Wait, I LIKE Domino Web Administrator!

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 12:52:12 -0400

That's just great, instead of just fixing the problem, throw the thing away. Thanks, IBM ...



Tougher than Lotusphere, but not as long

Tue, 6 Aug 2013 00:24:23 -0400

18 years at Lotusphere was an excellent warm-up for wabbit shows ...



Domino can still surprise me

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 00:10:23 -0400

Yeah, I know that XPages is where it's at, but it still surprises me that... ...



Weird JVM errors on the console after upgrading to 8.5.1

Fri, 30 Apr 2010 12:03:17 -0400

Seem to cause no harm, but have you seen these? ...



Twitter hijacks another blogger

Fri, 17 Jul 2009 00:00:00 -0400

Yeah, OK, I admit it... I spend too much time on Twitter and as a result I don't write stuff here. I will fix that.  Seriously. It helps that I think I have finally un-fucked the blog after having to recert my entire domain a couple of months back. I ...



Keep clapping, or she dies

Wed, 25 Feb 2009 23:31:56 -0400

The resemblance between the Lotus world lately and the stage version of "Peter Pan" is amazing sometimes. ...



Still no love for the 8.5 client at work

Tue, 10 Feb 2009 09:52:30 -0400

Yes, I've continued to dork around trying to get the 8.5 client to work.  Yes, it's still broken. ...



Your next market for hosting, SaaS and CMS: Mom and Dad

Thu, 5 Feb 2009 00:02:46 -0400

Forget Fortune 500, they ain't got the numbers, forget SMB, they got no money.  Go see Mom & Pop.  Now. ...



Still grumpy about Notes 8.5

Tue, 3 Feb 2009 23:34:30 -0400

When it runs, 8.5 is cool.  When it doesn't, it's a royal PITA. ...



Steinbagged

Tue, 2 Dec 2008 15:59:50 -0400

Or, what the ITFactory implosion means to you. ...



Still a poor second best

Sat, 1 Nov 2008 21:11:05 -0400

Macs still seem to be an afterthought in the Notes/Domino world, but it is improving.  I think. ...



Big bag of random stuff

Mon, 27 Oct 2008 13:51:25 -0400

A few Domino issues, a few political issues, news from around the house, and a gripe. ...



I continue to be astonished

Tue, 21 Oct 2008 22:08:45 -0400

One of these days, I'll have to tell someone "no."  but in 15 years, it hasn't happened. ...



AllDocsByID, the pseudo view I never knew about

Thu, 18 Sep 2008 17:03:14 -0400

It's a pretty poor day when I don't learn at least one new thing.  So, today's a pretty good day. ...



Mac 8.5b2 install: much improved!

Mon, 1 Sep 2008 13:32:24 -0400

This is just a little short one, as I watch hurricane stuff.  Put the 8.5b2 client up on the MacBook Pro (really the only one I can put it on, since it doesn't support PPC Apples any more).  The install went cleanly and quickly, and unlike 8.5b1, ...



More fixing of servers

Sun, 31 Aug 2008 00:00:00 -0400

Just when I thought I didn't have to fool with the Domino server, I was wrong. ...



Sure, I could be installling 8.5b2, but...

Sat, 30 Aug 2008 16:00:56 -0400

I tend to watch hurricanes very closely, going back to the first time I could watch one start-to-finish on the Weather Channel.  That was probably Hurricane Hugo in 1989.  So, I'll probably spend the weekend watching hurricanes instead of ...



Ah, vendors...

Tue, 5 Aug 2008 21:41:17 -0400

I think my most recent project is going to end up being yet another one of those situations where I just have to figure it out myself. ...



Yeah, I can sympathize with him, some...

Tue, 29 Jul 2008 10:53:06 -0400

If you've done admin for a while, you can probably have some sympathy for the guy in San Francisco. ...



SOLVED: SMTP routing problem on 8.5b1

Mon, 14 Jul 2008 22:44:21 -0400

With the kind help of Sean Burgess and some wits, I can once again send email out through my Domino server. ...



A fix for the Notes 8 crashing at startup

Mon, 7 Jul 2008 14:56:43 -0400

As usual, our systems people won't admit they changed anything, but we've found a workaround for the ND8 client crash I documented last week. ...



Apple, Google and IBM -- why not?

Wed, 2 Jul 2008 10:57:20 -0400

We're at a cusp, and it's very possible that the next great leader in the information technology world won't be one company.  And it won't be Microsoft.  So why not an alliance of Apple, IBM and Google? ...



And the 8.5b1 upgrade has taken place...

