Microsoft didn’t kill Wordperfect – Novell Did…. Sounds Like history is ready to repeat itself.

Posted by:

wordperfect LogoAn outstanding anti-trust suit existed against Microsoft on whether they had acted inappropriately in aiding in the demise of Wordperfect.  Microsoft took action and asked for the case to be closed.  The judge in the case found that it was not the actions of Microsoft that killed Wordperfect.  It was the actions, or rather, the inaction of Novell that killed the product.

At the time that Windows98 had been released, ...

Speed up Dropbox

Posted by:

Speedup DropboxJust learned something new today. Dropbox automatically limits your upload speeds. Fact is you can only upload as fast as your connection will allow it. But why let Dropbox automatically set that. Go to Dropbox in the menubar, click on Preferences – Network – Bandwidth and change your Upload rate to “Don’t limit”.

Domino Social Edition – Hype?

Posted by:

I’ve been looking at all the hype around the Domino Social Edition and trying to understand its positioning.  Coming out of Lotusphere I saw this as a way for IBM to slow the leak.  Inevitably, lack of position in the market would lead companies to migrate away from Domino.  Mail would be first.  Applications soon after.   One of the biggest inhibitors to migrating away from Domino is how to get rid of the applicaitons.  If I can’t get rid ...

Dlink – Router/Access point Wireless Restart problem

Posted by:

I have a Dlink DIR-655 router.  On paper the router sounds great.  However, it has a nasty access point problem.   The access point seems to continually go offline.  The only way you can get it to work when this happens, is to either reboot it or physically turn it off and on.

Like most devices, Dlink is no longer providing Firmware updates for this.  Weird because it still a big seller at the stores.  The last Firmware version was 2.00, ...

So maybe Domino isn’t dead yet…

Posted by:

Since becoming Rivit we’ve been focused more and more on the transition of our clients away from Domino or the notes client.  We’ve been working with Binary Tree (BTW. great people and great software – www.binarytree.com) on migrating email and working with our friends at DLI to move Domino Applications to a browser based domino framework using DOCOVA (www.docova.com).

However since November we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Domino World.  Especially on our product side.   We saw a huge uptake ...

Social Experiment – a bust…

Posted by:

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 ...

My Social Experiment – Status so far….

Posted by:

If you read my Blog yesterday than you know that I’m “smartphoneless”.  My smartphone stopped working and I can’t get a replacement for a couple of days. So I’ve decided to rough it and go with out one.  I’ve decided to go old school and do things that way we used to do them.

Now I didn’t just lose my smartphone… I lost my Iphone.  That’s a huge difference.  TheMissing Iphone ...

My Social Experiment – No smartphone for 5 days.

Posted by:

Damaged IphoneOver the weekend my Iphone 4 Died.  I was able to get an appointment at the Apple Genius Bar fairly quickly.  Good thing I bought Apple Care.   They quickly decided that it was dead and would replace it free of charge.  The “Genius” then told me that they were out of stock.  Apple’s warranty states that they have to replace “like” for “like”.  That means – No Upgrades ...

Setting up Sharepoint Foundations on your own workstation

Posted by:

We’ve been doing more and more work on SharePoint these days.  It’s not as nice as Domino.  It requires more effort to develop applications.  The simple things that we take for granted in Domino require some work.  But, once you get started working with it you can see why companies like it.   A lot of our client base has started to develop applications in Sharepoint or they are moving their Mission Critical Domino Applications over.

The nice thing about the Domino development environment ...
