So yeah, that new bass I bought.  As I said, I went with a cheap one from Amazon.  As I also said, I have a somewhat musical background.  I opened the box, it was already strung, I just needed to tune it and play.  Luckily, a) there are a billion videos/sound clips out there that come with the notes to tune a guitar and b) I knew how to tune a guitar from when I was a kid.  So I tuned it and I played.  (Interesting side note, I found that I could tune it better if I sang the note and playe

As is my usual way, I went about selecting a bass all the wrong way.  (Spoiler alert: it turns out ok). I’m sure anyone who actually plays bass (and all of the internet) will tell you to go to a reputable music store, preferably a non-chain store.  Well that’s all well and good, but I don’t really like people or interacting with them and there’s this awesome thing called Amazon which means with the click of a button I could have a bass delivered to my house within two d

Right, so we last left you on a heck of a cliffhanger, just how did she decide on the bass? Well, I didn’t right away.  I liked the flute, but it’s REALLY hard to sing along when you play.  And since I like to sing, I kind of wanted to learn something I could sing with.  Ideally, I’d learn to play the piano.  I found a great app to help me learn piano, SimplyPiano.   It was featured in a Lifehacker article.  I like the app, with a mix of traditional songs and simplified

As I said in my previous posts, I’ve decided to learn to play the bass.  With my background, I want to learn it “right”.  Meaning I want to actually learn how to play the bass, not just learn songs.  While it seems everyone learns everything these days by watching some Youtube videos, I can’t learn from videos.  My brain just works better when I read.  Also, I really want to learn to play bass, not just learn some songs.  I want to learn the notes and proper fingeri

So I’m learning to play bass.  And yes, I’m probably gonna post about it like I’m the only person on earth ever to have done so.  If you play, hopefully you’ll find me endearing.  If you don’t play, maybe you’ll want to or you’ll learn something as I learn.  Or maybe you’ll just ignore these posts altogether.  As I do for my technical posts, I’m posting more for me to remember than for anything else anyway. The background: I’ve alw

Too Many Design Elements – Or Things I Forgot I Knew

My co-worker, Marky tells me I already knew this and that I told him this when he made the same mistake, but I forgot, or never knew, or something.  So I’m blogging it.  Next time when I google it, I’ll find this post and laugh at myself.  Or maybe I’ll remember.  In any case… Don’t add all of Sencha ExtJS’s download file to your XPages application.  It’s too many design elements.  As I discovered (again?) the other night. “Insuffici

As many of you know, it was recently announced that SocialBizUg.org will be shutting down.  Over the last several years (at least five and maybe six?), I have written for their Notes Developer Tips.  Tom Duff pulled me in as co-author many years ago.  For several years I wrote two articles a month for the newsletter.  Then Tom stepped down and I wrote all five articles every month for the newsletter.  I loved and hated that responsibility.  Loved that it forced me to write five articles ev

I’m back from IBM Connect 2016.  People want to know how it was.  It’s hard to explain.  I mean, it’s my blog, so I’m going to try, but I’m certain some of you won’t believe me because you weren’t there. The past couple of years have seen some negativity in our community.  Notes is Dead, Long Live Notes.  It’s something we’ve heard for…well, forever, but the last few years it seemed to be said louder and by more of the “faith
