Building The Revolution: Soviet Art and Architecture 1915-1935 [Exhibition]

Some exhibitions cost a lot. In theory, Building The Revolution: Soviet Art and Architecture 1915-1935 cost me a tenner. In practice, it cost a lot more as I walked away with three heavy hardcover books...

For me, there are two major things I learnt at this exhibition:

Reviews

I review things occasionally - here's a handy index of them.

Tower Bridge at Sunrise

I went into London before sunrise, looking for good photos.

(Which sounds impressive, but it was December 29th, and sunrise was about 8am!)

Knowing that the sun rises behind Tower Bridge, I smelled an easy photo opportunity. But woe is me - I can't decide which one I like better!

Time to make some choices about vCardSplit

vCardSplit has now been in the wild unchanged for almost seven years.

During all that time, it has collected three bug reports.

  1. It doesn't handle Mac/UNIX file formats
  2. It doesn't handle unicode
  3. It requires a geeky user

It's time to tackle that list.

But that means making decisions. So I've decided to write up those decisions, in order to help me work them out and to keep development of the program somewhat transparent.

 

The Games Children Play...

I was browsing randomly at lunch today, and somehow ended up on the BBC Domesday Site.

So, I figured I'd have a look at what was happening in 1986 near where I live.

I soon found a link for "Adult Recreation", which turned out to be a lot less interesting than you'd think, so I've not linked to it.

Instead, I draw your attention to the marvel that is Children's Recreation.

The Shard Under Construction

The Shard is something I see almost every working day, as it's being built right next to a station on my commute.

The Shard Under Construction

This photo is atypical of most photos I've taken of it, or seen - it shows a cloud eclipsing the top of the building on an otherwise fine day.

Exchange 2010 from a Domino Administrator's viewpoint

A braindump of each day of the course is nice, but I'd like to tie it all up with a nice summary, so that I can move on and use this website for something more interesting than work...

From a Domino Administrator's point of view, Exchange 2010 is the best version of Exchange yet.

 
It has to be looked at from a viewpoint of "just mail", of course.

Exchange 2010 Course Reactions - Day 5 of 5

A smorgasbord of topics on the final day...

(Apologies for the delayed write-up - I had a busy social weekend.)

Journaling
We need an Enterprise CAL to journal individuals? Really?
Otherwise, it seems OK if basic - you simply get a copy sent to another mailbox as well. No hassle for the user at all...

Exchange 2010 Course Reactions - Day 4 of 5

A good day, in which we covered high availability, backup/restore and security.

Topics which have been a major part of my career, so I have more to say today. (Sorry!)

Exchange 2010 Course Reactions - Day 3 of 5

Day three of learning about Exchange 2010, from a Notes & older Exchange viewpoint.

Routing
The mail routing is fairly simple, which is good. An improvement over some (very old) previous versions...

Message tracking logs
Wait... Useful logs from Microsoft?
I was stunned.
Useful logs that are in a usable text format, rather than some odd binary format?
PRAISE THE DARK GODS! FOR THEY ARE SURELY REWARDING US!
