Free services vs Do It Yourself AKA New Skool web sites vs Old School

Ever wonder if the New Skool way of web site building is taking over the web?  There are many services that offer free (or low cost) instant web sites, with "Drag and Drop" functionality, "Does everything" and has you up and running in minutes!

The other side, the Old School way, of web site building requires some more time, a little more technical know how, and some real thought process.

Which is right for you?

Google Apps - Great services with some limitations

I am beginning to really like Google Apps.  I can manage e-mail accounts, contact, groups, documents, calendars, and use 200+ other Google app applications.  There are a few limitations and I am not happy with support.  Enough of the benefits outweigh the downfalls.

New Mura update broke my custom cfm pages!

But that is ok, I learned something new!
I don't know when the change came about, but I updated to the latest version 5.4.4599 and found that there is either a new file or a large change.  The file in question is:
[Site Directory]/includes/Application.cfc
I run a custom banner page so I can have those randomly generated images that you see above. Read more to find out the details and the little addition to get your pages running again and not showing Access Restricted.
