That is awesome. I'd say that goes a long way towards proving your importance to the Notes/Domino community. ;-)

Thanks. I'm not sure about it proving anything, but it is fun to see.

Thats cool!

For an individual who is looking for change and is not aware about Midas, this may not sound too exicting.

On the other hand, you must feel very proud seeing Midas becoming kind of a add-on skillset for filtering resumes. Something like "We are looking for Lotus Notes Developers. Experience on LEI will be a plus point".

Congrats again.

My best wishes!!

Heck yes. They have many, many servers with Midas and quite a few clients as well, both a large concentration in the US and various scattered throughout the world. One of my bigger customers, although not close to the biggest.
