IBM is talking about social business, the press is talking about Social media.
It all comes down to doing things together breaking down barriers and software like IBM Connections makes the gap between you and your customers/colleagues smaller. Your company can works as one because everybody knows what is happening and the interaction with your customers are faster.
If you have the possibility get together with your customers at their location and take a FIKA (Swedish for Coffee break) and listen to your customers that is how simple social can be.
As soon as I recived my Champion kit, the first thing I did was placing this on my Office wall.
Me and all the other 2013 Champions like to share and will continue to do so. If you have a question around Domino, XPages or anything related to this, I promise to respond. So if you have a question contact me thru email, twitter and I will help you or help you find someone who can help.
Also my thanks goes to Joyce our Champion helping hand.
There as been some writing around attacks against WordPress based sites and a lot of them has been taken over and malicious code was injected on these sites. How was most of these attacks done? Well I think that this was probably done thru so called brute force attacks. The hacker have a software that is posting in attempts on the login page and they know that the default admin account is “admin” on WordPress, alot of sites haven’t removed this account. This type of Brute Force attacks can be done against your Domino environment also. But there are several ways to prevent it and one way is “Password Lockout”. It’s very easy to implement on your server so if you haven’t I suggest you do.
This is how you add this to your Domino Site.
In your Name and address book for the server goto Configurations
Open up the corresponding document for your server, Some times there is only a entry like this
Then I take a copy of this document and open it you need to change to it affects you server you need to uncheck the “Use these settings as the default . . . .” checkbox
When this is done the new field where you specify your Server name is revealed write the name of you server.
Go to the second tab “Security”
Change “Enforce Internet Password Lockout” to Yes and a checkbox to log “Failures” and save the configuration and restart the http service on the server the “Password Lockout” database (inetlockout.nsf) is created the first time a password failure occurs so I suggest your try with your own login so the database is created and you can adjust the acl as you like it.
I have released a stability fix for my utility Client Killer now version 3.1 to help you kill the Notes Client if it hangs. You can also clean the log files after you have killed it, I have seen jvm dumps of 2GB in the log folders. If you’re not downloaded it yet get it here –> Client Killer
My other tools designer memory or it should be names Client memory helps you to configure the memory parameters of eclipse in the client. Did you know that the memory configuration is cleared if you install a fixpack? But if you have my tool in autostart it will fix this automatically. Check the Extras folder for the preconfigured icons. Get Designer memory utility here —> Designer memory
If you have a improvement suggestions or an idea for a new utility, add a comment or send it to me thru contact.
I often have quite large databases at customers and in the QNova development phases with lots of design elements. You look at a button and find that and agent is used or a function is called in a script library, you switch to the agents view and starts to look inside the view for the agent by scrolling down.
But there is a better and faster way to find what you are looking for, Designer filter.
The filter is in all design element views so it’s not a XPage only feature.
The great thing about this is that it’s lightning fast and you could write parts of name and it doesn’t need to be in the beginning of the name.
A great feature that needs to have some light on it. It’ helps me be more productive everyday!
Google breaks with Webkit and starts a competitor rendering engine Blink and the main reason is that they don’t want to be controlled by Apple what goes into the engine or not. Opera also annouced they will start using this engine. I think this started when Apple did throw out Google from IOS 6, now they throw out Apple from a free ride to browser rendering.
Checkout the developer Q&A
Another big news today was the that Firefox and Samsung is developing their own nextgen rendering engine Servo. Samsung announced earlier that they are going to switch focus from Android to their own smartphone OS Bada, I think that will be difficult for Samsung, look at HP and Web OS.
Facebook also announced an Android facebook takeover application that will take over your phone with Home. It will replace homescreen, dialer and messaging app in your android phone with Facebook Home.
Check out my two post last year regarding a SSJS Debugger –> Link
Conditional breakpoints was one of the suggestions that was voted up as a function in the debugger and we get that. I don’t know if someone at IBM did read this and the feature is there because of the post but I like to think so
If you have any great tip regarding debugging in Designer 9 please feel free to comment.
I had some feedback on the designer some weeks ago, that it would be good to filter away closed databases in package explorer. This does already exists in Designer today, Kudros to Dan O’Connor that showed me this. (The icon has changed from 8.5.3 to Designer 9)
And uncheck Closed projects
Now your package explorer is much cleaner and you can find you databases alot faster.
The closed project does also show up directly in the menu so you easily can toggle it.
You can also use worksets here to get better filtering of databases and on disk projects
There is a easy way to check if the browser as internet access or not. In the wireless and mobile world a check if the loaded page has internet access can be very good, a very easy check can save you alot of problem.
