flex - How can I pass the string "Null" through wsdl (SOAP) from AS3 to ColdFusion web service without receiving a "missing parameter error"? - Stack Overflow

flex - How can I pass the string "Null" through wsdl (SOAP) from AS3 to ColdFusion web service without receiving a "missing parameter error"? - Stack Overflow: "We have an employee whose last name is Null. He kills our employee lookup app when his last name is used as the search term (which happens to be quite often now). The error received (thanks Fiddler!) is

 
   soapenv:Server.userException
   coldfusion.xml.rpc.CFCInvocationException: [coldfusion.runtime.MissingArgumentException : The SEARCHSTRING parameter to the getFacultyNames function is required but was not passed in.]
Cute, huh?

The parameter's type is string. Using WSDL (SOAP). Flex 3.5 Actionscript 3 ColdFusion 8

Note that the error DOES NOT occur when calling the webservice as an object from a coldfusion page."

Martin Doms : Splines and curves part I – Bézier Curves

Martin Doms : Splines and curves part I – Bézier Curves: "Bézier curves
The first curve we will investigate is the infamous Bezier curve. It should be noted that the Bezier curve is not, in fact, a spline, but it’s still a useful starting point. We will start with an example, and delve into some details of how this curve works and why. Note that the interactive examples in this article use the HTML5 canvas element so may not work correctly on older browsers and some mobile devices. Hover your mouse over the curve to see how it is constructed."

A geek with a hat » Google sent me a “what to know in on-site interviews” email. Here it is.: "You need to know Big-O complexity analysis really well → it’s OK to quickly come up with a brute force solution, but that’s never going to be the answer → always look for an O(n*logn) solution or ideally a linear one."

WebAIM: Blog - History of the browser user-agent string

WebAIM: Blog - History of the browser user-agent string: "And Apple built Safari, and used KHTML, but added many features, and forked the project, and called it WebKit, but wanted pages written for KHTML, and so Safari called itself Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/85.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/85.5, and it got worse."

Modern Web Development

Modern Web Development: "From a DOM-debugging perspective, one of the cooler features of the console is its integration with the Elements panel (which we’ll discuss in the next section). Any element that’s selected in the Elements panel can be quickly accessed using “$0”. That will reference the element and allow you to interact with it. Inversely, whenever you see a DOM node printed in the console, you can right click on it and click “Reveal in Elements Panel” to quickly find it in the DOM.
