Rmax, I can deduce that your employer has at one stage done a lot of business with IBM, because Notes is very rarely to be found except where it was part of "making IBM happy".At PC Magazine we had Notes, it was hated by everyone Windows nerds, OS/2 geeks, Mac Fanbois, software types, hardware people, ad sales, admin, people who wanted to run every aspect of their lives (including their rare sex episodes) through their phones, HR and even the cartoonist. To quote a lawyer doing major work for IBM it's a "fucking pile of shit", when I was at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, random people in elevators would exchange war stories of the fuckwittedness of Notes. It is said that eskimos have 24 words for snow, that may or may not be true, I do know there are dozens of icons for "wait interminably whilst I sort my cocksucking data out" in Notes.At PC Mag we printed a cartoon of two jungle explorers whose camp was wrecked by a giant gorilla, they were then chased up a tree and the gorilla started destroying their camp. The gorilla then picks up a laptop with Notes on it, so one of the explorers says "Oh God, he's got Notes, were really in trouble now..."One day, tomorrow or in ten years time, I expect to get an urgent email dated 2005 from a Notes user at a big bank saying "Dominic, you've got to let the world know, there is a big crash coming, Lehmans will blow up, the global economy will crash and all we have to do is simply cv;kjsdf09uretr-318r23049=40294-90d=sa0D=-=sd-0sD=-das=d-0sd=-0S=a-dsa=d-0S=S-ADAS=D-s=d-SAD=-s0dsad8D-09s8d-0S9D8-09d7-"Because Notes can cause multi-year backlogs in email and corrupts them out of spite.
