Mac OSX Lion Install Tips & Considerations

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.

IBM released a Technote yesterday on the issues with their Sametime Mobile applications on iPhones and iPads running iOS 8 -- due for release on Wednesday, 17 September 2014. My friends Gabriella Davis and Matteo Bisi both blogged on the Technote. Beyond that, there exists a post on The Sametime Blog offering a behind-the-scenes look as to the challenges therein, written by the on-premises Sametime Product Manager - Marlon Machado.

iNotes Users -- Chrome 37 Creates Compatibility Issues

IBM released today, a new Technote for iNotes users, entitled, "Some iNotes operations fail to work correctly in Chrome browsers upgraded to Chrome version 37" and is available here. These five key areas introducing concern stem from Google deprecating the showModalDialog API. 1. Create/Edit Mail rule 2. Contacts Form and the Print action 3.

Preface - As I started this entry in June and in doing research to articulate the point, the case for installation simplicity grew dramatically. This post commences by illustrating the present state, how IBM did better previously (and still does with a different product), three customer examples of revenue impact, and closes with an offered solution for the present state.

Some "Great Train Rides" of the World

The Wall Street Journal released an Off Duty Travel section article entitled, "Great Train Rides: Run Away on the Rails", covering six scenic and enjoyable routes on four continents plus the island nation of New Zealand--including input from Mike Smith, The Man in Seat Sixty-One. Although hardly cyclopedic nor meant to be, reader comments do indicate additional favorites.

Skype 4.3 on Linux Crashing? Here’s a Fix.
Tue, Aug 5th 2014 7:12a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Microsoft released Skype 4.3 on Linux recently, to replace the aging version 4.2 due to cloud conversions utilized in other client flavors. There are some noticeable changes with the upgrade including new features. However, for power Skype users, there appears to exist a bug in the upgrade process causing the new Skype client to crash repeatedly just after the main window appears. Although conjecture, I suspect the problem manifests itself for those that have sent files to one or more contac [read] Keywords: application archive bug centos community database linux microsoft python red hat server skype ubuntu

Firefox Upgrade Kills iNotes, ICS SSL Product Access with Domino CA/Self-Signed Certs
Sun, Aug 3rd 2014 7:15p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
On Thursday, 24 July, I ran iNotes on Firefox sans problems. When I tried it on Friday, 25 July, I received a server connection error. I replicated in Notes so I knew the server was up. Then I tried accessing iNotes via Chrome on the same machine -- it worked. Tried a different operating system: Firefox generated an error, but Chrome and Safari worked. My third OS permutation yielded the same results, substituting IE for Safari. In each case Firefox failed to connect via SSL.
