LEAD STORY

CREATE BARCODES IN LOTUS NOTES

A requirement might arise for you to generate bar codes using data in a Lotus Notes application. Barcodes can be displayed and printed in Lotus Notes quite easily using a Windows barcode font. For example, I tested and recommend a basic font package from IDAutomation called "Code 39 Barcode Font Advantage Package", and there are several other types of advanced barcode font packages available depending upon your barcoding requirement.

OVERVIEW OF AN IBM LOTUS DOMINO CLUSTER REPORTING TOOL
Using the tool, Domino administrators can track databases across servers in a cluster and receive a list of the databases that includes details such as on which severs the databases exist, and whether or not (1) cluster replication is enabled, (2) the database size is within acceptable limits from the average database size, and (3) the document count is within acceptable limits from the average document count for each database. The data is collected on a daily basis and is presented in graphical format, helping administrators to identify the issues at a database level and to take the necessary corrective/preventive actions, and to track the changes for each database in a timely manner.

CONFIGURING AND TESTING THE IBM LOTUS DOMINO DAOS FEATURE
Introduced in IBM Lotus Domino 8.5, the Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) feature allows attachments to be stored outside the NSF file in Notes Large Object (NLO) files. This provides two major benefits in that it: Allows multiple copies of the same attachment to be stored as a single copy to save storage. Segregates the relatively static attachment data from the NSF data, allowing flexibility in data storage and backup processing.

USING NOTESPEEK TO VIEW AND EXPORT INFORMATION FROM IBM LOTUS NOTES DATABASES
This article will take you step by step through using Notespeek, a free utility from IBM Support than can help you in troubleshooting issues, or help prepare data for sending to IBM for analysis. For purposes of demonstration, we'll look at exporting the data in a user's calendar profile to a text file. What is NotesPeek? Its a tool that allows us and you to see hidden elements of a file or document. You can export the data for analysis.

THE NEW IBM LOTUS NOTES 8 OUT OF OFFICE FUNCTIONALITY
The Out of Office functionality is one of the most widely used features of the IBM Lotus Notes mail template. This functionality has been completely re-written for IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8, and in this article, we examine the changes in this feature, compare the new feature set to the old one, and discuss why and when you may want to use the earlier functionality rather than the new one. In current versions of Lotus Notes (release 7.x and earlier), the Out of Office functionality is managed by a LotusScript agent native to the Notes mail template. In Lotus Notes and Domino 8, the enhanced LotusScript agent still exists in the Notes mail template for backward compatibility. In addition, the mail router has new functionality called the Out of Office service that offers the same functionality as the agent.

How IBM Influences the Dow
Investors might not realize how skewed the Dow is toward certain components. Thanks to the Dow's price-weighted methodology, IBM has the highest weighting of any stock. Its price changes move the Dow almost double the next highest company. In fact, IBM is weighted in the Dow more than Microsoft, HP, Intel, Cisco, Verizon, and AT&T combined. That's more influential than all other tech and telecom stocks! To see Eric's analysis of what IBM's weighting means for investors and ways to broaden your exposure to other tech companies, check out the video.
