Help out a fellow reader

A fellow reader has a request you may be able help to him with. He's starting a new contract soon and needs to brush up his Lotuscript. To do this he was hoping to find a copy of a database Lotus used to host at the following address, called ls50ltlc.nsf:


In typical IBM fashion they've commited the unforgivable act of breaking the URL. It's no longer there and can't be found anywhere else. But, apparently, it was supplied on Que's Special Edition - Using Lotus Notes & Domino 5 CD-Rom in 3rdPary\Lotus\ls50ltlc.nsf.

Has anybody got that book or a copy of the .nsf? If you mail it to me I'll try and host it here on codestore. Maybe you've got another database that's just as useful? I remember one from when I started. Can't remember what it was called but just that it had an awful navigator that launched every time you opened it. I think there were two of them. One for @Formulae and one for Lotuscripts.

Update: You guys are quick! Thanks to Gerolf Nauwerck for the copy of Dom50tlc.nsf and to Pat Read for a copy of ls50ltlc.nsf. Both now hosted here for as long as it takes for somebody official sounding to ask me not to.

Pat found them by simply searching Google for ls50ltlc.exe rather than ls50ltlc.nsf. What you find is an interesting site. For starters they have the Que Domino 5 book's content we were looking for. They also host what appears to be a whole load of Safari books and their CD contents listed by ASIN number.


  1. Jake,

    I have a copy of the database that accompanied the Practical Lotusscript book. It was released in the early R5 days, but obviously covers most of the basics. It's about 3.5Mb let me know if you want a copy to try and host or pass on.

  2. Jake,

    I think I have ls50ltlc.nsf on an old cd at home.

    I'll be home next Friday and let you know.

    Send it over Graham. The more the better.

    No need now Vitor. We found it. Thanks for the offer anyhow.

    You can find it (and other learning centers) at web.archive.org:


  3. Jake, If you have not already received a copy of the database, it's on its way.


  4. Hello Jake!

    Have a look here

    I just don't understand why we are supposed to help someone who doesn't know how to do a job hack their way through it.

    I'm sure that most people will think that I am a mean person, but the truth as I have experienced it is that the level of competence in our industry is sorely lacking and more people like this just make life harder for those of us who have worked our tails off to really know what we are doing.

    I'm probably just taking this way too seriously, given the current job situation in my area. Good luck to you, whomever you are.
