Comment Re:Just Don't Use Livelink (Score 1) 438

It doesn't return search results because you haven't configured Livelink properly, or you are using a very old version of Livelink.
Searching on the DataID can work. You should read up on 'Best Bets' functionality, or how to use the Livelink Query Language.

Regarding your second comment, is not called the favourites box, but instead 'Featured Items' and this behaviour is configurable in later versions, too.
Upgrade Livelink to version 9.7.1 if you are not already there.

Livelink is incredibly powerful and can be configured to do anything you need it to do, but the key is knowing how to do it. A skilled administrator is definitely needed.

I work for Open Text and am a certified Livelink Systems Administrator.

"Science magazine speculates that deaths from this event could exceed the 240,000 killed in the Tangshan quake in 1976, though the estimated death toll is below 10,000 at this writing"

ACTUALLY... nowhere in the articles at Science Magazine does it say they think it could exceed 240,000 deaths.

It says 10,000 so far. Period.

Talk about FUD!

Submission + - Bill Gates (Finally) Deposed as World's Richest (

Jamie writes: "Mexico's telecom tycoon Carlos Slim has overtaken Bill Gates to become the world's richest person. Mr. Slim is now worth $67.8bn (£33.6bn), above Microsoft founder Mr Gates' $59.2bn, Sentido Comun says. It said Mr. Slim's wealth has rocketed into top place after the recent 27% surge in the share price of his largest company, America Movil. He has a 33% stake in the firm, Latin America's largest mobile phone network."

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
