Widget toolbox and Update Site
Fri, Apr 19th 2013 6:17a Thomas Lindberg I have recently started a project deploying widgets and plugins to my IBM Notes users.
To accomplish that i will have to use the Widget toolbox and update site. When you have made an Updatesite you can install plugins to you IBM Notes clients via policy or Application Management. If you want to install it via policy, you will have to use the Widget toolbox, and you have to use a file called extension.xml.
I didn’t know how to make that, and there was a simple way to make one (Thanks to Mr. [read] Keywords: ibm

How do you reduce spam on your blog in WordPress
Fri, Mar 8th 2013 5:11a Thomas Lindberg Ever since I started my blog I have had some problems with spam comments on my blog.
So I just want to tell some of the things i have done, trying to reduce the spam comments on my blog. And maybe get some ideas to fight it even harder.
1. Close comments on Older posts.
This will reduce the amount of spam you can recieve, unless you write many blog post every day, there will be less blog post for the spammers to comment on.
2. Use Captcha plugin

How to control where agents run in clustered environment
Wed, Feb 20th 2013 6:11a Thomas Lindberg At IBM Connect in January during “Ask the Product Managers” sombody asked how he could control where an agent ran in a clustered environment.
In agent settings you can specify which server the agent runs on, but if server is down ? What to do.
I have made a database that can control this.
Here is how it works.
Put the database on the server, and create a document for each agent you want to control.
in here you set the agent, and which server you would like it to run on.

A sad IBM Connect 2013
Wed, Feb 6th 2013 6:10a Thomas Lindberg Now i’am safe home from IBM Connect / Lotusphere 2013 and just want to recap.
Normally i can think about what i have learned, and what i want to share with others. But this year I lost my god friend and colleague Kenneth Kjærbye in a tragic accident sunday.
He had an accident on motorbike sunday near Tampa. It touched us all very much.
The last time i saw him was sunday morning, before the Hogride. At that time he was very happy, and I will remember him that way. And I hope you all will.

Upgrade users local names.nsf
Fri, May 11th 2012 6:13a Thomas Lindberg Tip:
How do you upgrade a users local addressbook ? Ex. after an upgrade of the client.
Normaly it will upgrade it self, but sometimes it fails.
There are several ways to do this. Here is some comments about that.
One way is to run “compact -c” against the names.nsf.
This will update the ODS. You may also want to consider adding the following line to your users
notes.ini. This will ensure that any future new db are created with the new ODS:

Get data from DB2 via LotusScript
Thu, May 10th 2012 6:13a Thomas Lindberg I have recently made an Lotus Notes Database, where i needed to get some information from DB2.
I this case i also had the issue that only the server could connect to the DB2.
I made an agent that call another agent with the runOnServer method.
Then you can select a document, start a agent that calls a agent on a server, connect to db2, and update the selected document.
Here is an example on how to call db2 in a agent.

Wed, Feb 15th 2012 12:04a Thomas Lindberg Have you ever wanted to print to another printer than the default in Lotus Notes via LotusScript.
