A little magic - sneak preview video
Thu, Jan 22nd 2015 6:51a   Ben Langhinrichs
Many in our community are headed to Florida for ConnectED (the conference formerly known as Lotusphere). Many, unfortunately including me, are not. But happily, there is still a Lotusphere Sessions database (and even more happily, I didn't have to make it). In deference to the shifting conference name, it is called ConnectOsphere 15. But this sneak preview has almost, but not completely, nothing to do with ConnectED. It just so happens that the ConnectOsphere sessions database provides a perf

Notes and Verse shine while GMail and Outlook falter
Mon, Jan 12th 2015 8:40a   Ben Langhinrichs
Granted, I know that IBM Verse is only in beta, but Mitch helped me test to see if the graceful degradation that is needed for both GMail and Outlook is also necessary for IBM Verse.

I was creating a slide show about CoexLinks Fidelity, and thought about using a Venn Diagram to show the expanding opportunity, but thought this might speak to people better.

Graceful degradation or Progressive enhancement
Thu, Jan 8th 2015 8:40a   Ben Langhinrichs
No, I'm not talking about getting older, though my knees are certainly experiencing (graceful?) degradation and my glasses provide progressive enhancement. Instead, I am talking about two ways of viewing the design of complex web content so that the experience is as good as the device or browser or client allows, but does not break if the device or browser or client doesn't support some feature. Since our area of expertise is rendering email from Notes to... anywhere, we face this issue from

CoexLinks Fidelity 3.70 available with support for mobile devices, iNotes and outbound rendering. Try an evaluation license today. What do you have to lose? What are you losing now? Imagine you have sent an email to an employee, Ramona, with a few remaining action items for her to finish. You don't worry about how it will show up, because you are both in the same Notes network, with the same Domino mail server, even. What could go wrong? What could go wrong #1If Ramona reads your email on her

Genii Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CoexLinks Fidelity 3.70, the latest enhancement to its highly regarded coexistence and email fidelity software, now available for Windows and Linux. Along with additional performance and rendering improvements, the major feature is the ability to support rendering when Notes emails are read via mobile device through IBM Notes Traveler and via iNotes on the web or browser. These significantly enhance the value of CoexLinks Fideli

Mobile mail - Improve the mail along with the mailbox
Wed, Dec 3rd 2014 11:34a   Ben Langhinrichs
The Coexlinks Fidelity 3.70 release announcement will be later this afternoon, but I wanted to show you a few screen shots first so people would understand what the big picture purpose is. It will come as no surprise to anyone that the workplace is going mobile. IBM has has thrown a lot of effort behind both IBM iNotes and IBM Notes Traveler in 9.0/9.01, and touts the new world as a "mobile first" world. The efforts have paid off. IBM Notes Traveler is sleek and easy to use. iNotes has improv

Spotlight on Patreon: Peter Hollens
Mon, Nov 24th 2014 10:50a   Ben Langhinrichs
I am at the point in life where I seek to find meaning in more than the pursuit of filthy lucre (though I'm happy to continue doing that as well). One of the ways is by supporting independent artists and musicians who have chosen a path less lucrative. I have little native artistic talent (though I have fun with Gimp and can write fairly well), but I can throw a few bucks here and there and help out those who make the world a more entertaining, beautiful place. Hence, my interest in Patreon, wh

Shadows and Shadow Play
Fri, Nov 14th 2014 12:47p   Ben Langhinrichs
It's been a while since I posted a Gimp 2.8 tutorial, though my recent one on Camtasia has been popular, so today I've released one which has two parts. The first part (about a minute long) shows a simple, but effective way to create a shadow for a cut-out figure when you paste it into a scene. It's easy and useful. The second part (about three minutes long) shows how to wake the shadow up and make it do something independent. Essentially, it becomes a cinemagraph (remember this one?) where t

The two barbers
Tue, Nov 4th 2014 11:33a   Ben Langhinrichs
There's a famous riddle which you have probably heard before, but I'll repeat it here. Skip to the end if you already know it. There is a small town in the midwest with exactly two barbershops, one on each side of town. The barbershop on the west side of town is pristine. Its floors are spotless, the windows are always perfectly clear, and the air always smells fresh. The barber has a friendly smile, shined shoes, a well-groomed head of hair, and a fancy shirt. The barbershop on the east side
