Tips

Darren:
Superb travel charger kit if you are in the US La Crosse Charge4All. I only need to travel with one device charger now. This one. Does iShiny, mUSB, miniUSB and others out of the box. With car and wall charger and can charge up to 4 devices at once.
Paul:

If you use Lotus Traveler, you may have a requirement to display names in lookup/typeahead mode.  By default that works after you type in 4 characters.  You can alter this though – Go to NTSCONFIG.xml.  There is a parameter called NAME_LOOKUP_MIN_LENGTH. You can alter the required number of characters.
Stuart:

Matt White’s user group template – will be on OpenNTF soon. Fabulous value, works so well, covers most elements of organising a LUG – info sharing, registration, abstract submission, sponsorship and more.  Written in XPages, so also a great way to learn XPages best practice from one of the gurus.  Using it to organise a Connections user group, to be announced very very soon.  Look out for details in the next couple of weeks.
