A lot of things happened since Monday morning. It turned out I was not at all alone in thinking this. So there are some other posts on the subject, much better than my rant. And most importantly you can find Ed Brill's comment under Darren's post.
(I tried to sort them chronologically, not 100 % sure I did it right, though)
I'm just making this quick short note to save myself a few searches next time I'll need this:
Do you want to manipulate PDF files, for example to merge them? Use Apache PDFBox. Version 2.0.1 works just fine on Domino, API is well documented and reading PDF files from notes documents is easy - EmbeddedObject has method getInputStream().
This is starting to be a little old, but after every BLUG/Engage every blogger from the community simply has to - contract is very strict about this :) - write that Theo and Hilde did it again, that Engage was bigger than last year, venue was impressive and event most successful. It's very easy to do so, as it is 100 % true.
My wife and I are not the biggest fans of winter, especially version of it that we usually have in Prague. Every year we plan our vacation to cover as much winter time as possible. Last year we spent 7 weeks in Nicaragua and at the end of our stay we felt we hit the limit of how long we can/want be abroad and NOT doing anything else than travelling. Therefore we've decided to try another approach.
You may already have 9.0.1FP5 or better FP5IF1 installed. If Designer is part of your installation, chances are all your plugins in DDE got disabled. I mean the plugins you have installed to DDE, such as newer version of Extension Library or OpenNTF Domino API.
Solution seems to be simple: in Designer go to File - Application - Application management, expand the second entry and there you should see list of user installed plugins. You can select them all and then Enable them. Or simply enable only those you want to use.
I finally have some more time to write blogpost about thing that has made me very happy recently.
Thanks to all of you who have nominated me and all people involved in final decision my IBM Champion status has been extended for the next year!
Being awarded for something I love to do is very nice, right? I mean I was making contributions to the community before I was awarded. I never did it because I wanted to be awarded. But it feels good to be officially recognized, to know people are appreciating what you do.
You may know that I'm involved in organizing Social Connections and SUTOL conferences. I do love working with both teams to make those events happen. It's never ending work, lots of hours, lots of effort and lots of fun. But during the events I don't (none of the organizers) have time to enjoy it.
