Seven Years Later, Another Graduation
Sun, Jan 22nd 2017 8:52p   Gregg Eldred
Graduation day, 20 January 2017, Kilo Company and Oscar Company. This is, IMHO, the greatest graduation ceremony I have ever witnessed. And I’ve seen it twice. Every time I think about it, I get something in my eyes. Strange. Graduation takes place on Peatross Parade Deck, one of the largest parade decks I’ve ever seen. […]

Seven Years Later, A Return to MCRD Parris Island
Sun, Jan 22nd 2017 7:01p   Gregg Eldred
Nearly seven years ago, I traveled to Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) Parris Island, SC, for Number One Son’s graduation from boot camp and into the US Marine Corps. Neither he nor I ever thought that we would return. But we did. Here is what I shared with you seven years ago. This time, it was […]

Lake Michigan Circle Tour – Day Four
Fri, Jan 13th 2017 7:11p   Gregg Eldred
The sadness begins, as we know that we are heading home, the Upper Peninsula already a (great) memory. We now have a destination that does not wait for those that are tardy, a ferry crossing of Lake Michigan, so that we do not have to ride through Chicago and all that entails when you are […]

Lake Michigan Circle Tour – Day Two
Thu, Jan 12th 2017 2:55a   Gregg Eldred
Spent some time, the previous night, mapping out Day Two’s ride. Using Google Maps and the Ride Michigan book, determined the roads we were going to ride and some of the specifics on those roads. After a free hotel breakfast, we rode out of Ludington and continued north. Day Two: Day Two Best Roads: From […]

Goodbye IBM Notes: Australian Securities & Investment Commission
Thu, Dec 8th 2016 7:19p   Gregg Eldred
The Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC) has completed a proof of concept using Microsoft Office 365, and will be moving their mail and applications from IBM to the Microsoft cloud. Perhaps most limiting of all, it has left ASIC glued to its ageing Lotus Notes system and the capability of its platform lagging well […]

Four Days and 1169 Miles
Mon, Jun 6th 2016 9:34p   Gregg Eldred
The 2016 riding season started a while ago, however I really kicked it off 2-5 June with a 1169 mile journey through Michigan. There was a STAR Touring and Riding event at Boyne Mountain Resort in Michigan which was the focal point of the ride. Geoff and I met in Avon Lake, over breakfast, on […]

IBM has published a Technote detailing Verse Offline. But watch those caveats. Hat tip to Alan for the link.

Warren Buffett: “Owning IBM shares could prove a mistake”
Fri, Mar 4th 2016 1:01p   Gregg Eldred
Berkshire, which held an 8.59 percent stake in IBM as of Dec. 31, 2015, said in an annual shareholder letter on Saturday that it planned to keep that stake despite a $2.6-billion paper loss at the end of last year. Buffett told the cable television network he did not think he was wrong for owning […]

“I went to IBM Connect and saw Verse . . . “
Wed, Feb 10th 2016 1:55p   Gregg Eldred
This is a very positive article, but one that concerns me. It should raise flags within IBM, if they follow their products in the news. I attended IBM Connect last week, where I checked out one of the most interesting products you’ve likely never heard of — a new email offering called “IBM Verse.” While […]

CIO: Can IBM redefine the future of email?
Fri, Feb 5th 2016 2:53p   Gregg Eldred
I was in the middle of the great email battle between Microsoft and IBM [Disclosure: Microsoft and IBM are clients of the author] in the 1990s and there really wasn’t much competition. Microsoft had Exchange, which had its greatest power in its focus on users. IBM bought Lotus to get Notes, which had stronger administration […]

Outside Looking In: GURUpalooza and Ask The Product Managers
Thu, Feb 4th 2016 6:48p   Gregg Eldred
Through the wonders of technology, I was able to attend this year’s GURUpalooza and Ask the Product Managers at Connect 2016. I think it was an excellent use of Periscope and it also allowed me to better understand both sessions. After watching both, I have some opinions from this year’s editions. First, and easiest, Ask The […]
