Lotus Notes dumped in AMP cloud email move There are some IBM customers in Australia who continue to be happy with Notes — such as Australian youth charity BoysTown, which recently decided against Exchange or Gmail and instead upgraded its Notes installation – but in general there have been no large new Australian Notes customers reported for some time. I'd safely say the same trend applies in New Zealand. Tags: IBM, Lotus, Notes
Four Generations of the iPhone from Chris Pinnock on Vimeo. Some interesting timing tests for comparison – if you own a 3GS at the moment it’s going to be hard justifying an upgrade to a 4 for performance reasons. Tags: Apple, iPhone
Migrate Shares and Backups to New System – I’m posting this for reference purposes. I’m about to finalise a new WHS, and all I needed to do was read the post I’ve linked to in order to tell me that there’s no way I want to bother going through all that. Tags: Windows Home Server

Suppress Splash Screen in Visual Studio and SQL Server Management Studio Express – I wouldn’t say that splash screens are exactly the bane of my existence, but it’s always nice to save some time, so this one could be pretty useful (if I remember it every time I do a new install). It’s actually quite an interesting exercise in terms of perception that having no splash screen makes things feel quicker. Tags: Microsoft
EXCLUSIVE: I know what you ate last summer Risky.Biz understands multiple intruders have compromised Hell Pizza's 400mb database. While it does not contain any credit card information, it does contain in excess of 230,000 rows of customer entries. Tags: NZ

Enhance your input fields with jQuery – the demo looks good, but I always smell positioning nightmares with this sort of stuff. Tags: jQuery
Make your TFS installation even more complicated by installing Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum 1.0! (Hey nothing against TFS, it’s just not my bag – but if it’s yours then you might like this plugin.) Tags: Microsoft
Herman Miller Envelop Reclining Desk – looks shiny, and pretty comfortable. Not being able to hold heavier monitors is a deal breaker for me.

You don’t need to scale as big as facebook – really – it’s true, you don’t. Sometimes people need to be reminded of that.

World of Warcraft maker to end anonymous forum logins – I can’t see any way that this is going to go through, and just as well. The separation between gaming lives/identities is something a lot of people strive to protect for valid reasons. It’s unfortunate there are many others who keep them separate for more malicious reasons, but that’s life. Tags: Gaming, WoW

Windows Live Messenger arrives on iPhone – yay! I was looking for a good messenger client a few weeks back, so now that I see this I’m glad I gave up looking. The official version looks good – biggest benefit is that it supports sign ons from multiple locations, which is the biggest thing missing from most non official Messenger implementations.

Move your Windows XP installation into Windows 7 with VMware – possibly useful for anyone looking to move to Windows 7 and wanting to retain an image of their old Windows XP installation.
Visa introduces payclick... Should Paypal be worried? Paypal have actually been doing some good work on their service, for both developers, business owners and purchasers. I’d say more competition is good, but that Payclick is going to have to work pretty hard to get traction over Paypal.
