In this episode, which concludes the NotesIn9 100,000 views celebration event , a very special guest, Tim Tripcony comes on the show to talk about how to use themes to control your field layout inside the Application Layout Control.
Tomorrow I’m going to Las Vegas with friends for a little vacation. I had planned to queue up 2 more shows to finish up the NotesIn9 100,000 video celebration. I wanted to make tomorrow the first ever double feature day. Unfortunately that’s not going to happen.
Apparently I was a little over active this month and the bad news is I’m now up against my 800MB storage quota and the next show doesn’t fit. That’s never happened before. I don’t think I ever saw it hit red before. The good news is it’s a rolling 30 days, so hopefully some space will free up by the time I get back. The bad news is that it’s Vegas and I might not know who I am when/if I get back.
Anyway – stay tuned. A great show coming from John Jardin on using XPages with JDBC and Relational Databases. There’s also an amazing brand new surprise contributor on deck as well.
The NotesIn9 100,000 Celebration continues! Last week saw three new shows and I also recorded an X-Cast Podcast due out soon. I have 2 more shows coming to cap off this huge milestone.
In this show I take a brief look at a couple of different topics. First I talk about the Extension Library and the Upgrade Pack and what I personally perceive to be differences betwen the two.
Then for the Demo, I talk about several different ext. library controls. The focus is on Field Layout Controls like “Form Table”, “Form Layout Row”, and “Form Layout Column”. But to get to that point I first touch on the App Layout control and the Navigator. I hope you like it.
For more information on App Layout control Steve Pridemore did a great show on it in episode 42.
In this episode I take a look at how you can use an XAgent to track any file this is downloaded or link that is clicked on your website.
At one Point in the show I mention “Thomas Bahn” and that should have been “Thomas Gumz”. Sorry for the mix up!
Prior to the Demo there’s an important service message for the Kennedy Kreiger Institute. They are directly involved in crucial care for Matt Reimer as discussed in a post by Rob Novak. The program that benefits Matt is having it’s funding significantly reduced. Here is an article about Matt and the funding issue.
I would only ask that if NotesIn9 has ever benefitted you, maybe you would consider donating to this worthy cause.

Thank you for the consideration!
NotesIn9 Week Continues!
In this show I take another look at Source control in Domino Designer. I feel it’s an EXTREMELY important topic. There will hopefully more more shows coming as well.
In this show I talk more about the servers to hold your repository. We take a quick look back at Declan Lynch’s server that I demo’d in Episode 41 , and then I show how you might go about getting the information needed to build your own internal server.
Finally I take a long look at a hosted server called bitbucket.org. They can host your repositories, have free plans, and are at least a little bit XPAGES FRIENDLY!!! Woo Hoo!!!
In this show I take a brief look at Domino Designer and go over some enhancements that I’ve learned from some true experts, Paul Calhoun and Nathan Freeman. I’ll show how to check out and improve Designer’s memory usage and even make your XPages XML source code easier to read.
Here is the link to Nathan’s blog post detailing many Designer tweaks.
I just wanted to mention that sometime last week NotesIn9 passed 100,000 total video plays/downloads of videos!
Of course that’s not unique users… people watch the same show more then once, but still I think it’s a really good number showing growing interest in XPages technology.
Anyway – I’m very pleased at the interest in my little show. When I started this in the summer of 2009 I never thought it would go this far. And I certainly couldn’t have done it without the awesome help from my growing list of contributors. These people are the true XPages experts and I’m very happy that they’ve come on the show to share their talents and tips.
My most popular show continues to be my original XPages Jumpstart video. A 73 minute session that I originally presented at some user groups. That show is been viewed / download over 8,500 times itself!!
There’s a lot more to come for NotesIn9.
– I’m investigating getting the shows transcribed or maybe even closed captioned/subtitled to help people where english is not their first language.
– I’m desperately trying to do some things to improve my website and consolidate XPages.TV and XPagesCheatSheet.com into NotesIn9 to try and make things easier to find.
– I’ve got some more great contributors coming on soon if all goes well.
– I also have a bunch of my own shows in the queue that I want to try and get to.
So needless to say, NotesIn9 will keep going and hopefully serve up another 100,00 in less time!
I really must thank Chris Miller and his Spiked Studio Productions for supporting NotesIn9 with wordpress hosting and advice. He came to me very early on and gave me some help when I really needed it.
I also want to thank Jeremy Hodge and his ZetaOne company for creating my logos and assistance with other aspects of the show.
And I especially want to thank everyone for watching and for any comments and emails. I really appreciate them!
In celebration of this event there will be some new shows out next week.
