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 ...Continue Reading →
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 ...Continue Reading →
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..

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 ...Continue Reading →
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.
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 a blank ...Continue Reading →
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 Continue Reading →
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 Continue Reading →
Just wondering how your local markets perceive Notes these days.
So before everyone starts ranting I just want to clarify a few things:
However, we’ve been seeing a significant drop in the Domino Market ...Continue Reading →
