Best Practice Makes Perfect

A collaboration with Domino developers about how to do it and how to get it right in Domino

Just published in the Domino Designer wiki, my article on selectively controlling printing in the Notes client.  Hope you find it useful.

I work from home, and my work has been interrupted a lot recently with phone calls from people telling me how I should vote.  I have a new system for deciding who I'm going to vote for. I keep a tally of who's calling. Whoever calls me least gets my vote, provided they're not an obvious white supremacist or child molester or in jail. I also take into account who tells the most lies about their opponents, though that's harder for me to find out about because I don't watch TV, and promptly recycle all the flyers they mail me, mostly unread.  Still, when something like, "So and so's political allies voted 20 times against blah blah" (emphasis added) catches my eye, I take note of the sender as having both great desperation, and zero respect for the intelligence of the voters.  That's really reaching.

There's a flaw in your system. You can't know if they're telling the truth about which candidate they're calling on behalf of.

Anyhow, you don't live in my calling area so I'm not worried ;-)

Yeah - the party flacks know that most people are annoyed by the constant calls, so they pose as "the other guy" to annoy you.

Just hang up on the people who call, from wherever they call from. If more people just hung up the phone before the caller can identify who the candidate is, there would be a lot less calls.

Thanks Tim. I looked all over the place for the article and couldn't find it. (Having clicked the link and going back to the main page, I can now see it has a different title than what I expected.)
