Lotusphere Online was much easier. That threw only "Error 500".


Hm, in US TV I've seen a couple of spots with a small print "dramatization" printed in a corner of the screen when things were exaggerated to make the point. I think this one would certainly deserve this as well... ;-)

Why? If IBM is as good as they tell me all the time, they should be able to resolve "Network Difficulties" in a matter of a few hours, shouldn't they?

Oooops, this was of course supposed to go in the previous entry's comments... Sorry 'bout this...
(Maybe it's still to early to do serious work due to jet lag...)

Voler, I think IBM should not have such problems in any way. I think they are big enough for having good admins and they produce software. They should never have such failures online...
But anyway I think a lot can be done much better with Domino instead of Websphere ...

IBM can't run any of their general websites that well though: I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen internal server errors, broken links, and time-out pages over the last few years.
