Be Twice As Productive With Notes

Are you sick of waiting for Notes to respond ? Use two Notes clients on
your workstation !
You maybe know that you can install two different Notes versions (for
example R4 and R5) on your windows workstation. Just by keeping the
Notes.ini files separate by creating a short cut like :
c:\notes\notes.exe =c:\path\notesr4.ini and a short cut like
"c:\notesr5\notes.exe =c:\path\notesr5.ini
You can take this technic a step further to run two Notes applications of
1 installation simultaneously by using the NLNOTES.exe file in your notes
program directory.
1. Create a new data directory (example: c:\notes\data2) with a copy of
your and names.nsf
2. Create two separate Notes.ini files (notes.ini and notes2.ini)
3. Specify in the notes2.ini your second data directory
4. Adjust you existing Notes shortcut like c:\notes\notes.exe
5. Now the trivial part: Create a shortcut like c:\notes\nlnotes.exe
Start the first short cut, minimize the window and click the second short
cut. You now run two Notes applications simultaneously !
