Social Experiment – a bust…
rob    

So I was forced to go with out my Iphone.  I was resolved to go Old School.  It was tough.  I heard phantom rings and vibrations.  I kept checking my pockets so that I could get my Iphone and check for email.  But by the third day I started feeling good.  The sense of urgency to life was gone.  I spent more time getting things done, meeting with people face to face, actually being engaged in a conversation with out being rude and checking for messages.  My kids absolutely loved it.

All good things come to an end.  I got a call from the Apple store that a phone had arrived.

Like a true junkie I dropped everything and raced to pick it up.

But the same sense of urgency that I had prior to this experiment seems to be gone.  I’ve now taken to leaving the Iphone in the Car during meeting and family engagements.

Apple watch – The game changer
Tue, Dec 16th 2014 6:11a   rob
I’m a big fan of apple products.  I have ipads, iphones, macbook pros and ipods.  Apple is the company that seems to always show up at the party late but always leaves the party as the most popular person there.  Even though they may not have the best product there. I don’t think that OSX is the best OS in the world.  I think that Windows does alot of things better.  So I use both PC’s and my Mac to work with.  On paper there have always better phones, music and video pla [read] Keywords: apple google interface iphone mac macbook

Ensuring that your email isn’t considered spam and Office365
Thu, Dec 11th 2014 4:12p   rob
Since I started noticing some of my mail messages bouncing back as spam I’ve been trying to correct the issue.  The biggest problem when you start getting bouncebacks is that you really don’t know how many message are being rejected.   Most companies won’t generate a bounceback.  Their philosophy is that its better to reject the mail and not let the spammers know that they got rejected. So I’ve taken a number of steps and made a few changes to the my Office365 environm [read] Keywords: administration email server

Office 365 mail servers on Spam Blacklists?
Mon, Dec 8th 2014 7:10a   rob
Since we’ve been migrating companies off IBM Lotus Domino we made the decision a couple of years ago to migrate ourselves.  We decided that we no longer wanted to host our own mail servers.  Why should we.  The cost of a cloud based email provider was so cheap.. I’ve long suspected that some of my mail was not being delivered to clients.  Most anti-spam products silently delete mail.  The recipient doesn’t get it and the sender doesn’t get notified.  But I started n [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus email exchange exchange microsoft office security

FIX – OS X YOSEMITE mail.app The Exchange Server “null” is not responding

I love my MAC. With the introduction of Hand Off I wanted to be able to move between my Rivit Mail on my iphone to my Rivit Mail on my MAC workbook pro.  Easy enough – Right?   Not if your an office365 or exchange user. Handoff currently only works with the OS X mail.app.  Outlook doesn’t support it yet.  Maybe when Microsoft gets around to updating Mac Office (come on Microsoft – 2011?  That’s ancient in computing years) it will work.  I have to use the Mail.app. [read] Keywords: calendaring notes bug email exchange exchange iphone mac microsoft office outlook password server

Excel 2013 no longer opens files on doubleclick
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 1:10p   rob
I started working with Office 2013 a few months back.  Really hate the recent interface design changes that seem to be sweeping the current IT world.  I find the minimalist presentation a little too bright and it actually makes things a little to difficult to find on the screen. Doubleclick doesn’t open excel spreadsheets anymore Recently I ran into a problem where doubleclicking on an excel file in the file system no longer opened the file in Excel.  Excel opened but would just give me [read] Keywords: google interface microsoft office

Ever since I upgraded to Mavericks I’ve been having a problem with Lync 2011 crashing.  It seems to happen most often when my macbook pro goes to sleep.  However it will also happen  during a lync call or a lync screen sharing.  I’ve gone through the normal upgrade steps with no success.  Recently I did a complete clean reinstall by doing the following steps: 1.  Use the following technote from Microsoft to delete LYNC from your MAC 2.  Deleting the  OC__KeyContainer__ in y [read] Keywords: mac macbook microsoft office password

So for the first time since 1996 I did not attend Lotusphere.  Yup, this year was a no show for Rivit.  Last year we questioned the value of attending but IBM asked us to attend.  This year we looked at the value of the show and decided that we could use our marketing dollars elsewhere. I tried to stay away from reading up on the show activity only cause I thought I’d feel like I missed out.  I read Wild Bill’s update this morning and got the sense that my decision was a right on [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusphere

So how does your market perceive Notes?
Wed, Sep 4th 2013 9:14a   Rob Salerno
Just wondering how your local markets perceive Notes these days. So before everyone starts ranting I just want to clarify a few things: I’ve worked with Notes since 1993. I’ve been to every Lotusphere except the 1st one. metaLogic was an IBM Premier Business Partner. Rivit Continues to be an IBM Business Partner. Rivit Continues to work with their client base on Domino related projects. Notes/Domino is still a better environment for development applications then the alternative.

79% of malicious attacks on mobile phones are on Android
Thu, Aug 29th 2013 9:14a   Rob Salerno
Reading the news (http://tinyurl.com/q83helf ) this morning that showed some interesting statistics concerning malware on mobile devices.  I have yet to see an attack on my IPhone.  Come to think about it, I never saw an attack on my blackberry either.  But, according to statistics 79% of all malicious attacks happen on android devices.  That’s a huge number.  Especially when you compare it to Apples number of 0.7% of all attacks. The article goes on to state that 44% of all Android [read] Keywords: apple blackberry google iphone mobile

Blackberry Continues its plummett
Thu, Aug 15th 2013 6:12a   Rob Salerno
OK… So its been a long time since I Blogged.  Its actually a good thing.  Things have been incredibly busy at Rivit.  We’ve been migrating more clients to Microsoft every month.  Our forecast is looking good.  Thank you to all of our customers! This morning I was reading the Newspaper and saw an article on Blackberry.  The news last week was that Blackberry continued to slide even after they released their new phones.  In fact they had lost 4 million subscribers in that same p [read] Keywords: apple blackberry desktop enterprise microsoft mobile
