What stress? I run NetWare

For those of you heading to Brainshare. I want you to be on the lookout for some cute Penguin Stress Balls that I'm sure are going to be a hit and will become a collector's item.

Avanti Technology is handing these Penguins out the first two days of Brainshare.

"While Stress and NetWare are as much of an oxymoron as Flying Penguins and Open Source Windows, we still thought a stress ball might come in handy when dealing with non-NetWare issues that arise daily.

We'll be handing them out the weekend before and during the first two days of Brainshare so be on the look out for the Avanti Penguin Stress Ball. "

Please post a comment on this blog and let me know if you were able to obtain the Penguin Stress Ball. When you see Steve Meyer from Avanti, tell him Bucky sent you!

After you're done reading this post I'd like you to check out two very cool Pro NetWare sites.

1. Of course - Avanti Technology - Check out Task Master!
2. IWANTNETWARE.COM - Stop by and sign the Online Petition.

Help Save NetWare! NetWare is a great operating system. You can't go wrong using tools around NetWare and eDirectory such as IDM3, ZENWorks, and GroupWise which all scale nicely and provide so much networking power with a minimum amount of servers and staff.

Have fun at Brainshare! I won't make it this year, but I won't miss it next year!

- Bucky

We missed you at Brainshare!

The Penguins were a hit... Especially with some Novell employees.

Unfortunately, weather hindered our distribution plans some so we will be sending out batches to local NUI groups who request same and possibly even putting up a page where people can request one directly.

Keep posted...

Another option is to check with your local NUI chapter (DANUG)...
