View Conference in DC, OpenSocial Presentation (Thursday, Apr 19)
Julian Robichaux    

If you haven't already registered for the AdminDev2012 conference in Washington, DC, you only have two more days before the $100 off early registration discount is gone. They've already posted the session list, and they've got some great topics (and great speakers) lined up.

I'll be delivering two sessions there: Java debugging, and an introduction to OpenSocial for developers. I'm really looking forward to both sessions, but especially the OpenSocial one. I did a lot of research and work to try to nail down not just the "hows" but also the "whys" on that topic.

I have to admit, in the past when I've seen demos of gadgets and activity streams and embedded experiences, I just didn't get it. What I saw kind of looked like... an email inbox. Sure, there were embedded videos or buttons or links to collaborative documents or whatever, but in the end it didn't seem to be much different than a well-crafted HTML email or an RSS feed.

After spending a lot of time working with OpenSocial gadgets and the Shindig server, I have a much better understanding and appreciation of what's going on, and how it's different, and why it's useful. I feel good about the fact that my presentation will give the technical knowledge about how to get started with this stuff; I'm very curious to see if I'll also be able to explain why you should use it.

Ode To My Maglite (Tuesday, Nov 19)
Tue, Nov 19th 2013 8:40p   Julian Robichaux
This is my Maglite. It turned 20 years old today. I know that because I emailed the serial number to Maglite support and asked them when it was made. They look up the number in their database and give you the date of manufacture. 11/19/1993. That's my big guy's birthdate. A few things about this. First, I don't have any other electronic devices anywhere near this old that are still in regular use. I do have some clothes that old that might get worn occasionally (don't judge), probably s [read] Keywords: database

Domino Designer JVM Settings: A Little Deeper (Friday, Aug 30)
Fri, Aug 30th 2013 6:00a   Julian Robichaux
Every user of Domino Designer in Eclipse (aka DDE, aka Domino Designer 8.5+) probably already knows how to adjust their JVM settings to give DDE more memory. Andrew Pollack did a nice writeup on it way back in 2008, and there's now an IBM technote on the subject. But, like most things, it's good to delve a little deeper into the topic so you can really understand what's going on. Here are the IBM suggested settings and what they mean: vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx1024mMaximum Java heap size (memory use [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm lotus notes notes client application eclipse java properties workspace

Mud Run Over, Huge Thanks (Wednesday, Jun 5)
Wed, Jun 5th 2013 5:10p   Julian Robichaux
Before anything else, I want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported me in the mud run by donating to the Myelin Foundation and The Art of Curing Matt. I don't have any official numbers, but I do know that over $1,000 was donated in under 4 days, and that is incredible. You are an amazing and generous community. Next, I am happy to announce that Chris Miller wins the "Guess The Mud Run Time" prize. He will be receiving a very cool piece of art by Matt Reimer himself: a drawing dep [read] Keywords: community

Mud Run Training Day 3: The Outfit (Friday, May 31)
Fri, May 31st 2013 12:30p   Julian Robichaux
Today is the final day of mud run training (the race is tomorrow, did you sponsor me yet?). Upon recovering from yesterday's mud-in-the-face bit, I decided it would be better to hold off on any more intentional dirtiness before the race. I have switched metaphorical tactics from "wading slowly into the pool" to "jumping off the diving board". Tomorrow will be the dive. So today I have been picking out clothes for the race. Here's what I came up with so far: The rationale is: Old run [read] Keywords:

Mud Run Training Day 2: Mud In Yer Eye (Thursday, May 30)
Thu, May 30th 2013 1:50p   Julian Robichaux
As part of today's mud run training (and further incentive for you to sponsor me), I increased my dirt-tolerance quotient by allowing my kids to throw mud at my face. I apologize for the slightly large size of the animated gif (I usually try to keep graphics much smaller than that). I just thought it might have a bit more impact that way. Plus, animated gifs are all the rage this year, aren't they? The kids originally thought that they were allowed to throw the entire bucket of mud on [read] Keywords:

Mud Run Training: Day 1 of 3 (Wednesday, May 29)
Wed, May 29th 2013 10:20a   Julian Robichaux
First off: huge thanks to those of you who have sponsored me already. If you haven't donated yet, please take a quick look at my Sponsor Me in a Mud Run page to learn about the great cause I am helping to raise money for, and please consider even a small donation. Every dollar helps! As part of my last-minute training for this event, I will practice getting dirty a little more and a little more each day. Here is day 1: Hey, you gotta start somewhere. Georgia red clay is very... mushy. It i [read] Keywords:

Help Me Get Muddied Up (Tuesday, May 28)
Tue, May 28th 2013 1:30p   Julian Robichaux
Short version: please help me raise money for The Art of Curing Matt. You can sponsor me in a mud run this weekend! Just go to the donation page and follow the instructions. If you have the closest guess to my actual finishing time in the race, you'll win a prize! I don't know what the prize is yet, it might be something silly... your suggestions are welcome in the comments. Longer version: I know that a lot of people have been asking for donations for various charities recently -- people in [read] Keywords: lotus community

IMPORTANT: OpenLog and Disabling Lsi_Info (Friday, Mar 15)
Fri, Mar 15th 2013 7:20a   Julian Robichaux
This is something that has come up a few times in the past, and I (and other people) have advised about it before, but it certainly bears repeating: If you are using OpenLog with LotusScript on a Domino server, please set NoLSIStackTrace=True This is a global variable that determines whether or not the OpenLog code will use Lsi_info(14) to log LotusScript stack traces. IBM has found that the Lsi_Info function (which is part of the LotusScript language) can cause serious problems on the Domin [read] Keywords: agent domino ibm lotusscript notes notes client script library database openntf server

Determining Your Sametime Client ID (Thursday, Dec 20)
Thu, Dec 20th 2012 1:50p   Julian Robichaux
Upon setting up my Notes 9 Beta client and trying to connect to my test Sametime server, I got this message: Since I am my own system administrator, I contacted myself. This led to some heated internal discussions, followed by the inevitable Google search. Apparently this is a fairly well-known message to real-life Sametime admins and the usual remedy is to configure the VPS_ALLOWED_LOGIN_TYPES variable in the server's sametime.ini file using the appropriate Sametime Client ID.

Mac Font Foibles On Chrome (Saturday, Sep 29)
Sat, Sep 29th 2012 8:00a   Julian Robichaux
This has been a week of updates to my MacBook. I bought an SSD drive to replace my original (4 year old) hard drive, which meant that I had to finally update to OSX Lion to get TRIM support. This also meant that I got around to all sorts of minor software updates that I've been holding off on, since everything on my Mac has always worked just fine and I saw no need to update software that already worked. Don't mess with a good thing and all that. One bit of weirdness I noticed after everythin [read] Keywords: application applications bug css email firefox google mac macbook
