My 5 Lotushere Limericks.

I Love Limericks, I’ll be honest. So when I saw this page on Mary Beth Raven’s Blog, I couldn’t resist.

Here’s 5 that I submitted:
there once was a man named Jake
in Lotusphere he wanted to partake
he jumped on a plane
looked out the pane
and knew it wasn’t a mistake

There once was a man named Bill
He thought Lotusphere was a thrill
He drove straight down
To Orlando town
Where he wouldn’t catch a chill

There once was a smart fellow
He swore he only bled yellow
he wrote lots a code
with a workload
but at Lotusphere he was mellow

There once was a man named Gwen
He was a Domino admin
He smiled with a grin
as he wrote with his pen
Using Exchange is a sin

There once was a man in his prime
at his desk he acted a mime
his boss came over
looked over his shoulder
and said blogging is a waste of time

Move along…this isn’t the employee that’s been wasting time that you’re looking for.

Why does the “Notes floats my boat” ad on PL look so much better than the actual downloads at Maysoft?

Whoever did the graphic design for the “Notes floats my boat” ad that appears on the front page of did a great job. It looks great. Very web 2.0 glassy look to the ad.

I can’t say the same for the free download wallpapers that are on Maysoft.

They look like we are back in 1996, and the wallpapers remind me of the boxes that Lotus Notes R4 media used to come in.

Watch your health and overtime in 09.

This article really hits home for alot of us IT people. As someone who has felt the symptoms of work related stress due to too much overtime and witnessed co-workers go through a burnout phase, I take stuff like this very serious.

Remember to get regular exercise, gauge how much overtime you are working, find a good family work life balance, and try to have an open dialogue to discuss any issues you have with your manager.

Here’s a quote from the story.

Smashing: The more thoroughly the better

I found this story on how fraudsters steal information from recovered files on second hand computers pretty surprising. The digital realm is offering so many ways for fraud, and so many non-tech people are oblivious to it.

Here’s the BBC Story Link: Hard drive destruction ‘crucial’

The best part was where it states that you should hammer your hard drive to be 100% sure with detailed steps on how to do it including “Smashing: The more thoroughly the better.”
