I'm glad I didn't buy the Nokia N95 yet, as this could be a more professional upgrade to my Nokia Communicator 9500: the new Nokia Communicator E90.What makes this phone interesting?
GPS device and real-time map navigation system using it
Decent keyboard and display
Usable quality loudspeaker for conference calls
Stable multiple mobile network connections
Quad Band GSM
3 week lasting nonstop use battery
Of course it also has 3.2Mpx camera, video, FM radio, mp3 player, WLAN, 3G, etc... b
I just saw a variant of this on a wall of a building in Helsinki. But as a table version, it brings even more possibilites. I like especially the part where the guy takes a photo with a digital camera, then puts the camera on the table and immediately the taken photo shows on the table, then he even moves the photo into a mobile phone, which is also on the table:Looks even easier to use than Lucid in my opinion, since you don't need a mouse or keyboard, but can use your fingers directly. However
Project Majami is going forward again, as I got an opportunity to meet the singer of the band soon. I've started to create some sound samples for ModTracker, so we can record the vocals while he can sync his singing speed to the final song.After the singing is recorded, it's just up to me to play the final instrument tracks and finish the song. I think this will be the main guitar, as it has some unique distortion and sound: Main Comp Guitar (this is just a quick test, so it contains life errors
When you launch the Domino 7.0.2FP2 incremental installer on an Domino 7.0.2 server, it gives you an info that a few files will be updated.When you launch the Domino 7.0.2FP1 incremental installer on a Domino 7.0.2 server, it gives you info that some other files will be updated.When you launch the Domino 7.0.2FP2 incremental installer on a Domino 7.0.2FP1 server, it gives you the info that the files which were updated in 7.0.2FP1 are going to be "updated" again, and also the files which the Domi
Just got an e-mail from IBM saying that I can download IBM Lotus Domino 7.0.2 Fix Pack 2 eAssembly from my Passport Advantage Express account.I love it when a service works!And I can get nasty when a service doesn't work: The Greenhouse Effect.
Wow, that was fast, it was really Quickr!I totally missed Quickr 1.0 as it's now already version 8 :)Hmm, well this starts to look like a true companion product of ND8, so should we start talking soon in terms of NDQ8?Maybe you can see where I'm coming from, as IBM Lotus has made this new trinity to look very synergetic:| Lotus Notes 8 | Lotus Domino 8 | Lotus Quickr 8 |And stay tuned also with the latest headlines on The Quickr Blog.
Just went to some innocent looking blog site (Ray Davies), which asked me to register to some Sony Vaio Forum to post a comment, and then it happened: There was an Java applet on the site, and my Firefox went totally nuts. Now I can't even open Firefox anymore and had to launch Internet Explorer!People, take this as a lesson. Java is bad, very bad. Java is our worst enemy, it's dead evil and without any morale. It will destroy anything what it can get, memory, firefox, and at least trying to slo
This seems to be an rather unexplored and unexperienced area. While we all know what the limits of Domino are, there seems not be much information out how to avoid and duck those limits. I am facing some of those limits now, and have started to search for possible and feasible solutions to overcome them.First there is the 64KB limit of document size, which means all field values together (not RichText fields) cannot exceed 64KB, else the mail.box is not able to send the mails anymore. Ok, that c
A common difficulty in Domino is to calculate the correct URL of an embedded image in a RichText field.When a WebService which should return the correct URL of any image, may it be embedded or attached as file, is called from a remote server, the WebService should look at the HTML source of the web page where the picture is embedded, and then parse the contents to find the picture file URL (search for "img" and then the next "src" tag) and send the URL of the picture from the parsed content to

Just saw Ed posting an article about Lotus Notes related GTD, and that reminded me to do things.It seems that GTD is even a registered trademark of David Allen & Co, which seems to have some good ideas about organizing your time and tasks.Some years ago I had an related idea, the Case Classification Code, but compared to GTD it was a more specific approach to a partial solution of the whole process. Before you can start to do things, you need to brainstorm what you have in mind, and categori
