After a very long period of silence, here I am with a tiny little trick about File Download Control in XPages.

I saw that there are lots of questions about this component, related to showing attachments instead of downloading them. Instead of using Repeat controls to iterate within @AttachmentNames, I'm using the native download control with a little SSJS function to solve this problem.

Just a quick question.

Especially large domains have lots of users with the same full name. In modern directory systems, we can decrease the possibility of conflict by using hierarchical naming, however that will become an issue eventually, when you need to specify an e-mail address. I have seen that adding a number to the first or last name (John Smith , John 1 Smith, etc.) is highly popular.

How do you handle people with the same name in your environment (e.g. Domino, AD, Connections, etc.)?

This is going to be my third IBM Connect and second session. Excited!

Last year, my session co-presenter was my dear friend Bruce Elgort. I feel privileged this year again, because I am sharing the stage with a great speaker, Graham Acres...

The session is all about the IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK, which has been first announced at Lotusphere 2011. After three years, we will see much more content about it this year.

My previous blog post was ’Hot’!

Yesterday, I have blogged about the renewal of my IBM Champion title.

This morning I woke up with lots of notifications on my mobile. Apparently, my dear friend Bruce liked my blog post very much and he has posted it everywhere (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin Google Plus). The real surprise was on PlanetLotus waiting for me :)

Thank you Mr. Bruce Elgort...

Before writing this post I tried to remember when I have met Bruce for the first time. It was just 2.5 years ago when I received a twitter DM from him. I was at an airport in Germany waiting the boarding time. I remember had a short discussion over Skype.

2.5 years? Really? I feel like I know Bruce for decades.

After 5 months, here is a new blog post :)

Yesterday, I was upgrading a customer server and I have noticed that DAOS folder was larger than it should be. Since my customer is heavily using attachments in messages, a large DAOS folder is expected but 150 GB attachments for less than 100 users? Something's wrong here.

After I upgraded my servers to Domino 9, I have found two problems affecting HTTP task.

1. Redirect TCP to SSL problem...

My HTTP task stopped responding just after the upgrade. When I look into thread logs I saw that it was redirecting every requests to the same URL! After a couple of tests, I found that if you have "Redirect TCP to SSL" checked in your Internet Site document, it fails with infinite redirection problem.
