Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Today, Genii Software is releasing a new product, @Midas Lookups, which will be free for use by anyone in the community.  (Those who have been watching Genii Software for a few years will recognize this product as an updated subset of the @Midas Formulas.)  The product is available today for Windows 32-bit and Windows 64-bit, and we anticipate release of support for AIX and Linux within about a week.

@Midas Lookups allow the developer to treat rich text data as tabular data, accessible just as views are using @DbColumn and @DbLookup.  There is no registration, just a free download, although we would love to hear stories about how you use the product.  See the help, download the software and download a sample database, all on one page:  @Midas Lookups.

In addition, we are having a contest during the month of June to see who can come up with the most creative and useful formulas or applications.  Details of the contest will be posted later today, but download a copy and start thinking about how you could use this functionality in computed text on a webpage, in an action formula, in validation of rich text, used with @Do and @Transform, in xPages, etc.  Valuable and unique prizes for the top three ideas.  But first, you need the software.

As a reminder, there is no official support provided.  If you company needs official support, let me know and I'll see what we can arrange (on a paid basis, obviously).  Otherwise, go forth and enjoy.
