First, if you haven't already, read Francie's excellent post, Damned if you do. Then read Kathy's equally excellent perspective, Damned if you do... My Two Cents. Now, both of these women are behaving like ladies in their posts. I'm not gonna be a gentleman (*gasp*) in mine. First of all, if you read either of those entries and thought they were whining or being a "feminist bitch?" Fuck you. You ARE the problem. Get your head out of your ass.

OpenNTF: A Most Excellent Proposal
Wed, Jul 15th 2009 1:46a   Rob McDonagh
I won't rehash all the history here, but I want you all to go, right now, and read this proposal on the new OpenNTF licensing and project release process. You need an OpenNTF user account, so if you've somehow neglected to get one so far (really?!? What ARE you thinking?!?), create one - it's simple. Then read the proposal. Go ahead. I'm waiting. Right-click and open it in a new tab, read it and then come back here. Really. Get over there. OK, now that you've read it (...), here's the [read] Keywords: ibm application applications openntf ubuntu

Don't Ask, Don't Tell - and OpenNTF
Wed, May 13th 2009 4:52a   Rob McDonagh
There's been a bit of a brouhaha (yeah, you got me, I've been looking for excuses to use that word...) about some of the changes to OpenNTF recently. I was about to link to them, but then I realized - you don't need links, just look for the heaviest traffic on PlanetLotus. :D In case you've been living in a cave, IBM is officially involved in OpenNTF now, for the first time ever, and we're starting to see the impact of that.

It's Official. I'm a Posterous FanBoy...
Sat, Apr 11th 2009 5:52p   Rob McDonagh
Let me see. One week on Posterous: 31 posts. To get to 31 posts on this blog, counting backward? August, 2007. Yeah, roughly 18 months. So you could say that I'm mini-blogging a lot more than I maxi-blog. So, what's the difference? Ease, mostly. It's really, really easy to quickly post a video or picture or grab part of a web page. And it's really well suited for smaller items. I never blog smaller things here anymore, and especially not the ones where I just find something entertainin [read] Keywords: lotus blogging planet lotus widget

What is Smaller Than a Blog Post but Bigger Than a Tweet?
Mon, Apr 6th 2009 6:53a   Rob McDonagh
Know how I can never be bothered to Tweet anything unless I'm bored to tears and stuck somewhere? That may have come to an end. See, the reason I never post to Twitter (and rarely read it) is that 140 characters isn't enough room for anything meaningful. And I post here infrequently for exactly the opposite reason: it takes effort that I don't consider worthwhile unless I'm saying something significant, usually with LOTS of words. Guess what? There's a happy medium. No, Aunt Zelda isn't [read] Keywords: blogging facebook twitter

Oh, the rating? Yeah, I'm making fun of all the people who get bent out of shape over profanity. Don't like it? Leave. My fucking house, my fucking rules. Get used to it or get the fuck out. We now interrupt this profanity-laced rant for a profanity-laced public service announcement. You've heard the phrase, "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain," right? Well, pay no attention to the little Irishman hopping up and down and all around the Domino blogosphere (aka yel [read] Keywords: domino ilug notes

Before I say anything else, allow me to say "thank you" to the people who commented on my last blog post. While I was (and am) serious about not requiring, much less expecting, any sympathy for my ongoing struggle with depression and anxiety, I have to admit that the responses were a very pleasant surprise. In fact, it astonished me to see that several people lauded my bravery in going public about the details of my disease while simultaneously "outing" themselves as fellow sufferers.

Notes on Depression
Wed, Feb 11th 2009 12:37a   Rob McDonagh
No, not that kind of Notes... I've been struggling with my depression lately. I had to postpone an article for The View and I withdrew as a speaker from The View's Admin/Developer 2009 in Boston. I haven't blogged much, either about technology or about politics (even though I'm thrilled with President Obama). I haven't written any cool, new code using the techniques I learned at Lotusphere. I haven't done a lot of things. Since this disease (I call it The Black Beast) is preventi [read] Keywords: admin ibm lotus lotusphere notes email facebook skype twitter

Microsoft Spoiler: Software Titan is Titanic
Wed, Jan 14th 2009 1:04a   Rob McDonagh
At Microsoft's annual mid-January press conference, Steve Ballmer shocked and awed the crowd of reporters with a stunning rendition of "Putting on the Ritz," complete with soft shoe dance routine. The genial giant then launched into an announcement of Microsoft's plans to earn hundreds of billions of dollars by eliminating Lotus Notes once and for all. Microsoft released statistics indicating that, upon removal of IBM itself from the Lotus customer list, the Notes market share becomes "teen [read] Keywords: ibm lotus notes applications database exchange exchange facebook microsoft social software twitter

On the off chance that you read this blog, don't pay attention to any other Lotus Geek blogs (and thus haven't seen the Lotusphere schedule yet), but still care who is speaking at Lotusphere: Yes, I'm speaking again this year. For the third straight year, Julian NSFTools Robichaux and I will be co-presenting. This year, though, we have two sessions instead of one. That's right - for the same (not particularly) low cost, you get twice as much of the McDonagh-Robichaux Variety Show!
