Setting a preferred browser in Lotus Notes
Authored by: yellow on Nov 10, '04 03:21:03PM

For anyone that might run into the same problem as me..

The link above is gone, no longer avilable. You can create a simple Applescript that will do this with:

on run URL
tell application "Safari"
open location URL
end tell
end run

Save it as a "Script". It will then run no matter what. But it WILL open the Script Editor (annoying, I know). If you save it as an Application I think you will find that you have to remove all other applescripts from Mac to make it run the right one when called from Notes (hatehatehatehatehatehate). It's stupid.

Well, turns out the script doesn't do anything. Just like the TextEdit trick, Script Editor just passes the URL along to an application that can use it.

However, it works, and I couldn't get an RTF document to do the same thing. So, now I have script editor open all of the time. How retarded is that?

Note is really an amazing piece of crap. I'm just stunned by it every time I use it.

Off-topic - Notes and
Authored by: geoffsaulnier on Jun 20, '05 03:47:33AM

SO, my wife finally allowed me to buy a PowerBook... I took it in to work to abuse the superfast LAN connection to download all the stuff I wanted and do all the software updates, etc. Whiles on the work LAN, I found that it plays quite nicely with our Windows/Unix world there - no surprises... One thing I can't figure out, though, is if it is possible to get to read our Lotus Notes mail served up by Domino... Has anyone done this? Note that I have no control over the mail server.

Also, as an aside, the Network bit of the Finder doesn't see any of our Windows servers, etc, and Go To Server can't seem to connect either. DOH!
