It does make sense to buy good stuff. I am too poor to buy crap. My daughter No. 2 had a Nikon Coolpix 2700 for about not even two years. As it happens with kids, she dropped it. Boing. No more pictures. Big tears. I am not going to buy another one, just to keep her happy. Nope, but who knows, it would be probably repairable. Therefore I contacted the Nikon service center here in Switzerland and told them my problem. They said, that for this model and the problem I described, the price of the

Now I got my account and I am playing around with it. First impressions: It does look better than iNotes, or not? I am not sure. I can’t figure out, how to add a sender to my address book? Does anybody know, how to change the initials in the circles? When I compose an email and start typing the address, it get’s ugly. Way too slow. I really want to get into it and see how it works. If you are game, would you send me please emails to christian.tillmanns (at) ibmverse.com? I will no

Verse one step forward, one to the left, one back, two ….
Thu, Apr 9th 2015 10:57a   Christian Tillmanns
What do we have today? Since ConnectED a lot of things have happened, but for me it all started at the Connect 2015 in Zürich. As every year, I did a long blog post about it. I took 14 pages of notes and still managed to get it somehow wrong. Or did I really? The thing that made me “famous” was, that I said, that Scott said, that Jeff said IBM wants half a billion IBM Verse users. That was on 9 of march. On the 17th Volker Weber had a meeting with Jeff, who said, that somebody (me)

Having Trouble registering for IBM Verse?
Tue, Apr 7th 2015 9:08a   Christian Tillmanns
Just found some fine print in the Verse support forum: If you have trouble registering, having an account created for you, or if you’ve forgotten your password, please send an email to WebMaster@ibmverse.com I am going to wait, even though Vowe thinks, that I have broken the waiting list by registering several times. Serves me right.

IBM? Why?
Thu, Apr 2nd 2015 4:08a   Christian Tillmanns
I try to register for Verse. No success. For the umpteenth time. With several email addresses. Since last summer. Not that I need it, it just about going to the cloud with IBM or not? I would at least like to test it.

IBM Verse Freemium is DEAD
Fri, Mar 13th 2015 4:02a   Christian Tillmanns
What can change in a week. Last week in Zürich Scott Souder said IBM Verse Freemium will not be a crippled version. So much for that. Nice move from IBM to stab Scott in the back. Now it is a preview version that is so useless, that IBM might what to turn that server of again. That would save a few bucks in electricity. IBM Verse Support Forum (thank’s to Karl-Henry Martinsson) IBM really does not get it (… again). Somehow Vowes comment about the Village Idiot comes to mind. Let

A year ago Vowe started walking. Today he is doing at least a hundred kilometers a week. This is great. It certainly changed his life. If you are a “numbers athlete” you can do that, too. I am not. Also a year ago I felt I had to do something. I sensed, that I wasn’t up to speed anymore while moguls skiing. I have never been really fat. 10 years ago I was at my worst with slightly over 80 kilo, today I am down to 75 again. My BMI was never out of the normal range. Therefore I

ConnectEd in Zürich – Old Boys meeting
Mon, Mar 9th 2015 5:56a   Christian Tillmanns
I am not going to bore you with a lot of technical news about IBM Verse and stuff, but first, I want to thank the IBM partners and distributors, who actually run the show. IBM provides rooms and some speakers, the partners do all the rest, as I was told. Great job, really. This time, there were more C-Level tracks half as long as a technical session. I suppose that was to allow for the lower attention span of the C-Levels, therefore I will do the same thing here and give those with a lot of mee

A question about freebe Verse
Fri, Jan 30th 2015 10:38a   Christian Tillmanns
Some of you probably know it. If I change to cloud Verse in the free Version, can I use my own domain? That would be a game changer. Nobody does that AFAIK. Otherwise, I don’t really need another email address.

Notes and Domino as Open Source – Is this really a good idea?
Mon, Jan 26th 2015 4:33p   Christian Tillmanns
Once in a while the call for open sourcing of Notes and Domino comes up. Actually I personally would like that. But would it really boost the use of Notes and Domino? That is the point were I have doubts. Let’s just forget for a moment some issues that will prevent this, because apparently there is some third-party code in there, IBM can not just give away. That’s a legal problem. Let’s focus on the other problems, which are huge enough. Technical While I have no doubt, that
