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.

Domino V11 outlook

Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at 10:06 PM UTC
I missed today's webinar about Domino V11, the beta and what is coming. Thanks to Twitter I got the most important facts right away.  I won't summarize it all but I just wanted to point you to the latest HCL blog post that has it all: links to the replay (only available f you registered before) and some additional informations. In addition, Gab Davis also has  [...] 

Summer Breeze

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 8:39 PM UTC
It‘s summer time. I am on vacation which means I am doing only things I like to do. I sleep when I have to, I eat when I need to and I sit in front of my devices when I want to. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I am not doing things related to my work life. HCL After the latest call with our HCL representatives I was onboarded to HCL Leap. HCL was very responsive to my que [...] 

Preiswertes Keyboard fürs iPad Pro 12.9 (2018)Post in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Monday, July 22, 2019 at 6:04 PM UTC
Tl;Dr; bei dem Preis kann man nichts falsch machen Gerade für das große iPad wollte ich eine richtige Tastatur, damit ich das Teil auch mal im Meeting als Schreibmaschine nutzen kann und nicht immer gleich den Laptop nutzen muss. Leider ist das Apple-Pendant schweineteuer (220 EUR) wobei der Rundumschutz auch zu wünschen übrig lässt. Dieses Case hier schützt das i [...] 

iPadOS - some impressions

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 9:00 PM UTC
I installed the first public beta of iPadOS (aka iOS 13) on my iPad Pro 9.7 to test it. The first wave was a bit disappointing due to crashes and some apps not working with it (e.g. Evernote). I really enjoyed the dark mode though. The new „Today“ widget wasnĖ‹t one of the favorite things. It seems a bit strange to have something else on the desktops other than apps or groups. At least [...] 

Going Pro. Big Pro.

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at 8:00 PM UTC
I am using my iPad Pro 9.7 from 2016 for several years now and I love it. I got it in 2017 when I extended my contract with my mobile carrier. At this time I didn‘t need a new phone so I grabbed the iPad. Now as this baby has been paid in full and also got outdated I thought it was time to upgrade. My carrier offered the 12.9“ iPad Pro from 2018 even 50 bucks cheaper than you can or [...] 

It's summer time - build your own smart thermometer

Friday, July 5, 2019 at 4:23 PM UTC
During the past days I played around with another Raspberry Pi project. I love this little computer which is so versatile! I built a thermometer / hygrometer with a Pi 2 for testing and today with a Pi Zero W using the sensor DHT22. I bought a pre-built sensor that includes the 4.7kOhm resistor already on a stable PCB and also comes with a pre-configured 3-wire cable to connect it to the GP [...]
