I am working on a new site, so between work, this site, writting for Search400 (which I hope they change the name of soon) and family, I have also found little time to start building a new site that will in the end be a hub for all things POWER based. I have to bring the community together under...

I am excited about the new 8.5 client and other Lotus stuff that is out today. While 8.0.1 is nice, it still has some issues. The Linux and Mac Lotus Notes Clients are out as well so this should be one of those "steps in the right direction" things.

Oh me? I have never been a big supporter of Windows, that is clear. I have a long history of not liking Windows. I have also been very vocal with IBM telling them they can tell us how much they hate Windows and then force the user community they have to use it. It's just not right. Plus all of...
