Wow! Just… wow! There are some GREAT SESSIONS at Lotusphere 2012! The speaker list is ‘off the hook’ as well! (I tried by submitting a session or two, but wasn’t picked… based on what they are going to see at #LS12, they won’t miss me!)

I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before we see Ben Langhinriches from Genii Software and Tim Davis of the Turtle Partnership release the ultra awesome Lotusphere Sessions application for Lotus Notes and mobile devices. (It sounds like they’re going to supercharge it for 2012… can’t wait!)
I wish I could take credit for this, but this one comes from my colleague, Phil Nocerini. Check out what’s rattling around in his warped head at http://nocerini.tumblr.com – Now, on with the tip:
We have a Lotus Notes user that is using a 3rd party mobile client to work with their mail and calendar. This 3rd party mobile client (to remain unnamed) always keeps a copy of any sent item in ‘Sent’. This cannot be changed for just one person, but this person wants items in their sent deleted. Phil wrote some quick code that would run on the mail file once an hour, and would delete the sent item using the Remove method, so that the items go into the Trash, instead of being directly removed from the mail file. This will remove the message from the ‘unnamed 3rd party app’ on the Smartphone as well. (In the ‘unnamed 3rd party app’, if the message is hard deleted, the message headers will not be removed from the app. Here’s the code:
Agent Sent View Purge
Created Nov 22, 2011 by Philip J Nocerini
Description: Comments for Agent
Dim s As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim view As NotesView
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Dim nextdoc As NotesDocument
Set db = s.CurrentDatabase
Set view = db.GetView(“$Sent“)
Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
While Not ( doc Is Nothing )
Set nextdoc = view.getnextdocument(doc)
‘ the sample code from IBM purges documents after 30 days. CMA’s requirement is to
‘ purge documents immediately by sending them to the trash- PJN
Set doc = nextdoc
Simple and clean!

This will go FAST! You can thank me by buying me one as a gift!
Man, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these…
I got this tip from my colleague, Keith. Thanks for the tip!
Most of us have created replicas of databases before; sometimes the unread marks are synchronized, and sometimes they aren’t. An analyst from Lotus recently showed me a cool trick for pushing the unread marks from one replica to another.
1. You must first un-stack icons for this to work. After that is done, locate the two databases on the workspace:
2. Click on the ‘source’ database first. This is the replica that contains the desired unread marks set.
3. Press and hold the Shift key, then click on your ‘destination’ database. This is the replica with the bad set of unread marks.
4. Finally, click EDIT – UNREAD MARKS – EXCHANGE UNREAD MARKS
5. The ‘destination’ database should now have the same unread count as the ‘source’. More importantly, the unread marks in any given folder should match up.
**Important Note: Whichever replica you click first will be the ‘source’ database. Make sure that you select the correct icon first!
First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you (even those of you not reading this)! I am thankful for my family (especially my wife and my mother) and I’m thankful for all of my friends!
Second, welcome back to the revamped version of The Pridelands! As you can see, like a few other people around (special thanks to Mitch Cohen and Matt White for many of the tools and instructions I’ve used), I’ve left the comfort zone (but slightly feature lacking) Blogsphere and went to WordPress. I still have a lot of work to do, but didn’t want to wait anymore. This has been a project for some time (when I had time).
It was a hard decision to move… I want to thank Declan Lynch for the Blogsphere template that helped me in many, many ways. I wanted to to add a few features that the template didn’t have, I wanted to be a bit more consistent with other blogs I’m running, and I wanted to learn a few more things, so it necessitated this move.
As I move forward, I’ve got to convince PlanetLotus that I’ll be around for the long haul. Hopefully, I can be allowed back into the feed aggregator, and you’ll start to see a lot more of me.
Until then, HAKUNA MATATA… and GO LIONS!!!

Tonight was Crazy Pizza Night, and Jennifer outdid herself! We had pizza with pepperoni and bacon (for the kids… not crazy), but then she made a coney dog pizza and pumpkin spice pizza (with real pumpkin)… It wasn’t EpicMealTime (check it out on YouTube), but it was SO GOOD! Outstanding job, honey!
