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 160: Learning XPages Part 1 – Installing Designer
Sun, Oct 19th 2014 7:18p   David Leedy
This show beings my great experiment. I’ve wanted to do this for a couple of years actually. I’m going to ATTEMPT to start from scratch and build an XPages Application. I’m going to assume that the viewer has little to no knowledge of Domino Development.  I’ve gotten a bunch of emails from people brand new to the platform so the beginning shows are kinda geared for them. I’m really trying to start from square one. When I get into the Application build – which [read] Keywords: domino xpages application development java openntf

Email Do’s and Don’ts
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 7:42p   David Leedy
I’ve been getting a lot more emails from NotesIn9 viewers lately. Many are asking for XPages help with a particular problem. While I prefer questions unrelated to Ni9 to be asked on StackOverFlow.com with the tag “xpages”, just so the question and answer is public and can therefore benefit more people, I’m always happy to get the email and will certainly try and help where I can.  I can’t always.  But I will try.  Some of the emails say something like “I do [read] Keywords: notes xpages community email

NotesIn9 158: Intro to the Frostillicus Framework
Fri, Oct 10th 2014 8:54a   David Leedy
In this show Jesse Gallagher returns to give us an introduction to this amazing Framework he’s created to try and improve the XPages coding experience. I can’t say that I totally “get it” yet BUT it looks VERY interesting. I have so far taken the “controller” piece from the framework and I’m successfully using that in my applications and I’ll be featuring that on NotesIn9 very soon. It’s really improved how I create my applications. [read] Keywords: xpages applications

NotesIn9 157: Dabbling in Bootstrap and Font Awesome
Tue, Oct 7th 2014 1:25p   David Leedy
In this show Dan Friedrich, a brand new contributor joins the Hackathon! He’s a customer (like me!) that’s been doing a lot with XPages. He’s going to talk about using Bootstrap and Font Awesome in your XPages applications. Before the demo I take a little time to update the status of the XPages Mobile Controls and iOS8 issues as well as some overall personal opinions on the Mobile Controls themselves. The demo starts around the 10:00 if you want to skip over my opinion stuff. [read] Keywords: notes xpages applications mobile

XPages and iOS8 Situation Update 2 – Second Fix
Fri, Sep 26th 2014 12:32p   David Leedy
Ok lets update the situation.  As far as I know we started with 3 problems regarding XPages and iOS8 . 1. Uploading photos to a web app doesn’t work. 2. XPages Mobile Controls don’t work 3. An Edit box with Typehead / drop down selection doesn’t work. In my last post I mentioned that Domino 9.0.1 FixPack 2 corrects issue #3. Now I can report that iOS 8.0.2 corrects issue #1.  In testing I was able to upload a photo again where I could not with 8.0.0.  Technically it was cor [read] Keywords: domino ibm xpages apple applications dojo mobile

Wed, Sep 24th 2014 11:17a   David Leedy
It’s time. It’s time for me to get off my duff a little bit and try and “kick this up a notch”. It’s time for YOU who are reading this post to get a little more involved and “Join the Conversation” To me a Hackathon is an event were people come together to contribute small pieces to complete a bigger puzzle. I’ve been thinking of this ever since someone came up with the #CodeForTim hashtag.  When we lost Tim, I changed the motto of NotesIn9 to “Learn, Code, Share” to [read] Keywords: xpages email

XPages and iOS8 Situation Update 2 – First Fix
Tue, Sep 23rd 2014 7:13a   David Leedy
Just to quickly recap the 3 problems that I know about. 1. Uploading photos to a web app doesn’t work. 2. XPages Mobile Controls don’t work 3. An Edit box with Typehead / drop down selection doesn’t work. Problem 1 is clearly in Apple’s court.  Hopefully that will get fixed in 8.0.1 Problem 2 is being investigated by IBM as we speak.  That’s all I know about that.  I have heard from others that Mobile controls will KINDA work if when tapping you hold your fing [read] Keywords: ibm xpages apple dojo mobile
