then this is the place to let it be known. I've had to support this pile of shit known as Lotus Notes for the past 6 years for a bank out in New York.
End users are pissed.....tech support is pissed.....the only people who seem to love Notes are the weirdo's who have to code this crap and the people that work for IBM.
Anytime you bring up the competition, Microsoft, the Lotus Notes kool-aid developers at work like to talk about "microsoft has viruses...blah blah blah".
I always ask if they realize that it is 2007 and it would be nice if my out of office agent would turn on everytime (half the time it gets stuck or doesn't turn on at all), if NTASKLDR would refrain from using up 99% of my CPU, and if someone other then Ray Charles can improve the GUI.
The talk about Lotus Hannover and all the great things it is going to bring......we are apparently on the "beta" program and I installed Notes 8 and the only thing that changed were the icons on the left hand shortcut bar......why didn't the actual GUI change?
because my mail file template, person document, blah blah blah hadn't been updated on the server. You literally have to update all this shit on the backside to get it to work. What ever happened to installing a new version of software and the changes happen automatically and not having to contact your damn domino admin (who is clueless as it is) to update your docs on the server.
Stay tuned.....i'll be providing comical error screenshots (for those familiar with "object variable not set") and posting my dealings with end-users......this should be interesting.
