Lotusphere Booked

For the past two years around this time
I’ve had to go to my manager and convince the company that Lotusphere is
where I needed to be the following January.  It was a case of working
out costs, sending them to the CIO for approval and waiting for the verdict,
luckily for the past two years the verdict has been yes.

This year it’s a little different, while
I was on my wonderful holiday in Las Vegas the company I work for decided
to announce a major restructuring, one of the things to come out of the
restructuring was the transfer of the IT function from Dublin to Germany.
 Unfortunately for me this means that I am soon to be made redundant.
 It will be a shame to see a wonderful Domino infrastructure that
I built from the ground up being handed over to another administrator but
at the same time the severance package being offered is reasonable.

So when the decision about going to
Lotusphere came up I only had one person to ask and that was myself.  I
said YES

So see you all in Orlando in January.

Which reminds me, if anybody is looking
for a good IBM Lotus Notes, Lotus Domino and Companion Products administrator
then let me know….

Now that football season has started…

A first grade teacher in Cleveland explains to her class that she is a
Browns fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too,
are Browns fans. Everyone in the class raises
their hand, except the little girl. The teacher looks at the girl with
surprise and says, “Janie, why didn’t you raise your hand?” “Because
I’m not a Browns fan,” she replied.

The teacher, still shocked, asked, “Well, if you are not a Browns
fan,then who are you a fan of?” “I am a Steelers fan , and proud of
it,” Janie replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. “Janie,
why are you a Steelers fan?” “Because my mom is a Steelers fan, and my
dad is a Steelers fan, so I’m a Steelers fan too!”

“Well,” said the teacher in an obviously annoyed tone, “that is no
reason for you to be a Steelers fan. You don’t have to be just like
your parents all of the time. What if your Mom
was a moron and your dad was a moron, what would you be then?” “Then,”
Janie smiled, “We’d be Browns fans.”

The first beta version of Microsoft Windows Vista was released to beta testers today. Breaking with tradition MS have released a number of screenshots on their presspass website.

One of the new features in Windows Vista is called virtual folders. These folders show all the documents of a particular type in a single place, delete the file from the virtual folder and the file is deleted from it’s actual location.  There are folders that will show all music file, video file and even one called ‘All Documents’

I think we call these ‘Views’ in the Domino world
