last things I've been dealing with

it's been almost a month since the last post. In case you are wondering, my activity involves the following keywords:

middleware: WebSphere, Deployment Manager, cluster, Portal, WCM, Edge
tools:, Rational - TeamConcert, RSA, RAD, RSD, RMC, Component Designer, Portlet Factory.

What does this mean, beside a bunch of acronyms: it means I'm trying to get the picture and get my hands a little dirty into this new world. New for me, as I've been a Domino addicted for so long.

Now, I am trying to get the beast (WebSphere, Portal) to its knee, the same way I did with Domino. This means I am trying to cover it all, to understand it, to learn how it's working. And its not easy. Because all these means in fact J2EE, Java tools, Java development. From the administrative side, it means: AIX, Linux, lots of scripts that aren't running, lots of patches and fixes (IBM really outpaced MS here)

It's a long way and it's more difficult than Domino world, where you have everything right there, in Lotus Client, Domino Designer and a bit of Eclipse, if you really wanted to get fancy. If I said this before, I am saying it again :)

Next posts will cover a little bit of my lessons learned with above acronyms.

this clip showed in my inbox:

it got me thinking: how long from now on we'll be using nano-tech based computers ?
I say: 10 years from now on I'll get myself such device. Not phone, but computer.

This is due to how things are moving, in terms of technology becoming accessible.
We already have Mac Airbook and Lenovo x300. hmm ...
