Original keithstric.com server retired
Keith Strickland    

Well, Friday morning I retired the original keithstric.com server (replace server in this article with glorified PC). It was built in late 2001 with a Pentium processor (I think) or AMD Equivalent and 256MB RAM running SuSE Linux (back then it was probably Red Hat, but I changed to SuSE once Red Hat went proprietary). This server was the original home for keithstric.com and was only turned off for a short while after I got a new server with dual processors in which one of the processor fans promptly failed a few months later, followed shortly by the other one. This server was brought back and has served web pages, Lotus Domino, File Sharing and Music Sharing duties ever since. Of course over the years more hard drives and memory have been added, nothing spectacular really, but it's reliably churned away no matter what I done to it.

The Motherboard that replaced this very old, dust filled PC came out of my Compaq Presario that was replaced by my iMAC. It has an AMD Sempron processor with 1GB RAM and right at 300GB of disk space (compared to the 80GB of the old one). I just put this motherboard in my old yellow scorpion case. Since I regularly do backups of the important stuff it only took me about 8 hours to set everything back up and restore all my data and important configuration files.

All of this goes to show to not underestimate the capabilities of your hardware. For a machine to run constantly for almost 9 years and also run modern applications so reliably is a pretty amazing feat. While I really like the new speed and space of the new, I think I'll miss old reliable. Let's just hope this new hardware steps up to the plate and is as reliable as the old server, I guess only time will tell.

My first impressions of using Titanium Appcelerator
Sun, Dec 8th 2013 11:48a   Keith Strickland
A couple of weeks ago I started messing with Titanium Appcelerator. Coming from Domino Designer and Eclipse the IDE will look very familiar. It's eclipse and it's based off of Aptana Studio. I guess the biggest issue to being productive is the learning curve for the API. But honestly when is that not the case? So starting to delve into this, Titanium apps are purely client side javascript based. You write the CSJS that builds the UI, Business Logic, Layout, everything.

2 Days with Domino 9.0.1 Mobile Controls - And I'm not happy
Wed, Oct 30th 2013 1:42p   Keith Strickland
OK, so today is the 2nd day I've spent with the Mobile controls from Domino 9.0.1. I must say the lack of a 9.0.1 Beta is quite obvious. So some of the "improvements" IBM made to the mobile controls are the addition of onBeforeTransitionIn/Out onAfterTransitionIn/Out. While these events are sorely needed, the implementation IBM chose to use doesn't work is kind-of odd. So, a brief rundown of the transition events pre 9.0.1. I posted a while back about how to implement these methods i [read] Keywords: domino ibm application community dojo mobile network server

Mobile First Development
Fri, May 10th 2013 9:06a   Keith Strickland
At Red Pill Development, Peter Presnell has encouraged our development efforts to use a "Mobile First" approach. The process is that you design your mobile interface first, get everything working properly and then move on from there to Tablet and then Web Browser interfaces re-using as much as possible from the previously working mobile implementation. This approach has several advantages: It forces you to research, gather requirements and only display and write code for the things you [read] Keywords: application development interface mobile properties widgets
