The 400th Anniversary of Quebec city

The 400th Anniversary of Quebec city is underway. Come in Quebec city

Look at all the activities-- Link

Especially the Image mill, look at the Slideshow
the first test : Link

The Image Mill is a sort of animated mosaic that, moving from engravings to paintings and from photos to videos, creates an impressionistic portrait of the city over time. The work will consist of four movements corresponding to the city’s four centuries of history: waterways, the age of exploration and discovery; road building, clearing and developing the land; the railroad and industrial expansion; and finally, the age of air travel and the development of communications

The production will draw on all the technological expertise and experience that Ex Machina brings to the integration of images to the narrative.

These 81 silos measure 600 metres long by 30 metres high. Twenty-seven video projectors, 20,000 lumens each, will project millions of pixels onto Bunge’s south and west façades. With 238 spotlights, 203 of which are DEL, and 329 speakers in place, the audience will be able to see the show from several viewpoints: from the Château Frontenac to the Marie-Guyard building, from the ramparts to the Louise Basin piers, Espace 400e and the south shore of the St. Lawrence River.

Troubleshooting memory leaks with 'show memory allocated'

While using trapleaks you can use a console command to show the allocated memory. It will show the allocated per-process memory and the allocated shared memory allocated in IBM Lotus Domino.

This command is used to track potential memory leaks on demand without requiring the server to be shut down. Note that blocks reported by this command are not guaranteed to be leaks, but show what blocks of a given block type are allocated at any given time. To confirm possible leaks, the server will need to be shutdown to invoke trapleaks debug.

Email archiving -Should we use quotas too?


I'm currently working on the deployment of Symantec Enterprise Vault. I've suggested to my client to use quotas on mail files. He told me, why we use archiving , so our mail files will be smaller.

My point is that the system will archive every pieces of crap (Personal MP3, Movies, things not related to work). With quotas, peoples would have to say: mmmmmm, do I have to keep this.

What do you think? Should be remove every quotas?

Thank you,

How to Set Up a Notes Client without User Intervention Using a Scriptable Setup

Have you ever used this feature? Technote : 1112835


I think it's working well. I've used it for two of my clients and the ROI is very important
In my case, the user's DATA\ are located on a network drive so it's easy to configure those Notes clients.
I send NTF, Images, UserID, ini in the personal network . With the current user's info, i populate the Setup file
While in my script, the archive database is created
At the end , a welcome message is sent to the new users.
They can click a button to completely finich the setup
Total Elapse time, approx 1minute per user

When you start you Notes client, you only have the message Notes configuration finished

No more Next button!

This document contains a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and details about the Lotus Notes®/Lotus Domino® 8.x Mail "Inbox Maintenance" feature, also sometimes referred to as the "Inbox Cleanup" feature.


When removing user from Domino, there is no way to remove or reassign their reservations

If you delete a user from the Lotus® Domino® Directory, reservations the user has made in the Domino Resource Reservations database will remain the same (that is, they will stay reserved by that user). There is no way to automatically transfer the reservations to another user (chairperson) or delete the reservations.
