Notes Downloads - IBM fails again
While the download of the 25C3 videos is no problem at all, due to the fact, that they are also offered as torrents, downloading the new IBM Notes 8.5 client is – as expected – the usual hassle.
First off, IBM seems to have a few expired SSL certificates still in use:
Secondly, they were – again – not able to distribute the files to all download servers before offering the files. The server located in Ireland does not – until now – hold the new Notes 8.5 files. You have to download them from the US. And it’s not that Notes 8.5 is sooo new, that they didn’t have the time to upload the code to the server in Irland. According to Ed Brill, NOtes 8.5 is finished at least since December 18, 2008.
They never learn. :(
