Sara Corbett's article about Floyd Landis, '06 winner of the Tour de France, describes the purgatory of awaiting a verdict. Smartly she uses the phrase "suspicious imbalance in his body's testosterone" to describe the drug test results that started Landis' trouble. This is far more accurate than almost any other reporting. Even if the verdict is in his favor, the only redemption for Landis may be another shot at the Tour de France.

Figleaf presents Adobe ColdFusion 8

Fig Leaf Software had the Tim Buntel, senior product marketing manager from Adobe in DC yesterday to present the latest and greatest version of ColdFusion. With version 8, ColdFusion still maintains a place at the table for Web Development. Actually, calling our work web development is misleading because we are really developing internet applications for a wider variety of formats and devices. For example, it is now possible to create an application that is entirely pdf based. I hadn't thought of pdf as Web 2.0 (an Adobe did make this claim). The presentation yesterday made it clear that when looking at this wider scope of application, especially for the enterprise, ColdFusion not only is at the table but elbowing a few others to take a more prominent place. Since Allaire, the product has now fully transitioned from a cutting edge, inexpensive, solo web programming tool to an enterprise application with support that works with the enterprise backend. So thanks to Fig Leaf folks for keeping us update on ColdFusion and Adobe.
