Delivering 2 sessions at LotusSphere 2005 in January! They're going to be fun.

Well, they've allowed me back in this year. I'm really looking forward to delivering this new one. I think we'll have a lot of fun. If you have any ideas you'd like to see me incorporate, please let me know. Since this is a best practices track, I think what I'll do is post my general ideas here and get feedback and ideas from you as well if you're willing to toss them up. That way we have a really great collaborative effort at producing something that represents generally well considered ideas and not just my hair brained schemes.

Admin Zero to Hero in 60 Minutes
With two big offices on opposite sides of the country and one remote site three hours from the nearest airport, you’re the one who has to keep it all running. We’ll take a model infrastructure apart and examine the configuration from end to end including two clusters, internet mail routing, anti-spam, security, administrative task delegation, and replication, policies, and client update rollouts. Today’s powerful servers offer a wide range of approaches to every problem. In this session, we’ll look at which ones really are “Best Practices” and why. We’ll move fast, bring a liter of water and a protein bar.

I plan to update the presentation this year to include newer features and maybe a few things I've learned along the way. Did you find anything really missing? Did I tell you something that just didn't work? Pull up a chair, lets talk.

Last year you rated this the #1 session -- something which stunned me and for which I am truly grateful. I have always admired those people who are worth seeing at a show like this no matter what they are talking about, and last year you made me feel that for a brief time I was one of them. I didn't expect this to be a well attended session at all, so when I showed up "just in time" and the room was full I was pretty surprised. When afterwords they told me that there were two overflow rooms filled and had turned people away -- that I'd need to repeat the session I was really shocked.

I believe there was just a real lack of content in this area so you were all forced to sit through mine if you wanted to know about this stuff. I think this year the whole conference will have more focus on these core technologies, so I think maybe we won't have quite the crowd, but we'll still try to have fun with it.

Best Practices Using the Lotus Domino Administrator
If you’re not doing most of your administration work from the Administrator because you started out using the “NAB” and that works fine for you, or you still make replicas from one server to another one at a time across the network from your desk, it's time to look again. This tool keeps getting better and better. Explore user management, server stability and performance monitoring, database management and more from both the Notes and the Web versions of this awesome tool.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
