Quote from Becoming

Michelle Obama: I won’t try to speculate about who was responsible or what was unfair. I just wish more people had turned out to vote. And I will always wonder about what led so many women, in particular, to reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their president.

Fever RSS Reader still working – here’s how to re-install

Ever since Google disabled its RSS reader, I have been using Fever. But there are two problems: (1) The developer shut it down, and (2) the license is tied to a specific domain. But now I need to move my server to a new domain.

The good news: domain checking only happens during installation. I could have simply moved the files and database. For a different reason, I wanted to do a fresh install. This is how I did it:

  • Point my old domain to the new server
  • Perform the install – this will pull the application files from the Fever server
  • Import my feeds via an .opml file
  • Restore the original DNS entries

At this point, Fever does not care any more about the fact that the domain it was purchased for does not match the server’s domain any more.

New IMAP Server for my server?

New IMAP Server for my server?

Currently I use Courier. But OpenXChange is working on an extension for Dovecot to support chatting, in collaboration with Deltachat. As I plan a server migration anyway, this sounds like an interesting option. Not sure whether it would succeed, but getting away from WhatsApp would be welcome. Especially as I don’t want my messenger tied to my phone.

Something to check out:

With the exception of agent3’s insight platform, which maps account issues against your offering portfolio,

The final choice was a dashboard product from GoodData, which recommended a consultant to guide them through the process. The decision to buy a product rather than build a proprietary system enabled CSC to get the dashboard up and running in three months.

Quote from A Practitioner’s Guide to Account-Based Marketing

ABM makes such a measurable difference because it is designed with specific objectives aimed at a tightly targeted audience. Externally, it is an integrated, coordinated programme of activities that brings valuable propositions and relevant ideas to clients. Internally, it encourages closer cooperation between marketing, account management, sales and delivery teams because it is only truly effective when everyone involved with a client works collaboratively.

A key account plan, at its best, operates like a business plan, including objectives, sales targets, positioning, delivery and dependencies. But what it often lacks is a specific marketing element.

When you treat people like cogs in a machine, you’ll get no more than you demand, and you create an incentive to break the machine.
