I’ve been using Evernote for a few years now and have enjoyed it’s feature set and the ability to plan and document a complex project (namely home/shop projects) with shopping lists, ideas, etc. But recently every time I attempt to use Evernote to create a quick note or maybe just jot something down, I’m presented with a request to upgrade to a pay plan, or to update or just general advertising. I can no longer just open it and create a note.
Merry Christmas!! I hope everyone is having a great holiday. I thought now might be a good time to look back over the year and review some of the technology I’ve dealt with.
Surface Pro 4: Last year I got a Surface Pro 4 tablet. I started the process of switching to it instead of my aging MacBook Pro. While I REALLY like the hardware and how everything works there were just a few issues which got on my nerves so bad I couldn’t ever completely make the switch.
Here's today's useful error message encountered in Domino Designer:
Well, Friday morning I retired the original keithstric.com server (replace server in this article with glorified PC). It was built in late 2001 with a Pentium processor (I think) or AMD Equivalent and 256MB RAM running SuSE Linux (back then it was probably Red Hat, but I changed to SuSE once Red Hat went proprietary). This server was the original home for keithstric.com and was only turned off for a short while after I got a new server with dual processors in which one of the processor fans promptly failed a few months later,
I would like to announce that I have officially accepted a postion as “Software Engineer” (Xprentice) with the geniuses over at Group Business Software. While it pains me to leave my current employer (Tek-Solutions, Inc.) and doing so was probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, the opportunity presented by Group is a great one and I’m honored to be able to be a part it.
With the launch of the iPad yesterday I’ve read a little bit on it, not a whole lot as it really doesn’t interest me that much. However, at my previous employer I did a lot of work on disaster response applications. These applications were designed to run locally out in the field and when an internet connection was available (usually via a tether to their blackberry if signal was available) to then replicate to the company servers.
OK I’m currently sitting in the Orlando International airport waiting on my flight back home. But while riding the bus to the airport I was thinking about Disney. They really got it together on several fronts.
- Moving people from point A to point B. Once you’re in the Disney system, they’ll get you where you need/want to go in a fairly reasonable amount of time and with good service too
- Making Money.
I came across Last.fm last week or so. It allows you to play music for free. There are apps for iPhone and Android so you can listen via those devices also. But you define your favorite artists across different genres and Last.fm will provide recommendations of music you might like. For example, if you make one of your preferred artists say Trace Adkins, there is a link called “Listen to Trace Adkins Radio”
