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

I finally found time to put together two examples of "Fancy tricks" to do with Exciton Boost's REST API, and it is Friday afternoon, so I don't want to post it and have nobody notice. I'll post that Sunday night or Monday morning, but for now, let me leave you with a simple challenge. How would you use Domino Access Services or other HCL code to take the multiple rich text fields above and turn them into a sorted JSON array of strings for all the bullet values? It can obviously be done, but probably not as simply and elegantly as with Exciton. It took me about a minute to write out the request for this and far less than a second to get the following result. I'll show the request along with my post on Monday.
