Fun with Eclipse Browser Settings in IBM Notes26-12-2013 13:30
Just because we can, you can play around with some settings in IBM Notes on Windows.
Instead of using the Internet Explorer engine to render websites in Notes you can use XULrunner, the engine from the popular Firefox browser.
First check which engine Notes is currently using by opening a browser window within Notes (Open - Web), you may have to check your preferences to use the internal browser. Go to http://www.whatismybrowser.com/
Now edit the file [notesprogramdir]/framework/rcp/plugin_customization.ini and add the two lines: com.ibm.rcp.ui.browser/embeddedBrowser=Mozilla com.ibm.rcp.rte/RTEBasedBrowser=XULRunner
Annoying Scroll-Lock indicator popup on Lenovo Thinkpad with Windows 725-08-2010 08:22
On a Lenovo ThinkPad W510 I had an annoying problem with a popup indicating if the Scoll-Lock key was pressed. That tiny little grey window was popping up in the lower right corner of the screen.
The reason for hating that popus is that in Flightsimulator X the Scroll-Lock key is used to open the ATC window. If you play in DirectX fullscreen mode the screen flickers heavily for several seconds.
I found that the indator is not a Thinkpad feature but part of the Widcomm Bluetooth Stack. No idea why that software is doing this kind of stuff but here is the trick how to disable that indicator popup:
Use your registry editor and change the DWORD for KeyIndication in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General to a value 0. To reenable restore the default value of 1.
