Thanks Bruce!

Bruce Elgort has stepped down as chairman of OpenNTF

I have known Bruce for many years. I could go on about how I met him and how we became close, but that not something I'm willing to share. He is a good and kindly man, he is a caring an loving individual, and he is a friend.

Bruce has worked his ass off over the years as a major contributor to our little yellow community. He has been a huge disruptive change agent and has helped shaped the way I look at the world.

For all you have done Bruce, and for all you continue to do, I want to say thank you.

Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux

QuickImage Category IBM Domino CentOS Linux Admin Articles Technical Show-n-Tell Thursday

I realize it is been a while since I posted, I'm hoping this blast of content will make up for my absence.

Since the official release of IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition a few weeks ago, I have been "chomping at the bit" wanting to release a set of instructions / videos on how to install it on a Linux machine.

During the beta program I had the opportunity to "play" with it quite a bit, and let me tell you this release is exceptionally good. It is also by far the easiest and most hassle-free version I have ever installed on a Linux machine -but there are still a few gotchas and watch-outs to be wary of.

I have written an instructional document entitled Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux and posted it to dropbox. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. The document is focused on 64 bit Linux, but calls out differences from 32 bit installations where necessary. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 6, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 6 and SUSE 11.

I have also cut a series of 9 videos wherein I walk through the instructions step-by step and demonstrate how easy it really is to perform the installation. They are available on my YouTube channel, although I'm hoping I can talk David Leedy into including them on Notes In 9.

Hope this helps!

Disk Inventory X

Category Technical Tools Reviews Mac

Ok, here is a real quick review

I have been using Disk Inventory X for about 6 months now, and I couldn't imagine not having it in my tool kit.

If you are a Mac user and do anything more complicated or technical than surf facebook, then you should go get this tool.

I don't always recommend a product, but when I do you should pay attention

Hope this helps!

Returning to the Real World

Category Lotusphere Life  Presonal

I've been pretty heads down over the last few months leading up to Lotusphere IBM Connect 2013. Nothing to apologize for, I've just been focused on other things.

I will leave it to others to provide detailed post-conference analysis. Let me just say that it was, through no fault of IBM, one of the worst weeks of my life. It was also one of the better weeks of my life. We lost a friend, but also made some new ones. I drew much closer to many existing friends as well.

Gents (and Ladies), I will not embarrass you by calling you out by name. You know who you are. I do want to say though that I really needed you this week, and you all came through in spades. I love all of you, thank you for your friendship and support. If you need me to talk to or cry with or scream at the moon, all you have to do is call.

Peace,

Birth of the Marine Corps

QuickImage Category History

JOURNAL OF THE CONTINENTIAL CONGRESS

(Philadelphia) Friday, November 10, 1775

Resolved, That two Battalions of marines be raised, consisting of one Colonel, two Lieutenant Colonels, two Majors, and other officers as usual in other regiments; and that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that particular care be taken, that no persons be appointed to office, or enlisted into said Battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea when required; that they be enlisted and commissioned to serve for and during the present war between Great Britain and the colonies, unless dismissed by order of Congress: that they be distinguished by the names of the first and second battalions of American Marines, and that they be considered as part of the number which the continental Army before Boston is ordered to consist of.

Ordered, That a copy of the above be transmitted to the General.

"One, two, three, four......I LOVE the Marine Corps!"
-Drill Instructor Corporal Petrovitch (on the Parade Deck at MCRD San Diego in July, 1982)

On 21 October 1921, Major Edwin McClellan, Officer-in-Charge, Historical Section, Headquarters Marine Corps, sent a memorandum to Major General Commandant John A. Lejeune, suggesting that the original birthday on 10 November 1775 be declared a Marine Corps holiday to be celebrated throughout the Corps. McClellan further suggested that a dinner be held in Washington to commemorate the event. Guests would include prominent men from the Marine Corps, Army, and Navy, and descendants of the Revolution. Accordingly, on 1 November 1921, General Lejeune issued Marine Corps Order No. 47, Series 1921. The order summarized the history, mission, and tradition of the Corps, and directed that it be read to every command on 10 November each subsequent year in honor of the birthday of the Marine Corps. This order has been duly carried out.
