The usefulness and utility of Notes browser plug-in - promised for 8.5.4 around the end of 2012
   

Sorry for the long time between posts. I've been working on things most of you wouldn't be interested in, and with other social media outlets better suited to the day to day trivialities, I've wanted to keep this blog for things less quotidian. I've also been spending almost no time keeping up with what we call the "Yellowverse". I keep half an eye out through friends in the community but mostly I rely on them to tip me when something really interesting is happening. I'm happier staying out of the rest of t.....

Changing what I do at the Fire Department
Sun, Feb 9th 2014 9:40a   Andrew Pollack
So, here’s a bit of a change. A couple of weeks ago I let the chief know that it was time for me to step down as the Lieutenant of our Engine 1. Once a replacement is chosen, I’ll still be a firefighter but won’t be an officer any longer. There are a number of reasons for this, but the best explanation I can give is that it is time to let someone else grow into that role and make their own contribution, while at the same time I’ve got plenty of other things going on that keep me from put [read] Keywords:

Sochi Olympics Pub Chat - Now Open
Thu, Feb 6th 2014 2:46p   Andrew Pollack
As in years past, I've created a group Skype chat room for anyone who wants to use it while watching the Olympics. We've had fun with this in the past, as long as nobody takes it too seriously. Here's a link: skype:?chat&blob=1-XgYKMLG_kK5fqEsq4t4Jd4GLxHZxbMIqSYtCRXS9DiF5WNjBtuljOtcSDqaGdkOv5mX6paJQSuNuI A few recommendations: 1. Definitely use the skype command '/alertsoff' so when you're not watching you won't get bugged by the rest of us. Don't bother trying to keep up or going ba [read] Keywords: skype

Question for mobile app developers - what development platform do you recommend?
Wed, Feb 5th 2014 12:20p   Andrew Pollack
I've got a need to build a couple of mobile apps, and I'm looking for platform recommendations. Here are the things that are important to me: 1. I prefer a true, compiled app -- not a wrapper around a web page, and not a PaaS (Platform as a Service) 2. I'd like to develop once and deploy on both Android and IOS, but but that's not a show stopper. The more I can share between the two the better though. 3. I'd like to have built in support for web services -- so that if I drop some WSDL on th [read] Keywords: development mobile

Are you using a Surface Pro 2 or another Windows 8.1 Tablet? Want to use Traveler on the touch screen? It works!
Mon, Feb 3rd 2014 11:57a   Andrew Pollack
While I like many things about the Surface Pro 2, when I'm using it as a tablet without the keyboard it is almost impossible for me to use the Desktop client for Notes. The touch spots are just too small. Microsoft provides a nice little Mail, Calendar, and Contact app (that seems a lot like Traveler on Android) meant for interaction with the touch screen, so I thought I'd see about getting it to work. [] First of all, make sure you're running the very latest version of the Domino Server and [read] Keywords: domino notes traveler desktop microsoft server

Some thoughts from IBM Connect 2014
Mon, Feb 3rd 2014 9:31a   Andrew Pollack
My participation was limited this year. I did get to see the Opening General Session, and to spend time on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday talking with many of my favorite IBM developers and product managers. My limited participation was simply because I had chosen not to submit a presentation proposal – and for me, sitting in sessions has never been a priority so I’ve opted to spend my travel budget on “Engage” and some of the other “LUGs” this year. That said, here are some th [read] Keywords: ibm lotus

Understanding the decision behind Connections Mail
Tue, Jan 28th 2014 7:30a   Andrew Pollack
So IBM has announced and shown mail in Connection. Why? This one's easy. For the last few years the reseller channel has been hearing a near constant drumbeat of promises about one feature or another in Connections "that will really drive utilization". Translated, this is saying that although our big customers have used their license entitlements to deploy connections all over the place, actual desktop users are not going there unless they have to. Even with the nonsense of "gamification" t [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm desktop

Snap Review - Microsoft Surface Pro 2 - Tablet, Laptop Replacement, or Both
Sun, Jan 19th 2014 6:20p   Andrew Pollack
I'm trying something new next week as I head to Orlando for a few days. I'm leaving my laptop at home. I haven't travelled anywhere without a fully functioning laptop in twenty years but I'm going to do it next week. Instead, I'm just bringing a tablet...and some accessories. My new Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is the size of a tablet, works like a tablet, looks like a tablet, and has all the power of a full sized laptop. It can run all my software and do all of the things my Thinkpad T510 can d [read] Keywords: domino laptop microsoft

You Need to Wish Gab Davis a Happy Birthday Today

[] Today is Gab Davis's birthday.

To connect or not to connect
Mon, Oct 14th 2013 4:40p   Andrew Pollack
I am considering a change in my earlier decision to skip "Connect" this year, and instead submit a session proposal around SAML and other Single Sign-On techniques and technologies. I've done a lot of work with this and written my own SAML stack for Domino at one point, so I do have the information. I'm curious to hear (privately) any thoughts anyone in my Yellowsphere crowd thinks about this as I've not yet made my decisions. I'm still a more than bit angry about last year, but I realize [read] Keywords: domino lotus
