Linux for ready for Small Business
Friday, 23 February 2007
At last I managed to get my wife to move from Windows 2K to Linux. Well, she did not volunteer, her computer motherboard 'bombed' and I took it as an opportunity to reinstall her system.

It's been nearly a week since the switch from Windows to Kubuntu. She was  totally lost for first three days, even frustrated with the way things work. I won't repeat some of the comments and curses I received in the past week.

Moving to Kubuntu
Saturday, 06 January 2007
Well finally my first post of 2007.

This year started with a complete reinstall of my network. I have switched all servers over to Ubuntu and my desktop over to Kubuntu. So far I am happy with the switch. My motivation for switching, after using SuSE for so many years, was two fold.

First, ever since Novell took hold of SuSE upgrades to successive versions had become increasingly worse. Then came the Novell Microsoft deal.

What's up with SuSE?
Tuesday, 10 October 2006

Darn, why do I get the impression that SuSE is going to the dogs?

I recently found some time to upgrade my main workstation from SuSE 10.0 to 10.1. You would think that not much could go wrong between these versions. Despite having made preparations and read the notes, SuSE upgrade from DVD just did whatever it wanted. After the upgrade I found that software had been removed, same with YaST repositories and whole bunch of things added for no obvious reason. The one that especially annoyed me is ZEN. Man, what a useless tool. Why do I want that on my desktop when YaST and YOU are so much better.

Enough Bad Service - Let's Complain Publically
Sunday, 27 August 2006

There is nothing like really getting pissed about something to motivate me into action. This morning my family and I planned to go watch a movie. The movie we want to watch was showing at the local Ster-Kinekor in Cresta shopping center. The evening before we checked the Ster-Kinekor website to determine the times at which the movie is screened. We found that the first show started at 11 AM.

This morning we arrived at the movie house 15 minutes before time so that we could purchase tickets and have enough time to buy refreshments. The movie house doors were open, all lights were on. Great they are open. As normal we checked the movies board to see if the movie we wanted was listed as described the night before on the Ster-Kinekor website. There it was in big bold red letters, “Pirates of the Caribean 2, 11:00”.

Here is were the problems start.

Podcasts for Customer Support
Saturday, 12 August 2006

Way to go! Podcasting seems to be all the rage. This revolutionary, home-grown technique by which everyday people are producing audio and video shows on just about every subject imaginable, so that others can download them for easy listening on portable audio players, seems to be everywhere. Now I wonder, can this new medium be applied in technical communications?

Whole Open Source Products
Monday, 17 July 2006

If open source projects are to mature they will need documentation that is at least equal to proprietary projects. The problem, at present, is that open source is still stuck in the 'enthusiasts mode'. Yes, it is trying hard to change, but I don't think the traction will take place until thinking turns from a strong source code focus to a more balanced look at developing 'whole products'.

Speaking on SOA
Monday, 09 August 2004
Open source, strategic sourcing and SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture), all three are the hottest topics of the time. Since writing the book 'SYSPRO on SOA' for SYSPRO, a leading vendor of enterprise resource planning software, I have had several speaking engagements. Probably the most important of these engagements has been speaking to SYSPRO customers, but the event that got the most coverage in the media is undoubtably the IDC/BMI-T "'SOA Forum".

African Science and Technology
Monday, 09 August 2004

When thinking about Africa, science and technology are not the first things that come to mind. Yet, there is some great innovation happening in Africa. So where is it?

Finding African science and technology projects is not as simple as it sounds. Not because the projects don't exist, but because there is no central database or directory for them. To find projects you have to search hundres of links and read a plethora of articles and for your effort, only a handful will come to light.

It's deja vu all over again
Monday, 09 August 2004

Yogi Berra, a former major league baseball player, manager and member of the "Baseball Hall of Fame" said some wonderfully colorful things. Pondering the South Africa property market brings to mind the Yogi quote, "It's deja vu all over again."

For any of you who where a part of the technology boom prior to the year 2000, I am sure you will agree that the parties were better before the end of the millennium. After the technology boom bubble bust the property market started to accend. Judging by last years histeria, I guess the bulls left the technology sector where everything is virtual and decided to try something more tangible. Thankfully, it now seems that a sense of reality is starting to take a hold of the property market, but the bulls don't want the property party to end.
