IBM does not take public holidays anymore it seems

A reader caught this and sent it over. IBM has once again not not updated the public holiday documents in IBM Domino. Since IBM uses Domino as the back end (and IBM Verse as the overlay) for email, I would imagine they are facing this same issue. Or have stopped taking public holidays
Hey Chris,

Just wanted to share with you my latest frustration with IBM.

You may or may not be aware, that the "Holidays" import that "Lotus" provided 10 years ago, will end at the end of 2016.

Just to make sure I wasn't missing some critical update that included newer "Holiday" documents, I opened a PMR with IBM.

Their response was, "there is an enhancement request open for this".  Their "work around" for this issue, "you can edit the records yourself, to add the additional dates".

An "enhancement request"?  They can't afford to let a data entry person spend a couple of days creating newly updated "Holiday" documents.  It's not like they are busy putting out new versions of Notes and Domino.  (Since it has been almost 3 years since we had a point release, and that point release was mostly for bug fixes and  XPages stuff.)

You know as well as anyone, how much of a battle this is to keep a positive light on Domino.  Constant bashing about it being a dead platform, and antiquated (which is the most ridiculous argument I've ever had to have)... BUT... when IBM doesn't support the simple things, it just makes me think, "IBM really is trying to kill Domino".

OK... venting completed... I feel better now.

Thanks for reading,

There is an APAR for this found right here, and numerous documents and blog posts to create public holidays. I understand the reader frustration that we know this is happening soon with no updates yet.

IBM and Salesforce shake hands and offer integrations
Thu, Aug 31st 2017 3:05p   Chris Miller
IBM and Salesforce have dropped the gloves, shook hands and both offered data and app integrations to further their partnership. In the recent announcements (previously it was just selling their Watson and Einstein products) they are doing deeper app and data intergration offerings. I think Salesforce got the raw end of the deal only offering IBM Weather data in Lightning apps. Weather data is pretty abundant, but IBM does own the rights to allThe Weather Company since buying them a couple

Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer review
Tue, Jun 27th 2017 2:15p   Chris Miller
The Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer is a affordable and easy to use wireless printer. That is after you get it connected to the network in your home. I walk you through the app setup and some quick features in the review video above. As someone that does not print often, the times I do want to is when I am mobile. Packaging The printer comes well contained with the power cable and two ink cartridges. No cable for a direct PC connection is included (for those that want to use the Cano

DB2 on Cloud is renaming and something else is now Db2 on Cloud??
Wed, Jun 21st 2017 3:49p   Chris Miller
IBM sent a very confusing email about DB2 on Cloud and renaming. I will just leave this here On June 22 a number of products will be renamed in our Db2 family of products That's right, Db2 "DB2 on Cloud" will be renamed "Db2 Hosted" and "dashDB for transactions" will be renamed "Db2 on Cloud. Now notice the DB becomes Db in the new name. I am not sure if that was a typo or on purpose to differentiate the products. Either way taking a product name and swapping a new product into it al
