A new version of the "LotusScript Gold Collection" toolkit is available on openntf.org. It includes the much requested NotesGroupManager library which used to be in the Lotus Sandbox, and a way to call Notes C API functions without having to check which OS you're using before each call. The latter might not work on all servers, but the problem has been reported to the LotusScript team in development. It works great on all clients (and you could easily make a server version, it's just not as efficient as you must load the classes for all supported OS instead of using dynamic loading).
And, if you're interested in the doing of my alter ego, Tyler Tork, you can read a Halloween tale on my other blog (link on right).

So far, the only difference that's mattered to me is that the [FileExit] command doesn't work in NBP, causing an error dialog if you try it. %REM Function IsNotesBrowserPlugin Description: Return TRUE if we're running in the Notes browser plugin. %END REM Function IsNotesBrowserPlugin As Boolean Dim session As New NotesSession [read] Keywords: ldd
Are Apple customers allowed to marry non-Apple users?
Mon, Jan 21st 2013 2:00p Andre Guirard It's been an ordeal. I have an Android smartphone and use Gmail's calendar. My wife has an iPhone. You'd think it would be simple to have a shared calendar -- this is, after all, the future. As it turns out, it is possible, but the arduous process has made me wonder whether Apple considers it a form of apostasy for their customers to associate with someone who doesn't use their products. We had two alternatives to start with: we could create our shared calendar in Gmail or iCloud. No prefere [read] Keywords: ibm
