Train Tips for European Traveling -- Chapter IV
Thu, Mar 31st 2016 12:02a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
This month, I took another trip to Europe, with a smaller focus and duration. I took the Dutch commuter rail round trip from Amsterdam to Eindhoven. What I learned about ticketing is that the Dutch rail system has not improved much over the past several years, despite reports that it has. Yes, they do accept some non-Dutch bank cards for purchasing rail tickets--which is welcomed by many travelers--there are limitations which can cause you to miss your train. This Year's Story What really s

After a great week in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, I worked with my co-presenter on last minute edits and ensure that we were happy with the final product. Title: Adm01. Back from the Dead: When Bad Code Kills a Good Server Abstract: It's Friday and a new customer calls. Their mission critical app is taking :05 to open documents and the users are quite concerned. Where do you start when handed a 20 year old application you have never seen, on a server you barely know? Join two IBM Champio

IBM Connect 2016: IBM Champions Program Praised by Media Analyst
Mon, Feb 1st 2016 8:05p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Today, Monday, 1 Feb, during the OGS (Opening General Session) at IC16 (IBM Connect 2016), the attendees arriving early got to see on the big board, a rolling display of sponsor logos and quotes from Champions (e.g. one, two, and three) on the main hall-wide display. Rob Enderle being in attendance, liked what he saw and wrote a nice piece on how he respects the program and what IBM did by recognizing technical leaders in their community. The part creating intrigue is that he offered the same su

Well, it's that time of year again... where the customers and partners that help create the IBM/Lotus community gather in Florida to learn, network, collaborate, and warm-up a bit (except for our friends in the southern hemisphere). If you arrive early to IBM Connect 2016, there are a couple of activities planned for Saturday to allow you to meet and great early arriving speakers, sponsors, and fellow attendees. See you in Orlando! First, the past several years we held a Soccer Saturday sess

Keeping Warm -- Winter Gear Test Results
Mon, Dec 7th 2015 7:00p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
In January 2014, I wrote about "Winter Warming Tips" and provided several ideas on clothing concepts to keep warm during the unexpectedly cold climate much of North America experienced. That post included a Where to Buy section. My thought process for this sequel post is to share some knowledge and help one avoid dropping a mortgage payment to find what can work or a cold learning process in the pursuit of enjoying (or coping with) the cold outdoors.

Another Reason to Upgrade Traveler to 9.0.1.7 - iOS9 and Repeating Meetings
Wed, Sep 16th 2015 5:38p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
IBM released a support flash late this afternoon - EDT, which if using the native iOS 9 Calendar application and sync against a pre-9.0.1.7 Traveler server, you can lose repeating meetings on the iOS device. Fortunately, all of the data remains in-tact on the IBM Notes side, so the desktop client, iNotes, cloud products will have the full data set, as will Android devices connecting via Traveler. So, inform your users to avoid upgrading to iOS 9 until your environment is tested and upgraded to T

Attention Apple Users - Protect Yourself from the Airdrop Exploit
Wed, Sep 16th 2015 12:16p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Forbes has one of the best takes on this new vulnerability - particularly as many articles I read all cite the Forbes piece (linked below). Regardless if you have OS X or iOS, you are in scope. The issue is that in iOS and OS X an attacker can install apps sans permission via AirDrop--which is used as a quick and easy way to send files between two devices. Unfortunately, the exploit bypasses security and need not be trusted and the user not notified of the application installation. Know that eve

IBM Software and iOS 9 Support
Wed, Sep 16th 2015 2:16a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
As Apple plans to release its new mobile operating system today (16 September 2015), IBM kept busy the past few days updating their correlated technotes. Thus, it seemed appropriate to offer a few links to showcase how IBM plans to support this latest Apple offering vis-à-vis Traveler, Verse, and Connections Cloud Traveler. Here are any relevant support related articles that mention iOS 9 in regards to IBM Traveler, IBM Verse and Connections Cloud Traveler. Just ensure that for whatever ver
