Adobe after OS X Catalina..

It might be me, but Adobe really has designers, editors, in general: content creators in their grip. I’ve bought the CS6 suite a long time ago (cheap btw.), but now with the latest OS X release, Catalina, I cannot continue using my Photoshop or InDesign. InDesign btw. does most that Illustrator also does.

Now with the coming of Catalina, I cannot continue to use these. Upgrading this old software is outside of my budget (perhaps I should increase my tariff?), so either it is virtualisation time, or I need to go to an alternative.

I’ve been looking around for free alternatives and although most think that it is easy: there is Gimp, Krita, but they all do not meet my requirements.

  • .psd/.indd compatible
  • CMYK compatible (export for press)
  • Not online (need to be able to edit without internet connection)

MP-3mond, nu ook MP3-Mond

niet alleen een Massage Praktijk in Driemond, maar ook een Muziek Praktijk, dus hoe logisch is het om niet alleen mp-3mond te gebruiken, maar ook mp3-mond. MP3 is een bekend muziekformaat…

Muziek op schoot in Weesp. Geweldig!

USC Fysiotherapie

USC Fysiotherapie heeft contact gezocht om hun SEO te verbeteren. Bij de initiele analyse werd het snel duidelijk dat er meer aan de hand was.
In 2015 is hun CMS platvorm WordPress met bijbehorende implementator, gewijzigd naar een ander systeem: Webflow. Deze dienstverlener biedt alles in WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor aan, met een simpele interface voor editors.

Momenteel ben ik bezig met een analyse van hun website vanuit zowel technisch als contextueel perspectief.

iCal, Zimbra and CalDAVAccountRefreshQueueableOperation

So, found a solution (finally) for the annoying triangle in my OS X Calendar. It’s been there quite a while…

For anyone who has been working with Zimbra for a longer time (say, since version 4.1) you might have noticed that in it’s OS X counterparts Calendars and Reminders seem to integrate. This was obviously because of the CalDav protocol which resembled the webdav protocol too much. Opening a browser and going to your webdav URL also showed (reserved Names) next to your Calendar names, also the tasks names. However in the new OS X Reminders app, instead of showing the tasks name from webdav, it ALSO showed the Calendar names.
This means: Zimbra Calendar had a dual function (unintended): appointments and reminders. Of course, in later combinations of zimbra and OS X this was fixed. Some while ago – when iCloud was introduced – this annoying warning in my calendar list appeared, which stated “CalDAVAccountRefreshQueueableOperation” failed. Yet the calendars seem to work fine, as does the Reminders list.

I finally put 1 and 1 together with thanks to this article from 2014: the conclusion was: Zimbra & iCal have individual enable/disable checkmarks for tasks/reminders synchronisation to the cloud. But apparently there is a third one. I was looking in Internet Accounts, and should have been looking at the iCloud settings. And even there: in the iCloud settings from 10.12.5, reminders was unchecked?
But that setting was not the issue, no, you need to go INTO the iCloud Drive options, and there disable Reminders.

That did the trick; closing and opening iCal – everything still works but no more annoying error….

Akamai SAAS

SAAS means “software as a service”. Several CDN (Content Delivery Network) buyers are left alone after the initial sale and setup for their environment. Simple management operations like changes, additions and removals, must be requested via the CDN providers support package. In all cases this package is overly expensive if you take into account the duration for these simple tasks.

Ik-Jij-Zij starts with Akamai © CDN as a service to provide you the quick an inexpensive means for these management operations. Of course also the more complex situations can be handled from proces integration to project support.

You can read more about Akamai as a service here, and if you find this interesting in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Ciao, Werner.
