Error with Notes Traveler To Do app on iOS – Fix coming, but workaround available

There was a issue reported to me by a very important colleague related to the To Do app running on his iPhone. When he tried to sync between the Traveler server and his device, he got this error:

ErrorOniOSToDoApp

After a quick call to IBM Support, I was given my answer:

There is a recently discovered problem in the ToDo app that causes HTTP requests to be malformed when the server redirects the requests.  A fix will be published to the App Store, however, it may take 1-2 weeks to appear.  In the meantime, the customer can avoid the issue by instructing the affected users to modify their account settings in the ToDo app.  In the space reserved for the server
name, please use company.com/traveler instead of company.com, for example.  This will avoid the HTTP redirects which trigger the problem and should allow the device to sync normally.

A quick fix, with a more permanent one coming… Well done, IBM!!!

Announcing the 2014 IBM Champions – I’m honored to be selected!

IBMchampion

They announced the 2014 IBM Champions for ICS this morning, but I wasn’t in my email yet when a colleague came by and congratulated me. Sure enough, as I looked at the list, I could not believe it… I WAS CHOSEN AS AN IBM CHAMPION!

Never in my wildest dreams would I think I would be on the same list as many of those that have been and currently are IBM Champions! I consider all of them as legends and heroes in this space.

I was honored to be nominated, and even more honored to be selected. Thank you to those of you that nominated me, and I hope to live up to the honor. Congratulations to to all of you (past and present) who have been selected.

I hope to see you all at IBM Connect 2014!

If you haven’t done so yet, go to http://ibm.co/nominatechampion and nominate someone today. You can nominate more than one person, and yes, you can nominate yourself.

On IdeaJam.net – Support Fingerprint ID system (Touch ID) as a device security method in IBM Notes Traveler

ideajam_logoOn IdeaJam.net, I posted an idea about using their Fingerprint ID system (which Apple calls ‘Touch ID security’) as a supported ‘device password’ when setting up an IBM Notes Traveler policy. Take a look and promote this idea here.

Heading to MWLUG 2013? Don’t forget your best homebrew or favorite local brewery’s beer!

It’s not too late to sign up for MWLUG 2013, the Midwest ‘Lotus’ User Group Conference, in Indianapolis. Register HERE now!!!

One of my ‘brothers in beer’, Gregg Eldred, was scheduled to coordinate a new event this year, but due to scheduling/work conflicts, it’s been passed along to me. This gives you an opportunity to show your homebrewing skills! You don’t make your own beer? Why not? Seriously, if you have a beer from a microbrewery/brewpub by your house that you think is awesome, that will count also! Bring some to MWLUG 2o13 and compete. Here is the information from the website:

MWLUG 2013 Charity Brewfest Competition

04:00 PM – 06:00 PM – Conrad Room

Do you think you have created a great home brew or wine!!! Do you think your local micro-brewery beer is out of this world!!! Then bring them with you to MWLUG 2013 and lets find out.

We are happy to announce the MWLUG 2013 Charity Brewfest Competition. It will be held on Wednesday August 21, 2013 4:00 PM just before the MWLUG Wednesday Exhibitor Showcase Reception. This competition is open for all attendees. We would like to thank our sponsor CDW for making this event possible.

Ray Bilyk and his panel of experienced judges will taste the different entries and select the winners of this competition. [Original organizer] Gregg [Eldred] has selected some interesting prizes for this competition.

In order to participate in this competition, the submission fee is $10 with all proceeds benefiting the MWLUG Oklahoma Tornado Relief Fund. You can submit as many entries as you would like. For each entry, please bring at least two 12 ounce bottles. All competitors will need to sign a waiver. All nationally distributed micro-brewery beer do not qualify. Registration for this event will be on Wednesday.

For every dollar that we raise in this event, our sponsor Phora Group will match a dollar. We are working with other sponsors for additional matching funds that will all benefit the Oklahoma residences that have been devastated by the recent horrific tornadoes.

Thank you to CDW and Phora Group for sponsoring and matching funds raised from this event! Thank you also to organizer Richard Moy for trusting me with this. I hope to live up to the high standards that Gregg set. Thanks also to Gregg Eldred for getting the prize for the big winner.

Hope to see you all there… Cheers!

Weird issue printing from Lotus Notes (with resolution)

Got a weird one at work today…

User was reporting that when they tried to print certain mail messages in Lotus Notes (on Windows), the client would close or crash. After upgrading the client and reinstalling the client, I finally got some support files over to IBM.

They came back with what seems to be a simple fix:
Add BrowserRenderPrintNotes=1 to the user’s NOTES.INI file

This tells Notes to use the Notes print dialog box for messages instead of passing off the print dialog to the browser. It seems to happen with messages that includes MIME/HTML. I found a reference to it here: IBM Technote – Windows Print dialog opens instead of Notes Print dialog when trying to print external message (Technote #1291150).

This seems to be working fine so far. Not sure why it just started happening…
