Today I registered and tried out LotusLive: apps.lotuslive.com.LotusLive is a web browser based global conference tool, which works very similar to a SameTime conference.The benefit over SameTime is that you don't have to install any software (only browser plugins, and a bunch of SSL certificates), and that the meeting is available on the internet, globally.The people who are invited to a meeting (anyone can be invited who has internet access) can use Firefox or IE, but the host needs both brows
After a year of testing Domino 8, it still has bugs which prevent it from being used in production.
Agent Manager crashes Domino
HTTP agents which open a view and user closes the web page before the agent finishes, causes the agent never to end I suspect this agent orphanization happens also under other circumstances, but it does never happen in 7.0.3
Domino 8.0.1 on openSUSE 11.0 has been very stable though, so I suspect that it is mostly Windows Domino 8 related
The recently release
Some things I have experienced:Domino 8.0.1 fatal bugs:- Domino 8.0.1 on an AIX5L 5.3 server keeps crashing several times per day- Domino 8.0.1 on one Windows32 server has crashed 4 times total- Domino 8.0.1 on another Windows32 server crashed today for the first time- Domino 8.0.1 x32 on Windows x64 makes Notes C API Terminate() call to hang for several minutes.Notes 8.0.1 fatal bugs:- Notes 8.0.1 has caused the harddisk's Master File Table to get corrupted multiple times on 2 different PCs, ob
I think he must be mad at me because I didn't deliver the next generation Domino Search engine to him yet (for IdeaJam). Well, it's not 100% ready for production, and needs lots of manual setup to make it work for custom applications. I'm planning to make an easy frontend interface so that it can be used like the normal Domino Search engine.The interface will including things like include/exclude lists of field names, update frequency, etc...But deleting my comments... I think it's the biggest s
If you want the cheapest network area storage with the biggest harddisk space on the planet, then there is only one choice for you. Siipi Roc features up to 11 harddisk slots: 6 internal 3.5" slots, 4 external 5.25" slots, 1 external 3.5" slot, equipped with 750GB Western Digital drives in the Antec P182 black case, running at Raid 0,1,5,6,10 with the Asus P5K-E motherboard, an Intel Quad Core CPU, 4GB Kingston RAM, and even a GeForce 7 series 3D card on openSUSE 10.3 64-bit.For an amazing low p
It just works:I tried Notes 8.0 earlier on Ubuntu, and it was a bit crashy. But with 8.0.1 on openSUSE it seems more stable, when you learn to avoid certain things :)I'll try to work with this setup a few weeks and see if I need Windows XP anymore.On my work Laptop, the ThinkPad T61p, I have also PCLinuxOS 2008 minime, it will be a good challenger against my home openSUSE. Also kubuntu 7.10 x32 is still in the run, when one of those fails.My server has been already running for a long time Domino
AIX has a command to change the size of a partition on the fly.Lets make the root directory 4GB bigger:bash-3.00# chfs -a size=+4G /Filesystem size changed to 60555264Lets look how the filesystem looks:bash-3.00# df -gFilesystem GB blocks Free %Used Iused %Iused Mounted on/dev/hd4 28.88 24.75 15% 5471 1% //dev/hd2 4.62 3.23 31% 33600 5% /usr/dev/hd9var 0.12 0.11 11% 433 2% /var/dev/hd3 0.12 0.11 11%
First we had e-mails. Our paper mails, artistic handwriting and other personalized communication was gone.Then we had websites. Our e-mails were reliefed and we could share information with everyone.Then we had blogs. Our websites were updated less frequently and all structured information was gone.Then we had rss feeds. Our custom look and style of blogs was gone and only raw information was left.Then we had technorati. Actually I forgot about it completely.Then we had ideajam. This was the fir
Look at their URL:I wonder if they are running on AIX also...
