Re: Great product... if you're a Notes administrator that is

Totally agree with your comments about Lotus Notes.

I was forced to use this unbelievable dinosaur not too long ago, and frankly couldn't believe it was ever sold as a product. In short, it's a parody of itself.

All you have to do is google "Lotus Notes Sucks" to see what I mean.

The arrogance

"...what they thought would be an impossible goal..."

It never ceases to amaze me how arrogant scientists become. Simply because they are the expert in THEIR field, they automatically assume they're expert in every field.

Yeah, sure it is

Facebook worth $100B. What a joke. Users are de-registering in droves as they finally understand how stupidly worthless it is to let your universe of friends and acquaintances know you are using the toilet, or about to eat a ham sandwich.

Face it, Pr0n is the only money maker in the inter-tubes, the rest hang off its revenues.

Can't you security weenies come up with a better term than 0-day. Also, why are security flaws in Windows newsworthy. This is a standard feature of Windows.

New sensitive space gloves: NASA spends wad freely

"It is remarkable that two designers working on their own could create gloves that meet the requirements for spaceflight - a task that normally requires a large team of experts"

What's truly remarkable is how naive expert NASA engineer Kate Mitchell is with regards to the efficiency of individuals compared to "a large team of experts".

Perhaps a review of her High School science book would refresh her memory that the truly great discoveries and inventions were almost all made by individuals.
