PermaLink My Lotusphere URLs24.01.2008 14:58
I would like to share some URLs with you linking to new Lotus products/services announced at Lotusphere 2008. First is bluehouse, which is currently under development but accepts Beta nominations.
A new offering is Lotus Foundation, an offering for smaller companies. Lotus Foundation addresses customers with limited or no knowledge in Domino administration.
This is the full pressrelease.


PermaLink The Walt Disney World and Swan hotel - first negative experience19.01.2008 15:10
Sorry but I have to rant again. Sure, it is Lotusphere and I will be there, so why complain?
The problem is, I had a reservation at the SWAN but they are overbooked so they relocated me to antoher hotel in the area for some days. As there is no Lotusphere shuttle bus service I have to go by Taxi and the worst thing: the Swan is NOT paying the extra costs for needed transportation.
Update: I just checked out and found that I was not charged for the days being relocated. Asking at the check-out desk confirmed that these days are for free due to the relocation. I really wonder why they did not tell me before, this would have prevented me from ranting.

PermaLink NNotify for Lotus Notes, the new Notes Minder?07.01.2008 19:43
I have seen NNotify at one of my customers recently and tried it myself. Basically it gives you a better information about the simple fact, that you have a new mail.
The "Problem" with Lotus Notes is that the information about new mail is either a sound, a symbol in the Windows system tray or a popup window - or any combination of the three. Personally I *hate* the popup notification.
I hate to find that the text I was writing did not go into a document as I was writing into the new mail dialog.
I hate to try to work in the Admin client or Domino Designer and the new mail notification is constantly switching to the Notes client on every new mail.
The benefit of NNotify, compared to Notes Minder is that the flashing alert in the system tray is more visible than just a static "there is new mail"-icon.

What do you think?

PermaLink Use your Sametime Client to chat with IBM employees02.01.2008 11:43
I found this information via Chris Pepin who posted detailed instructions on how to configure an additional community in the Sametime Connect Client, the same procedure will work with Notes Notes 8.x (except basic configuration).
