Welcome to, the personal homepage of Brandon Purcell. I started building many, many years ago to share information I ran across everyday in my role as a Support Engineer and Consultant for Macromedia/Adobe. As a support engineer and consultant I always had a lot to blog about but as I moved into managment roles at Adobe my technical content dwindled.

I currently work as the Director of Technology for Universal Mind. My primary responsiblity is managing the SpatialKey project and it has been an amazing experience. I have been spending a lot of time working with Amazon Ec2 and will share my experiences through the blog in the future. I truly believe that Cloud Computing is the IT platform of the future and we have built the SpatialKey architecture on top of Ec2.

It has been a while since I posted to my blog. I have been in Japan for the last two weeks attending Japan Max and working with our MMKK office providing training for our Japan distributors.  It was a great trip and I worked with some of the nicest people I have ever met.  The conference was a great success and well attended. I presented on Securing ColdFusion Applications and manned the support desk answering questions. I also had the pleasure of attending a JCFUG meeting. John Dowdell, Ben Forta and myself handled questions from the group and a lot of positve comments were brought forth.  You can view all of the pictures from the event here.

I will work on posting more items in the future. I have been doing a lot of work on Flex so look for more on that topic.


Mind if I swipe some of your pics for my site? :-)

Ben, sure thing take whatever you want

I found cf_accelerate while looking to improve performance for our site running cf5. but I got the following error:

Cannot lock application scope CFLock cannot be used to lock the application or session shared scopes without these scopes being established through the use of the CFApplication tag. You must use CFApplication and specify an application name to use the application scope. If you want to use the session scope you need to enable session management as well. Application and/or Session variables must also be enabled in the ColdFusion Administrator.

The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFLOCK), occupying document position (168:5) to (168:60) in the template file C:\CFusion\CustomTags\accelerate.cfm.
