From Hell to Heaven

Looks like finally IBM is taking the direction that a lot of us, web developers, wanted to see.

I've ranted before about the null support for other browser than IE in almost every IBM Product.

I haven't read it completely yet (a lot of work) but for sure I will take a brake with a 'cafe con leche' to give it a read.

Firefox 1.0.6 bug not fixed

When I installed Firefox 1.0.3 some time ago, I had the following bug. ( when right clicking it shows a blank space that is very annoying if you rigth click close to the top of the screen. Grrrrr )

I rolled back to 1.0 :-(.

Now that I read in vowe's site that 1.0.6 was released, I ran to download it and check if I could use it.

Nope. Is not fixed. I think that this time I let them know. :-S.

Ready for Domino/Notes R7 Beta 4

Via Ed Brill

I'm just downloading this new beta and I think that I will play a bit more with it than with previous versions.

Looks great that now are included some of the extended products in the download page, like Lotus Quickplace 7, Lotus Domino Document Manager 7, Lotus Sametime 7 and Lotus Enterprise Integrator 7.

Give it a try, this is a ship arriving to port.

Workplace Collaboration Services on iSeries

Today Luis Guirugay (a mate in a Tallard office in Venezuela) ping me on MSN to let me know of the release of Deploying IBM Workplace Collaboration Services on the IBM iSeries Server Redbook.

This work includes the participation of Mac Guidera who is one of the guys on the Lotus/Domino weblog gang.

Run for your copy now and start enjoying the best of both worlds.

Every now and then I use to do a real clean up of my machine. That means, a good backup of installers and a well defined folders structure (My Documents should shine).

Well, this is my list of applications that I MUST install after new "refresh". Very useful, now that I'm in the middle of a cleaning plan.

This is my list:
  • Webart
  • Notes
  • Domino
  • xaamp
  • AOL
  • MSN
  • Firefox
  • Firefox Plugins
  • JVM 1.5
  • Topstyle
  • VMWare
  • Winamp
  • Skype
  • RealPlayer
  • Quicktime
  • 1st Page 2000
  • Acrobat Reader
  • Puakma
  • DB2 UDB
  • NotesReloaded
  • nvu
  • ws_FTP LE

  • Apache
  • Tomcat
  • mySQL
  • PHP
  • NetBeans
  • VNC
  • Dia
  • Gimp

Good enough for me.

Alan Lepofsky speaks spanish

I've created another blog that will host some of the Alan Lepofsky Notes Tips so if you are a spanish speaker, now you can access some of the high quality Notes tips that Alan publish into his blog.

I am one of the fans of Alan since ages ago when we all started to discuss and learn more about Lotus Notes, so is a great honor to me to translate some of their tips.

Initially, some of their posts were translated to german thanks to Ray Guilliard from DaimlerChrysler. Well, now I'm the next in this crusade named Notes Hints and Tips Goes International .

I hope that you like it.

If you can't beat them, let them pay

Via Bloomberg

Microsoft agreed to pay $775 million directly into IBM wallet to resolve claims stemming from the U.S. government antitrust lawsuit in the late 1990s.

M$oft has been a rude competitor in SW industry, having that market share is hard for everybody to get a piece of the cake. At least they will share a little bit of it fortune.
