HCL Nomad Web - in a container
Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 6:27 PM UTC
Daniel Nashed did it again: he simplified a process to get faster results. This time: getting started with HCL Nomad Web and SafeLinx.
HCL Nomad Web needs SafeLinx as Proxy and additional files which are the WAS part of the product which will run in your browser. Installing and especially configuring a SafeLinx server may be cumbersome and at least I failed several times. With SafeLinx now [...]
Finally going ARM
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 9:19 PM UTC
I thought about it for quite a while, now I did it and bought a MacBook Pro 14" mit M1 Pro SOC. It's the 10/16 Core model with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD (3-5GB/s read/write speed!). There were many reviews about this processors and the machines Apple created on top of it - and I can only chime in that this is a game changer. It's so fast and power efficient. Sorry, Intel - you are dead, at [...]

HCL Updates from Engage
Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 8:07 PM UTC
Though not physically present, I captured some news from Engage which takes places these days, thanks to my fellow peeps who post infos on Twitter.
My personal highlights from the OGS and other sessions during the day are:
Domino product codes now follow geographical naming standards like Apple does for decades, so future versions of Domino are named after famous rivers. Danube, Th [...]
Same, same - but different
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 at 8:00 AM UTC
April 1, 2015 marked my beginning at We4IT, April 1, 2022 the end. Or better: a change - after 7 years.
We4IT started two subsidiaries based on the former teams for development and managed services. It's not about a particular product or platform but of what we are really doing. I am part of the managed services team for about a year now, so we now built Nintera from it. Our focus is [...]
Goodbye, Philips Hue Homekit Integration
Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 8:39 PM UTC
I am running Philips Hue and Homekit for years now. I always had trouble with this combo. Philips Hue has native Homekit support. This basically means that every device (Philips Hue stuff only) is automatically exposed to Apple's Homekit ecosystem and appears in the Home app. This is true for lights, sensors and switches (basically all that Homekit is able to use properly).
Quick Tip: Enabling STARTTLS for SMTP inbound
Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 9:09 PM UTC
Just a quick note to myself for whenever I stumble upon this again. Today I made the final touches on a new Domino server. The last bit was configuring the SMTP inbound ability using Microsoft M365 custom connector. This one is basically routing certain addresses to the Domino server which will handle those mails itself.
Beside the usual configuration of SMTP, an SMTP website setting and all th [...]
HCL Domino 12.0.1 FP1 is out - and fixes a recent problem
Thursday, April 7, 2022 at 7:59 PM UTC
HCL released FP1 for Domino and Notes 12.0.1 today. I wondered if 12.0.1FP1 will contain the code of 11.0.1FP5 that caused a big problem under certain conditions.
Fortunately it doesn't.
In parallel I received a test fix for my issue in 11.0.1FP5 from HCL support which I reviewed but did not test it until now. The Code contains similar co [...]
Before you update to FP5 of 11.0.1
Monday, March 28, 2022 at 2:29 PM UTC
A customer encountered a problem with our platform Aveedo after upgrading their server to the latest FP5. XPages that contain a view or folder could not be opened anymore and threw an exception:
java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: Array index out of range: 1
The Mac mini - the underdog
Monday, March 21, 2022 at 1:59 AM UTC
While everyone in the western hemisphere is testing the new Mac Studio, I started my Mac mini journey some weeks ago. I always thought that this form factor is the most appealing one in the Mac ecosystem. I had iMacs and MacBooks for quite a while now but I always found that using external displays on those machines are nice but quite off the grid - they both have great internal displays.
