Tips:

Darren:

Free antivirus from Microsoft.....yes! Microsoft. And it’s pretty good. Good for home PCs and personal laptops. See the Microsoft Security Essentials site for more details.
Mat:

Web 1.0 was I’ll publish something, so you can you consume it, Web 2.0 is “let’s interact with one another”. I know a product that’s over 21 years old which does BOTH!  If your Admin hasn’t given you “social” apps in your Notes/Domino environment, things like Forums, Wikis, Blogs and SameTime you should be demanding them to improve your productivity and interaction with others - they are, after all - FREE!
Karen:

Attend the biggest IBM/Lotus conference in Australasia - AusLUG!  And buy my book - IBM Lotus Notes 8.5 User Guide!
Richard:

Xpages and modern web interfaces mean that you need to know CSS, as well as everything else! A good CSS editor will help. Getting into this means understanding how pages will look in a different way. I user TopStyle but there are other tools. The trick is to lay out your CSS in a good way, so your processing order is correct as much as possible as styles are applied in order as they are read by the browser as they go through the sheet. The first style is applied and then the second and so on. That means  if a style appears at the top of a style sheet and then is changed lower down in the document, the second item of that style will be the one applied, not the first one. So what you might think should be black could be Red, as its defined again later in your sheet. !Important helps overide this, but its better to structure your CSS sheets in a logical way up front, using a defined structure. So, your most underlying elements, like pages, navigation, content containers and global styles such as default fonts, define at the top of your CSS sheet in clearly labelled areas. More granular stuff, define later in the sheet, but labelled according to the job the code is going to do, eg article styles,  call to action buttons, quote boxes or page specific items.
Stuart:

My word, these tips are getting tough!  Handbrake DVD ripping made easy. Awesome app, started on Mac, now on Windows & Linux too.  Oh, and Plex for viewing said rips, including new Plex iOS app.

TWiL - The show must go on!
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 11:51p   Stuart McIntyre
In response to lots of kind words from our listeners, Darren and I are continuing to produce This Week in Lotus on an occasional basis... Whilst there are really no IBM products left that enjoy the 'Lotus' moniker, there is definitely a 'Lotus community' that survives. Given the closeness of the friendships and the enduring sense of kindred spirit, I have a feeling that we'll still be gathering in person and online many years after all installs of Notes and Domino have long since been r [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm lotus notes community
