    I have been working on sharing our contacts in Google Apps and have imported them with in our admin account. I have enabled the contact sharing and I still can’t go into my email and see them. I have done some research and most of them say to make sure the contact sharing is enabled. That has been done since we created the account. I am going to have to contact Google and see if they can help me.

    Stay tuned….

    Tags: Excel,   

    I’m currently in the final stages of a larger project to develop a brand new Notes application and integrate it with an existing suite of lotus notes applications for a large global customer. We designed the application to work seamlessly with Excel, essentially using Excel as a user interface that most users are already familiar with. All of the data from Notes is opened into an Excel template and any changes are saved back into corresponding Notes documents automatically.

    One of the main challenges with this application was in ensuring that all of the values(labels, drop down selections, etc.) be handled dynamically based on whatever language they need to be in for a given user, but also to save all of the data such that we can pull all of this data together and generate reports accross all languages/countries later. It is imperative that everything “just works” no matter what language the user speaks. This is something that we as a company have a lot of experience in.

    I found this nice one-pager of the anatomy of good landing page => Click to follow the link

    Pretty interesting. I think it could apply to more than just a “landing” page.

    Apple is right on schedule. Version 2 of their product 1 year after the original.

    Only speculation as to what upgrades are going to be there, but almost every site thinks there will be a front facing camera.

    Ipad2 due in the next 100 days

    Last night was a bit frustrating I utilize… 

    Last night was a bit frustrating. I utilize LogMeIn to work from home on my iPad when traveling. It’s a great tool when working on the road. But for some reason, last night it kept “disconnecting” me.

    Obviously, as the cloud becomes more and more prevelant, we need to be sensative to the idea that the cloud may not be “working”. 99.99% uptime sounds great, but it still represents about an hour of “downtime” each year. But downtime is generally never linear.

    For example, last night, I could work for about 10 or 15 minutes at a time, then get disconnected. The downtime might have only been for 10 or so seconds at a time, but it was enough to disconnect my session.

    What does this mean? Obviously, I will need to plan on always having the next day’s presentations with me before leaving the office. Also, it makes me nervous when I rely on a service that isn’t available – so I need to plan that the service will not always be there.

    So with that, my plan is as follows:

    1) DropBox – I plan on having all of my presentation files sync’d there, even “works in progress”. Since the files are sync’d automatically, I should have them updated at least once a day. So even if the service is down, I should have a recent copy on my iPad or Laptop.

    2) Virtual Machine demo environment – I plan on making a small VM image for my Demo’s, and also sync’ing it via DropBox. Again, this should sync down and provide me with the most recent copy, available offline on my laptop if LogMeIn is down.

    With these two fixes in place, I feel it won’t matter if LogMeIn is down for a bit. I can still be fairly functional through out the day, until the “internet hiccup” or service issue is resolved.

    Note: This morning, LogMeIn is working just fine…
