To the right To the right... still irreplaceable

Even when your language is read right-to-left as with Hebrew or Arabic and your tabs on your tabbed table are on the right, the text in those tabs have meaning, but when a tabbed table is sent with standard Notes cllient MIME rendering, the tabs are lost along with other relevant features. With CoexLinks Fidelity, you get a rendering which makes sense. See if you can find all the differences (aside from the tabs being missing). You can try CoexLinks Fidelity just by requesting an evaluation lic

I sell software... not judgment
Thu, Apr 16th 2015 12:08p   Ben Langhinrichs
I own a business. I sell software, not judgment. It should hardly need to be said, but in this day and age it seems to be necessary. I will sell my software to anybody with money to buy it, be they gay or straight (cis) or bi or transgender, Muslim or Hindu or Atheist or Christian or Wiccan or Jewish or Druid, tall or short or adverse to relative measurements, in Brazil or Russia or the U.S. or Finland, hyperconservative or bleeding heart liberal, pro-whatever or anti-whatever else.I'm not no

AppsFidelity 3.1 - Attachment icons in Cyrillic
Tue, Apr 14th 2015 1:54p   Ben Langhinrichs
As a follow up to my post on attachment icons in the web-based IBM Discussion database, one customer asked about Cyrillic attachment names and tabbed tables. This brief one minute demo shows those in the standard Discussion database, though AppsFidelity will support the same functionality with both Classic and XPage custom databases. You can try out AppsFidelity 3.1 for yourself. Request an evaluation license today. Best viewed in HD. Closed captions are provided for following in English or im

One of the most requested and most popular features of AppsFidelity is such a small thing, yet difficult enough to manage that IBM has never added it despite customer requests from some very large customers. Simply put, file attachments on the web should show the way they do in Notes, in the place where a user put them. In this very brief demo, I show how AppsFidelity 3.1 not only puts the file icons where they below, it also allows you to edit the document and save it, still preserving this rel

The three questions I have about Verse
Mon, Mar 23rd 2015 10:38a   Ben Langhinrichs
A lot has been written about IBM Verse, positive and negative. Some articles and posts have applauded or derided technical details. Others have focused on social aspects and whether IBM Verse is properly engineered for different sizes and styles of organizations. Still more have focused on the competitive aspects, and whether IBM is capable of going up against Google's Gmail/Google Apps and Microsoft's Office 365. But the questions I have are perhaps higher level. #1) Do those of us in the I

In any language, fidelity matters, especially when the loss of fidelity includes the loss of important information. Even if you don't read German, you can see that the section titles are lost and large amounts of space left in their places with standard Traveler. Note, this is a different issue than the loss of section titles with the Notes client rendering which are totally lost. In this case, they simply don't appear because the text is white on a dark background and the section background i

Colorful road map-ish thing
Thu, Feb 5th 2015 12:10p   Ben Langhinrichs
I thought it might be useful to see a general overview of how the Genii Software products (current and future) work together and overlap. Then, my natural color blindness and lack of UI sensibility struck. I might have also eaten too much leftover pretzels and dip from our Super Bowl party, So, for what it is worth, this is how I see the world. Welcome to my brain. The AppsFidelity part is coming very soon, but tentative marketing-speak blah blah blah at your on risk blah blah blah.

I guess we are Ready

I don't tend to spend much energy on certifications and such. After all, either our products do what you need them to do at a price you can afford, or you don't give a wiggly wombat whether we are business partners or whether our software is certified to zap bugs while it does the dishes. But we have been quietly setting up to support resellers for CoexLinks Fidelity, and it only seems fair to them to have some spiffy IBM certification since they don't have the advantage of my rapier sharp w

The king is dead - long live the king
Thu, Jan 29th 2015 3:00p   Ben Langhinrichs
Paul Withers made an interesting comment to me today on Twitter (see below). Below that, see a portion of a slide from one of these sessions, ID106. Finally, see my video, First Test of Midas in Notes browser plugin recorded, released the first day the browser plugin was available publicly. The interesting thing that these three together point out is that IBM acted as if it could simply kill the king and eliminate the monarchy, but instead just had to replace it with another king.
