Howdy, stranger!

Welcome to my cabin in the woods!

This site is dedicated to (web) development with IBM Collaborative Solutions (esp. IBM Notes/Domino and XPages), work, life and other stuff I may find important enough to write about. The rules are simple: if it fits in here I post it - and you are invited to comment on that if you like.

My thoughts on IBM Verse, Workspace and others

Tuesday, November 22, 2016 10:33 PM UTC
Wow, this has been a very busy year so far. Busy in my daily work in the development team with pushing Aveedo to the current state and IBM pushing their stuff to the „outside“ world. This is no rant but just my personal thoughts. What IBM did so far The most important news this year was the commitment to Domino support at least until 2021. Of course they offer this as Domino is t [...]

Mac & I - first „PMR“

Sunday, November 6, 2016 12:19 AM UTC
I am not sure if a support ticket is called PMR in the Apple world, but I opened my first one this evening. I experienced some trouble on the iMac since I installed macOS Sierra 10.12.1 update about a week ago. This is how the problem occurs: At least once a day my desktop completely freezes while surfing with Safari. Facebook is my homepage and it rarely occurs that the desktop completely [...] 

Mac & I - Mission Complete

Thursday, October 27, 2016 1:01 AM UTC
Today I added the last bit to my setup - and to my personal convenience. I bought an old iMac 27“ from late 2009. This machine is still awesome. The specs: 16GB, 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD, ATI 4850 plus wireless keyboard, Magic Mouse (which I don’t use) and another Trackpad 1. Sierra was preinstalled. This machine is huge and the display only has one pixel failure - I can [...] 

Quick-Tip: Solving issues with Fixpack installer on Linux

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 4:35 PM UTC
Some days ago I encountered a problem for the first time installing a Fixpack for Domino on Linux. I don’t know why I didn’t come across with that before but I guess I was lucky until then. The problem was that the install script stopped immediately right after hitting ENTER in the console. The OS was Ubuntu server 16.04 LTS. With the help from the XPages Slack (domino-admin ch [...] 

Mac & I - Seperation and Combining

Monday, October 17, 2016 10:24 PM UTC
The idea of the past days was to separate my various workspaces I am using. I have a work-workspace that was located in our work-room (yes, we have something like this for different tasks) and a space where my home recording studio resides. The latter was a mess. Cables, devices, computers, monitors - and instruments of course. As I am using my Macbook Pro on a daily basis now for private stuff I [...]
