My daughter is a member of the Wyandotte Marching Chiefs. They are having a car wash fundraiser this Friday. If she pre-sells the washes, she gets to keep the money in her band account for her band camp (next week) plus other band expenses.
Because it’s part of the whole DeveloperWorks environment (which is based on IBM Connections), that gives all of you ANOTHER reason to join us over there if you’re not already a member! Once you are a member, head over to the IBM Social Business User Community and become a member!
It’s with great sadness that we announce the closure of the SocialBiz User Group. As a member, you’ll have access to the community through February 22, 2016.
User Group Leaders: Please make sure to download any files or resources you may have added to your user group community page.
Newsletter subscribers: Chris Miller will continue to write a newsletter for Notes/Domino administrators and host his archived Admin Edition Newsletter contributions. You can sign up for his ongoing Sys Admin Tips Newsletter to stay on top of the latest Notes/Domino news for admins.
It has been a pleasure serving this community and the user groups for over 10 years! Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Until next time…
The SocialBiz User Group Management Team
It’s sad to see this site go away, but it’s understandable. I want to thank them for providing so much useful information to the community at large, and for allowing me to appear on the site a couple of times. I also want to thank them for giving the Detroit Notes Professionals User Group a ‘holding spot’ for all this time until I can figure out the best way to revive it. YOU WILL BE MISSED!
Yesterday, IBM announced the 2016 IBM Champions for IBM Social Business. I was honored to be included in that list again. It’s very humbling to be included in a list of such talented people that I admire and who I consider friends. It’s great to see the 63 other returning Champions, plus 39 new IBM Champions! I’m especially proud to see my brothers Devin Olson (aka Spanky) and Steve McDonagh included in that list! (I’m predicting an ‘IBM Champion’ Collaboration Beer in our future.)
This is your final reminder to nominate all of those people who have been active, have assisted you and have been key ‘players’ in the IBM Social Business community.
I was asked by someone if you could nominate more than one person. ABSOLUTELY! If you feel that more than one person should be selected, then by all means nominate them!
I have been honored to be an IBM Champion for the past two years! I’ve taken my recognition as an ‘innovative thought leader’ seriously and have tried to push myself to assist whenever I could and speak out whenever it was necessary. To be among the ‘best of the best’ in our industry is something that I would not trade for anything in the world, and I now consider many of these people my very good friends and ‘family’.
Thank you to all of you for your support of the IBM Champion Program! Thank you also to the Program Managers (cat herders) of this program! We give you grief, but it’s because we really love you! Think of us as that kid in grade school that beats you up, but really has a crush on you…
IBM has released IBM Traveler 184.108.40.206 to Fix Central. Looks like there’s a new ‘Tell’ command:
IBM Traveler 220.127.116.11 introduces a new Tell command called “DBMaint” to help with maintaining enterprise databases. DBMaint can be used to test database fragmentation levels, set scheduled maintenance, and run maintenance to reduce table index fragmentation. Information on DBMaint can be found in the tell command reference section of the product documentation.
Looks like a few fixes as well. Get your download from Fix Central and get upgradin’…
I love the theme this year, “Transforming Collaboration Through Innovation”, as it speaks to what a lot of us are doing. We either change what we do WITH what we have (or can get) or we’ll get left behind!
If you are doing something different or new, submit an abstract! If you are doing something that could help others, submit an abstract! If you are doing ‘something’, submit an abstract! (Do you see a trend here?)
I simply LOVE THIS WATCH and want one in the worst way…
The problem? I’m too cheap to pay more than the lowest price…
Solution? I’m asking anyone that wants to get the Pebble Time when it gets released for $169 instead of $179 (for one watch if there are any left at that price) to let me know in the comments.
(It would be nice to get one from Pebble themselves for review, but I’m not nearly important enough to have that happen…)
