Pat O'Connor did a great job this year designing our Limited Edition, highly collectable, sure
How do you get yours?
1) Wander down to the Solution Center and find the eSupport pedestal (look for the blimp). Pat O'Connor, aka @RationalWebGuy will be manning the pedestal and will have cards.
2) I will be at the conference, in the role of roving reporter. I'll be blogging, twittering, taking photos and getting into trouble. I will have cards. So how do you find me? Follow http
3) You may even occasionally find them lurking in random corners of the conference.
Only the Shadow knows....

Here in Rational Client Support, we don't focus on just our own little slice of the pie. Rather, we constantly collaborate with our peers across IBM; sharing ideas and best practices to aid each other as we drive towards success together. And when our colleagues come up with some great stuff to benefit all of us, well we are compelled to share it out with you... after all knowledge shared is knowledge gained!
Case in point: Our friends over at Information Management support have begun a "100 Tech Tips" series, the first five posts, at least, being relevant to ANY IBM support client, whether you have IM products, Rational products, or any other IBM product with which you need support!
So head on over to their blog "Thoughts from Information Management" and check the following VERY worthwhile posts in their "100 tech tips" series:

Imagine my surprise when I came in to work Wednesday morning and saw the visit count on the prior day's post (Twenty seven new downloads now available!) showed over 800 visits! From my use of an exclamation point in that previous sentence, I'm sure you can discern that 800+ visits on a single post in 24 hours isn't typical for this blog, and is particularly high for what we'd consider normal levels of traffic.
This pleasant surprise got me to thinking: what specifically about that post resonated so greatly that warranted such a high visit rate?
We've posted technical content like this before with somewhat tepid results, and conversely we've posted op/ed type pieces with similarly high results, leading me to think that one type of content over the other isn't entirely the driver here. Perhaps it is the time it was posted, or perhaps the day it was posted? We HAVE seen posts made earlier in the day tend to see higher visit counts than posts made later in the day... and Tuesdays/Thursdays do tend to bubble up as higher traffic days as well.... but I still can't get away from the idea that I'm still missing something relating to the specifics of the content we are publishing out...
So I'm coming to you, our audience, to ask you to answer two very pointed questions:
Helping us with these two questions will, of course, result in providing you with more focused content particular to what you find valuable and helpful!
And, in case you may feel a bit unintentionally duped by my title of this particular post, hoping to find even more downloads similar in fashion to the post referenced above, have no fear; here's a few more which hit our streams over the past two days:

We'll be back tomorrow with more great content focused on helping you get the most out of IBM Rational Support and your IBM Rational products!
For now.... It is that time of year when many Americans roll out that one last big blow-out barbecue party before the summer comes to a close and we look toward welcoming winter, albeit a bit trepidatiously. While the holiday has indeed come to symbolize the end of summer for many of us (it isn't, summer doesn't end until September 22), it started and remains as an American federal holiday to honor the worker; a day when we recognize the contributions of the American worker by relaxing and eating lots of BBQ
All this, of course, means your loyal blog admins are off galavanting (or just sitting on the sofa) and not actively working today. But that doesn't mean we don't have some good content for you! In this case, it is a video from IBM Electronic Support guiding us all on how to download software from the Fix Central repositories.
