Recorded on Thursday 2nd August 2012. We are joined by Warren Elsmore, Niklas Heidloff and Christian Guedemann to discuss Warren's latest incredible Lego project and his link to the London 2012 Olympics, the new OpenNTF development contest and WebGate's experience with their winning entry last time, and the upcoming (at the time) UKLUG user group.

Please Read:

As you may have noticed, August the 2nd was a while ago, so yet again we've had a bit of an hiatus in releasing these shows. The fault lies completely with me - vacations and workloads have definitely not helped.  However, rumours of our demise have definitely been exaggerated! We will be continuing to release shows to meet your collaboration needs through this autumn and winter, perhaps not every week but reasonably often, continuing to heighten your podcast pleasure through to the unbeatable climax of a live and final ever TWiL show at IBM Connect 2013 in Orlando.  Does that sound good?

    It could be good idea to use trendy elements when you design. They can modernize a modern and stylish feel to a fresh feel. It is best to use trendy accents to small items. A cheetah print table runner is easily replaced with little hassle if it goes out of style. A zebra print isn't as easily replaced.
