How fascinating! On to new ventures!
Sat, Jul 16th 2016 6:59p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
This last Tuesday was my last day as Sr Application Developer at Deep South, my workplace for the last 14 years. My position was eliminated. I want to thank my manager John St Andria for the opportunity to work with him all these years. I had a great time, and I think we worked really well together. This […]

Updated MailNotification class – Now with HTML email support and web links
Mon, Jun 27th 2016 4:31p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I have updated my MailNotification class with some additional functionality I needed at work. Since our mail system now is Outlook/Exchange, and therefore the Notes doc links don’t work anymore, I am in the process of converting all my email notifications into HTML email. The doc links are now made into HTML links, pointing to a […]

MWLUG in Austin – I will be presenting again
Mon, Jun 27th 2016 12:28p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I have been selected to present at MWLUG in Austin on August 17-19. My presentation will be kind of part two of my presentation last year in Atlanta. It will focus less on the basics and go more into the fun and more advanced stuff. Kind of an extended version of my Connect 2016 presentation. The […]

Review – Ytria consoleEZ
Wed, May 25th 2016 2:39p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Recently I wrote about the great customer service I received from Ytria, and that made me realize that I haven’t been writing about one of their newer tools yet. The tool is consoleEZ, and it has actually been out for over a year. A new version was recently released. As the name indicates, it is […]

Good vs bad customer service
Fri, May 6th 2016 10:43a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Today I experienced some very good customer service, and that made me think about how important that is when it comes to how a company is seen by customers (current and prospective). What happened was that I downloaded the latest version of Ytria‘s developer tools (scanEZ, toolBarEZ, viewEZ, designPropEZ and signEZ). I been using those […]

Tue, Mar 22nd 2016 1:16p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Today (March 22) it is exactly 40 years since prinicipal photography started on Star Wars (later known as Episode IV – A New Hope) in Tunisia. When it was released in Sweden at Christmas 1977 it was released with the age restriction 11 years and older (unless accompanied by a parent, then it was from 7 years […]

IBM gave me another badge
Mon, Mar 21st 2016 5:56p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
This is actually pretty cool. The badge is using Mozilla OpenBadges technology to let people display verifiable acheivements. A digital badge is an online representation of a skill you’ve earned. Open Badges take that concept one step further, and allows you to verify your skills, interests and achievements through credible organizations. And because the system […]

IBM Connect 2016 – My impressions
Wed, Feb 17th 2016 2:27p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
When I attended IBM Connect 2015, I thought it would be the last time I got to attend the conference that for most of it’s running was called Lotusphere. I attended Lotusphere 1997 in Nice but from January 1998 I attended the conference at Walt Disney World Dolphin and Swan in Orlando every single year. After the 2015 […]

Many of you going to IBM Connect 2016 in Orlando in a just two weeks are coming from other countries. There are a few things you may want to be aware of. First of all, if you need a visa to enter the US you have hopefully already arranged that. If you are covered by the Visa Waiver […]

Connect 2016 Special Event
Wed, Jan 6th 2016 2:02p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
The traditional Lotusphere/Connect Special Event (a.k.a. Wednesday Party or Party in the Park) is back, after last years on-premises “party” which scored even lower than the infamous 2001 event at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. The event is back at the 2011 location, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmead. Since then Universal have […]

Free Code – Clean groups in Domino Directory
Wed, Dec 16th 2015 3:26p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
The other day I had to clean up the groups in our Domino Directory. Many groups still contained names of terminated users, they had not been cleaned/maintained properly. We also removed some groups over time, but some of them were still listed as members of other groups. So I wrote a small Lotuscript agent to perform this […]

Connect 2016 – People, not technology
Tue, Dec 15th 2015 11:38p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
For the 20th time I am heading to the conference previously known as Lotusphere. IBM has renamed it Connect, but to me it still is the same conference. The focus may have changed from Notes and Domino to Connections, Cloud and Mobile, but the people is largely the same: a mix of developers, administrators and […]

In the end of January it is once again time to head to Orlando for the yearly conference that for many years was known as Lotusphere. For the last few years it have been renamed IBM Connect (as well as ConnectED in 2014), and last year most people (including me) thought that 2015 was the end […]

Calling a Notes web agent from another server using JSONP
Fri, Nov 6th 2015 1:29p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
In my MWLUG presentation (as well as in a couple of entries on this blog) I talk about how you can access Domino data from a regular webpage using jQuery and a Lotusscript agent returning data as JSON. The issue with this solution is that the web page must be on the same web application path as the […]
