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 ...

Xbox 360 – Microsoft’s Trojan Strategy win’s the battle for the living room

Posted by:

I’m an avid Gamer.  I’m a true Xbox fan, spending many hours playing Gears of War or Call of Duty.   But years ago I also recognized the Xbox strength as a Media Center.    I have a vast library of media that includes Music, photos and video that I share to my Xbox driven family room.  In recent years we’ve had to augment the entertainment unit with PS3’s and Wii’s but everyone still prefers to use the Xbox.

Well it seems I’m ...

Can RIM find a way to be successful?

Posted by:

Ok. I already said I’m an IPhone bigot. To add to that my next laptop will be an Apple product. Yes, I think I drank the koolaid. But I still have to find some way of supporting a successful Canadian IT company. Right now its the biggest and best IT Company in Canada.
