More people are working at home. Businesses are struggling to figure out new ways to communicate internally, with partners, and their client/consumer audience.

The Nebula R&D blog just got a complete overhaul. It’s now much faster, much more visually appealing, and mobile-friendly. I’m also refocusing toward D3-specific tips.
Long-time colleague Ian McGowan asked the following in Slack today: “Tony, what is the non-MV work you’re doing? How did that transition go? What’s the story? I’m asking for, uh, […]
I’m often called to remedy one-off issues in D3 environments, and to look at systems for family/friends when things start running slow. Most home/business environments share these common traits: Huge […]
This is for people who administer Google Groups in the MV community and elsewhere. I’ve been noticing over the last few months that emails I get from forums have two […]

On a somber note, we all know what a living will is, or a last will for distributing our worldly goods, but how many people have a will that helps […]
I need to set this up briefly. I don’t just hang around in MV forums, I hang around in a lot of different forums. My latest venture was to the […]
In my last blog entry I mentioned a couple tools I use for tracking time. Today a forum posting mentioned the difficulty of doing accurate project estimates. I’ve made mistakes […]
I haven’t written many blog entries lately. I keep saving up material that I think would be interesting but somehow I never get to publishing it. Right now I’m looking […]
On another blog I read which focuses on Excel, the author is wondering whether he should keep the Archives sidebar (to the right) with the list of links by Month/Year. […]

My first book, Using DesignBais, will be available soon. Here’s the current status. Comments and suggestions welcome.
Next week InterSystems will be hosting their annual Developer Conference (DevCon) in Orlando, Florida. I will be attending this event and I thought I’d share some reasons why.
