Old computers, probably not worth the effort?
Mon, Jan 19th 2015 1:28p   David Schaffer
I periodically get an older computer returned from its original user/purpose. My tendency is to reset it to a “ready and safe to use” condition and keep it for testing, guest use, dedicated use (e.g. running a nightly file copy or serving out a non-networked printer), etc. But with new and refurbished computers so cheap […]

Google Apps Migration: Lessons Learned
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 4:26p   David Schaffer
We thought long and hard before migrating from our on premises Domino mail system. I really wanted IBM SmartCloud to be the answer ? an easy migration, a familiar environment and no issues accessing our existing Domino apps (in hybrid mode). But Google was the clear winner for a few reasons: Price ? a dramatic […]

Google Gotchas

Let me preface this by saying that our migration to Google Apps is really going quite well and we’re generally happy. That being said I’ve seen a few gotchas that I’m hoping somebody else has some insight into: There is apparently a long-standing problem when sending an invitation to an external Notes or Outlook user […]

Google Migration ? Ready to throw the switch
Thu, Oct 9th 2014 9:22a   David Schaffer
Just a quick update on our planned IBM on premises to Google Apps migration. We’re about ready to throw the switch — that is, to migrate the first group of users into production on the Google platform. So far I’ve been fairly pleased. The Google platform seems to offer fairly equivalent and familiar capabilities for […]

The Adventure Begins?

It appears I will be moving an organization of about 30 users from IBM to Google Apps. What’s in use now is Domino/Notes/Traveler/Sametime/Quickr/SmartCloud Meetings. The target is Google Apps for Business: mail, drive, contacts, calendar, hangouts. CRM will move from a system implemented as Notes databases and email template customization (iExtensions from iEnterprises) to Zoho […]

New 959 Area Code in Connecticut
Fri, Aug 1st 2014 12:34p   David Schaffer
The northern half of the state is getting a new overlay area code, 959 And we’re keeping our rather quaint dialing rules: “customers will continue to dial area code + telephone number for local calls, and 1 + area code + telephone number for long distance calls” Do other states still do that? Is anyone […]

Travel broadens the mind; is there an adapter for that?
Tue, Apr 29th 2014 1:23p   David Schaffer
One of my many hats is to support consultants who travel the world: wireless roaming plans, plug adapters, etc. I find that whenever I travel myself, either for vacation or work, I learn something about what’s out in the world that I never seem to pick up from reading or from reports from the field.
