My Name is Christian Tillmanns and I am one of the founders of Informica of Switzerland. The other can present himself.
Another Blog, my god, was that necessary?
Duno. Is there already a blog about IBM Smart Business stuff? Nope. Don’t think so. We are the first.
Why the heck IBM Smart Business?
You will find out.
Only smart Business? How boring.
I can and will probably annoy you with other stuff. I am sure you always wanted to discuss the ball and string problem, settling with power or RSV and the 72 degrees offset on the R22/44.
… oh, BTW, IBM Smart Business and Lotus Foundations. Have I told you allready, that this blog is running on a Lotus Foundations Appliance?
Pretty easy to setup, once you know how to. Since I hate adminstration with a passion you only can dream of, it normaly takes me a very long time to figure out everything. For administrative stuff I have a very short attention span. That’s why you will see this blog changing constantly, while I find out, what I can do with it.
Now, how to setup a WordPress blog on Lotus Foundations.
1. Create a team for the blog. I choose … who would believe it … blog.
2. Create a Virtual Webserver: Webserver => Virtual Webserver Tab => Add virtual Webserver and fil in the URL, you can leave the IP address and choose the team.
3. Copy the downloaded WordPress Files in the www folder of your blog team.
4. RTFM from here
There is a slight problem with the autoinstallation of themes, but there is probably a solution for this.
I hope I don’t have to see THAT again. Adobe Reader messes up my Mac big time.
Wed, Nov 27th 2013 5:18a Christian Tillmanns I would almost go as far to call Adobe Reader XI “Crap Ware”. And I am not even alone. What are they thinking.
Here is the scenario:
Yesterday I had to fill out a pdf form. Unfortunately the Apple preview app can’t do that. Hey, no problem, I am just going to install the latest Adobe Reader and off we go. That worked for the form … apart from the sending by email button with Notes … and I got it done eventually. But I should have taken the problem with Notes and se [read] Keywords: notes
Wed, Nov 27th 2013 1:19a Christian Tillmanns One of the best developers I know isn’t anymore.
He introduced me to OO programming with Lotus Script.
I found solutions were I ran into walls (and I found some for him).
We installed Workplace together and that was a long day.We build the first server chalet ever.
Rest in peace Jens.
My thoughts are with the family.

If Apple would build cars …
Sun, Oct 27th 2013 7:18a Christian Tillmanns … I probably would not be as annoyed.
In ancient times I liked cars. That changed when I started flying. Just fly a Bell 214 B2 (2500 shp) once and a Ferrari with a mere 600 hp seems like a toy and I never liked old timers (with a few exception due to the design). Today, for me a car is a transportation tool … and boy that thing can get on my nerves.
Long long time ago, the boss of GM got the last laugh when he responded to Bill Gates compared the computer industry to the car indus [read] Keywords: apple
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
Sat, Oct 26th 2013 1:40p Christian Tillmanns Around me a world is not breaking down, but rather disappear silently. More and more IBM partners I know, give up Notes entirely. Certifications are not renewed, selling licenses is abandoned. Some box movers take the business remaining. For larger customers, IBM takes it up. Sometimes even without asking the partner. I have the impression, since Ed’s departure, this trend that was going on for years, accelerates.
I wonder, if IBM is aware of it. They must, the writing on the wall is just [read] Keywords: connections
Do we need a new Ed?
Mon, Sep 30th 2013 4:58a Christian Tillmanns It’s calm, very calm out there. Kinda strange if you think that Gini Rometty said that IBM Notes is a flagship.
What is certainly missing is Ed. He is still blogging, unfortunately not about things that are important to the yellow bubble.
His successor – who ever that is right now – has yet to get the hang of blogging. [read] Keywords: ibm
