Day 2 of Connect was Road Map Day for me
Fri, Feb 24th 2017 3:36a   Keith Brooks
The day opened with Mat's AdminBlast session which was so full of tips and ideas he could barely get to all of them and he laid out how he manages his team and uses all the resources he can from Notes, Domino, Connections, Watson, etc. Great effort and valuable training for new managers to get a great view of how they could be working. Usually the sessions are a secondary benefit, for people like myself that are involved in the product line for so long. We have various meetings, briefings, sid

Welcome to NOT Orlando
Wed, Feb 22nd 2017 8:46a   Keith Brooks
IBM Connect, or Lotusphere, as us old people call it kicked off last night with the welcome reception and today with the Opening General Session. This year we break from tradition to visit San Francisco instead of Orlando. Many traditions may not return, but thank God for Ephox and Aussie Night, and Mat. Disclaimer, IBM Champions are invited in advance and are loved by Ephox. The usual cast of characters exist, like a Thanksgiving dinner, your business cousins, uncles and aunts and everyone in

Fix Your Own Computer And Advanced Backups
Tue, Feb 14th 2017 3:00p   Keith Brooks
I did these two sessions today as part of the technical track "SpeedGeeking" sessions. The Backup one was more of an interactive session with a link to numerous free and not so free backup software options. For last year's more detailed version see "My Dog Ate My Homework". Advanced Backups from Keith Brooks The Fix Your Own Computer session is to help non technical people understand some options when they run into a problem with their equipment. Obviously, in 15 minutes, one can not re

18+ Ways to Help Clients Love You
Tue, Feb 14th 2017 1:45p   Keith Brooks
This was my slide deck for today's Israel Translation Association (ITA) Conference in Tel Aviv. It is more specific than last year's "Worst Translation Practices" session but also more minmal. You will see no text, just logos and graphics. It is good for everyone to remember some of these no matter what business you are in or where you work in the world. 18+ Ways To Help Clients Love You from Keith Brooks

Destroying A Business From Within
Thu, Feb 9th 2017 2:00p   Keith Brooks
The other night we went out with 30 of our friends to a new restaurant and bar in our neighborhood for my birthday. My wife and I ate there a few days earlier and agreed it would work well for our crowd. Who knew one can make so many friends in two and half years of moving here but we did! While we don't always get together regularly, we do get together for drinks or late night food between 2 and 4 times a month in smaller groups and maybe once a month in a bigger way for a party or birthday.

Me? At a Hackathon? Lead a team? What?
Tue, Jan 31st 2017 2:10p   Keith Brooks
I submitted a topic for Alan Hamilton's IBM Connect Hackathon which takes place the day before the event. It was accepted, my team "Domino Tweets" is good to go!Our Motto : Stay at the pub longer, we'll tweet you if we need you, love your Domino Server! Why? Because I have wanted one thing for a while, a DDM (Domino Domain Monitor) notification via Twitter. As an admin DDM is my top inside the box tool. Notifications are usually in the database itself or in my case sent via em

Thursday Tips - Sametime Installations Gone Awry?
Thu, Jan 26th 2017 2:30p   Keith Brooks
I recently inherited a failed Sametime Complete 9.0 Installation that was stuck on the proxy server. This would be the 3rd time in the last 2 years I have had the same exact circumstance. Thank you all for bringing these to me. The commonality in each case was a reliance on the Zero to Hero 900+ slide deck. While it is a great guide to follow, especially if internally you need screen shot by screen shot directions, it lacks a few things that are kind of important. It makes it very clear every

If You're going to San Francisco...
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 4:48p   Keith Brooks
"You're gonna meet some gentle people there" - So sang the late Scott Mckenzie in May 1967 as an advertisement for the then upcoming Monterrey International Pop Music Festival. One of them will be me, as I have been asked to speak about one of my clients about their journey to the IBM Connections Cloud. The abstract officially says(link):Getting to the cloud is half the battle; while getting your users to follow you (let alone understand what is where or how) is another story entirely. From C

Mission Tools: Lotus Quickr to IBM Connections Cloud
Tue, Jan 3rd 2017 3:57p   Keith Brooks
Welcome to the 3rd installment of my migration project. I am happy to say that we moved everything over, now we are verifying everything came over and cleaning up all the orphaned and misc. files that were found and cross linked at one time. So, how did we get it all moved I bet you are asking. There is an automated way, via IBM and their partner in Europe T-systems, which is part of T-Mobile it seems, they can help and their pricing is really for the bigger companies. They have a process and
