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.

The release of RIM's BlackBerry Mobile Fusion has me honestly thinking that I'm missing out on some evolved platform and device experience since I gave up my BlackBerry Bold for my iPhone 4. And since I'm an amazingly selfish person, I've all but abandoned any BlackBerry platform mobile device development efforts.
... and I was a huge BlackBerry fanboy. Remember Showtime, my BES channel push utility for the IBM Lotus Notes client?! It was even showcased during a WES presentation in 2009!
But today I don't have a BlackBerry device (not counting my v5 OS-running BlackBerry Curve that is now the family extra mobile), be it a BlackBerry Bold, Playbook, or any of the like. Thus, my interest in writing for that platform has waned.
... that is, unless there is a solid need for supporting that platform by you, Constant Reader!
So instead of simply putting out a blog post to get an idea as to what devices you use personally as well as which devices you have to support in your company, I thought I'd have a little fun and try out a survey service...

Back in November of 2010, I wrote the following editorial: Adaptive Tutorial User Experience for IBM Lotus Notes Domino Apps. I never actually completed the series... until now.
This post will act as the landing page for a multi-part series on creating an adaptive user experience for IBM XPage-based applications.
|Table of Contents|
In this series, you will be creating a multi-platform mobile device user interface and enhanced user experience for a Domino Server-hosted NotesDatabase app using the Personal Address Book Template.
One of the more important but often overlooked phase of a development project is often the inclusion of representation of the target audience -- or most importantly any project champions -- in the "Design" phase.
Involving a user in the process is apparently taboo... and I find that not many developers actually do this. Let's take a look at an example scenario that, sadly, I've seen play out far too many times...

While the on-stage demos at Lotusphere 2011 were great, it was obvious that this year was a rebuilding year for the Lotus portfolio. We have major releases coming out, which promise advanced features that our users demand... but at the same time IBM has given us Lotus Notes and Domino professionals the tools to -- if it's not already in the product -- address any functionality gap ourselves should we feel inclined to </bitching><doing>.
There were a few amazing takeaways from Lotusphere 2011 however... but one of the ones that I found most inspiring and certainly telling of the capabilities now available to the IBM Lotus Notes Domino XPages application developer wasn't something that I saw on stage or even at the Product Showcase...
