Notes Database Performance Tip: Disable Unread Marks
Thu, Dec 10th 2015 9:29a   John Jardin
A Quick Summary of this Post Unread Marks are enabled by default when creating a new Notes Database. In most cases, especially for applications used by multiple users, unread marks are not required and has a significant performance cost when the Notes database grows in size. To disable Unread Marks: Right-click on your Notes database and select “Application -> Properties“ Click on the last tab Check the option “Don’t Maintain Unread Marks“ Compact the Notes da

What’s Happening to the Stability of Software!!!
Mon, Nov 9th 2015 6:36a   John Jardin
I’ve reached a point where I am amazed at the overall lack of quality and stability of software being released nowadays. I know it’s not just me who thinks but but it seems such a common trend that I had to blog about it and have my say. On Apple’s side I am disgusted!! I’ve never witnessed so many bugs (in the last 2 years) as I have in total since the 1st iPod came out. What happened to Quality? What happened to Perfection? The very values I would constantly boasted of

User Group Update: A rename & an identity. We’re getting there!
Thu, Sep 17th 2015 11:00a   John Jardin
Things are getting exciting!!! We have renamed our local User Group and finally have some branding. SALUG is now AfriTUG We thought long and hard about this one, but it was ultimately decided that we needed a name that encompasses not just South Africa, but Africa as a whole. Also thanks to IBM Bluemix, we don’t want the focus of the User Group only on Enterprise Social Software (aka XPages, Connections, etc.), but also on the exciting technologies that Bluemix offers. So without any fu

Tue, Sep 15th 2015 1:00a   John Jardin
In this video I show you how to eliminate unnecessary Event Listeners in your Appcelerator Mobile App by making use of the Bubble Parent property. This is a great way to increase performance and responsiveness in your mobile app, especially when it requires some advanced processes. The video below demonstrates the the Bubble Parent technique when using Text Fields inside Table View Rows for an iOS app. I’m sure you’ll immediately understand how you can apply it elsewhere in your mob

Android Tip: Enable Keyboard for your apps in Genymotion
Mon, Aug 24th 2015 11:27a   John Jardin
This is a quick tip on how to enable the simulator keyboard when running your apps using Genymotion. You might find that when running your mobile app in Genymotion, the simulator’s keyboard doesn’t display when focusing on an input field. The reason for this is because, by default, Genymotion has the input control set to your laptop/desktop’s hardware keyboard. To enable the simulator’s keyboard, do the following: Launch Genymotion On the device profile, click on the Set

IBM Domino Tip: Pass HTML to RichTextItem without using MIMEEntity
Thu, Aug 20th 2015 9:02a   John Jardin
This is a quick tip on how to include HTML when populating a RichTextItem object without using MIMEEntity in IBM Notes/Domino. First some venting It’s amazing how certain easter egg features have been available in the Domino Object Model since release 5, that I’ve managed to keep missing, yet constantly required. This morning I happened to stumble across one of them. For the longest time, whenever I needed to send out a mail programatically via code that needed even the slightest bi
