Over the past 12 months Red Pill Now has continue to explore new and exciting ways in which we can exploit the potential of Graph Databases.

Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux

2017-07-10T13:28:18+00:00

A few years ago, shortly after the release of Domino 9,  I wrote an instructional guide (along with some videos posted to YouTube) on how to install and configure IBM Domino on CentOS and posted it to dropbox.   The response was overwhelmingly positive, I had no idea so many people needed this type of

MWLUG Recap

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

The Event As always MWLUG has been an awesome event thanks to the amazing efforts of Richard Moy and his team. There were many familiar faces, but there were some new faces as the mid-west slowly expands further south and further west each year to arrive in the center of Texas. This was my first

The Lotus Position

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Over the years I have had the chance to attend a lot of LUGs around the world including Engage (BLUG), Inform (AUSLUG), and of course there is MWLUG (people call me MWLUG). These events have provided me with the chance to hear from leading Notes Developers and Domino Administrators. But rarely do I get the

Pete Janzen: Lotus Legend

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Many years ago I launched a web site called Lotus Legends that recognized the contributions made by many people inside and outside IBM to the Lotus Notes product. I retired the site after IBM announced its IBM Champions program. While both sought to provide recognition of the many contributions made by our community the two

Getting Your Hands On Graphs

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Next week I will be in Austin, TX at MWLUG 2016. Red Pill Now is a platinum sponsor again this year, and I am fortunate to have been accepted to present a two-hour workshop on the GraphNSF technology from the OpenNTF Domino API. I've been working on the GraphNSF implementation for over 3 years now.

Reading The IBM Tea Leaves

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Last week I read an interesting statement from an IBMer outlining a pending announcement in September of an updated policy on the Support Lifecycle for Notes/Domino. The standard IBM Support Lifecycle Policy commits IBM to supporting any version of its software for 3 years from its release date. With Notes 9.0.1 having been released in October 2013 we are

Engage: A New Direction?

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

The Journey The team from Red Pill Now had an "interesting" journey to Engage when the plane carrying three of us was involved in the bombings at Brussels Airport. I have shared a detailed account of the journey and the staggeringly bad customer service provided by Delta in my personal blog at peterpresnell.com. OGS In 2010
