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.
Wow! Show 141 Recap/
Wed, Apr 2nd 2014 5:25p David Leedy I’ll admit I was a little nervous about the last show. It’s been a long time since I got a little “Rowdy” on the show. Maybe too long.
First I want to thank everyone for all the feedback via comments, Twitter, Facebook, etc. I think this is the first NotesIn9 that someone (Russ Maher) actually live tweeted while watching. Thanks for the kind feedback to my kids as well. We all had a good time making the show. Though I am worried they might actually want to Union [read] Keywords: domino
Mon, Mar 31st 2014 3:48p David Leedy This is a VERY DIFFERENT NotesIn9. It’s less of a normal show and more if a response to a recent blog post regarding one persons opinion on the value of Java in XPages and the Value of the UI vs the backend. Actually this show is more of a really long “rant”.
This show could absolutely suck. I pretty much broke all my rules and tried to have fun with it. I do give my thoughts on things so maybe there’s at least a little value there.

NotesIn9 139: SourceTree Deep Dive
Mon, Mar 24th 2014 6:23a David Leedy In this episode Paul Withers comes back on the show for a deeper look at using SourceTree and Git Flow. This comes from the session he did with Declan Lynch at IBM Connect. In that session they ran out of time so this should fill in some of the missing pieces that they didn’t get to cover.
I use SourceTree and HG Flow which is the Mercurial version of Git Flow in my Day Job all the time. While there are some quirks due to Designer and you do need to be careful and understand what̵ [read] Keywords: ibm
NotesIn9 138: XPages Combobox Improvements
Thu, Mar 13th 2014 1:12p David Leedy In this show I take a look at using a Combobox inside XPages. I’m going to demo how to use Java – but it’s NOT scary Java – I show you everything.
We’re going to show the user a pretty value in the combobox but get a hold of and store the key value for our use.
I’m also going to show how you can create categories inside the combobox. That’s kinda cool I think depending on your situation. [read] Keywords: xpages java
