Too Much Availability; Follow-Up from Lotusphere; Plans for the next few months

By Andrew Pollack on 01/28/2008 at 08:34 AM EST

A good Lotusphere this year. Despite some minor disappointments with the priority on announcements this was a great Lotusphere. The message, for the first time in many years, is all about the core products and their various accessories -- which is how I still think of Sametime, Quick'r, et. al. I realize that bothers some, but I can only call it like I see it.

Best of all this year, as in almost every year, was time spent with good friends. There's always a bit of a let down after Lotusphere for me. It caps an insanely busy season that includes the kids off school for weeks at a time, preparation for presentations, C.U.L.T. shirts, and travel plans -- not to mention the holidays.

Looking forward, one of my top priorities is getting updates out for NCT Search, NCT Compliance Search, and NCT Simple Sign-on. Look for these in the weeks to come.

That brings me to my last topic. I took almost half of last year off to finish getting Second Signal up and running, but that's left me pretty flat for the year of 2007 and with way more open schedule for the beginning of 2008 than I'd like to have. If you have an application you want to perform better, an infrastructure you want reviewed, or a complex application problem where you need something to talk to something else -- now's a great time to ask because I'm much more amenable to scheduling and travel than usual.

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
