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.

I found myself in a pretty interesting situation today: I had a customer that had a need that I could address with a very low-tech solution. And it got me wondering if we don't put too much on building this monolithic solution that leverages the greatest cutting edge technology to date and something that's completely unique and amazing... just to sorta pad our own egos -- me being a huge offender of that very thing! I will often take a look at a situation and say, "Hmm, I know how everyone else would handle it; how should I take a look at it?".
And for better or worse, I talk about these really cool, unconventional ways of addressing an issue.
Well, I try not to do that for customers and in particular I didn't this time around. Now, the problem (if you will) or the request was simple: they had a Lotus Notes Client-based application that they wanted to be able to take to the mobile device. Now, the mobile device in question was a Blackberry. They run their own BES server; it's all in-house. They have people in the field that access their backend environment with Blackberries.
Everything was setup, so all I had to do was take the data out of the NotesDatabase and put it into a format that would work on the Blackberry.
I could use direct HTTP Requests... so I went that route.

Another drive-time podcast where I discuss the use of XPages as XAgents to act as HTTP Request Consumers for IBM Lotus Notes Domino Web Applications! In this post, which runs just shy of twelve (12) minutes, you'll get more information on my Domino RESTful Web Service efforts, as well as some behind the scenes info about YellowCast!

While driving from one customer location to another today, I thought that I would take some time and record a quick update on SOTU, my Remote Console Command Utility for IBM Lotus Notes Domino. The topic of this podcast, which is part of the Public Build for the next release of SOTU (v0.4) focuses on the mobile device platform we'll target for developing SOTU's mobile device client app.
If you're reading this on the site, you'll be able to use the Yahoo Media Player widget to stream the podcast, which runs 00:03:40. Those of you using the dominoGuru.com RSS Content Feed will pick this up as an enclosure.

And so the Public Build of the next version of SOTU, my Remote Console Command Utility for IBM Lotus Notes Domino, begins... And to kick things off, a quick drivetime podcast where I babble on about my ideas for using MD2 Hashes to create an Oauth-like security architecture.
I think it's both a good idea, and not too shabby of a podcast. Running 00:03:14 (that's 3 minutes, 14 seconds), it's also a quick listen.
As I state in the podcast, any suggestions or feedback are welcome, and I plan on making this build as public and detailed as possible... so expect to see more posts like this - using audio, video, and plain-ol'-text - documenting the whole process.
Re-Cast: YellowCast - Episode 5: Yellow and Blue (or why having Lotusphere Booth Babes could be a bad thing!)

With Lotusphere 2010 just days from now, I thought that I would re-post Episode 5 of the YellowCast where -- aside from some solid IBM Lotus Notes Domino Development tips and deep-dive discussion -- Tim and I discuss the possible negative impact of having a vendor hiring a booth babe for Lotusphere.
Listening to this episode really makes me want to get back into podcasting again (and the good news is Tim is up for it). Might go PG-13 versus our NC-17 rating that this podcast pulled down for the reboot...
But back on topic -- what do you guys think of booth babes? To get my opinion, check out the episode (both embedded on the dominoGuru.com RSS Site Feed and streaming on the site).
