Speaking at Lotusphere again - different topic

Well, for the fourth year in a row, I will be speaking at Lotusphere, but for the first time, it won't be any variation of my rich text talk.  This year I'm doing a talk on Advanced Lotus Notes/Web Coexistence, which is all about how to exploit some lesser known, or even well known, the features in R5, ND6 and ND6.5 to design once for both platforms, and when not to bother.  The official abstract is:

Discover useful tricks and techniques for handling forms, views and databases that must be used in both the Notes client and a web browser. Learn ways to better handle rich text fields, @DbLookups, JavaScript and UI methods to allow an optimal experience for both Notes users and web users. Learn when to create two sets of design elements and when to use just one. Covers native and third party solutions for managing Notes/Web coexistence.

I hope to see some of you there!  For those of you who are going to miss my demo filled rich text talk, I still plan to include some fun and fireworks.  Come and join the fun.

Looking forward to it... Unless, of course, it goes head to head with MY session... :-)

Plenty of people for both sessions, although I hope they don't conflict, because I'd like to come see your session. (I still want to know whether you have a stool behind the podium to stand on <grin>)

You are SO bad... Just 'cuz you could stack Joe and I and we'd STILL possibly fall short of your stature... :-)

Heck, I wouldn't ever even think about height except that I get mail every single day with subjects such as "Bigger is better" and "Add inches". I don't have time to read them, but I assume they are evidence that being tall is really important to a lot of people... Right?

Uh, yeah, Ben... That's it exactly... :-)

Well, as for height (or lack thereof), my wife (5 foot 6 inches, vs my lofty 5 foot 4 inches) claims that there are advantages to being with a shorter man, especially being able to kiss without having to look up and get a sore neck :-) So while being tall may be important to some, being short has advantages as well. And while tall folks get extremely uncomfortable on airplanes, I only get rather uncomfortable.

I will definitely add this session to my "must see" list. See you in Orlando!
