I've noticed a growing trend for people being interviewed recently. Now I get my turn at DominoZone. Makes me feel almost famous. You can read the interview here. Nothing special, just me being the usual me. That site has potential if Rune keeps it up. He seems able to get others involved in a creative way. Something I gave up on a long time ago. There's a nice article about Spam relays that would be hard to find elsewhere. Good luck Rune.
Mike mentioned OddPost recently on Notestips.com and I've been in awe ever since. That's one nice application. The kind that makes me want to view source. The thing with OddPost is that it's not as easy as a right-click or Ctrl-N. This (along with my earlier comments on right-clicking) reminded me of another useful cheat. You can type "view-source:" before the protocol of a URL in the address bar and this will launch it a in a text editor. Try it here: view-source:http://codestore.net
Happy birthday mum...
In the next few weeks I am going to make some changes to the way that the whole comments system works on the site. With content being the key to the site's success I need to make sure that all content makes the mark. In essence, this means no more questions that show very little thought process on the poster's behalf and an emphasis on posts that try to add true value.
Must learn to check my hunches before I go shooting my mouth off. Somehow I knew yesterday's idea was likely already a feature of Domino 6. Sure enough, Ruediger Seiffert (thanks to the others as well) has sent me this screenshot. Three years two late and probably two years before I get to make practical use of it but hey, at least it's there:
Although, as Ruediger points at, this by no means guarantees it will be in the gold release ;-)
Does this look like I've not tried Domino 6 yet? I have had a quick look, but didn't see that feature. Well, it's hard to see the beauty in something so ugly without getting to know it better.
What would really answer all my prayers is if this was possible even when content was "Notes". The trouble with "treat as HTML" is that you can't edit these documents. I want a form that I can edit and still have full control of the HTML. I don't want Iris trying to code for me. That's my job Iris, yours is to store my data for me.
They also claim that Domino 6 can render pages in XHTML. I will believe that when I see it.
Did you notice that the URLs I supplied yesterday for the RSS feeds weren't links? This was on purpose! The reason being that Domino can't render XML. By this I mean that, although the page called "rss-articles.xml" is enabled with "Treat contents as HTML" property and contains nothing but strict XML, Domino can only return the content-type "text/html" to the browser. What I really wish they would do is give us the ability to specify any content-type we like. Instead of a tick-box for "Treat content as HTML" I want a text-box where I enter whatever I need to. Iris! I've done half the job for you and re-jigged your Page Properties dialog box:
This is something I discussed in an interview I'm doing at the moment for DominoZone.net, where I'm asked what the one thing I wish they would put in Domino 6 was.
I've always moaned about the huge lack of any decent websites aimed soley at Domino developers. For a while I've even been confident enough to say that I led the market ;-) I may have spoken too soon - my competition is here now ;-(
Drum-role please. The newly-launched NotesTips.com is here...
The main man behind it is my new colleague and a very talented developer, Mike Golding. Expect to see some decent content in the near future. He has many of the same ideals as I do when it comes to what you should and shouldn't do. The fact that we communicate on a daily basis will hopefully mean that there is very little duplicate content or toe-treading.
