It's been a while since I gave something away. I like to give things away, it makes me feel like I am doing something good for our community and, hopefully, for the receiving person. Today, I also want to do something for our veterans.
To start, I would like to give away a copy of ColdFusion Builder 1.0 (Preferably to someone who does not have it already).
I think ColdFusion Builder is a fantastic product. I use it every day and I love it. I use it at work, I use it at home. I recommend it to everyone. For this giveaway, I'd like to know, briefly, what excites you about ColdFusion Builder. Leave me a comment that tells me one or more of the following:
- What feature are you most excited about using in ColdFusion Builder
- What feature would you most like to see in the future
- Why would you like to use ColdFusion Builder over what you are using now?
- If you could change one thing about ColdFusion Builder, what would it be?
NOTE: I do not work for Adobe. I am taking this survey to satisfy my curiosities about why people are, or are not, using CFB.
Honoring our VeteransToday (11/11) is Veterans' Day in the United States of America. This is the day that we honor our veterans for the sacrifices they make and the protection they provide us. Their dedication to duty is what keeps us safe and helps make America the truly awesome country it is today. Thank you veterans.
To further the benefit of this giveaway, I intend to give $1 for every meaningful comment left on this entry to a worthy veterans' charity (not sure which one yet), up to $50 (I need to be reasonable).
In addition to the comments above, if you'd like to leave a dedication to a veteran or to veterans in general as a comment, that would be great. NOTE: Dedication to Veterans will only increase the charity donation. Only meaningful comments about ColdFusion Builder will be entered in the giveaway of CFB.
To help drive home what serving our country means, I'd like to share with you the six articles of the United States Fighting Forces Code of Conduct. These articles helped inspire me while serving, and I hope they can give non-veterans an idea of what it means to swear that oath.
Article 1I am an American fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.
Article 2I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.
Article 3If I am captured I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.
Article 4If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back them up in every way.
Article 5When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am required to give name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause.
Article 6I will never forget that I am an American, fighting for freedom, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.