Sun, 8 Jun 2008 19:54:04 -0400

Every time I've updated this server, I've had to do it in some weird way.  The 8.0b3-to-8.5b1 update was no exception. ...



A bizarre Notes client crash with pasted Word text

Fri, 6 Jun 2008 13:24:30 -0400

Over the years I've tended to pride myself on the fact that I don't call IBM/Lotus support very often, and when I do, it's for truly bizarre situations.  This... is one of them. ...



Problem with 8.5 beta 1 on Mac OSX... anyone else?

Mon, 2 Jun 2008 10:45:11 -0400

I'd love to be able to talk all about how grand the 8.5 beta Notes client is on Mac OSX, but I can't.  I haven't been able to get it to run yet.  All you Apple people, have you run into this problem? ...



Jeez, these people give me a pain in the ass

Wed, 28 May 2008 10:37:21 -0400

Somewhere, there's a large clock, and it has some sort of recurring alarm set.  When the alarm goes off, regardless of what's going on in the marketplace, the Notes-is-dead people come out of the woodwork, banging their pots and proclaiming the death of ...



The return of Heather Schein, spammer

Wed, 16 Apr 2008 21:33:49 -0400

We chased Heather Schein and DominoNews.com off the old Lnotes-L list some years back.  Today, her scheinitude resurfaced in my inbox.  Some morons never learn. ...



My early days in Notes/Domino

Sat, 5 Apr 2008 22:00:15 -0400

Since other people have been ruminating about how they got involved in the Notes/Domino world back in the days, I guess I should do it, too... ...



Never thought you'd have to diddle with MTUs ever again, did you?

Fri, 4 Apr 2008 17:22:25 -0400

You know, back in the early days of TCP/IP with Windows... say, 1994, we get used to having to fart around with fairly low-level parameters like MTUs, packet fragmentation, TTL, all that.  It's been years since we've had to fool with it in this era when ...

This is completely not funny

Fri, 4 Apr 2008 12:33:51 -0400

And what are those two at the left doing? ...



Is it possible for Passport Advantage to suck any worse than it already does?

Tue, 1 Apr 2008 00:47:23 -0400

Some of you might remember my column in ePro Magazine back in the days, and one column in particular where I tore IBM a new orifice for customer support about the whole topic of "Passport Advantage."  I am delighted to report that seven ...



A major Quickr-related festuche is brewing...

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 15:59:29 -0400

We had an interesting conference call with IBM this morning.  They insisted that support for Quickr atop Domino on Solaris will be ending... well, pretty much last Friday, now that 8.1 is out.  They claim it was "announced around ...



How to explain to non-Domino people how to back up a Domino server.

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 13:56:12 -0400

As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I don't fully control my production Domino servers.  Unfortunately, the people who do... don't seem to understand that backing up Domino is often quite a bit different than anything else they know.  If they ...



The weirdest Notes replication thing I ever had to do

Fri, 28 Mar 2008 00:52:35 -0400

Hark ye back to the days before TCP/IP was blowing in the wind or sniffing your cellphone's farts.  We still had to connect Notes servers. ...



OK, cut the crap

Tue, 25 Mar 2008 20:51:56 -0400

OK, end the pissing contest already.  It's boring and just demeans everybody involved.  You know who you are. ...



Still liking NoteMan after all these years

Mon, 24 Mar 2008 14:47:30 -0400

Jamie Magee slipped me a copy of NoteMan 1.0 years ago at Lotusphere, and all these years later the tool is still pretty much indispensable. ...



Some skunkworks efforts just... stink.

Thu, 20 Mar 2008 12:56:04 -0400

Let me say that I am a big fan of people who see a need for something just taking the initiative and doing it.   What I am not a big fan of is having to explain to people why not all of us have that option all the time and are thus sick of hearing about ...

Do you actually have control over your server?

Mon, 17 Mar 2008 12:34:42 -0400

I have just about had it with the tendency of the powers-that-would-like-to-be at my day job to oversegment administrative and development tasks.  I do everything I can to keep that oversegmentation away from the free-flowing, generalist world I think ...



Something to look out for when updating to 8.01

Mon, 3 Mar 2008 14:03:19 -0400

One of my contractors encountered a fun problem when updating our test server here at my day job to 8.01.  Apparently 8.01's corruption-detection is rather more sensitive than 8.00 or previous versions when it comes to checking for possible corruption in ...



I guess it's time to retire Domino 8b3

Sat, 1 Mar 2008 02:12:18 -0400

The thing I like about Lotus is that going back to 4.5x, even the beta software is solid.  But there are limits. ...



This is screwed: SearchDomino using PlanetLotus to drive traffic.

