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 […]

IBM Connect 2016 coming up!
Tue, Dec 8th 2015 8:00p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
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 […]

Yesterday I got the following email from IBM: For the third year in a row I have been honored as an IBM Champion for Social Business.

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 […]

Code – Get date range as years, months and days
Sat, Jul 4th 2015 10:07a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
There is a question in the IBM DeveloperWorks forum for Notes/Domino 8 about how to calculate the number of years, months and days between two dates. Then the poster wanted to calculate the sum of two such date ranges and return that as years, months and days as well. Since the lack of formatting in […]

Code – Read from and Write to Windows Registry in Lotusscript
Tue, Jun 23rd 2015 11:19a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
A question was posted in the IBM DeveloperWorks forum for Notes/Domino 8 about the possibility to detect from within Notes if a computer is equipped with a touch screen. The answer was that you have to check if a specific DLL is installed, which is done though the registry. The original posted then asked how to do […]

Wed, Jun 10th 2015 3:44p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
IBM just published information about the future of the conference known as Lotusphere/IBM Connect/IBM ConnectED. To the contrary of what probably everyone thought, the conference will be back in Orlando in January 2016, reverting back to the name IBM Connect. It’s long run at Walt Disney Dolphin and Swan (affectionate known as Swolphin) will however be […]

WWII – 75 years since Denmark and Norway were occupied
Fri, Apr 10th 2015 1:15a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
In the morning of April 9, 1940 Germany invaded Denmark and Norway in a surprise attack. Denmark had virtually no chance at all and was quickly overrun by the well-trained and experienced Wehrmacht. After six hours Denmark had no choice but to surrender. The quick surrender is thought to have resulted in a more lenient treatment […]

I have been testing IBM Verse Preview a little now, and I have compiled a list of some features I would like to see implemented. I have not included things in the UI (User Interface), because it is clear that part is still being polished/developed, and have some ways to go. I am going to focus […]

At IBM ConnectED in January IBM promised that all attendees would get early access to the next generation web-based email presented at the conference, IBM Verse. Jeff Schick initially promised it for february, but after several emails where the attendees were offered to sign up, it got very very quiet. Today the real invitation finally […]

Microsoft and jQuery Ajax calls – not using standards
Tue, Mar 10th 2015 4:55p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I recently started using C# and .NET for the first time to build a web application. It is just a proof of concept application where I am trying to implement CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) though jQuery and Ajax calls from a simple webpage. The application should let me retrieve a list of all companies in […]

We are living in the future
Sat, Feb 14th 2015 11:50p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
The last few years I have revisited the stories of some of my childhood favorite sci-fi authors, and in particular Robert A Heinlein. It is fascinating to read stories written in the 50’s and 60’s and compare them to what actually happened. Last week I finished The Door into Summer (1956) which takes plave in […]

7 Rules for Creating Gorgeous UI
Fri, Feb 13th 2015 10:23a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I found this two-part article about web design very interesting and want to share it. I am very similar to the author, I have also learned what looks good by looking at sites. In the end, I learned the aesthetics of apps the same way I’ve learned any creative endeavor: cold, hard analysis. And shameless copying […]
