DarrenTDI tip – of the AMC seems inaccessible (i.e, you don’t see any images) try running “TDI_install_dir/bin/amc/setAMCRoles.bat(sh) username
SharonUse an iPad / tablet for taking notes while you are out and about – I didn’t think I would ever use it for that .. and that is now my primary use.
StuartBuy new batteries for your MP3 recorder before attending an event!  Seriously, DB2 config for Connections 3.0.  Be afraid, very afraid! Resource requirements are significantly up on 2.5.
