Nerd Girl Run - Part 5
Kathy Brown    

Whew that was a heck of a cliffhanger, huh? Potential dead hookers, then no update for three weeks.

So, no, there were no dead hookers. At least, not in our room. And yes, Jenna was still there in the morning. Our first mission of the day was to find Starbucks. Of course, the NEXT exit off the highway had about 55 hotels to choose from, but let's not dwell. Clearly we (I) didn't look all that refreshed, the lady at Starbucks gave me an extra shot of espresso. And we were off.

Sadly, Indiana had no welcome sign for our arrival (all other states previously did, well not for us specifically, but for any vehicles on the highway). Ohio even said goodbye, which was nice.

Indiana...Indiana...what can I say? "Stay classy, Indiana". Jess and I stop at the rest area. We head to the restroom, I accidentally cackle loudly upon entering and a woman in a stall ON THE PHONE makes some sort of comment. I promptly turn around, leave the restroom, re enter and say "Wow, what was up with that chick laughing?". Cuz I'm kooky like that. Women on the phone proceeds to complain on her cell that she had her dog and just because there was a sign that said no dogs, that shouldn't apply to her, it wasn't like it was pooping or anything. Sigh. As I said, "Stay classy, Indiana".

Nerd Girl playlist:

INXS rock block
Kid Rock rock block (is that a Kid Rock block?)
"Single Ladies" - Beyonce

And peace out, Indiana. We had a license to Ill-inois.

Jess thought Illinois drivers were very Illinoy-ing.

But we still had some fun...

And then finally, at 1:51 central, 32 hours after we left Rhode Island, we arrived in St. Louis.

And we REALLY needed showers.

And our rooms weren't ready.

And there were already Lotus peeps in front of the hotel.

Taking pictures.

Of us.

Dammit.

IBM ConnectED 2015 Many people have looked into their crystal balls and tried to guess what would become of Lotusphere, errr, IBM Connect, for 2015.  While full details are not yet out, we do have a new landing page to see.  As well as a new name, again.  Sort of. UPDATE: Registration is now open! Did You See These? Often we go about our lives, and we don’t notice when new things appear. Take for example, Content Types on a Computed Field.

Review: Hands On Sencha Touch 2
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 6:12p   Kathy Brown
Hands-On Sencha Touch 2 By: Lee Boonstra O’Reilly Publishing Right off the bat, I like the comparison to Sencha Touch versus jQuery Mobile, Appcelerator Titanium, and Kendo UI Mobile.  (Although a bit biased, perhaps, as the author is employed by Sencha, but still useful).  The book targets beginner to intermediate programmers, experienced with JavaScript, JSON, CSS3, and HTML5.

Race Report: What?!
Sun, Aug 3rd 2014 9:15p   Kathy Brown
That’s right.  It’s a race report.  My last report was for my disappointing marathon in 2010.  My last actual race was a 10k in June…of 2011.  Over three years ago. Last week, I ran in the Yankee Homecoming 5k.  I just re-started running again recently.  Recently == June.  I knew I could finis, but I knew I wouldn’t be fast.  I had no expectations other than just running.  Not a lot to report on the race itself.  Official race time: 31:15.  I came in smack in t [read] Keywords:

IBM Champion!
Mon, Jul 28th 2014 4:12p   Kathy Brown
So many of the IBM Champions have received their “swag” kits.  As a repeat offender, errr, Champion, I felt I had a bit of experience on my side when selecting my swag.  Last year’s jacket only came in Men’s sizes.  Figuring I’d rather have a jacket too big, than a jacket too small, I ordered an XL, which was as you can imagine EXTRA LARGE.  So this year, we had women’s sizes to choose from.  I selected TWO jackets in TWO sizes, figuring I would at least [read] Keywords: ibm

And here we are, the July edition of articles posted on SocialBizUg.org… Fixing Issues in SourceTree I’ve written a few articles on source control.  As you’ve probably guessed, I’m a big fan of source control.  In those articles, I use the Mercurial plugin within Domino Designer with a Bitbucket repository. Lately, I’ve been using Sourcetree to take care of the handling between the NSF, the on disk project, and the online repository.  No solution is 100% perfect and Sourcetree [read] Keywords: domino xpages javascript

My First Computer
Wed, May 28th 2014 2:12p   Kathy Brown
Ant Pruitt, over here, asked if you remember your first… computer.  Of course I do.  I have the world’s worst memory, but I remember my first computer. We had the Commodore VIC 20.  With it’s awesome tape cassette player to store programs.  We were not rich by any means.  I was too young to realize that this may have been expensive.  I don’t even remember if my mom had it for work or what.  But we had it.  And I remember spending hours at it.  Until we upgraded t [read] Keywords:

Part 1 of the article I co-wrote with Brad Balassaitis is now available on the View website. This is a deeper dive on the topic that Brad and I co-presented at IBM Connect earlier this year.  Part 2 will be coming out soon. The enterprise is global. If your organization stretches across borders or your clients are in other countries, you cannot just develop an application in your native language and expect that to be good enough. XPages allows you to enable localization and provide multiple lan [read] Keywords: ibm xpages application enterprise
