Howdy, stranger!

Welcome to my cabin in the woods!

This site is dedicated to (web) development with IBM Collaborative Solutions (esp. IBM Notes/Domino and XPages), work, life and other stuff I may find important enough to write about. The rules are simple: if it fits in here I post it - and you are invited to comment on that if you like.

Spaß mit O2, Teil 2Post in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Ich reise kommende Woche in die Schweiz. Laut meines Vertrages ist die Schweiz nicht mehr Teil meiner EU-Option, die mir zuvor bei BASE im EU-Ausland (inkl. eben der Schweiz und Norwegen) meine Datenflat zusicherte. Dank der EU-Regulierung ist die Schweiz nun nicht mehr dabei. Neulich war ich in einem O2-Shop (kein Partnershop, sondern ein "echter" - darauf muss man achten!). Dort bes [...] 

Narcissistic? Not at all!

Y’all know it nomination time - until November 13, not even a full week left. In the IBM Champions Slack channel one post from our Champion wrangler Libby stroke me today which definitely encourages me to nominate myself - though I didn’t plan to do so: "Current Champions will need to submit a renomination form for themselves. Nominations from the community are GREAT but DO NOT [...] 

First aid on my iMac

What happened? Some weeks ago I encountered the 1TB HDD in my iMac died a slow death. First I couldn't access the data anymore and then the disk was mounted and unounted once in a while. This resulted in a very annoying click sound every few minutes and it drove me crazy. Now, as I got the right tools for the job, I replaced the broken HDD with a spare 500GB SSD. This is how it worked out. [...] 

Google Home Mini - my first take

Intention I own two Amazon Echos, one in the office and one in the living room, and I use them regularly during the day. Though the Echos do not always understand what I am saying I am quite happy with what they offer. I mostly control my smart home devices with it and use timers. Very rarely I use the personal assistant features like telling the news or adding something to my calendar. Especia [...]

On October 25 IBM announced some big news. To be short: IBM is investing in the Domino platform for the next years without even mentioning an „at least“ date for support and product development. They call it #Domino2025. They also announced that there will be a channel for all to submit proposals for the upcoming release and feature packs. By the way: there will be finally be [...] 

Bananen-Republik Deutschland, Teil 2 - O2Post in german language / Artikel in deutscher Sprache

Ich war jahrelang ein sehr zufriedener BASE Kunde. Ich hatte einen Tarif, der übersichtlich war. Ein Paket für X Euro, ein Paket dazu für Y Euro. Insgesamt ein Paket mit 5GB nationaler Datenflatrate plus EU-Option (inkl. Norwegen und Schweiz) für ebenfalls 5GB, d.h. gemeinsamer Nutzung des Gesamtpakets. Im Grunde musste ich mir keinen Kopf machen, wo ich gerade bin, die 5GB war [...]
