Remember about a month ago I asked for help from a Lotus COM API guru on behalf of a customer of mine?
At the time I thought it was a long shot but I just got word that the problem has been solved thanks to the generosity and knowledge of David "Dragon" Cotterill.
I've seen the email thread between the two parties and (although it goes way beyond my knowledge levels -- lots of talk of "semaphores") I can see it took a lot of David's time digging about in NSD files to resolve.
You'd expect David to have charged for this, as he'd be right to do so. I know I probably would. Instead though he wants nothing more than for me to be able to blog about it here. His intention being that it's good advertising for myself - if people think they can come to me for help with any problem whatsoever - no matter how obscure - it could mean more income for me in the long term.
It's heart-warming to know there are such generous people out there and that they're here in the Lotus/codestore community.
Now, my job is to convince David to accept at least a small token of my customer's appreciation (drink Scotch David?), as I know they're frustrated that they can't do at least something.
