Rather foolishly or rather smartly, I have
not yet decided, late last year I agreed to take part in the 2012
Big Bloggers Dander for Dosh (not sure it was called big last
year, perhaps they added that for me?), anyway, I signed up and I will
be taking part in the week prior to UKLUG
Why should this concern you? Well
during the year I'm going to be trying to hit you up for sponsor money,
all those people that I've ever helped free of charge with a Sametime question,
it's going to be time to cough up, all those folks that are using the free
Epilio plug-ins and tools and never pressed the Facebook like button, you'll
need to pay up too. So let this be fair warning to you, start saving
your pennies, I'll be expecting you to sponsor me and I wont be shaving
my head this time.
If you're interested in taking part,
put a comment on Steve's blog I'm sure we can accommodate.
For those that always ask about Jessie,
and the majority of people that read this blog do, and she does appreciate
it, it is my plan to try and take Jessie, so we will be training leading
up to the event, and hopefully I will have all her pet passport etc. sorted
out for entering the UK. 26 miles may not sound like far, but now
imagine doing it with a couple of hundred pound back pack!
Another one speaking at IamLUG
Tue, Apr 30th 2013 8:50a Carl Tyler Like many others I will be in St. Louis
next week, speaking at IamLUG, and Epilio
are sponsoring the Monday night drinks. I decided not to do any really
tough presentations on Sametime, but am instead doing an updated version
of a presentation I first did at UKLUG "25 Years of Lotus and Still
Going Strong" which contains lots of demos of old Lotus products.
As usual, I'll probably have some old freebies to give away.
If you've not already registered yourself,

Fat man walking...all for a good cause.
Mon, Feb 11th 2013 1:40p Carl Tyler It's time for you to reach into your pockets
and sponsor me. Perhaps you've used our free plug-ins, perhaps you've
used our free Sametime admin tools, it's time to pay up. Now it's
not like that crazy sponsorship thing where all I had to do was shave my
head and paint my face blue, this one actually involves some serious preparation
and training. We managed to raise close to $3,000 dollars for the head
shave, so really hoping people will delve deep for this effort to smash
that amo [read] Keywords: admin

A word of warning to those thinking of leaving IBM
Mon, Dec 10th 2012 9:00a Carl Tyler Late on Friday night I got a call from
a distraught friend, their daughter had been playing with their mobile
phone, and whilst the child was playing with the phone, the device had
prompted for a password, after their 5th attempt at entering a password
the device reset itself to Factory settings. So what had happened?
Well about 3 months ago this person
was let got by IBM, prior to that, they had been using their own iPhone
as their business phone, you know all that we're so tight s [read] Keywords: ibm
Add some Bling to Sametime on your iOS device.
Mon, Oct 8th 2012 11:40a Carl Tyler Use Sametime on your iOS device? Want
to add some bling to your messages?
No problem, just install Emoji as an
additional keyboard and you can send messages that contain all sorts of
coloured emoticons. If the person on the receiving end is using a
Windows device, they'll see them as black and white Emoji (Windows doesn't
have coloured fonts), Mac devices will see the full colour. Why do
this instead of using emoticons? Well with these you're not sending jpgs
around your organi [read] Keywords: sametime
