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.

So, I was going to wall mount my TV.  In order to do that, I needed to find a stud.  A wall stud, that is. Now most people would tell you that you would need a stud finder, but I didn’t have one.  And I wanted to mount the TV NOW.  Off to the Google. The Google gave such suggestions as knocking on the wall.  Supposedly one could listen to the knocking or tapping and hear the difference between hollow wall and stud.  Unless you are part dog, that aint gonna work.  The Google also sug [read] Keywords: google

Part 2 of my View articles on Twitter Bootstrap is now available. (Subscription required). Once you’ve started using Twitter Bootstrap with your XPages applications, you can create a grid, use some Bootstrap classes, or even use some features via JavaScript or attributes. (For an introduction to using Twitter Bootstrap, see Part 1 of this series, Twitter Bootstrap: Getting Started. What else can you do with Bootstrap?

I somehow managed to not post about this, but I will be speaking at Engage next week!  Previously, BLUG, Engage is one of my favorite conferences (previously user groups ) to attend.  It’s an incredibly well-run conference and always in new and interesting locations.  And there is always loads of chocolate for the speakers.

March Notes Dev Tips articles are available: Intimidating Themes I admit it, I was intimidated.  I’m not sure why, but every time I saw a session on themes, I thought, “I should go to that”, or a blog post, “I should read that”, but I didn’t for the longest time.  I had some misconceptions that intimidated me. My first misconception was that themes were hard.  They aren’t.  I’ll show you how to create a theme in just a few minutes. Read more… Testing! Testing!

Great Sessions at IBM Connect 2014 Lots to see and do at IBM Connect 2014.  There was no way I could possibly see and do it all.  I tried my best to attend sessions that were important to me, and as usual, I still couldn’t see them all, but what I saw was great and always motivates me to learn even more. This year, I attended a few stand out sessions (no one get upset if I don’t mention YOUR session; remember, I couldn’t attend them all!). Read the article here.
