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 PDF Edition: Using Resource Bundles to store config information in XPages
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 2:46p   David Leedy
I’m really excited to have a NEW contributor today.  Please welcome Dan Soares to the show!  Well kinds of at least.  I’ve been trying to get him on for a LONG time and while I’ve yet to get a video I have received from him a great article and sample database on using resource bundles in XPages. Thanks Dan! P.S. If your company blocks videos either from this site or YouTube, please print this article out on the company printer, read it on company time and have a little chu [read] Keywords: xpages application database

In this show I demonstrate how to build some XPages custom controls to make a Bootstrap ProgressBar and stacked ProgressBar. I also mention Daniel Friedrich’s blog at http://xpagesandme.wordpress.com/.  I highly recommend you check that out. [read] Keywords: notes xpages

Shockingly I just did some cool CSS!
Thu, Aug 7th 2014 11:23a   David Leedy
Let’s face it…  I suck at CSS…  You know it.  I know it.  My dog knows it.  However with the magic that is StackOverFlow I just did some useful CSS that I wanted to share. In an app I wanted to have 3 buttons in a row.  Since this is an iPad app I wanted to make the buttons myself so the tab zone is bigger.  I wanted to put some space in between the buttons so I first had: margin-right: 15px; This got annoying because the last button didn’t need to have that margin [read] Keywords: css

NotesIn9 150: Announcing fileVault for XPages
Sat, Aug 2nd 2014 1:18p   David Leedy
This is a different show today.  I’m going to be speaking at MWLug at the end of August.  In this show I’m going to do a little demo of what I intended to present at MWLug.  I’m not going to tell you HOW to do it yet, you’ll need to come to see that.  Or wait for it to hit a future NotesIn9. In addition to the commercial, I’ve taken a small clip from my show 100 (which ran WAY too long).  In this clip I give suggestions on how to get more involved in the XPages [read] Keywords: notes xpages community

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

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
