WikidPad successor is called … EverNote

11 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

After having tried for a week to adapt, this desktop wiki just ain’t working for me. I already run MediaWiki on a server, so I know wikis. But the whole notion of interlinking my notes doesn’t seem to hold, given that most of what I wanted (I realize now) was a way to take notes…

I’ve been looking for a simple and free software package to build my brother a website for his woodworking business. I *could* use RAD, but what happens when he wants to make changes 6 months down the line… drop $3,000 for a license… I think not. I then stumbled on an offering we have on…

IBM Workplace installation

8 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

You might think all I do is install software, and no, I actually also do work… But as said before, I find that installing my software helps me understand how it works and answer some of the initial questions our clients ask me in pre-sales situations. Today, I install the IBM Workplace Version 2.6. This…

Contributing to Wikipedia

8 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Well, it had to happen one day… I finally signed up for a Wikipedia account last week. The reason? I didn’t feel like the entry on WebSphere did it justice.

Managing day-to-day information

6 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Since I like to improve how I work, and make it faster and more convenient if possible, my latest quest has been to find software that would let me take notes on the fly, quickly find them back and provide cross-referencing capabilities, a la wiki. Of course, I’m a fan of Lotus Notes and all,…

Happy user of Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files

6 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

I’m always looking for software that can take care of boring tasks for me without intervention. For linux, one can easily hack a cron job with rsync and they’ve got a poor’s man backup in little time. For Windows, things get a little messier.

Installing WebSphere Integration Developer V6

4 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Well, it’s been rather busy lately with most of my colleagues attending the WebSphere Technical Exchange in Miami. When 60% (3 out of 5) of your team leaves, it makes a BIG difference. While I’ve still got my hands full with the day-to-day stuff (sales requests, RFPs, sizings, dept projects, etc), I still need that…

GDS 2 now supports multiple Notes databases

3 novembre 2005 | 0 commentaires

Well, thanks to Google, I now have the-mother-of-all-search-engines in Google Desktop Search for Enterprise V2. It now sports the same sidebar (if you’re into that) as the regular Desktop Search Version 2, but includes the security. One of my gripes with the previous Enteprise edition, as I had previously discussed on this blog, was that…
