I realize it is been a while since I posted, I'm hoping this blast of content will make up for my absence.
Since the official release of IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition a few weeks ago, I have been "chomping at the bit" wanting to release a set of instructions / videos on how to install it on a Linux machine.
During the beta program I had the opportunity to "play" with it quite a bit, and let me tell you this release is exceptionally good. It is also by far the easiest and most hassle-free version I have ever installed on a Linux machine -but there are still a few gotchas and watch-outs to be wary of.
I have written an instructional document entitled Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux and posted it to dropbox. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. The document is focused on 64 bit Linux, but calls out differences from 32 bit installations where necessary. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 6, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 6 and SUSE 11.
I have also cut a series of 9 videos wherein I walk through the instructions step-by step and demonstrate how easy it really is to perform the installation. They are available on my YouTube channel, although I'm hoping I can talk David Leedy into including them on Notes In 9.
And now for something completely different: LIVE ACTION ARCHER
Tue, May 9th 2017 10:30p Devin Olson With the exception of a few notable disagreements (detailed below), I think this is pretty much spot on and would love to see it made.
My casting changes:
Dr. Algernop Krieger: Michael Fassbender -seriously, a character as comically insane as Krieger requires some serious dramatic acting chops. Brett Gelman is good, but I really think Fassbender would own this role.
Pam Poovey: Rebel Wilson. Yes, I get that Melissa McCarthy would be able to pull off this role. But you also have to think in
WTF!?: Facebook Deletes Personal Contact Entries!
Thu, Dec 8th 2016 4:14p Devin Olson So the other day I decided to uninstall the Facebook App from my iPhone 6. I needed to clear up some space, and I was shocked (SHOCKED! I tell you!) to discover how much space the Facebook App was using. No big deal, I uninstalled the App and everything was fine, or so I thought...
Today I tried to call my Mom, but couldn't find her entry in my Contacts. "How odd", I thought. As I was looking through my contacts I noticed that not only was her entry missing, a LOT of entries were missing.