It seems that many Blog owners have made their sites unusable, because of the fear of spamming. For example Christopher Byrne, Damien Katz, Al Gore Blogs don't immediately show up your comments, if at all. This is clear win against the spammers, they made you to degrade your online services to a manually driven service.Siipi Blog has however been invulnerable until now (knock the wood against any spam attacks, since we don't use any of the commercially available Blog site templates, but a very
The sheer power of IBM System p servers is simply amazing. Nearly 300 Unix servers can be easily consolidated into just 6 System p servers, according to this IBM Press Release.This is not just the tip of an iceberg, but an remarkable factor to reduce also the global warming.Global warming has already gone too far. If you want to be helpful somehow, save at least planet earth. Although this is about an Hollywood movie, it's not all fiction, not even nearly all. The point is to give you an motive
IBM System p! With a (or as many as you want) Power5-7 based (vector scalable) CPUs.Yes, it's the good old RS/6000 system in new clothes - the system which has also earlier beaten all world records in speed and performance. Even the God of Supercomputers, IBM Blue Gene/L and it's honorable ancestor, the Deep Blue, is a System p after all.Macintosh made the wrong choice, they switched from Power5 to Intel. Windows' limits are breached.Customers who want the maximum performance and value for their
While the 7-Zip packer has been out since Year 2000, it has been relatively unknown. It's always amazing how the ZIP format is the best known packing format, while it's packing ratio is plain horrible. I've used RAR format for years, and it's has become also quite known in the professional computer scene. However, the 7-Zip format is the most advanced packing format known today, using the LZMA compression algorithm. It's simply amazing how much better it can pack than ZIP or RAR (ZIP 5 means Win
You can Google for OneCare, the net is full of reports of fatal to catastrophic reports about Microsoft's newest security program.Here is just one. Similarly fatal problem were also reported with earlier Microsoft OneCare versions, and now their latest OneCare 1.5 is worse than any virus you could ever have.Some people have lost 3.5 years of their work and life because of this, some have lost even more.It deletes whole e-mail databases of Outlook when it detects a virus, which might not even be
I added some new features and bug fixes to the Siipi Blog Template:■ Added display of last modified date of last reply of Hot Topics (=Blogs which have the latest replies)■ Added display of number of Blogs in each Area in the Area List (this is kinda cool, it uses the NotesViewEntry.DescendantCount property)■ Removed 1 line gap before the Area List (it was a
)■ Added Paragraph break after the Referers List to avoid automatic line feed in the first displayed Blog■ Changed the "ND8 POWERED" logo
I've haven't earlier checked what this Technorati Blog thing is all about. But it sounds like it's something useful, something which connects Blog entries which belong to the same category from any Blog sites together.When I signed up it asked me to claim my own Blog, and then it wanted to verify that my Blog is my Blog, so it asked me to put this HTML code on my Blog: Technorati Profile
I found this Episode 56 streaming .mp3 (podcast) over on Bruce Elgort's blog. I think it's a must to listen to for all people who are interested in Notes/Domino 8.He explains the new Composite Applications very clearly, which makes them easy to understand. Bruce Elgort and Julian Robichaux are also asking him questions and give additional comments.There's a few words about the new Java/Eclipse based Domino Designer in R8.5 or RNext.It was also Andre's first podcast ever, and I hope more great st
I found this movie on Jon Udell's blog, and I was just simply amazed by this excellent movie how to tweak and maintain a lawn mower.But tweaking it is not everything what matters, it's also the sound it makes, and especially the sound it doesn't make.Compared to other cybertech megablaster lawn mowers which make a horrible noise and pollute the nature, this one performs with a noise level standard which is millions of years ahead in technology, safes nature and earth for your children and their
Notes 8 offers yet never before seen possibilities for modding and customizing. I will start to make a simple tool in C++ to change things I have have found out so far (no, I don't read manuals, I read config files!), besides there are no manuals AFAIK for the things I need, at least no public ones.The first version will probably include just very basic things like changing the IBM logo to your own company logo, changing unread mark colors (this is where Nathan got excited about the possibilites
