I just wanted to take a minute to thank Nathan Freeman for a set of articles that he wrote about creating a fluid UI, rounded corners and using gradients. Nathan’s and Chris’s websites and LotusPhere 2007 session also showed me about using layers to display additional information about information in a form or for additional controls, etc. So Thanks Nathan and Chris for all the information you put out about creating better user interfaces. Hopefully I will be able to use some of your techniques to improve the applications I develop. They have certainly made me be more aware of how the applications I develop look and flow. I don’t really

Here’s a quote I read this morning. This is how I imagine Duffbert’s collection. Books to the ceiling,/ Books to the sky,/ My pile of books is a mile high./ How I love them! How I need them!/ I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them.– Arnold Lobel quote Share This:

The book Lotus Notes Developer’s Toolbox: Tips for Rapid and Successful Deployment by Mark Elliott arrived on my doorstep today. I was one of the editors for the book and my name shows up in the Acknowledgements, it’s the last name there, but it’s there. I know that’s not a big deal for quite a few in the Lotus Blogosphere, but for me, seeing my name in that book was really cool. This is the first book I’ve ever been asked to participate in and I wasn’t so sure to begin with as they asked for some personal information, but after talking with the publisher on the phone and being given

I’ve recently had the need for a new tool to make icons. I stumbled across this tool from Axialis. The ease of creating quality icons is absolutely fabulous and for someone with little to no imagination, like myself, it’s a breeze to create very appealing icons for navigation purposes. The IconWorkshop comes with many different icon shapes and symbols, pretty much everything you’ll need to make an icon. It’s all drag and drop and if there isn’t a symbol that will fit your needs there are free image object packs that you can download to include in your icons. The IconWorkshop will also allow you to turn an image into an
