Andy Pedisich January 24 2015 02:46:10 PMLast year I took a very intense instructor led course in IBM Smartcloud Notes Hybrid Config and Onboard Data Transfer. As part of the course I built my own lab of "on premise" Domino servers, synchronized the Domino address book with the Cloud and learned how to move the data with the highest amount of safety and security.
Building out my own lab environment was a very effective learning tool. The hands-on approach really solidified my knowledge.
IBM has updated their official site listing all the certified partners, with Technotics now on the list!
Ok, we're near the bottom of the list, but we are still on the list. (Curse you, alphabetical order!)
Andy Pedisich January 12 2015 08:12:37 PMIn December my laptop was getting slow. It would take a pause in the middle of whatever else I might be doing. I started paying more attention to it, checking event log daily and trying to spot what the issue might be. Then, a blue screen happened.
The event log showed a corrupted NTFS partition. Not all the time. Then it showed a DVD error. I started shopping.
I settled on a Mac Book Pro and started off loading all my stuff, putting in VMWare Fusion, creating a Windows 8.1 VM along with a couple of other Vms ported over from the old system that had VPNs and other specialty stuff on them.
Today, my laptop made an awful sound. Not a beep, mind you. Just a kind of bad mechanical sound. Then it crashed. Then it recovered. Crashed again. I'm currently running Microsoft Safety Scanner in Safe Mode. Safety Scanner is a freebie from Microsoft that you should be acquainted with. It has found issues in the past that other AV products missed. It will likely run another couple of hours.
I don't really think it's software. Based on the noises, I think it's the fact that my Windows laptop was born October 3rd, 2009. If it doesn't have any disk issues, maybe I'll pick up a new DVD for it. For now, it's one of the usual suspects. Been through a lot. Plenty of trips through the TSA. Lots of hot days and cold auditoriums. And me along with it. If only it were just as easy to shop for a new body for me.
