State of affairs 

It’s been a while since I last posted anything significant on this blog. Just to show I’m alive I try to summarize what’s going on around me. 

First of all I started coauthoring the articles of the Atoll Group, which meant most of the ideas I was going to share here went there. 

I also got the heat turned up in my day job. I’m currently assigned to a large scale business transformation program.  I first lead the integration stream, than got the technical management role for the data transformation team in the migration stream. This has quite a few stories to go with, but none I could share publicly. One of the main reasons that prevented me from writing is the 65km commute  twice a day, that sucks the joy of life from me. (don’t tell anyone, but I type and drive now) 

To make matters worse I also started to attend an MBA course, which has been a long time dream of mine. Since I am always pressed for time, I chose to do it in an expedited way, that only takes a year of my weekends. I’m now attending 8 classes at the university every Saturday, writing papers for submission and working on my thesis in my spare time. 

Both the program in  my day job and my MBA are due to complete at the end of the year, so I will be back with posts once I’m done there. 

SAMU case study at Telekom featured on the monthly AEA event

In accordance with the long existing friendship between the Association of Enterprise Architects and the Atoll Group, Atoll was invited to present on the monthly gathering of the Hungarian chapter of the AEA.

Atoll was the first ever presenter on these monthly occasions of the Association and is following the life of the chapter ever since. This time Atoll has asked one of their major local client to share their experience with the SAMU enterprise architecture repository.

Appearing on the stage was no other than Tamás Nacsák, the Chief Enterprise Architect at Telekom Hungary, and Gábor Vincellér, the development manager of the SAMU product.

Mindweb is back up again

After a few weeks of downtime, I finally got myself together to put the site up again. It is still lacking in some respects due to the incompatibility of the new and previous Angular versions, but most functions are operational again.

Please feel free to experiment with it, and use the issue tracker  to report any bugs found!

The transformation game – evolution vs. revolution

Business is in constant motion. Our operating environment is continuously morphing, competitors rise and fall, fashion changes, technologies emerge and become obsolete, laws and taxes are modified. Successful corporations must follow the trends and be agile in order to adapt to the changing environment.

Thanks for @OttKostner for the bug reports and the test files!

The release is available at the release page, on GitHub and on SourceForge.

FreeplaneGTD+ v1.8.1 released

An interim bugfix release was issued to the previous build.

This build fixes the issue originating from the change in preferences handling between 1.7.1 and earlier releases and the 1.8.x branch.

An about dialog is also added, and some minor tweaks were added to the task display, to show more concise results on the timeline list.

The release is available at the release page, on GitHub and on SourceForge.

Bugs are likely to occur, please report them using GitHub.

FreeplaneGTD+ v1.8.0 released

Support waiting tasks, IOS support, mark task complete in tasklist.

This is a major rewrite of the interface. Bugs are likely to occur, please report them using GitHub.

New features:

  • Task editor support added for labeling tasks as waiting for somebody, and waiting until a specific time for next action
  • Task list modified to use radio buttons instead of tabbed interface. This is done to save lots of memory, as well as trying to make the add-on IOS compliant
  • New hotkeys added to switch between task editor content
  • The task list shows the waiting for and wait until properties as well
  • The delegate view is modified to show both who the task is waiting for as it’s responsible
  • The timeline view is modified to show the waiting for items on the correct date
  • You can now mark items done straight from the tasklist

The about dialog is not currently finished, I’m seriously considering to skip that one altogether.

The release is available at the release page, on GitHub and on SourceForge.
