Coradiant TrueSight

Several of us saw a demo of Coradiant Truesight yesterday (first mentioned in the BbWorld Monitoring post). Most of the demo, I spent trying to figure out the name Jeff Goldblum as one of team giving the demo had the voice and mannerisms of the actor’s characters. Had he mentioned a butterfly, then I definitely… Continue reading Coradiant TrueSight

VM(Night)Mare

So, I need to install software on a couple servers which don’t exist. They are virtual: VMWare ESX. I can see and login to the web site. However, its frustrating to consistently get a working console. I get a partial page with “Error on page.” Going to the error reveals: Browser#ResponseReceived(): invalid content type text/html… Continue reading VM(Night)Mare

Joke: Security Via JavaScript

So, you are a teaching an online class. Students cheating naturally is a concern. How does one prevent them from stealing answers? Code in the online class system? Unfortunately, the makers of the learning management systems lag behind the creativity of cheaters. Plus, they can only control their systems.

All Your Cache Are Belong to Us

Interesting incident with Blackboard Vista last night. The user interface for the server “lost” the default icon sets for the organizer pages. Other icons were not affected so changing to another icon set did not help. A legendary Blackboard support guy happened to take our call. I understand why so many other Bb clients like… Continue reading All Your Cache Are Belong to Us

Open Letter to Netscape 7.2 Developers

Hi guys, Um, English typically is read left-to-right and not right-to-left. So when I type in the address box, I’d really appreciate the flow of my typing to work in that direction as well. As a result, I would get “u.view.usg.edu” and not “ude.gsu.weiv.u”. Killing the process and starting a new one did resolve the… Continue reading Open Letter to Netscape 7.2 Developers

Ready to Switch?

I was disappointed the only IE competitor mentioned was Firefox. Opera, Safari, and Netscape are well known enough that it would behoove a more balanced view to mention them as well. My only use of IE lately is replicating a user problem I can’t replicate in Firefox and the very, very infrequent case a web… Continue reading Ready to Switch?

Look for a Patent Wiki in 2007

Patent review goes Wiki – August 21, 2006: That’s the basic concept behind a pilot program sponsored by IBM and other companies [including HP and Microsoft], which the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office appears poised to green-light. The project would apply an advisory version of the wiki approach to the patent-approval process. The issue is… Continue reading Look for a Patent Wiki in 2007
