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.

Author's Note: I figure if I name these things, I'll get them out...
I've gotten a lot of feedback - most of it offline, are people reluctant to comment?! - regarding the example notifications utility that I mentioned when discussing MMM yesterday - so much so in fact that it warrants me creating a new project here. And this is where Project: Zephyr is born!
Here's a diagram of the basic architecture of Zephyr, which will be a super-user-defined notifications utility for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino, that I quickly threw together:
Here, a copy of a document from a defined source Notes Application is placed in Zephyr. A scheduled Agent will run against all newly added documents, and check to see if an email template for the given source Application matches based on a defined criteria. If there's a match, the Agent will run a mail-merge of the source document and the designated email template - the result creating an email in the server's mail.box!
Simple stuff, I know.
I'm still hammering out the logistics here, but I already have a few production copies of this same utility floating around a few customer locations so I both know that it's a solid and useful solution. Left out of the diagram is the logging and retention-logic of the source documents.
One of the outstanding questions is, however, "How do I distribute it?"...
