XPages - Suggestion and a Tip for Newbies on Repeat Controls
   

I've created a two new categories on my blog called "XPages Newbie Tips" and "XPages Feedback". In posts under either of these categories, but especially "Newbie Tips" my goal is to be positive rather than my usual bitching about the product. The idea for the newbie tips is that as I'm digging into serious development with XPages, I'm coming across things that would really have helped me if I knew them at the start. I plan to make these newbie tips into blog entries, and then as I get a good solid list of t.....

Automatic Spam Report to Provider Agent
Wed, Oct 29th 2014 7:39a   Andrew Pollack
This morning Andy Donaldson was asking on FB for code that turned a spam email into an EML attachment for reporting to anti-spam providers. I wrote this a while back for exactly that purpose. Rather than an attachment, this just creates an email to the anti-spam provider that contains the original spam message including all of it's header information and encoded mime. Essentially, if you took the body of what I'm sending and saved it as a text document with a .EML extension it would be the sam [read] Keywords: agent lotus email

Quick update on the Domino SSL v3 "POODLE" , TLS, and SHA-2 issues -- Good news
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 9:22a   Andrew Pollack
I've been more than a little sidetracked on some family things for the last week, but my good friend Gab Davis forwarded me these two links today that should address these critical issues. They're long overdue already, and will be another couple of weeks, but let's be glad to be getting them.

Summary Recommendation for dealing with the POODLE SSLv3 Vulnerability on Domino servers
Thu, Oct 16th 2014 9:43a   Andrew Pollack
Rather than repeat what everyone else is writing about POODLE today, I want to give Domino server administrators a few quick items as it relates to them. In Brief -- and based on what I've been able to quickly learn: IS Domino affected? Yes. All Domino servers that are accepting direct HTTPS connections are impacted. THIS MEANS ALL TRAVELER SERVERS AS WELL. What is the risk to my server or data? The most immediate risk is access to user data and user impersonation. POODLE is the type of attack [read] Keywords: connections domino traveler server

For my Boston area friends in the Notes and Domino community, I'm speaking tonight at the ICU One (aka NE Notes Users Group) meeting in Cambridge. Come say hi. https://www.socialbizug.org/communities/service/html/communityview?communityUuid=784f8e78-2f09-4ae8-b2f5-324faed6413f#fullpageWidgetId=W2ffed7cac839_4390_981d_b7491ef25438&eventInstUuid=c8a488ce-e4b2-410a-b192-36254d01d6b2.....

These are the presentations I gave at AdminCamp 2014 Extreme Domino HTTP Configuration The HTTP task is more powerful and complex than it looks. We`ll go through the configuration and show you how to make your server respond just the way you want. We`ll talk about virtual web sites, multi-homing, URL redirection, headers, and path substitution. Learn how you can use more than one SSL certificate on the same server.

IBM Domino Servers STILL don't support SSL SHA-2 Certificates - and about to be a PROBLEM
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 9:20a   Andrew Pollack
I haven't blogged about anything, much less an IBM Domino issue in quite some time, but as Mooney pointed out today, this one is moving quickly toward being critical. Read the article, then call your IBM sales rep and start demanding they update to include SHA-2 SSL support immediately. The only people who can get this done, are big IBM Domino customers. Since this doesn't have a direct net positive effect on EPS (Earnings Per Share) for 2016, nothing is going to get done on it as long as they [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus

Changing what I do at the Fire Department
Sun, Feb 9th 2014 9:40a   Andrew Pollack
So, here’s a bit of a change. A couple of weeks ago I let the chief know that it was time for me to step down as the Lieutenant of our Engine 1. Once a replacement is chosen, I’ll still be a firefighter but won’t be an officer any longer. There are a number of reasons for this, but the best explanation I can give is that it is time to let someone else grow into that role and make their own contribution, while at the same time I’ve got plenty of other things going on that keep me from put [read] Keywords:

Sochi Olympics Pub Chat - Now Open
Thu, Feb 6th 2014 2:46p   Andrew Pollack
As in years past, I've created a group Skype chat room for anyone who wants to use it while watching the Olympics. We've had fun with this in the past, as long as nobody takes it too seriously. Here's a link: skype:?chat&blob=1-XgYKMLG_kK5fqEsq4t4Jd4GLxHZxbMIqSYtCRXS9DiF5WNjBtuljOtcSDqaGdkOv5mX6paJQSuNuI A few recommendations: 1. Definitely use the skype command '/alertsoff' so when you're not watching you won't get bugged by the rest of us. Don't bother trying to keep up or going ba [read] Keywords: skype

Question for mobile app developers - what development platform do you recommend?
Wed, Feb 5th 2014 12:20p   Andrew Pollack
I've got a need to build a couple of mobile apps, and I'm looking for platform recommendations. Here are the things that are important to me: 1. I prefer a true, compiled app -- not a wrapper around a web page, and not a PaaS (Platform as a Service) 2. I'd like to develop once and deploy on both Android and IOS, but but that's not a show stopper. The more I can share between the two the better though. 3. I'd like to have built in support for web services -- so that if I drop some WSDL on th [read] Keywords: development mobile
