SyNAPSE - IBm aims to develop Asimov's positronic brain
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 6:12a Lars Berntrop-Bos IBM aims to develop Asimov's positronic brain: according to Dharmendra Modha the aim is to build a 100 trillion synapse system fitting a two liter box, consuming less than 1 kW of power. A long way off, but interesting nonetheless.
Following up on work commissioned by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), IBM has developed a programming paradigm, and associated simulator and basic software library, for its experimental SyNAPSE processor. The work suggests the processo [read] Keywords: ibm
Blast from the past: LMBCS tables for Windows, OS/2, Unix and Macintosh
Thu, Jul 10th 2014 6:12a Lars Berntrop-Bos Because this info is hard to find, posted here for posterity.
LMBCS code table for Windows , OS/2 and Unix
The following tables lists the available LMBCS codes for Notes, their compose or key sequences (if any), and the characters they produce. The first table lists the characters you can create in Windows, OS/2, and UNIX; the second table lists the characters you can create on a Macintosh. (Note: The column 'Character' is not filled in some cases because of translation issues.)

Undocumented compose sequence for at-sign (@) found
Wed, Jul 9th 2014 9:09a Lars Berntrop-Bos The Notes Browser plugin is a wondrous product. But try inserting an at-sign(@) using an AZERTY keyboard...
The solution is to use an undocumented compose sequence:
means press ALT and hold, press F1 and release, release Alt. then type an a and an a.
Hey presto, an @ sign appears!! [read] Keywords: notes
Getting Windows 7 x64 to use Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire Pro Ultimate Keyboard
Mon, Oct 7th 2013 7:09a Lars Berntrop-Bos Getting Windows 7 x64 to use Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire Pro Ultimate Keyboard
Preface: Recently purchased a Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire Pro Ultimate mechanical keyboard. I hit a few snags: the high quality braided USB cable was a dud, and the touted Plug and Play let me down. It refused to work on my Windows 7 x64. Contacting support or scouring the internet did not not help. I did stumble upon dpjaf4t, who had made Windows 7 work with a Logitech G510. Since the same symptoms were [read] Keywords: admin
Do not delete Perspectives in Domino Designer
Wed, Apr 4th 2012 6:50a Lars Berntrop-Bos a word of warning.
I found a list of perspectives in the preferences (used the search box, its in General:Perspectives.) in which you can also set the default perspective.
Great! I thought. And noticed al these duplicate perspectives with no icon. To wit: multiple instances of Calendar, Mail and ToDo.
Then I made the mistake of cleaning them up. And killed my Notes client (hangs in startup sequence)
DO NOT DO THIS. I am now reinstalling from scratch... [read] Keywords: domino
Serious LotusScript List bug
Wed, Feb 29th 2012 2:26a Lars Berntrop-Bos To serious LotusScript programmers, the List construct in combination with custom classes is a daily staple.
To find bugs in that is disconcerting...
this piece of code, running on Notes 8.5.3, mysteriously adds a previously non-existing listitem attributenlijst(veldSpec.tag) with value "":
call maildoc.ReplaceItemValue(veldSpec.veldnaam, attributenlijst(veldSpec.tag))
veldSpec.veldnaam is a nonempty string, veldSpec.tag is a nonempty string, attributenlijst is a List As String

And if you upgrade a server, prepare to start reporting how many cores are running Domino. This might save you a lot of money.
Since the number of Cores is reported in the Server document (and kept up-to-date by the Adminp task) , this easily automated. [read] Keywords: adminp

Re: Tuning 8.x.x standard client
Tue, Nov 10th 2009 2:50p Lars Berntrop-Bos a couple of remarks:It works for other RCP apps like the Sametime client too. You should not allocate too much memory to the JVM. More than 1700 and things get flaky. I stick to 1024. Other people have warned that this must not exceed physical RAM. And you need to have ample RAM. The odd thing is Notes will crash if you set the heap too high, but if you do have ample RAM the heap is mostly in VM, not in real memory... [read] Keywords: notes
Tuning 8.x.x standard client
Sat, Nov 7th 2009 4:24p Lars Berntrop-Bos Here's how to tune your Eclipse based 8.x.x client, also known as the standard client. As of October 12th, 2009, you want to use version 8.5.1 as it contains a lot of optimizations. And the Domino Designer upgrades to Java and LotusScript editing are really, really, really nice. For a great speed boost starting up the client and running Designer, use a trick Andrew Pollack described, and Jerome Carter substantiated. You should edit the jvm.properties file, just search the notes directory fo [read] Keywords: domino
