails, try to manually apply the update from the command line. If that's enough to get you going, great--especially if you ARE in panic mode! (If the "problem" you need to solve, instead, is that you can't get CF to show you updates because you're behind a firewall preventing outbound internet access, I help with that also, toward the end.)
For most people, though, even those "simple things to do" can prove challenging (and understandably so). And you may find different resources on the web offering perhaps truncated discussions of the topics, which is why I elaborate on things in this post.
And even if you're in a panic, it may take only about 10 minutes to read this whole post. (You can also hire me to help instead, of course. See the link above.) Hope the info to follow is helpful for you.
