It's amazing how coding one cool hack can make your day...
So we've been working long and hard to implement a Google Search device that interacts with a number of Notes/Domino applications. Not to go into much detail, but suffice it to say there have been a number of "challenges", mostly on the Google side. But tomorrow we go live, and it looks to be something that will greatly improve the search capabilities on these particular applications.
Thus, "the hack".
I realize that's Notes Programming 101 stuff, but we've had so many other things going on that I hadn't really had the chance to eliminate myself from the process of switchover. No longer will there be plans to get ETA of resolution, time limits on how long I have to get the modifications into production to point to Domino, then the process to get stuff back to Google, etc. Just "let's switch", and BAM! It's there...
It's so nice to know that we always have the fallback position available in an instant, and that my presence is not required to make it all work. Plus it's a huge security blanket to the business side knowing they won't have any search outages where *no* options are available.
Couple that with finally getting a long-running private view/folder issue fixed for someone today, and I'm feeling pretty good about things (nerd score notwithstanding...)
