Apple Cake: The Drink
Karl-Henry Martinsson    

I brought some of my home-made Apple Cake drink to Lotusphere, and I had many people ask me how it is made. It is not hard at all, it just takes some time.

You need the following:

  • 75 cl vodka (that is one regular bottle), and I recommend Absolut 40% (or even 50% if you want it stronger).
  • 30 cl (that is about 10 fl oz) concentrated apple juice. I used one can of defrosted frozen juice concentrate.
  • 3-4 tablespoons granulated sugar.
  • 3 tablespoons of vanilla sugar. It can be purchased at the nearest IKEA in the US. You can also use vanilla extract.
  • 3 sticks of cinnamon.

Gently heat up the apple juice on the stove. Stir in the sugar and vanilla sugar/flavor until it is all dissolved. Pour in a big bottle that is just over 1 liter, a little over a quart. I use a 2 quart Rubber Maid MixerMate bottle. Add the cinnamon sticks and then the vodka. Shake well.

For the next 7 days, shake once or twice a day. After 7 days, remove the cinnamon sticks. It is now ready to serve.

Whip some cream, and add plenty of vanilla sugar to it before you whip it. You want a nice strong vanilla flavor.

Pour the drink in shot glasses, but don't fill them to the rim. Then add some whipped cream on top, and it is ready to drink. Skål!

Microsoft skipping Windows 9 – jumps to Windows 10
Tue, Sep 30th 2014 12:40p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Microsoft unveiled the next version of Windows at a press event in San Francisco today. Surprisingly the successor to Windows 8 and 8.1 will not be called Windows 9 as everyone expected. Instead Microsoft jumps straight to Windows 10. One reason for this, according to Microsoft, is that the new operating system is such a big leap […] [read] Keywords: microsoft

Free Software – Password Reset for Notes/Domino
Wed, Sep 24th 2014 12:41p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Earlier this year I was asked to research some alternatives for a web-based password reset function at my work. One of the larger support burdens are users who forget the passwords, especially in the first few days after changing it. We have a 90 day password lifespan, then a new password need to be picked. Some […] [read] Keywords: domino notes notesdomino password

#ThrowbackThursday – Worst Practives at Connect 2013
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 6:05a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
Paul Mooney and Bill Buchan returns with a brand new Worst Practices at IBM Connect 2013. This session alone is almost worth the cost to attend Lotusphere/Connect/ConnectED. There is a slight skip towards the end, when I had to switch batteries. Otherwise you have the whole session, including the warm-up performance. [read] Keywords: ibm lotusphere

This morning Kristin Keene from IBM talked more about the upcoming IBM ConnectED 2015 in January at the ICS Community webcast. IBM realized that the last few years they been swinging over too much to the business side, and is now going back to a much more technical conference. As I mentioned the other day, […] [read] Keywords: ibm community

Two more days to thank someone
Mon, Sep 15th 2014 5:45p   Karl-Henry Martinsson
It is now just two days left to nominate IBM Champions. So if you know someone who have been helping the community, perhaps through video tutorials, blogs, presenting at (or organizing) conferences or answering questions on different forums, submit a nomination. This is how IBM explains what a Champion is: An IBM Champion is someone who […] [read] Keywords: ibm community

#ThrowbackThursday – My old HP calculators
Thu, Sep 11th 2014 6:57a   Karl-Henry Martinsson
I have previously here on my blog mentioned my preference for HP calculators. Our first calculator at home was the HP-21, with a red LED display, which we got in late 1975 (if I remember correctly), soon after it was released. My parents used it for all different kinds of calculations, especially taxes (back then the Swedish tax system […] [read] Keywords:

#ThrowbackThursday – World War 1

OK, this is a pretty extreme #ThrowbackThursday, but I wanted to promote a blog I have been reading since the beginning of the year. Arthur Linfoot, who took part in World War 1, wrote a diary every day from January 1 1914 to December 31 1918. It was written in Pitman’s shorthand, and his son […] [read] Keywords:

The conference, later renamed IBM Connect and now renamed again to IBM ConnectED will take place again in January 2015. Perhaps this video will get you inspired to do some XPages development, or you can show it […] [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusphere xpages development
