More than 30,000 users with multiple email systems, not enough bandwidth or storage, obsolete PCs, thousands of Lotus Notes applications, multiple operating systems, and a giant headache for both Royal Mails IT department and its system integrator CSC.

Dash4Dosh 2014: Riding to the Arctic Circle
Tue, Mar 4th 2014 7:10p Gregg Eldred I really haven’t figured out a good opening paragraph to this story. Too many thoughts going through my mind (giving back, relatives lost to cancer, father beating cancer, and so on). So, let’s cut to the chase.
I have scheduled eleven days of my corporate provided holidays to join Paul Mooney, Sean Cull, Vladimir Veletic, and Chris Harris, to meet up with some friends from Denmark, and a few support cars, and embark on a motorcycle ride that supports Macmillan Cancer Support. This i [read] Keywords:
Liberté! Publicis ditches Lotus Notes
Tue, Feb 25th 2014 10:20a Gregg Eldred Back in July of 2013, I wrote about Publicis moving from IBM Notes to Exchange. Now, seven months later, it appears that the holding company is starting the migration.

Two Step WordPress Authentication: This Won’t End Well

However, I have printed out my backup codes and have used one of them. I’d like to know how I generate a QR code to my new phone in order to have two step authentication work.

Connect 2014: Domino Onboarding Manager
Thu, Feb 13th 2014 2:33p Gregg Eldred A feature in an imminent release of Domino was kinda/sorta announced at the Opening General Session. It was at the “What’s New in Domino” session where more information was shared. However, slides are not available for that session on the Connect site. Pity.
