Products & Applications
The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time. Based on several requests, you can also select the priority, apply categories, or even align your time against a project.
For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!
My Configuration-based Rich Text Mail Merge and Emailing Utility, Zephyr allows you to create rich, data-driven emails to support automated workflow - all via Microsoft Word Mail Merge-like architecture. Dear <firstname> allows you to personalize each email message not only to the individual recipient, but also to the individual application workflow event!
xCopy is a simple configurable xCopy client for the Lotus Notes client. By creating and defining xCopy Profiles, you can batch process your file backup or remote upload jobs. With the addition of the xCopy sidebar widget, you can easily kick-off these jobs, and modify both the xCopy Profiles and xCopy itself.

Consider this a confessional post.
I love challenges when it comes to code. Tell me it can't be done, and I take that as a personal attack and will do everything that I can do prove you - naysayer of all things great and truthy - are wrong.
My biggest problem is... once I've proven that it can be done to myself, I get bored really quick... and I tend to walk away.
The thing is... I don't even have to write it to get my apathy up about something - once I figure it out in my head I'm often already moving on... which is not good.
This results in the quiet death of a lot of some really cool things, and I'm going to try - really put in an effort - to correct this particular character flaw that I see in myself.
To start, I've published 2 downloadable examples recently: SOTU - Remote Console Reporting v0.1 and Sorting Hat v0.1 - both of these simple applications (that admittedly aren't ground-breaking or amazing per se but have their charms) are both available for download... and I will try my best to keep up with them.
This was the first step - the second... well, I don't want to say anything that might wind up not getting done, so I'll just keep a tight lip until I have something a little more concrete to show you.
About Chris Toohey
Chris Toohey, perhaps best known from dominoGuru.com, is an award-winning ICS developer, technical author, and community advocate. Chris brings over 14 years of experience with ICS products to the global community of IT professionals through both online and "real world" evangelism. Evolving in tandem with the greater online community, his prolific participation in the IBM LDD forums publically addressing business partner and customer needs transitioned to leveraging enterprise and consumer social networking. As the lead for multiple OpenNTF.org projects ("Showtime" even being showcased by RIM during several WES presentations), former Lead Community Advocate (non-IBMer) for the IBM Lotus Technical Information and Education community, one of the first "Remote Residency" authors for multiple IBM Redbook Wikis, and "Guru" for GBS, Inc., Chris has established himself as a "go-to" resource for customers, business partners, and IBMers alike.
Chris has presented for The View's admin2010 & developer2010 and various Lotus User Groups, was named the PlanetLotus.org 2009 Blogger of the Year, an IBM Champion for Lotus/ICS 2012, and -- on most evenings -- can be found writing "Best Practices" material for the IBM Lotus Notes Domino Application Developer.
I have been publishing articles and (sometimes) maintaining a weblog since October 23rd, 2002 - mainly for two reasons:
- I get a geek-flavored buzz from helping someone with a problem.
- I wanted to find a way to build on my development skills.
I know that I've built and continue to build my development skills each passing day, and I hope that something on this website has helped people who were looking for a solution to their given issue.
About the future...
You're currently reading this on the v2 template architecture that I've written to "offer" this site. Aside from ongoing changes to the site, you will also see an fluxuation in the content - in my line of work, diversifying your portfolio is the lifeblood of your ability to leverage existing technology investments while providing solutions that will carry the client into the next few years. This being said, I will more-than-likely maintain a certain type of information here... but the content can/will shift depending on where I am at any given point.
I try to make myself available for contact to pretty much anyone who would like to touch base. While I might be working onsite with a client at the given time you need to reach me - please don't be put off if I write back "otp" or "with client". That being said, here's a few ways to get in touch with me:
