I’m a great fan of @gapingvoid, and if you haven’t done it yet, I’d recommend you read his books.
Most of the times, his cartoons are hitting so right on that you’d want to believe they’ve been made specially for you. Like this one:
It looks like Oracle has put another dent in Sun blogging platform. First, when they moved blogs.sun.com content to Oracle’s platform, they got rid of my blog design, breaking some of the layout, but more importantly removing the Creative Common license notice that I had explicitly used.
A few days ago, someone asked me if Oracle thought that my 6 years of blogging at Sun were not worth the storage, as he hit a 404 while trying to access my blog at blogs.sun.com/Ludo/. I checked, and it appears Oracle has made some changes and the redirection is broken. The blog and posts are still on Oracle platform, and you may search for them.
But when I moved out of Oracle, I had archived and restored all of my posts here at ludpoitou.wordpress.com. You can search through it, or use the Calendar to go back in time and retrieve those old posts (some of which still have value for anyone who has some interest in LDAP).
Time to update the old bookmarks ?!
Last week, I’ve spent 3 days in meetings in a remote location in UK. We had our product management get together event, reviewing our product strategy and plans. These meetings have been long, intense, lively and highly productive.
One of the reason for being productive, and also a major reason for me to have seemed to disappear from the surface of the earth, was that we were in a location with almost no network connectivity. No Internet, no wifi, and barely enough telephone bandwidth to check email status for the few lucky to have roaming option. Even mobile phone connectivity was random depending on the room in which we were.
But the place was great, we had plenty of space, some distractions  , some of which we kept until the very end of the meetings  and we enjoyed the master cooking of our VP .
Of couse it did help that there was no way we could have escaped :
The outcome of the meetings is a huge task list, which does include more blogging. And it’s easier with a network access !
I’m sure most of you have seen this already… I’m posting it here for posterity !
