Upgrading to ColdFusion 2021

 If you're thinking of upgrading to CF21 and you use cfspreadsheet in your code, don't.

Cfspreadsheet, when doing read, randomly locks files anywhere from minutes to hours. The only way to get rid of the lock if you want to move or delete the file is to restart the main instance even if the file was locked by another instance.

On July 22nd, Adobe said that the issue is fixed in Update 2, but gave no eta from when Update 2 will be released.

Toyota Microphone Not Working

Do you have a recent model Toyota with Entune? Did your microphone and/or wifi suddenly stop working? The wifi app doesn't work. You can make and receive calls and can hear the other party but they can't hear you. Voice commands don't work anymore.

The issue is likely the DCM. You can verify it by looking at the display and seeing the DCM greyed out even when bluetooth is connected. Also, the SOS in the ceiling doesn't have a green light.

The fix is simple. Open the hood. Open the fuse box on the right. Pull out and put back the DCM fuse.

ColdFusion - using a colon in sql with queryexecute

queryexecute doesn't seem to allow escaping colons in sql.
Using MySQL regexp character classes will throw an error if entered in the sql directly.
A workaround is to add the regex expression as a queryparam.

The following will throw an error:
queryexecute("SELECT [column] REGEXP '[[:character-class:]]'...");

Here's the workaround:
queryexecute("SELECT [column] REGEXP :regex...",{regex:{value:"'[[:character-class:]]'"}});

Child unfriendly

The Metropolitan Museum of Art
"Water in plastic bottles may be brought into the Museum. Other food or drink is not allowed and may not be checked at the coat checks."

National Museum of the American Indian
"There are no facilities for eating in the museum. Food may not be consumed in the museum."
Entry and re-entry involves x-ray and search of bags and backpacks, going through a metal detector, and removal anything metal, including belts.
