The work from home dilemna
Wed, Oct 17th 2012 10:09a Amy Hoerle Over the past few weeks I have talked to a number of people about working from home. When the conversation starts it is interesting to hear the range of opinions on the matter. I've heard everything from "I'd LOVE to be able to work from home" to "I could never work at home every day". I'm guessing that most of us that do it or have done it fall somewhere in the middle. There are certainly advantages to being at home. Need an extra load of laundry done? Start a load during [read] Keywords: consulting
Why a recommended minimum size of 1MB for DAOS on IBM i?
Thu, Jun 14th 2012 1:11p Amy Hoerle If you review the DAOS best practices you will find that IBM recommends a minimum file size of 1MB when implementing DAOS on IBM i. Why 1MB on IBM i and not on Windows, Linux, etc? What is the difference here? I have been asked these questions on a frequent basis so I thought, let’s talk about it! In this post you will find some of the reasons why this decision was made from someone who was working with the lab at the time the decision was made.

My Journey into Domino 8.5.3 and Relational Database access from XPages - Now a .pdf
Thu, Nov 10th 2011 9:11a Amy Hoerle I was horrified this morning to realize that a large chunk out of the blog article I posted was missing. It sure looked fine last night! After trying 3-4 times today and each time having the server truncate the article in a different way I realized that I must be hitting some type of maximum with my previous blog post. Thus, for those of you who want to use the article to set things up on your servers I have created a .pdf file for you to download that is complete will all of the images.

What is success?
Thu, Oct 6th 2011 8:10a Amy Hoerle For most of my life I have equated professional success with getting a raise, promotion or more responsibility. I also have assumed that the more successful a person is the happier they are. But, is that really it? Does more money really = success + happiness? This week I was able to spend time with a number of old friends, customers and new friends at the COMMON user group conference. Observing and listening I couldn't help but see so many happy people. It also got me thinking. Do I r [read] Keywords: ibm
A new XPages website
Tue, Aug 23rd 2011 2:59p Amy Hoerle A few months ago I decided to start learning XPages. I had read the hype and wanted my turn to give it a try. Taking off the "administration" hat and putting on the "developer" hat was a bit scary at times. However; it has been personally rewarding to try something new. While I have many more ideas and things I want to try - the basics of my project are done and can be seen at http://www.kimgreene.com. It is both terrifying and rewarding to have my work on display for the whole world to [read] Keywords: administration
Reflections on Change
Thu, May 12th 2011 2:39p Amy Hoerle I don't know about you, but lately my life has been filled with "change". In fact you could say it has dominated many conversations over the past few months as I have contemplated by future. I have witnessed those who work extremely hard to ensure that nothing changes while others like myself seem get restless as soon as things have been the same too long. But change can be good, right? It can mean you are learning, growing, moving forward or taking a chance. As for me, ending a 1 [read] Keywords: ibm
