I'm not a speaker so I'm really not tied down to having to be at any particular place at any one time. But as my calendar is showing, it's filling up quickly. And as the company I work for is good enough to continue to send and support me going, I will be in the one place I need to be, my seat. Soaking up as much as possible. And taking lots of notes...about Notes and Domino and Sametime and Traveler and etc. And blogging. As much as possible. Live blogging the OGS? Perhaps. Need to find a good way to fit it into my Blogger account. But if all else, I'll join the Twitter chorus using the #ls11 hash tag. So if you see me wondering about the conference, be sure to say hi. Only 11 more days until wheels up to MCO! See ya down there!
Lotusphere/Connect Protip - Whatdoyaknow? You CAN use Traveler too!
Fri, Jan 18th 2013 5:46a Andy Donaldson Yesterday I posted a tip here on the House O' Blog about using mail rules to forward your often overlooked conference mail to an email account you check more frequently. After posting that, my buddy Don McNally pinged me on Twitter wondering if Traveler could be used like he had in the past. I hadn't noticed anything on the page that stuck out about that and didn't think much about it further. That was until this morning and I was on the site taking a look around and I see this.

Lotusphere/Connect Protip - Don't neglect the conference mail
Thu, Jan 17th 2013 6:29a Andy Donaldson For years there has always been a lot of complaints/jokes about the Lotusphere Online, now SocialBiz Online, user experience. Okay, I agree that spinning up a system for the community to use for a month and then tearing it down doesn't make for great adoption. However, for customers like me, I do find some use out of it. Not getting to play with Connections a lot, (yes, I know there is Greenhouse), this is nice because it forces/reminds me to use it. Then, there is the mail system included [read] Keywords: connections
Wed, Dec 19th 2012 10:21a Andy Donaldson So I'm sitting in the office right now and it's almost time for me to scamper out of here for the rest of the year. 2012 was a busy year for me. Spent a lot of time working on stuff outside of work, which is a good thing. So here's my random rundown of the cool things, at least for me, that happened this year. Spoke at Lotusphere 2012. Couldn't have done it without the help and support from my family putting up with me talking to the wall in the basement for a month while I practiced. [read] Keywords: lotusphere
Update on Domino Directory to LDAP migration
Sun, Dec 16th 2012 3:30p Andy Donaldson Well, it's done. I migrated my Sametime infrastructure this morning to support LDAP. A lot of people had warned me it wasn't pretty. They were right. I got a nice early start in hopes that I would get done quick. That didn't happen. It took over three hours to get the first server updated. The problem I ran into which I hadn't seen before was that my Domino program folder and data folder are on too different drives. So when you run the stnamechange.cmd file, it's assuming the data f [read] Keywords: domino
My Connect 2013 abstract has been.....
Thu, Dec 6th 2012 1:17p Andy Donaldson Declined. Am I sad? Maybe a little, but not really. I'm actually kind of relieved that I'm not presenting this year. I can head to Orlando and enjoy myself! Relax! Learn lots of good stuffs! No stressing out all week leading up to the session. I mean, I did get to speak at Lotusphere 2012, the last time the conference was officially called Lotusphere. And I did get to share the stage with Tom! I also got to present the same session again at MWLUG2012 in Pittsburgh and, I had my son Ale [read] Keywords: ibm
