Présence à WordCamp Montréal

18 août 2010 | 0 commentaires

Je me suis enregistré pour la conférence WordCamp Montréal dès que c’était possible. Ce sera la première fois que j’assiste à une conférence en tant que consultant indépendant, et non comme employé d’IBM. Tout au long de ma carrière, j’ai toujours porté attention au développement de mes compétences techniques et de mes abilités d’affaire. Je…

L’aventure (re)commence

1 juin 2010 | 0 commentaires

Mon premier emploi après avoir gradué de l’École des Sciences de la Gestion (UQAM) en 1994, je me le suis créé de toute pièces. Fort d’un baccalauréat en Finance, et après avoir fait application sans grande conviction dans quelques firmes de courtage à escompte, j’ai finalement décidé de démarrer mon entreprise de services informatiques. À…

12 décembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

While I have made the switch to WordPress for my business and family websites, a friend of mine is still using Mambo for her medical clinic because it’s the right fit for what she needs to provide to her customer base. I had installed and configured the site a few months ago, and hadn’t really…

Cleaned up my Mac, to prepare for backups

12 décembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

I finally rethought the way I managed my documents on my Mac and moved stuff around my volumes, so I could do a proper backup. Since my wife and I use different profiles, I figured the data for two of our most used apps (besides Safari) should be on a shared drive. So I moved…

What if I move my desktop inside a virtual machine?

2 décembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Alessandro Perilli does some interesting thinking out loud, about what it could be like to move your everyday desktop to a virtual machine… How much this will cost? Today I can have a virtualization solution at no cost thanks to the just born VMware Player. Or, if I need more, can invest a small amount…

Cleaning up VMware directory

30 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

I’ve been creating so many VMware images that my HDD are close to full… and I have 160Gb of space on my two extra drives (one internal, the other a USB2 external enclosure). I’ve brought it down to the bare essential, and kept the ISO for the OS/products I may need to recreate if the…

Installed WebSphere (WAS) Community Edition 1.0 in VMware

29 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

I spent the better part of the late evening/early morning yesterday (today?) getting acquainted with WebSphere Application Server Community Edition v1.0. I had tried to play with Gluecode in the past, as we were going through the acquisition, and the installation was far from easy. This time, things are much smoother, even for a relative…

How to plan your todos when there’s just too many of them…

28 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Sound familiar? You’re working hard, managing multiple todo lists, checking your notes from your wiki/blog/cms/ when all of a sudden, you’re finding that nothing get done anymore, or at an absurdly slow pace. I’ve found a little trick lately that’s helped me get more done, as it tells me where to focus my efforts, in…

Changes to my Online Presence chart

27 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Earlier this year, I had shared with you a chart depicting all my presence points on the internet and on IBM’s intranet. It showed what kind of content I shared, the underlying engine used and the estimated update frequency. More importantly, it showed a few question marks, where I was questionning whether it made sense…

Expired domain… how could I forget

27 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Well, I let my domain lapse and the minute it does, my access was cut. It took me a few hours to figure it out. Funny thing is the same thing happened for another domain name I manage for a friend, just months ago. At that point, I had put a recurring yearly reminder in…
