Tips:

Darren:

If you are using Veeam make sure you understand the new “proxy” features. Especially powerful if you are doing DR Veeam replication. And make sure to see if putting a proxy at each site will be helpful (hint, it will).
Handly:

Notes Tips Podcast  Good new podcast for both new and experienced Notes users.
Luis:

Community Widgets gallore !!! - Announcements, Events, Assets, Photos, Videos, Community Contacts, Community Leaders, and Reviews.
Stuart:

An anti-tip - don’t buy an Iomega ix2 NAS - most appalling piece of tech crud I’ve bought in a long while!
More positively, treat yourself to a decent sized monitor, best investment you can make.  Just bought an ASUS VK278Q 27” display with built-in webcam, display port, speakers etc, just 235GBP or $260 (Amazon UK | Amazon US)
