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.

Would you like to play the Tree on a Truck game?
Tue, Nov 25th 2014 11:42a   David Leedy
It’s the time of year again. Every year my family plays a simple game to get into the holiday spirit.  It’s competitive and borderline cut-throat at times but at the core it’s simple.  We count the number of Christmas Trees that we see on cars and trucks.  By count I mean the first one who sees it and calls it gets a point.  And by calls it I mean the first person who shouts “TREE!” get’s that tree as a point.  It’s actually loads of fun while still [read] Keywords: xpages mobile

NotesIn9 168 – Updating Source Control for Page Controllers
Thu, Nov 13th 2014 2:58p   David Leedy
In today’s show I take a brake from the Learning XPages series and do a little demo on updating a project in source control.  So it kind of goes with the Learning XPages series but really isn’t part of it. The Learning XPages series is going on a little break while I work on a more important holiday project – but hopefully that project will turn into shows as well. As always let me know if you have any comments or questions. Thanks! [read] Keywords: notes xpages

NotesIn9 167: Learning XPages Part 8 – Working towards CRUD
Wed, Nov 12th 2014 2:26p   David Leedy
In this show I continue on to the goal of CRUD. CRUD stands for Create, Read, Update and Delete. By the end of this show we should be able to achieve all 4 actions against the Company document. I’ve not done anything to really make this app look pretty yet.  Honestly I’ve given the UI very little thought so far.  I’m trying to just focus on the core functionality at the moment so the UI stuff doesn’t distract.  I do want to better integrate Bootstrap to clean up the UI [read] Keywords: xpages

NotesIn9 166: Learning XPages Part 7 – Company Controller
Tue, Nov 11th 2014 7:12p   David Leedy
In this show I demonstrate how to setup and set using a Java “Page Controller”.  This is a technique that Jesse Gallagher came up with and I absolutely love.  Without a doubt it saved me a TON of work on a recent day job assignment.  There’s a little effort involved in setting it up but it’s so worth it in the long run.

NotesIn9 165: Learning XPages Part 6 – Forms, Views and XPages
Tue, Nov 11th 2014 6:20a   David Leedy
In this show we finally start coding.  Horaay!  I’m going to create a form and a couple views to start setting up how the data for the applicaiton will work and then I’ll go right into some Java which will act as a bridge between our application and the data that gets stored into the database itself. This show should be particularily good if you’re interested in starting to use Java with your XPages applications.

XPages and iOS8 Update #6 – The Fix is HERE!!!
Tue, Nov 4th 2014 6:15a   David Leedy
IBM has officially released an Interim FixPack to correct the Mobile Controls issue!  Horaay!  As I said in a previous blog we got this a tad early and have deployed it and that has corrected all the XPages specific issues of iOS 8 devices talking to our Mobile Controls application. Also in this fix are some other key security fixes for issues that’s been discussed heavily recently. Here’s the link.  Go get it! http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21657963 It looks lik [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm xpages application mobile security twitter

XPages and iOS8 Update #5 – GOOD NEWS!!!
Fri, Oct 31st 2014 11:30a   David Leedy
Pete Janzen just tweeted this: I’m happy to say that we’ve been testing this fix for a little while and 2 days ago put it into production.  Yay!  This does seem to fix all the known XPages / Mobile Controls / iOS 8 issues. Sadly not that our Mobile Controls app works on iOS 8 we discovered a new issue that I blogged about the other day.  But that’s strictly an Apple problem.  Nothing to do with XPages. Sounds like it’ll be available next week. Big thanks to IBM for [read] Keywords: ibm xpages apple mobile

New iOS8 and Safari problem discovered.
Fri, Oct 24th 2014 6:10a   David Leedy
First let’s be clear what I’m posting about. This is NOT an IBM or XPages issue. This is specifically iOS8 and Safari. I posted on StackOverFlow with all the details. The skinny: I have an XPages app that uses a bluetooth Opticon Scanner No problems in iOS7 and Safari. iOS8 and Safari do NOT work well with the scanner. Characters are dropped. It’s not reliable. Using Chrome on iOS8 seems to work fine. I’ve no idea why or what the issue is. I posted on StackOverFlow and i [read] Keywords: ibm xpages apple bug mobile

NotesIn9 164: Learning XPages Part 5 – Application Properties
Thu, Oct 23rd 2014 6:41a   David Leedy
In this show we actually go into Designer and create a new database that we’re going to be working with for our application and I have a little discussion on some of the application properties that are useful for XPages Developement. Some Notes: This show is I believe the first in the new larger Full HD resolution of 1980×1020. This will let me get more on the screen but might be harder to see if you typically use a smaller device. Please let me know how this size works for you.

NotesIn9 163: Learning XPages Part 4 – Access Control Lists
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 6:12p   David Leedy
In this show I gave a brief introduction to Database properties and most importantly to Access Control lists for the database. There’s nothing really* here for the experienced Notes developer but if you’re new to the platform you might find the talk on the Access Control lists interesting. * Well there might be one little thing.
