Howdy, stranger!

Welcome to my cabin in the woods!

This site is dedicated to (web) development with IBM Collaborative Solutions (esp. IBM Notes/Domino and XPages), work, life and other stuff I may find important enough to write about. The rules are simple: if it fits in here I post it - and you are invited to comment on that if you like.

Watch out!

I am always late to the party when it comes to expensive technology. The reason is: I am waiting for the product to be mature and idiot-proof. My Macs were 4+ years old when I bought them from ebay. The only devices I bought new were iOS devices such as the iPhone X, the iPad Pro 9.7 from 2016 and my latest addition the iPad Pro 12.9 from 2018. When I saw the Apple keynote in September introduc [...] 

How to nominate an HCL Master

Friday, October 4, 2019 at 5:44 PM UTC
The nominations for HCL Masters are open since a few days. I didn't use the nomination survey yet but I will. However, there seem to be problems using the form from the official blog post though. The nomination form is realized with a SurveyMonkey form this time. The required informations are similar to what we are used from the IBM Champion nomination form. I don't have a f [...]

Quick-Tip: Missing a button in CKEditor? Here‘s why

Friday, September 20, 2019 at 2:47 PM UTC
I noticed this a while ago since I am using Domino V10 but now I did some investigation. For some reason the toolbar button to add a new image from a file was missing. This is the action that presents you a dialog where you could choose a file to upload. This is how the full toolbar looks like on Domino 9 and before: And this is what I got when running the same page on V10: The bu [...] 

Right out of hell - Domino Designer

Sunday, September 1, 2019 at 2:00 AM UTC
Since Notes 8 we have to use Domino Designer with Eclipse as the underlying framework. I never made bones about that I hate Eclipse in any flavor. In my opinion it’s the worst IDE you can work with. It’s unstable, it’s huge and slow - and dumb as fuck until you get the right plugins. Too many cooks spoiled the broth. Domino Designer on Eclipse (DDE) is even worse. It introduce [...] 

Zurück zum StiftPost in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Meine Handschrift ist scheiße. Ich habe seit Jahren keinen Stift benutzt, wenn ich nicht musste. Videoschnitt auf dem iPad mit Luma Fusion gab mir den entscheidenen Anstoß, mir den schweineteuren Apple Pencil 2 zu kaufen. Man ist so viel präziser als mit den Fingern. Ich kann zwar nicht zeichnen und ich bin kein Künstler, aber dank cleverer Apps gelingt auch das einigerma& [...]
