Lotus Notes Sucks

The workplace is getting rid of Lotus Notes - good for them! Soon I will begin complaining about Outlook. In the meantime I am grateful for these email exporting scripts, which so far work well and should allow me to sidestep the workplace's complaints about the size of my in-box (I do a lotta scanning and need to mail and remail that stuff everywhere).

So they're abandoning twenty year old technology for TEN year old technology. Thank heavens for that.

Welcome to the nineties, Subster!

If there's one computer-related thing that you could have said that would sound more quaint than "Lotus Notes," and it couldn't involve "COBOL" or "punched cards," it would have to be "the workplace's complaints about the size of my in-box."

My sympathies. I hope your workplace has redeeming qualities.

Jesus Christ, Lotus Notes?

Seriously. There just isn't a reason to delete a one-sentence email. If it's a bunch of forwarded Austrian Death Machine mp3s that's another thing, but it can be taken up under The Social Good.

Ah, nostalgia. When I first graduated from working solo to hiring people, circa 1993, I struggled with how to create electronic resources. In 1995, I stumbled over Notes and swore by it for three years - it was relatively easy to set up, I actually understood the scripting language, and (mot importantly) I could have full copies of my databases at home and sync over a 56K modem.
