Do you care about Domino performance in a way you can do something with? Say so on ideaJam

By Andrew Pollack on 09/08/2008 at 08:53 PM EDT

Mac has asked that if we're planning to submit a session in the BP track that we post the idea up in IdeaJam to see what kind of support its got. I want to do a Performance session in the BP track this year. I usually do security, admin, mail routing, and linux -- and I'll probably post those as well -- but this year I want to do "Performance" in a way that makes sense in the real world.

You see, real world Domino performance issues aren't all about the simple stuff like memory and number of disks. There's vicious cycle of critical choices you make in combination that makes the difference. It's the application design that exacerbates the hardware choices and operating system configuration. I've had clients tell me they're seeing up a 1/4 the servers needed to support the same users and applications after taking a handful of recommendations in combination.

I want to do a session that talks about how to spot the combination of small, inexpensive changes you can make to really see dramatic improvements. If you think you'd want to go to a session like that, "vote yes" on the idea linked below.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

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 ......
