Migrate quickr places to Notes

Although the latest version of Quickr has great improvements, we didnot see enough adoption of the tool throughout our company to justify keeping the server running at the moment.
I will not go into the reasons for lack of adoption here.

For a couple of the places we had to come up with a solution to preserve the information stored in them. We decided that a Notes 8.5.x Discussion database would be the best fit.

For those that are facing the same issue I added the agent in a rich text file for download. It contains the agent I created to do this migration. It may be a bit rough around the edges, but it does the job and you can fine tune it where you like.


Note: the agent uses OpenLog, please include this library in your database or set the lines for OpenLog to comment.

LotusSquash - thursday 9 december 18:00hrs

"LotusSquash". What is it? Simple, playing squash with other Lotus geeks (it started last year via twitter by @zonderpoeha and @drenth). You can see it as a friendly training session open for players of all levels and Lotus geeks of all levels.
It is also an alternative, nice and sporty way of networking and chatting about IBM Lotus stuff. Afterwards there is the option to have a meal somewhere, but not mandatory of course.
From now on we aim to make it a quarterly event. Watch for updates via twitter.
Let us know if you want to join via twitter or post a comment here.
