I’d been beholden to it as a tool for a little too long, and it’s become somewhat heavyweight, and was also exposing andrewferrier.com to a lot of spam. By removing a database backend and the ability to add comments, this should go. I wanted to give a refreshed look and feel. I’ve redesigned everything from scratch using Bootstrap.

  • email2pdf - "Automatic" Conversion of Emails to PDFs

I already have some good workflows set up with my network scanner to scan documents to PDF, which get automatically transferred to the desktop of my Mac for myself to file using rsync. However, I also get a lot of emails which I’d like to capture in PDF format. Currently, for each one, I have to go into my email program, and ‘print them out’ using a PDF printer. It’s not too difficult, but it can still be a hassle when there are several to process. What I’ve done, therefore,…

  • Fixing initrd to Regain Ubuntu Encrypted Root Prompt on Boot

    24 Sep 2012 | 2:02 pm
    Recently, I upgraded my Ubuntu 12.04 server, which uses an encrypted root directory (with LVM and LUKS). Unfortunately, somewhere along the way the upgrade broke the boot process - next time I booted, it hung for 5 seconds, then timed out and dropped to a BusyBox prompt. I quickly found a workaround which allowed me to manually intervene and continue the boot each time: cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 root exit Of course, however, I didn’t want to intervene on every boot, especially since this is normally a headless server. To fix it longterm, I eventually found this link, which hinted at the…
  • Correcting iPhone photo filenames

    Sometimes, when uploading photos from my iPhone’s camera roll (for example, when using Dropbox), the photo filename format ends up looking like this: Photo 16-03-2012 21 21 10.jpg This isn’t very nice. Much better to have something in ISO-8601 format, which sorts nicely in file listings, and so on. So I wrote a quick bash script to search for all the files in the current directory (and subdirectories), and rename them to this style: Photo-2012-03-16-21-21-10.jpg You can find it on github. Please note that the script renames files immediately, with no confirmation. It depends on Perl’s…

    I first met Stefan Reidy, CEO and founder, of arviem several years ago when he was in NY City to speak with Forbes magazine for an article on his ideas for tracking freight containers using a variety of wireless technologies. During the interview Reidy was incredibly enthusiastic about what this could mean for the future of supply chains. In fact, he liked the idea so much that he started up
  • Which Warehouse Locations Are Lean and Lucrative?

    2 Oct 2014 | 9:08 am
    Of all the fearful factors that business owners and logistics managers have to deal with, one of the things they dread the most is idle inventory. As if supply chains aren’t boring enough as it is (or so people think!), the term idle inventory just exudes negativity. No company, whether mom and pop sized or international corporation sized, is ever content with anything business-related

  • XPages XML Document DataSource - Take 2

    Stephan H Wissel
    5 Mar 2015 | 12:53 am
    For a recent project I revisited the idea of storing XML documents as MIME entries in Notes - while preserving some of the fields for use in views and the Notes client. Jesse suggested I should have a look at annotations. Turns out, it is easier that it sound. To create an annotation that works at runtime, I need a one liner only: @Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME) public @interface ItemPathMappings { String[] value(); } To further improve usefulness, I created a "BaseConfiguration" my classes will inherit from, that contains the common properties I want all my classes (and documents) to…

    2 Mar 2015 | 8:14 am
    Leaving the cosy world of Domino Designer behind, venturing into IBM Bluemix, Java and Cloudant, I'm challenged with a new set of task to master. Spoiled by Notes where Ctrl+O gives you instant access to any application, regardless of being stored locally or on a server I struggled a little with my usual practise of develop local, deploy (Bluemix) global The task at hand is to develop a Java Liberty based application, that uses CouchDB/Cloudant as its NoSQL data store.