At least in the core functions the new ODS48 (Notes/Domino 8 database format) is not remarkably faster than ODS43 (Notes/Domino 6/7 database format).I made a few tests with new blank databases (one for ODS43 and one for ODS48):First I created an agent which creates 100000 documents (no fields).The first test was to run the agent from the Notes 8 Basic Client:notes:ods43: 90.914sods48: 90.547sThe remaining tests were done using Mozilla Firefox using the Preview function in the Notes 8 Basic Clien
Today I met him again, and he told me that he has just started his own blog a few days ago.Please welcome Vladislavs Tatarincevs (or short: Vlad) from Latvia!He is often referred by my colleagues as my "Master" (because I often learn new things from him), but I tend to say that it's a fruitful cooperation between me and him (since I also can teach him some things). Call it 50/60 if you want, but not 0/100 :)My last LotusSphere was in 2005, so he is a tad ahead of me, since he has probably now PC
I read on planetlotus.org about Bob Balaban's test of the speed difference between s="" vs len(s)=0 checking ( http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/bpmpblog.nsf/dx/performance-testing-technique ).My test agent looks like this:Sub Initialize Dim n As Long, ni As Long n=10 ' number of test repeats Dim t1 As Double, t2 As Double, tn As Double, tt As Double Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, k As Long Const x=10000 Const s="xxxxxxxxxx" For ni=1 To n t1=Timer For i=1 To x For j=1
I have deployed Domino 8.0.1 for x32, x64, AIX, Linux so far (Experimental, Research, Production (Linux) servers), and Notes 8.0.1 for x32 (Production Clients).No problems have occured except the problems which were caused by "officially not supported by IBM" configurations:- Domino 64-bit + DB2- Domino 8.0.1 + Quickr 22.214.171.124- DWA/Lite + Nokia (Symbian)The next deployments will continue on Development, then Test, followed by Stage, and finally Production servers after a meeting with our consulta
After evaluating the Notes/Domino 8.0.1 release, I found a few things which should be really fixed and done before doing anything else:- Domino 8.0.1 64-bit support for NSFDB2. Currently it destroys DB/2 databases and permanently destroys the DB/2 interface too, so it has to be reinstalled for Domino 8.0.1 32-bit.- Symbian support for Notes Traveller. Nobody really uses Windows Mobile devices (vanishing 12%), the vast majority on earth uses Symbian devices (65% market share).- Symbian support fo
And another 5 minutes later:Domino 8.0.1 64-bit with DB/2 9.1.3 64-bit running on Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise 64-bit on IBM System x3650 with Dual Quad Core (=8 cores).Oh, that reminds me I need to upgrade to DB/2 9.5 Viper next.
Finally some progress again, after it was stuck for long time in Step 4, it went today to Step 5: Gold Build:http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/r5fixlist.nsf/(Progress)/801Maybe 8.0.1 is released even this week, or latest next week.
I could say it's the most beautiful and effective desktop so far, technically and visually:See PictureWhat's missing from the picture? You guessed it right: Lotus Notes 8.0.1 for Linux!But that will come very soon...
Finally I made the switch from Windows to Linux. I decided to go for openSUSE 10.3, as it has the fastest I/O of all operating systems in the world. This site, http://www.siipi.com is now running on openSUSE 10.3.The installation was just as easy as installing Ubuntu (which is actually easier than installing Windows), but openSUSE gives you more freedom to make choices. It was literally just like inserting the CD and turning the power on, I didn't need to install any 3rd party drivers or anythin
If you want a HUGE disk storage, for example for daily backups of multiple servers, then this baby - the IBM DS4200 Express - is the only choice for you: for an amazing price of 4600 and 512 per 750GB additional disk, one 3U rack supports 16x 750GB = 12TB, and with optional expansion units (3U, 16x disks each) this single SAN supports even up to 112x 750GB = 84TB!Similar systems with just 20x disks cost up to 20000 from other manufacturers, and consume even more rack U space due to horizontal pl
The guard riddle in the movie Labyrinth (with David Bowie) reminds me of the everlasting battle between IBM and Microsoft, which was brought up once again during the last LotusSphere 2008.Solve the riddle, and you will know the absolute truth between the claims of IBM and Microsoft.SPOILER WARNING! Don't watch the video before you have solved the riddle yourself.Here goes the riddle dialog:There are 2 doors. Sarah needs to find out which door leads to the castle at the center of the labyrinth, a
I already knew for many years how the Old Testament was compiled (using the Babylonian Enuma Elish and it's original source from the Sumerians), but Jesus and the New Testament remained a mystery to me, until today.Here is the full source code of Jesus and the New Testament, and it's all Open Source and Free:http://www.zeitgeistmovie.comIt seems religion has been now completely disassembled and there is no mystery anymore. Way to go science!
