Back to old school bookmarks… sorta…

19 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

What I’ve come to realize as I looked at various ways to manage my bookmarks across multiple systems is twofold: There is no application right now that would match my ideal deployment/runtime scenario I don’t need to overcomplicate things, given my usage patterns Let’s backtrack for a minute, so you can appreciate the evolution (or…

Evernote successor is called… Lotus Notes

17 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

I’ve been trying to love Evernote. Really. I had it auto-start every time I booted. It sat there in my tray ready to be used, I installed the Firefox extension to send content to it automatically (that worked very well, btw) and I even used it as a DDE target for our telephony software, so…

Got some more opensource ‘toys’ to play with

17 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

Since last week, I’ve decided to sample a few more apps to inhabit the arseneault.ca domain. The everlasting quest for the perfect wiki may be coming to an end as I’ve taken a look at both phpwiki and pmwiki. phpWiki just took forever to unzip, with close to 10Mb of content, which seemed on the…

WebSphere Products that are not in the WebSphere pillar

13 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

First, let me explain what’s a pillar. For anyone that’s delt with IBM, like any large organizations, we have different teams that handle different product sets. This allows us to become specialists over a smaller number of products, which in turn helps you get answers quicker when you call us for support. I’m part of…

Simplify your daily life

13 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

Sometimes, you speak to people who want to change, but attack it from such a narrow angle that you wonder how it’s ever going to make a difference for them. I personally think that small changes have only a small impact. I don’t mind big changes, such as changing jobs, moving to a new city…

13 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

My colleague Luis Suarez blogged about one of those try it once kinda web apps, called EgoSurf. Essentially, once you plug your name and domain name (what, you don’t have one?!?), it will go out and search all the familiar sites we know (Google, Technorati, Del.icio.us, etc) and assign a point value to each appearance…

Disabling « Get Mail » button

12 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

I’ve got a nasty habit of pressing the Get Mail button when I’m pretty certain that there aren’t any. Why I do it is beyond me. Because Lotus Notes lets me schedule the replication of my mail and other databases on a 7-day basis anyway. And I have. And it’s set to replicate every 15…

12 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

What do you know: an opensource software has been available for ages, it’s pertains to my cable provider and I only learn about it now! It’s referred to as VCMU and is a registered project in SourceForge. It really serves a very simple purpose: most of the plans on Videotron are limited in terms of…

Why am I still waiting?

11 janvier 2006 | 0 commentaire

For the last two days, as I try to launch Visio, I get this box telling me it wants to update my installation, and of course it fails, because at IBM, we install our software from an intranet website, and everything’s pre-packaged for us (which is good and bad, depending on how you look at…
