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.

Schalten - aber smart!Post in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Seit einiger Zeit befasse ich mich mit Smarthome und Homeautomation. Die Möglichkeiten, die sich bieten, sind vielschichtig und bringen etwas mehr Komfort ins eigene Zuhause. Die Dekoration mit unterschiedlichen Lichtquellen und Szenen macht mir dabei am meisten Spaß. Da einige Lichtquellen wie z.B. günstige LED-Strips meist nicht “smart” sind, wollte ich sie wenigstens [...]

Sunday, July 30, 2017 11:23 AM UTC
Now with the 4th beta of iOS 11 I gave it another try on my iPad Pro 9.7". I was quite happy before with it on this device (not on the iPhone though) and I heard a lot of positive things about the new version from July 24. It seems Apple is seeding updates every 14-16 days now which is great. Besides from others blogged about (new icons and animations and other useless stuff it's one t [...]

How I bricked my iPhone [updated]

Even wth beta 2 released some d [...]
