What's going on with the IBM Sametime Branding?
Carl Tyler    

With Sametime 8.5.2, many of us believed IBM had a small bug in their code with the login panel not having any kind of graphics or colouring, as can be seen here:

I'm suprised IBM didn't add the text "This space has been intentionally left blank"

The same cleansing process has now taken place with Sametime Proxy, so this is a conscious design decision by someone.

After

Which do you think looks better?

Cable cutting and access to foreign TV stations.
Mon, May 12th 2014 3:10p   Carl Tyler
Those of you with really good memories, may remember way back in April 2009 I cancelled my cable TV subscription. My savings have been used to buy various media players and subscriptions to online service. Honestly never had any regrets. A few months ago I purchased a Google Chromecast as it had such favourable reviews in the press. All I can say is these folks haven't tried the Roku or iPlayer for them to consider it such a great device. Personally I think it's terrible. I also d [read] Keywords: google network

The Domino Designer documentation team screwed us all
Fri, Apr 25th 2014 6:30p   Carl Tyler
They did us all a disservice by not preparing us for the future. They gave us too much useful information in the documentation. Pretty much every function in the old Domino Designer Documentation gave an example for every function or method, so if you weren't sure exactly how to use it, you'd look at the example and try it out and learn from it, you know, monkey see, monkey do, monkey learn. Those days appear to be gone in the new IBM products. I've been messing a great deal latel [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm

IBM SmartCloud Meetings aren't really that Smart.
Thu, Apr 10th 2014 11:50a   Carl Tyler
Went to an IBM SmartCloud Sametime meeting today, via a URL that goes direct to the meeting, decided check my plugins etc. before going into the meeting. I got presented with this dialog: The thing about this dialog is it is totally uneeded, the meeting ID was passed as part of the URL, read the URL with a bit of Javascript IBM and redirect to the correct page automatically. End users shouldn't be expected to figure this out, there's nothing "Smart" about this. Also don [read] Keywords: ibm sametime javascript mac

Since when has the OGS been about Press?
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 3:23p   Carl Tyler
I've seen this comment in a few blog posts recently, and I have to ask, since when has the OGS been about Press? People do realise that the press get 1 on 1 briefings at Connect, and they can be briefed throughout the year if they want to by making a simple phone call to IBM. How about the customers that paid money to be at the event, shouldn't the whole show be about them? Without customers, believe me, the press won't give you 2 minutes. Personally I think Connects issue is that [read] Keywords: ibm

So you've all looked at the calendar, you've picked out some sessions, but lets face it, you want to do some fun stuff. So here's the things I suggest: Great Geek Challenge, this is one of the most fun events, think pub quiz, organized by the wonderful nerd girls and emceed by myself and Paul Mooney. It fills up quickly and there is often a line as it's so much fun, so get there early, either with a team or without one if there's a seat you can take it. This year I also have [read] Keywords: ibm lotusphere sametime

F*@king Bruce and his attention seeking ways...
Wed, Oct 2nd 2013 8:19a   Carl Tyler
I'm kidding, but someone needs to bring him back down to earth. I've known Bruce for a number of years now as a friend, a customer, partner, advisor, and general good guy. Honestly, what can I say that hasn't already been said in all the other blogs? I'll just say this, without Bruce and the commitment he had to keeping NTF going, the Domino/Notes market could be very different today, it could have been much worse, NTF filled a hole that IBM chose not to fill, and it took IBM year [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes ntf

He walked on his bloody stumps...
Tue, Sep 17th 2013 11:07a   Carl Tyler
Back in FebruaryI blogged about The Domino Danderers and a planned walk across Scotland in aid of the Children's Hospice Association Scotland. Originally I was to be performing that walk in May with the others, but due to some health issues I was unable to take part, except in a supporting role. I had raised quite a bit of money back them, so I couldn't even bale, so I scheduled my attempt for weekend, as I would already be in the UK for ICON UK and a friends wedding.
