Does anybody have a cure for extremely small fonts in some incoming mails?
Wed, Sep 14th 2016 12:00p   Robert Ibsen Voith
For some reason I have extremely small fonts in the news mails from Twitter. I haven’t seen the problem elsewhere. Below you see how the mail looks in the preview pane. It is the same when opening the mail. In am on FP7 of Notes 9.0.1.

iPhone memory constraints? Make iOS clean up by renting a huge movie from iTunes Store!
Mon, Apr 4th 2016 8:36a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Some time ago I wrote a post titled Hmmm, a restore of my iPhone 5S found and freed 7,3 GB from nowhere?! Obviously iOS hasn’t become much better with the latest iOS 9.3 and 9.3.1 and on my phone something keeps eating the memory, and iOS can’t keep track of it. I hoped apps like iRefresh Pro could help me free something, but it only frees minimal amounts of memory. Today I found this post on Reddit - and the trick freed 1 GB on my phone instantly!!! Others have regained much more!!

iOS 9.3 on an iPad 2 == Bricked iPad
Sat, Mar 26th 2016 7:55a   Robert Ibsen Voith
First it nagged me about the new update: My old iPad 2 kept popping up the dialog box informing me about the availability of the new iOs 9.3. Then I have in: Yesterday I finally gave in an started the update process. EVerything downloaded OK and seemed to install OK too. Did it work? Unfortunately no - Everything when fine until when the newly updated iPad wanted to authenticate with Apple. After several minutes I got this message;

Windows 10: I finally stopped Windows from hijacking my file assosiations
Fri, Mar 18th 2016 5:43a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Rome wasn’t built on one day, and neither was Windows Albeit all the cool new ways to change default applications, most of them didn’t work for me - and Windows hijacked all my file assosiations again. I blogged about that here Super-annoying "feature" in Windows 10 - It keeps hijacking my file associations! The following trick worked for me! Simply right-click on a file, and click the Change-button to change the default application for the file type.

The labyrinths of Bluetooth - or - how my Nissan Qashqai lost it"s audio (and finally got it back!)
Wed, Mar 16th 2016 6:11a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Bluetooth is one of the small technological wonders that surrounds us. Connect almost everything together to enhance the “thing-experience”. For example I have connected my car’s audio system (a 2012 Nissan Qashqai) to my iPhone 5s, and thus I can listen to audio stored on my iPhone. Great for learning a language when commuting! A couple of days ago, the sound suddenly died in my car! The “head unit” (the display and all the buttons) with the navigation, radio and p

Super-annoying "feature" in Windows 10 - It keeps hijacking my file associations!
Sat, Mar 5th 2016 7:21a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Windows 10 is a great update in many respects, but one thing is really annoying- Windows 10 insists hard on using Edge as the PDF viewer, and it’s own Photo App as the photo-viewer. Well, I like Acrobat to be my primary PDF viewer, and Picasa Photo Viewer as the photo-viewer - hence my default applications. Why the heck does Microsoft even attemt to please me with it’s Default Apps like the one below and let me choose Picasa Photo Viewer as my default app, like this... ... for then

IBM Connect 2016 session database with abstracts - just add presentations
Mon, Feb 15th 2016 3:11a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Maybe it is just me, but I like to have my Lotusphere-presentations in my own session databases. Makes it sooo much easier to search and find the presentations I have therefore created a Notes database with only the session abstracts in place. You need to go to to the Files-area in the IBM Connections 2016 portal and download all files into a directory  and import themselves.  Go to the bottom of the Files-area and click on the “Download all files” link; You find the da

Would it be an idea to warn user about redirect-URLs?
Tue, Feb 9th 2016 6:34a   Robert Ibsen Voith
For many years the Notes client has protected users from showing images in incoming mail, like this; The purpose is probably twofold - first to save some space if you don’t want the mail in the first place, and second to prevent the user to reveal to the originator that the mail has been seen. - “How can the originator know that the mail has been seen by me, simply by showing the images?”, you ask Some sites use clever naming conventions on their images, meaning that the imag

A small sample on how to create your own toolbar in IBM Notes client
Sun, Jan 17th 2016 10:56a   Robert Ibsen Voith
I have just blogged about how users of my product Notes Import Export Library can extend their use of the tool by using a custom toolbar in the Notes client in the How to create Notes Import Export Library Toolbar with buttons for export to Excel.  The users end up with a toolbar like this; Clicking on the buttons export the current IBM Notes view to Excel. Please note that Notes Import Export Library a purchasable product, but you can of course use the described technique to do any @formu

Hmmm, a restore of my iPhone 5S found and freed 7,3 GB from nowhere?!
Mon, Dec 21st 2015 5:10a   Robert Ibsen Voith
I know, having 16 GB iPhone s%&ks , and I am getting used to see the “Storage almost full” message almost every day; Every time I enter the Manage Storage screen to see what I can delete, but lately I has become more difficult to actually find something to delete! Below you see the status I had before my restore; 116 MB left.... My largest application is 547 MB so I couldn’d quite the numbers to add up. I therefore did a manual calculation of all the applications listed i

Domino 9.0.1 FP5 updater also have problems ifyou have hotfixes installed
Wed, Dec 9th 2015 8:40a   Robert Ibsen Voith
I currently have Domino 9.0.1 FP4 HF419 on Win32 installed. Some days ago IBM released the FixPack 5 (FP5) for IBM Notes and Domino 9.0.1. Very soon after problems were discovered with the client installer and the FP5 updater was withdrawn. I can just confirm that the Domino updater also has problems, if you have installed hotfixes. Below is the screenshot from the updater: Unfortunate that the updater doesn’t “roll over” the hotfixes....  Next thing is to try to uninsta

Domino 9.0.1 FP5 finally installed, but "nsdhelp.dll" was missing afterwards ...
Wed, Dec 9th 2015 8:12a   Robert Ibsen Voith
According to this news flash from IBM, they ackowledge that there is some problems with the FPP5 updater. Indeed so, it won’t install if you have hotfixes installed as I blogged about here. The news flash from IBM also stated that you could rerun any hotfix-installers to revert back to the previous level of code. I found my HF419 installer and ran it again. First it identified that I could revert back to vanilla 9.0.1 FP4 level, and I continued... First off I got this: ... hmmm, for some
