Mac OSX Lion Tech Tip: Fullscreen Support for Browsers and Cocoa Apps is Available!
Bill Malchisky    

Currently, Lion's Fullscreen support is limited to Safari, iLife apps (e.g. GarageBand), and some of the standard Apple provided OSX tool at the moment. I prefer to have apps that do not take-up the full screen unless I specifically request it, as with document editing programs. That has been one of the benefits of the Mac environment and in one way what distinguished itself from Windows. What is the benefit of Safari full screen on a 27" monitor? Most Windows machines do not come with such a monitor by default, so iMacs have a clear advantage here. The difference with simply maximizing a window and getting Fullscreen support is that the application is designed to use all of the space on your monitor--in theory.

Having stated that, Apple is moving in this direction. At the current time, Chrome and Firefox are not enabled for Fullscreen mode. Additionally, Cocoa apps are not able to do so...  till now!

Enter Maximizer. This is a SIMBL plugin providing Fullscreen support with Cocoa apps that are not currently supporting Fullscreen. Plus Chrome and Firefox support. Carbon apps are excluded currently. The application is in beta, so read the caveats on the page. Be mindful of the support email link on the page, as the developer wants to make it better. So if you see any anomalies, or worse, do send a note with the simple requested support info.

One great aspect of being in the tech space, individual developers creating solutions to fill a void in the marketplace...and much faster than larger enterprises ever could. Great to see such ingenuity.

Two quick notes:
1) If you are curious about Apple's hits and misses with Fullscreen support in Lion, here is a good article;
2) Recall from yesterday's post that Fullscreen does not allow for proper real estate management in a dual-head configuration, leaving the other display with a linen background; presuming Apple will address this in a future release.

I published my Engage 2014 session slides to both SlideShare and My Presentations page. I took time to review the deck and decided to test further the remote access redirect slides, ultimately dramatically simplifying the steps. The result is an easy two-step process that should work fine for about 80% of use cases. If your needs exceed what I provided, please contact me and I can offer some suggestions for an alternate approach.

Wisdom on Longevity From a 96 Year Old Skier
Tue, Mar 11th 2014 4:11p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
George Jedenoff started skiing at the age of 43 and has been hooked ever since. Earlier this month, he once again carved some turns at Alta and Snowbird with the Ski Utah crew and talked about longevity, keeping motivated, the importance of staying fit, and how skiing has been a part of his life every single year since 1960. Hardly timid, George seeks out powder and has a wonderfully cordial demeanor, with excellent diction. Applicable life advice for even non-skiers. Enjoy this short video. [read] Keywords:

New ICS Linux Skype Chat Announced

During a packed room at Linuxfest V during IBM Connect 2014, an attendee asked if there was a place where we could collaborate on using Linux with ICS. Enter Community in action: Tim Clark immediately stepped-up to start a new Skype chat entitled, "ICS Linux Chat". Therefore, if you would like a place to go and chat about Linux between Connect events or my Linux sessions at LUG events, then please contact myself, Tim Clark, Devin Olson, or Christoph Stoettner to get invited.

While at IBM Connect 2014, I heard that a prototype x64 Windows Notes client is in the works -- rumor perhaps, but it is intriguing. I also know that unless there is a business justification, IBM will spend development and testing dollars elsewhere -- which also makes sense and is prudent. There are lots of internal prototypes at any ISV/OEM, few of which see the light of day. What their respective clients want and need ultimately moves any subset of prototypes towards a production release: cust [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes notes client traveler apple community development skype

I am thrilled to announce that we have secured a room for another unofficial all-Linux session at IBM Connect. Linuxfest returns for the fifth consecutive year. We have great digs inside the Dolphin at Oceanic 2, so it is really easy to find. Red Hat is sponsoring us for the third consecutive year and I am thrilled to be working with them to help move Linux forward within the IBM/Lotus Community. ic14-linuxfest-v.ics Date: Thursday, 30 January Time: 12:30 - 1:30 PM Place: Dolphin -- Ocea [read] Keywords: ibm lotus application community linux red hat redhat

Five Old School Ski Lifts That Let You Enjoy the View
Sat, Jan 4th 2014 5:12a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Just in time for the new year, the Wall Street Journal published a piece on scenic classic ski lift rides at domestic ski areas, which actually let you slow down a bit and enjoy the ride. Sure, sometimes when you seek to meet a friend at the mid-lift area quickly, the slower pace can be irksome if you grab the wrong chair, but outside of that, taking time for a nice conversation with a local, or your ski buddies makes a great day even better. This is an excellent compilation. Of course, other re [read] Keywords:

Simple Tips to Keeping Warm and Staying Safe in Winter

In the midst of some quite cold temperatures experienced over the northern USA this week, into the weekend and coming week, I thought I would put together a quick list with a goal to keep you warm--as this is an area of expertise for me. It is amazing that even with activities quite common for many to most, how cold people still get when say, attending a football game, shoveling snow, running errands, volunteering at an election poll, sledding, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. As I really enjoy cold we [read] Keywords:

"IBM iNotes on Firefox 26 is Inoperable" -- FIXED
Thu, Dec 26th 2013 12:11p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Here is another great reason to upgrade to 8.5.3 FP6 or 9.0.1 IF1 -- it addresses an iNotes issue with the latest Firefox release. The official Fix List for 8.5.3 FP6 is listed here, but omits any reference to this iNotes issue. You have to dig further and go through the product fix list located here under Upcoming Releases, to see mention of the SPR for this problem. If you have Domino 9.0.1, then the respective documents are a bit more challenging to locate, but you will find technote 16579 [read] Keywords: domino ibm inotes ldd lotus bug firefox

This morning IBM announced via the Social Biz User Group site that list of the 2014 IBM Champions for Collaboration Solutions. The announcement also appears on the IBM Social Business Insights Blog. I am very pleased to have been accepted once again. The group of community members are quality people and I appreciate very much the new friendships I made over the past several years as a result. There are 87 of us now, spanning the globe. Congratulations to the new names and re-confirmed individual [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm community
