About last night…
David Leedy    

I figured I’d blog this just to make it easier to tell the story..

So last night my family and I went over to by brothers for dinner. Near the end of the evening I ended up twisting my ankle pretty bad. This sent a jolt through me which made me dizzy and nauseous. After sitting for a couple minutes I decided to head over to the kitchen to get a little water. I remember cupping my hands under the sick to get water. Next thing I knew I was on the floor. My head was in my wifes lap people were staring at me and there was a pool of blood next to me.

Apparently I passed out while at the sink. When I hit the floor I cut my chin pretty bad. An ambulance was called and got me to the hospital. X-Rays of ankle.. CAT scan of head… blood tests. Heart tests… Maybe some other stuff.. not sure.. 8 stitches to close my 2 inch cut. Kinda felt like a hockey player that lost a fight against Dave Shultz really. :-)

I guess there’s some kind of vasavagal nerve in the body. When it gets stressed it cuts off blood to the brain. This is what causes some people to pass out from the site of blood. While I don’t have that problem in my case it seems that if I get a quick / sharp pain… This nerve is going to take me down. This happened twice before – where I got quick really bad injuries though I didn’t pass out those times probably because I didn’t try to get up so soon as I did last night. I guess standing with that kind of lightheadedness doesn’t go well together.

Here’s an interesting article on this nerve. Again – I don’t pass out from blood at least I don’t think so. Just quick intense pain I guess. Weird….

Anyway – I’m still a bit shaken up but doing much better then last night.

NotesIn9 149: Database Resources and Design Definition
Tue, Jul 29th 2014 6:55a   David Leedy
In this show IBM Champion and everyone’s second favorite Doctor returns to NotesIn9.  That’s right, Dr. Marky Roden is in the house with a GREAT tip on ways to speed up Domino Designer by using Design Definition to better control your database resources. We last saw the good Doctor back on September 13th, 2012, Episode 74,  talking about using jQuery. Don’t miss todays demo.  You never know if he’ll disappear for another 684 days again. === Also yesterday I mentioned t [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes database

NotesIn9 148: Getting XPages to talk to your phone
Mon, Jul 28th 2014 6:12a   David Leedy
Today we get another great contributor in the form of Oliver Busse. His website is oliverbusse.com.  He’s going to do a really neat demo of how to intergrate XPages with Pushover.net to send messages to a phone that has the PushOver App installed. I think that it’s always nice to see how to mix XPages with other services. [read] Keywords: xpages

NotesIn9 Celebrates 5 years of ScreenCasting and ALMOST 150 Episodes
Sun, Jul 27th 2014 7:03p   David Leedy
On July 11, 2009 I uploaded the first ever NotesIn9 to YouTube.  The topic was this brand new concept in XPages called “Repeat Controls”. 5 years and 260,000ish downloads later and with the help if MANY people I’ve published 147 episodes so far and WILL hit 150 this week, and maybe even more. Not too shabby for a little show based mostly on XPages I think. As always I want to thank all the contributors to the show.  Without them I could never have gotten this far.

NotesIn9 147: Using dGrowl with XPages
Tue, Jul 22nd 2014 6:30a   David Leedy
In this show Brad Balassaitis returns to Ni9 to give us some great instruction on how to start using the “dGrowl” project with our XPages applications.  This is a tool that lets you popup messages back to the user. It’s a somewhat common effect and I really really like it.  Actually before I got this demo from him I was attempting to do something similar inside Bootstrap4XPages and now I might try and switch to dGrowl for the additional features. In addition to using dGrowl t [read] Keywords: notes xpages applications dojo

NotesIn9 146: Going Mobile with Bootstrap
Tue, Jul 8th 2014 11:14a   David Leedy
In this show, we get another great new contributor joining the NotesIn9 family.  Please welcome Sean P McManus to the show. His blog is: http://spmcmanus.net  I’m really excited to get Sean on as he gives us a great demo on using Bootstrap for an XPages mobile focused application. Sean manually added Bootstrap to his application.  Another option is to use a great project on OpenNTF to do this for you via an update site. http://bootstrap4xpages.openntf.org/ http://bootstrap4xpages.com/ A [read] Keywords: notes xpages application java mobile openntf

NotesIn9 145: Simple Feedback in XPages
Thu, May 29th 2014 4:57p   David Leedy
This is the last show I have from Tim Tripcony.  This is probably the simpliest demo he’s done for Ni9 but no less important.  It’s a demo of a way to return a message to a user based on an action. Tim actually gave me this demo maybe a year ago and I just totally forgot about it and I assume he then did as well. While I hate the thought of forgetting about it I think it makes this show a little special.  I was so happy to discover it when I went through our shared dropbox. #cod [read] Keywords: xpages

A conversation with my Son
Tue, May 27th 2014 7:12a   David Leedy
When I did the Java vs. JavaScript through down I included my son in the video for comedic effect. He got a good response so I thought I’d give you a snippet of a conversation from this weekend. Me: “Tell the girls we are having popcorn and ice cream for dinner” Matt: “that is the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard.” Me: “you think it’s a stupid idea?” Matt: “I mean, not literally..I think it’s a great idea” That’s how [read] Keywords: notes java javascript

NotesIn9 144: OAuth for Domino Walkthrough
Tue, May 27th 2014 6:02a   David Leedy
In this show Tim Tripcony explains how to get your Domino server to PROVIDE OAuth credentials and services. #codefortim Note: This show is a odd resolution because Tim sent me his demo at a bigger size then normal.  Because of this I’m not sure if it will play on mobile devices.

NotesIn9 143: Component vs Value binding in XPages
Thu, May 22nd 2014 6:42a   David Leedy
In this show Tim Tripcony explains that while we’ve typically been binding to a value all this time, it’s possible to bind to a component inside your XPages Development. This show was originally published elsewhere and I basically grabbed this to try and improve the visibility and get Tim’s information as much exposure as possible. #codefortim [read] Keywords: xpages development

Tim explains JSON-RPC #codefortim
Wed, May 21st 2014 5:55a   David Leedy
First I want to highlight OpenNTF’s recent post regarding Tim’s projects.  Let me simply say that I think the #codefortim idea is brilliant. Pure genius and so appropriate.  Tim shared.  Period. I just read that post like 5 minutes ago so I’m going to let it sink in before I talk any more about it. Which brings us to the topic of today.  This email exchange I’m going to post was forwarded to me by my friend Dan.  He asked Tim a question and as usual got a great resp [read] Keywords: xpages ajax application dojo email exchange exchange java javascript openntf server sql
