Changes to Planet Lotus Hit Counts
Mon, Feb 6th 2012 1:04p Yancy Lent Post hit counts have been off lately. A bot had found a hidden script that moved older hit records to an archive table. I had created this script to reduce the number of records in the hit table, the 5 million+ hit records over the past couple of years was causing occasionally performance issues. I [...] [read] Keywords: lotus
This one’s for Bob Balaban
Wed, Apr 6th 2011 3:23p Yancy Lent In one of my favorite posts of 2009 Bob goes to town on the use of on-premise v. on-premises when talking about the "yeah cloud". Not only is it entertaining but it's also something IT folks should know cold. Fast-froward two years and not only am I careful when using the term but I also [...] [read] Keywords:

My email chain with Jake Howlett of CodeStore
Tue, Jul 13th 2010 1:00p Yancy Lent Little does he know, he changed my mind. I was going to email him today to let him know. I'll just let the site decide, it has an amazing way of doing that, not only from hits but from blog posts that people write.
Read from the bottom up. I'm posting the raw email so you [...] [read] Keywords: email
Your blog post comments are being stolen!
Wed, Nov 18th 2009 5:47p Yancy Lent Really?
As many of you have seen, a couple days ago I implemented a way to post inline replies or lets call them what they are, comments; on the front page of Planet Lotus. The comments appear right under the blog post itself and any registered member of the forum can make them. This is a [...] [read] Keywords: lotus
Planet Lotus server update
Wed, Nov 11th 2009 11:54a Yancy Lent Some good news, however I'll wait a good month to rule out any DoS suspicions; hopefully it's just the paranoia.
Thank you for contacting Server Support. I understand your server is down after doing a reboot. After reviewing your server it appears that the servers fan went bad. We have replaced the fan and the server [...] [read] Keywords: lotus
Fri, Oct 2nd 2009 11:18p Yancy Lent Google Sidewiki seems like a nice way to post graffiti like comments on Planet Lotus throughout the day. I've gone ahead and posted a note to get things started.

What attention seeking whore wouldn’t take part in this?
Thu, Sep 10th 2009 8:52a Yancy Lent The idea is simple, write a quality piece on anything Lotus and see if it has what it takes to win praise from Captains of our Industry.
Think about it, you might not have the skills to bust through the defensive line of the New England Patriots or score a goal on Manchester United, but surely [...] [read] Keywords: lotus
Why Lotus Journal?
Mon, Aug 31st 2009 2:29p Yancy Lent My last project came out of true personal need, a better way to organize, read and keep track of all the Lotus blogs I was consuming. The result was a ton of reading. As the number of blogs in the community increased so did the reading. So, how to cull if you can’t read everything?

SnTT: @Unique. Everything you ever wanted to know.
Thu, Jan 31st 2008 12:35p Yancy Lent I've had this for almost 10 years now. It came from an internal Lotus source back when I worked there as a developer. I took the examples out so its a partial document. For the record it was flagged 'Public' when I obtained it. I have removed the 2 paragraphs that were marked <<End of [...] [read] Keywords: lotus
