Shutting down LotusKnows.idonotes.com
Chris Miller    

Back in 2009, Lotus launched a huge (semi) marketing campaign called Lotus Knows.  It was meant to bring a new marketing angle and awareness to the Lotus brand.  Well Lotus has been slowly sun setting everything to do with it, so I am closing down the LotusKnows.IdoNotes.com aggregator and will be reviving it as IBMSocialBiz.

The LotusKnows account on Twitter points everyone across after a long hiatus and the Facebook page is now closed:
Hello FB Fans, The LotusKnows team wants to thank you for participating in this successful campaign. We'll be sunsetting this FB page at the end of the week - but want to invite you all over to see what's happening with IBM Social Business and collaboration solutions at www.facebook.com/ibmsocialbiz. Give us a "like"! Hope to see you there!!


So I see some of you still hit the page to glean information, just know that it will be making a turn shortly to help me aggregate and keep up with the new term of the year.

Protecting Directories on a Web Server
Tue, Oct 28th 2014 8:27a   Chris Miller
The Domino web server is still powerful (never mind the current POODLE and SHA-2 talks and fixes) and offers the easily ability to control access via File Protections Documents. Groups and users can be listed allowing or blocking access to files and directories served by the Domino web server. Since .nsf files already have their own access controls, these File Protections extend to files such as HTML, JPEG, and GIF that you can enforce file protection for that browser users can access.

Domino Migration Utility - where did you go?
Mon, Oct 27th 2014 6:15a   Chris Miller
IBM announced and demonstrated the Domino Migration Utility back at IBM Connect 2013. This tool was designed to move Microsoft Exchange users into IBM Domino. Apparently it was rebranded and not made available free to the public. It is a paid service only. Today someone asked about the Domino Migration Utility in a Skype chat looking for updated information on it or how to download/install it. After some digging online I found that back in June 2013 IBM stated in the Notes and Domino Forum [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm ldd lotus notes application consulting development email exchange exchange java microsoft skype

What is the PODDLE vulnerability - back to basics
Thu, Oct 23rd 2014 9:00a   Chris Miller
As we fight to fix the POODLE vulnerability in all systems, we should know what it is. POODLE stands for Padding Oracle on Downgraded Legacy Encryption . In simpler terms it exploits an older form of encryption your browser may use to communicate with servers. As long as both the server and the client (web browser) support SSL 3.0, the attacker can force a downgrade in the protocol, so even if your browser tries to use TLS, it ends up being forced to use SSL instead. The only answer is for eith [read] Keywords: connections firefox google oracle security server

CliMate Environment Tracker by Rooti review
Mon, Oct 20th 2014 9:52a   Chris Miller
CliMate, by Rooti, is your personal environment tracking device. It syncs via bluetooth and provides information on temperature, humidity, UV indexes and more. It can be worn and attached to bags and clothes via a flexible lanyard or mounted on the included stand. In the free application, a plant symbolizes you in relation to your surrounding climate. When you're protected, the plant flourishes. When you're exposed, it withers away. The app parses all your data into daily, weekly and monthl [read] Keywords: application archive mobile

Skype 6.21.104 is consuming way too much memory
Thu, Oct 16th 2014 10:12a   Chris Miller
I am an avid user of Skype and have let it update itself pretty regularly. Even automatically. However the Skype 6.21.104 update this week is consuming tons of machine memory. And it continued to grow So I uninstalled Skype 6.21.104 to go back to an older version. My choice was the last Skype 5 version I could find of 5.10.0.116 and ran into a new issue Since yesterday, all versions of Skype below Skype 6.13 for Windows and Skype 6.14 for OS X are blocked and do not allow you to sign i [read] Keywords: skype

What is the IBM Bridge to Cloud program?
Wed, Oct 15th 2014 9:49a   Chris Miller
IBM launched the Bridge to Cloud program to help users move easier into their IBM Connections (formerly SmartCLoud) Cloud offerings. The goal is to keep entitlements in place and move to subscriptions. "Bridge to Cloud" allows a customer to switch from on-premises Notes CALs to SmartCloud (now Connections Cloud) Notes subscriptions at renewal time, keeping the same entitlements whether they stay on-prem or move to IBM Connections Cloud Domino server licensing remains as-in (customers trans [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotus notes email server

The IBM Desktop Utility for Lotus Notes Clients
Thu, Oct 2nd 2014 12:50p   Chris Miller
Do you still use or have users with the Lotus Notes Workspace? Then the IBM Desktop Utility for Lotus Notes is a cool tool. The DSKTOOL.EXE Utility essentially remediates the user's desktop icons in a recertification exercise. What that means is that you can use the tool to rename the server that an icon points to with a simple script text file. It is currently supported up to version 8.5.x for Notes Builds 194 and earlier. Read the rest of the SocialBizUG article I wrote right here.

Wed, Sep 24th 2014 8:17a   Chris Miller
IBM has announced the rebranding of IBM SmartCloud to IBM Connections. As you can see in the chart below, IBM Connections is now a platform and not a product. We were first told of this at IBM Connect 2014. Here is a quick chart with the new names plus more news. These changes will be implemented on or after September 20. No customer actions or changes will be required, and no URLs will change. There will be a dual entitlement option to help you move to the IBM Connections cloud for your [read] Keywords: connections ibm email