  • Double-O Bike Light Review

    Stephan H Wissel
    10 Jan 2015 | 5:27 am
    I backed the Double-O bike light Kickstarter project and use them for a while now. This is my verdict: TL:TR Highly functional light with clever features, some teething problems If you like to ride through the unlit woods at night, Double-O isn't for you, but that would. It is a commuter light with a rather clever design. The Good It is huge. With the LED arranged in a circle you get a big patch of light, a much bigger surface than the bike lights you commonly find in the market. That alone improves visibility quite a bit. Two of the 3 light modes are what you would expect: blinking and…
  • Now that the client is gone - what to do with all that notes:// links?

    Stephan H Wissel
    9 Jan 2015 | 7:06 am
    In your mind you drank the cool-aid and got onto IBM Verse or went to the dark side. You web enabled all of your applications (smartly) and you are ready to turn off the Notes clients. But then you realize: there are notes:// URLs (or their file equivalents ndl files) and doclinks spread all over your organisation: in eMails, in office documents, in applications in personal information vaults. So you wake up and go back to the drawing board. What is the issue at hand? Lotus Notes was one of the first applications (as I recall, the first commercial) that made large scale use of Hyperlinks…

    The Extension Library features a Dojo Accordion control. In the sample application the panels and their content are created static using xe:basicContainerNode and xe:basicLeafNode. A customer asked: "Can I populate the accordion using view entries?" Working my way backwards I first designed the format for the SSJS I need for the menu and then how to generate this format from an categorized view. The format that suited this need looks like this: [ { name : "Level 1"; items : ["red 1":"blue 1":"green 1"]}, { name : "Level 2"; items : ["red 2":"blue 2"]}, { name : "Level 3";…

    Much as was once the case with electrification, digitization is now transforming industry after industry.  In media and communications, for example, everything seems to be changing at once, from the way content is produced and delivered, to the sources of revenue and profits.  In financial services, money and payment ecosystems are becoming increasingly digital now that just about everyone in the world can afford a personal mobile device.  Smart, connected products are reshaping industry boundaries and forcing companies to ask themselves a fundamental question: What business…

    IWB
    24 Mar 2015 | 1:43 am
    I recently read a very interesting NY Times column, The Reality of Quantum Weirdness, by UC Berkeley professor Edward Frenkel.  In the column, professor Frenkel discusses a very deep and important question:  Is there such a thing as a true reality, or “is our belief in a definite, objective, observer-independent reality an illusion?”  The article is about the strange world of quantum mechanics, a world that’s very different from our everyday life experiences.  But part of my fascination with the subject is that I often ask myself similar questions when thinking…

    The Industrial Revolution led to the creation of many large and mid-size companies in which people worked together to produce goods and/or deliver services.  Having a good job meant working for one such company.  These workers, many of them unionized, enjoyed relatively secure, stable jobs and a number of company benefits, including health care insurance, vacations and retirement pensions.  This corporate capitalism era, - characterized by hierarchically organized institutions, - reached its height in the US in the period following World War 2, when the country craved a…

Not surprisingly, considerable speculation surrounds this question.  At one end we find books and articles exploring AI’s impact on jobs and the economy.  Will AI turn out like other major innovations, e.g., steam power,…

    It’s no secret that valuable mentoring relationships can have a formative impact on one’s career, vision of success, and performance within a company. Mentors are critical to networks, huge reservoirs of resources, and a perfect complement to the ambitious. For these reasons and more, companies are investing in formal and informal mentoring programs, typically pairing up knowledgeable and experienced practitioners with younger employees who are eager to learn.

  • Simple User Exits to manipulate data in the Map Editor

    Pat Frey
    31 Mar 2015 | 9:37 am
    Sometimes when you need to manipulate the data, it seems like it will take quite a few lines of extended rules to get your desired results. A classic example is converting your data to all uppercase.  It can definitely be done with extended rules, looping thru each character. However, you can simplify it to just 3 lines of rules if you use an user exit. I know user exits are scary, especially since support doesn't support them, but if you're just needing to manipulate data, and there's already a java function that does it, it's really quite simple.  You do not need…
