Lotusphere 2007 - Day 3
6 am: Ouch... I woke up with a headache this morning. Breakfast sucked. Bird's food again. Maybe I'm just getting spoiled....
8:30 am: My first session today "IBM Lotus Domino Database Direction". Sean asked me about DB2 before I left, I'm hoping to get some answers here. NSF lives on. A lot of improvements geared toward optimization of the server. Uptime goal is 99.999%, ability to sustain 6,000+ concurrent users with acceptable response time. Resource use reduction: I/O, space, CPU. Streaming Cluster Replication will result in 50% CPU savings, and 2x replication speed, as well as 25% I/O reduction. New ODS, not mandatory on upgrade, enhanced user activities log (shows "delete", not just read/write). Domino/DB2 unification.
10 am: Next session "Activity Centric Computed". Activities are new thing in Notes 8. This is big. I love it. They are a congregation of e-mail messages, Web links, documents (files), ToDo items, etc. Activities can be linked to another related activities, and can be shared with other users. Out of the box extensions for Web browsers, MS Office and Notes 8.
11:15 am: "Deploying Lotus Notes 8 Clients". SmartUpgrade still there. Some improvements. Tylenol is not working, my head is exploding, my brain is shutting down on me. Time for lunch.
1:30 pm: "What's new in the Domino Web Server?". I missed the introduction. They are talking about better control of the HTML rendering. I can't stay focused. My brain is fried. Pain, lots of it. I have to leave. Screw the Web server. I need to get some slip. I'm dying. Shuttle to the hotel. Headache. Bed. Slept for 2 hours. I set the alarm to 5 pm hoping to go to the RIM reception and Canada Night. Headache still there. Screw Tylenol, time for heavy guns. Screw RIM Reception and Canada Night. I can't drink now. I would be miserable. That's my luck. Oh well, let's just relax at the hotel. I went for a walk, ate dinner at the hotel diner. It worked. Headache is finally gone.
That was not a productive day . Hopefuly tomorrow will be a better day.
