Howdy, stranger!

Come a little closer if you dare

This site is dedicated to all HCL Digital Solutions (esp. HCL Notes/Domino and XPages), smart home solutions and stuff I may find worthy to write about.

Thank you, Nathan!

Today we mourn for one of our members of the community (aka the Yellow bubble), Nathan T. Freeman. If you are working in the Notes/Domino area for some years you definitely came across this name. Nathan was one of the busiest developers for decades, always exploring the borders of Notes and Domino and way beyond. He was one of the founders of OpenNTF, the open-source platform for Notes an [...]

Now I want to focus on some improvements of the UI of the standard client. I am not talking about the new 64bit basic client which looks like...

Domino 12 beta 3: CertStore and Trusted Root Certificates

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at 3:12 AM UTC

With beta 3 you need a valid trusted r [...]

Setting up the backup feature is very simple: just load the service on the server console using l [...] 

Deutsche Post ≠ Deutsche PostPost in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 5:42 PM UTC
Ich musste knapp 49 Lenze alt werden, um zu lernen, dass die gute alte Deutsche Post nicht mehr existiert. Nein, wirklich nicht. Es gibt sie nicht mehr. Es mag Leute geben, denen das bekannt war, mir jedoch nicht. Was ich wusste ist, dass es neben der Postbank (Deutsche Bank) und DHL (Pakete) ja auch noch die Briefzustellung gibt, und die war, ist und bleibt für mich eben "die Post" [...] 

It's 21 and we are on to 12 #dominoforever

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 7:12 PM UTC
I love using click-bait-ish titles, right? This one addresses the year we're now in and "12" of course is referencing the version of HCL Notes and Domino which is currently under heavy beta testing around the globe. HCL just released the second iteration of it to the public. If you are not registered to the beta forum to give fee [...]
