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 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

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.

I remember the first time I saw him.  It was at my first Lotusphere.  Back when he had a lion’s mane of hair.  He wasn’t the presenter, but he answered a question that had been asked (because of course, he knew the answer).  Back then, I didn’t know about Planet Lotus or who anyone was in our community.  I didn’t even know there was a community.  But after he answered, I thought, “holy shit that guy is smart.  I bet he’s the one everyone asks when they get stuck.”  Because [read] Keywords: lotus lotusphere xpages community planet lotus skype
