Lotus Notes 8.5.3 on Apple Mac OSX - Where do your temp files go to, my lovely ?
   

Now I've done this a few times before, and it's cost me time ( and time costs money, darn it ).

So, here's the situation - one of my colleagues sends me an email, with an attached document ( a Microsoft Word .DOC file, if it matters ! ). Now I know what you're going to say …. why oh why oh why did he send me an attachment ? :-p

Anyway, I double-click on the attachment, and automatically open it up in Lotus Symphony 8.01 which is nice.

I edit the document, and then save it ( to a new filename, of course ), without really focusing on the WHERE e.g. into which folder I'm saving it.

So now I need to send my revised document back to my colleague - via LotusLive, as I just simply refuse to send email attachments :-)

Ah, right, now where did I put the file ?

When you open a file from within a Notes message, it stores it in a temporary location of, apparently, it's own making.

Ordinarily, on the Mac, I'd simply use Spotlight ( [CMD] [Space] ) to find the file by name. Sadly, at least on my system, Spotlight doesn't index absolutely everywhere :-(

After some trial-and-error ( including creating a draft email to myself, which included a similar document attachment, and then opening it in Symphony ), I worked out that the temporary folder is ….. here: -

/private/var/folders/g_/zl9kplwd7hg2fcwh5qrpdwbh0000gn/T/TemporaryItems/notes

Now I *know* that the folder location will change from time to time e.g. perhaps with a newly opened instance of Notes, on a different machine etc. but … it'd do.

So, if I remember to read this blog post IN THE FUTURE, I'll be able to find my attachments :-)

Alternatively, perhaps I can tell Spotlight to index /private or tell Notes to store temporary files in, say, /tmp :-)

Weirdness with DNS
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 7:06a   Dave Hay
So I've not yet got the bottom of this one, but I do have a work-around. I'm trying to register my Linux box with our internal Red Hat Network server, using the rhn_register command. Whilst trying to validate that I could connect to the server, I tried this command: - wget https://rhn.linux.ibm.com/pub/bootstrap/bootstrap.sh --2014-08-20 13:34:18-- https://rhn.linux.ibm.com/pub/bootstrap/bootstrap.sh Resolving rhn.linux.ibm.com... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution. wget: unable to [read] Keywords: ibm linux mac network red hat server vmware

Running SpinRite inside DOS wrapped inside VirtualBox wrapped inside Ubuntu
Sat, Aug 16th 2014 1:05p   Dave Hay
So I'm using Steve Gibson's SpinRite hard-drive maintenance utility to check the health of the Maxtor 6YI60M0 drive that I use to boot Orac up - running Ubuntu 14.04, of course. The quirk is that SpinRite is a good ole fashioned DOS application, that I downloaded from http://grc.com as an ISO image. I then built a VirtualBox VM, booting from the ISO, with an attached virtual disk that points at the Maxtor disk ( /dev/sdb ) upon which Ubuntu is installed. So I have a DOS application running ins [read] Keywords: application mac vm ubuntu

How to Increase the VMWare Boot Screen Delay
Sat, Aug 16th 2014 12:25p   Dave Hay
Something for which I had a requirement today: - If you've wanted to try out a bootable CD or USB flash drive in a virtual machine environment, you've probably noticed that VMWare's offerings make it difficult to change the boot device. We'll show you how to change these options.

"Sixty ways to leave your lover" - or, in this case, sixty ways to remove CR from a file using vi
Fri, Aug 15th 2014 4:05a   Dave Hay
So I had a need to remove the ^M character from a text file, created using Notepad, in vi. Last time around, I simply paged through the file ( it was ~20 lines long ) and removed the character by hand. This time, for a longer file, I thought "Surely there's a better way?" and turned to Google. Guess what, there are MANY ways to do this. Here's a few: - Sometimes DOS files end up on unix systems without being converted. Files will then have those nasty ^M character at the line ending, which p [read] Keywords: applications google
