Data mining thought for the day
Wed, Dec 16th 2015 9:28a   Ben Langhinrichs
In between dealing with the horror that is Internet Explorer 9, I am working on a presentation on data mining in Notes rich text. With that in, here is my data mining thought for the day: There is implicit as well as explicit data and meta data. Explicit is there to be read, implicit is there to be discerned. Explicit data is the content (e.g., field in document; audio of phone call). Explicit meta data is the context (e.g., db and views where document is found; identity of callers and time

AppsFidelity 3.3 released
Thu, Nov 19th 2015 1:58p   Ben Langhinrichs
It's been a long time coming, but we have released Version 3.3 of AppsFidelity. Along with numerous rendering tweaks, the main features/fixes are: Better handling of attachments when deleted via iconFont face and size control of attachment icons (important for those using languages which don't render with standard 10pt Arial)Better handling of image sizes (reading from image data when not specified or partially specified, plus detection of errant size data)Native PNG support (while PNG images

Back in April of 2008, I wrote a blog post called Help make sure PNG is stored natively in 8.5. The issue then, and still now in Notes 9.0.1, is that while Notes rich text stores and renders PNG graphics perfectly well, when a user actually imports a PNG graphic from the Notes client, it is converted and saved as a JPEG file. Aside from other more minor issues, this means that transparency is lost, thus wrecking many images. As a simple example, consider this logo as it appears above converted t

Office 365 for email with Notes and Domino infrastructure
Wed, Nov 11th 2015 12:06p   Ben Langhinrichs
For a variety of reasons, many companies are moving or have moved to Office 365, and with it the Outlook mail client. But their Notes/Domino infrastructure doesn't disappear or their applications magically migrate with them. For that reason, we have seen a number of our Midas and AppsFidelity customers start to use CoexLinks Fidelity to handle the mail that goes out to Outlook. Not that we care much where it is going, but Outlook (both web and desktop), Gmail, Android and iOS are primary client

Why we need a little Assist
Wed, Oct 21st 2015 10:28a   Ben Langhinrichs
Users of our AppsFidelity and Midas products will notice something new the next time we release a version (very soon). Along with each there will be an additional Assist DLL/Library. For example, along with the AppsFidelity software there will be either an AppsFidelityAssist32.dll (Windows 32-bit), AppsFidelityAssist64.dll (Windows 64-bit) or AppsFidelity32.so (Linux). It seems likely that we will introduce an AIX version again, so when we do, it will have its own Assist library. The reason fo

I thought it might be useful to paraphrase a couple of the recent evaluation requests for Midas with the solutions provided. As new evaluation requests come in, I may post more of these. One thing I will try to highlight is when there are existing blog posts which address the problem.

On drugs
Mon, Oct 12th 2015 2:07p   Ben Langhinrichs
I received an email newsletter from IBM today. You may have as well. I thought I'd take the opportunity to show how even a lightly formatted email such as this can get altered when it is sent to a customer from the Notes environment. Why not try CoexLinks Fidelity for yourself and see how your company can avoid these problems? (For those who don't know, this is a parody of This is your brain on drugs.) This is your email. This is your email on drugs(or rather, as rendered by Domino 9.0.1

There are three things we focus with CoexLinks Fidelity: Fidelity (does it arrive looking the way it looked when it was sent?)Accuracy (is all the information still present and unchanged?)Consistency (does it look the same no matter how it is sent?) If you are interested in seeing for yourself, let me know and I can set up a session where I show you how each of the three impacts your IBM Notes/Domino email, whether it is read by an internal user (perhaps your boss) on a mobile device or via iN

MWLUG presentation available
Wed, Aug 19th 2015 11:01p   Ben Langhinrichs
It is a special kind of challenge to do a session on the Notes C API, although it probably helped to have the sign outside the door say AD104 and not clue people in first. Remarkably, very few people left during the session. I tried to keep it light and fun, and people laughed and went along with my extended relationship metaphor. You can find the slides on my MWLUG2015 page, along with the source code and make files for the samples. To give you a feel for the session, here is a slide I added at
