Lotusphere: Thanks for the Memories
Sat, Jan 31st 2015 9:56p   John Roling
On my last day in Orlando this week, I took a walk around the lake, the boardwalk, the beach and the Dolphin and Swan hotels. I just wanted to take it all in again, one last time. Myself and many of my friends have been migrating south every January for nearly twenty years to gather as a community, learn, network, and see each other in real life. It?s been an awesome ride, but Lotusphere as we know it in Orlando, is probably finished. Since that?s the case, that walk brought back a ton of mem

We’re the subject of an IBM Whitepaper
Thu, Jan 22nd 2015 1:40p   John Roling
It’s been a long time in the making, but myself and the company I work for are the subject of an IBM Whitepaper: IBM Notes and Domino Applications: A Road Map for Modernization using IBM XPages.  I’d like to thank John Head and PSC Group for their work on this whitepaper as well, and thanks to IBM for getting us involved. Lastly, I’d like to thank my development team at work.  They are some of the best in the business, and their hard work is what drives us.  It’s easy

Resolute 2015 – This time it’s Personal!
Fri, Jan 2nd 2015 2:30p   John Roling
Alright.  Since I failed so miserably at last years resolutions, I’m going to really try to focus on these this year and make them a reality. Get Healthier.  I just added a standing desk at work, so that will help.  I think I’ll cut back on cigars some and replace them with vaping instead.  I’ll eat a little less, eat a little healthier and when a certain health conscious watch comes out this year, I’ll probably integrate that into my routine.  I looked at my weight chart for the p

Okay, I completely sucked on my resolutions this past year.  Lose Weight?  HA!  Have fun with photography?  Nope.  Learn More? Not enough.  Put some reviews on the blog?  One. Did I keep a good work/life balance?  There I think I did pretty well.  I didn’t let work consume me to the point where I would sacrifice the family.  And since that was really the most important resolution, I think things went well. So 2014 in general for ME was okay, even though I didn’t do anything resolut

REVIEW: Ed Sheeran in concert
Fri, Sep 19th 2014 8:13a   John Roling
A couple of years ago, I heard a song by a new artist out of Ireland named Ed Sheeran.  That song was Lego House, and I was instantly hooked.  I love a good singer/songwriter and after delving into his album I really loved his style.  He plays acoustic guitar, can sing wonderfully and can really flow with his lyrics if he wants to.  So much so that a couple of his songs can even be considered hip/hop in nature. When I was getting into the album, I brought my wife out onto the deck one late n

BoxWorks 2014 Recap
Mon, Sep 8th 2014 11:13a   John Roling
As a person who has worked for a long time in the IBM Software space, I’ve been to a ton of IBM conferences. This past week, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and go to BoxWorks, the conference for box.com. For those unfamiliar, box.com is a cloud-based secure enterprise file sharing and collaboration service. It’s a new hip company that’s been kind of an analyst darling as of late. I brought it into our organization a couple years ago now, and usage has grown quicker than anything e

Farewell Robin Williams
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 8:00p   John Roling
Three months ago I said farewell to my friend Tim Tripcony.  Tim was a kind gentle genius, who felt that he needed to leave us far too soon.  This past week, I learned that a childhood idol of mine, Robin Williams, felt he had to do the same. It’s a horrible feeling to write back to back posts about people who felt they had no other option to combat the darkness they carried with them.  Depression is a very real disease, and I’m thankful that I’ve never felt that level of despair.  For

Farewell Tim Tripcony
Fri, May 16th 2014 2:40p   John Roling
My friend Tim Tripcony passed away this weekend.  As many others have said, he was a kind, caring soul who always gave of himself, and it’s a tragedy that he is no longer with us. Since hearing the news, I’ve been haunted by something he said to me one time.   One night after too many drinks at Kimono’s or some other Lotusphere party, we were talking and he no-so-jokingly said that he always felt “like he didn’t fit in.”  When I asked “Where?” h

Create the infamous Pretzel Cookie at Home!

Lotusphere Pretzel Cookie Alrighty, my awesome wife found a recipe at cookiesandcups.com that emulates the taste of the infamous Lotusphere Pretzel Cookie almost perfectly.  It requires the following: Ingredients 1 cup butter, melted and browned 1 1/4 cup light brown sugar 2 eggs + 1 yolk 2 tsp vanilla 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 2 1/4 cups flour 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels 2 cups chocolate chips How to Make Preheat oven to 350° Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

I spent the past week at a conference in Orlando Florida like I have fifteen times prior.  IBM Connect (Lotusphere until last year) is an IT conference that focuses on IBM software and technologies.  It’s been a place where I’ve networked, met lifelong friends, learned all about the software that manages our business, engaged with IBM and had some fun along the way. I think this might be the last time I’ll make the trip. Don’t get me wrong, I thought the conference was great this year