Thu, 28 Feb 2008 12:11:39 -0400

Pardon me, but I thought this site was to aggregate personal, PUBLIC blogs.  If you haven't noticed, SearchDomino is using it to drive traffic to their site, where in order to read their posts (the latest is an earth-shattering, ground-breaking, ...



I think I gave away too much

Thu, 14 Feb 2008 21:43:49 -0400

Lately I've been handing off so many interesting tasks to my contractors at work that I don't have enough interesting stuff to keep myself amused.  Please don't let this be a sign I'm descending into management, particularly since I don't have the ...



A fool's errand

Mon, 4 Feb 2008 12:12:24 -0400

In a couple of hours, I go into a meeting to try to sum up what my team got out of Lotusphere.  How in the world can I possibly do that??? ...



Chalk up another one for Domino...

Wed, 30 Jan 2008 12:00:53 -0400

My team just showed off a couple of really cool new takes on features that have been in our system for some time.  The turnaround was spectacularly quick, and you already know why. ...



Argh! Mac 8.5 Notes client beta...

Tue, 29 Jan 2008 22:36:04 -0400

Wild Bill kindly gave me the Notes 8.5 beta client for Mac OSX.  The first thing I checked, I was disappointed. ...



How to circulate the Lotusphere slides around?

Tue, 29 Jan 2008 15:41:50 -0400

How badly do you think IBM would bruise my ass if I zipped up all 177 sets of slides from Lotusphere and put them out as a torrent? ...



Lotusphere was amazing. But you already know that.

Mon, 28 Jan 2008 13:42:57 -0400

If you were there, you know this.  If you weren't there, you wish you were.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, skip this one and read about giant wabbits again. ...



Lotusphere is coming very, very soon

Tue, 15 Jan 2008 21:38:40 -0400

And I feel like I'm completely unprepared for it, worse than in any other year.  Yes, I'll go and do everything, but I am just being terrible about writing. ...



Wottapainintheass

Mon, 19 Nov 2007 13:57:49 -0400

Seems like the code you spend the most time on ends up being the least appreciated. ...



Almost time for Gonzo Lotusphere 2008

Fri, 3 Aug 2007 19:58:06 -0400

Yeah, here we are in August, and it's almost time to start ramping up for Lotusphere 2008, and of course the tenth edition of the Gonzo Lotusphere Page.  Expect sizable changes. ...



Let this be a lesson

Sat, 30 Jun 2007 00:15:22 -0400

Don McNally sent me some new code to fix a problem in the ListServ for Domino (LSD) system I'm working on at the OpenNTF site.  As usual, I made a dumbass mistake and learned something. ...



Having trouble commenting? Here's why

Wed, 9 May 2007 01:55:20 -0400

I have to apologize if you've tried commenting on stuff here in recent weeks and have failed.  It ain't me, really... it's my cracker ...

Sorry about the outage

Wed, 13 Dec 2006 16:28:54 -0400

Yeah, it wasn't just you:  the site was offline for several days.  Sorry about that.  I realize how few websites there are in the world, so having mine out of service probably ...



Lots of stuff to catch up on!

Mon, 27 Nov 2006 14:29:00 -0400

I've been off living my life rather than writing about it, but now I'm back, sated with poultry products, and it's time to catch up on ...

Gonzo Lotusphere 2007 is up!

Tue, 29 Aug 2006 15:49:20 -0400

For the tenth straight improbable year, the Totally Unofficial Gonzo Lotusphere Page serves the needs of people attending, or threatening to attend, Lotusphere in Orlando next ...



Saying "yes" is kinda nice

Thu, 8 Jun 2006 10:53:12 -0400

You people already know this, but the degree to which Domino lets you say "yes" when other developers have to say "no" is ...



How did I get to where I am in the Domino world?

Mon, 1 May 2006 16:21:45 -0400

A piece the other day on Rocky Oliver's "LotusGeek" site asked us:  how did you get to where you are in your career of working with ...



Your tax dollars at work

Thu, 30 Mar 2006 15:45:25 -0400

I am currently poking through what I think might be the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen written by a contractor.  Purportedly a Domino app, it... ...



You need to practice

Thu, 16 Mar 2006 16:36:00 -0400

Sometimes I find it amazing how much Domino stuff I forget I know, merely because the thing is so reliable, I don't need to code all the ...



@Command([IntestinalDistress])

Mon, 13 Feb 2006 18:36:48 -0400

I don't know what it is, but there's this one piece of code where, if I work on it, I get rather violent intenstinal cramps.  I'll hope that's a design flaw and not a feature. ...
