EOL for Watson Workspace

Tuesday, January 15, 2019 9:54 AM UTC
Today IBM officially announced the end of Watson Workspace. I feel somewhat relieved as I am now allowed to write about it. I know about the sunset for almost three months now but I wasn’t allowed to publicly talk or write about it - which is stupid. Actually it was planned to announce this at Think in February - even more stupid. Watson Workspace Announ [...] 

Letsencrypt for Domino - without LE4D

Saturday, January 12, 2019 1:53 AM UTC
I used to use Midpoints' LE4D tool to maintain the SSL certificate on my webserver. With version 2 I couldn't use it anymore as this needs FP8+ to be installed (or even version 10.0.x). This server runs FP7, so I had to manually update my certs - which was annyoing. If you happen to have a suitable server than I strongly recommend using LE4D instead as this is the luxur [...] 

Gone - but still here

Tuesday, December 25, 2018 1:43 AM UTC
On December 21 IBM announced the Champions for 2019. I’ve been around this wonderful group of professionals since 2015 but I’ll have to leave for the next year. If there once will be a returning is questionable as IBM sold the main ICS products to HCL recently. I am expecting to run for something similar HCL might run such as an „HCL CWP Advocate“ program. If [...]

Quick-Tip: Resource Aggregation on Domino 10

Friday, December 14, 2018 11:22 AM UTC
I just noticed a problem - or at least a different behaviour - with Domino 10 and the resource aggregation feature of an XPages application. If you ever have a problem with aggregated resources such as Javascripts and CSS files not being loaded (entirely) then remember this post. The scenario Just create a new NSF, a blank XPage and one or two Javascript libs (client side). Then add those li [...] 

[SOLVED] Help wanted: no mp4 playback on my MBP

Saturday, November 10, 2018 9:06 PM UTC
This post is a shout out for help and suggestions. 2 days ago I found out that my MBP wasn’t able to playback mp4 anymore - or let’s say, not as usual - but wait for it. I tweeted about it: DO NOT INSTALL the latest Mojave beta - it breaks Home and Photos (video playback) — Oliver Busse ✫ (@zeromancer1972) 8. November 2018 But it’s more complex.  The s [...] 

Quick-Tip: Disable Screenshot Preview in macOS Mojave

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 7:03 PM UTC
Bothered by the screenshot preview that came with macOS Mojave and acts similar to the one on iOS? The problem is not that the preview appears so that you could edit the picture before saving it finally, the problem is that even if you don’t use this feature it takes a while (a couple of seconds) for the image to appear at the location you set for them (desktop is the default). I just dis [...] 

Cover me - mesh networking

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 10:31 PM UTC
It’s a few years ago since Google launched the first consumer mesh networking solution, simply called „Google Wifi“. You could get up to 3 devices that build a mesh network. Since then there were a few others from Netgear, AVM and Linksys - and all of the named are quite expensive (250+ EUR). What is a Mesh Network? Simple answer: it’s just a wireless router syst [...]

Quick-Tip: Remove Tile from IDMA Recent Apps

Friday, November 2, 2018 10:37 AM UTC
I just found a way to remove a tile from the "Recent Applications" home screen in IDMA. There is a way to open the old workspace page (though not officially supported and not working as expected): create an action button in a view or form of an app that you can open in IDMA as action formula use @Command([WindowWorkspace]) When you click this action it will bring up the o [...]
