Once again, I have been freed from the tyranny of my inbox and calendar, and it is GOOD.
So, in spite of several hundred warnings to NOT DO IT, I initiated the steps to change my name at work. Lulling me into a false sense of security, I actually received mail in my new name for a couple of days before it all fell over and went boom.
Since Wednesday night of last week, I have not had access to my email or Lotus Notes calendar. Of course, I didn’t CARE on Thursday and Friday, because I wasn’t at work.
Then came Monday.
Yesterday morning, I panicked. Just a little. I went into the office, having no idea where I was supposed to be all day, nor what I was supposed to be doing. I missed meetings, I’m sure. And then there are those hundreds of emails piling up unread in my inbox.
Today, I find it liberating.
I’m freed from the tyranny of the daily grind, and forced to find other ways to share knowledge and communicate.
I’m picking up the phone (what a novel concept!). I’m getting up and walking down the hall to ask my question that way. I’m using our internal chat client.
Instead of living in my inbox, where I am interrupt-driven by whatever arrives there next, I’m living in our team wiki… making sure our project work is available to others, even if I can’t flood their inbox.
I’m more focused, less distracted, and my knowledge-sharing practices are improving.I think Luis might be on to something here.

One of the users using IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) 4.0.1 were planning to move some work items to a different repository.
To do this, they were considering the following options along with some requirements:
a. Move the work items, preserving workitem ID and if possible history also.
b. Export workitems to CSV file and then import it into other repository.
Here is the information that should help users with similar queries:
So those references would break if the work item is moved.

Rational RFE Community. A segment of the Telelogic product lines became available on February 1st, while a segment of the AppScan Source product lines became available in early January.
The Rational RFE Community enables you to submit your own idea for a new "request for enhancement" (RFE). Our development teams will review your request and provide status updates throughout its life cycle. You can even search, view, comment, and watch other RFEs based on the products you are interested in, allowing for deeper collaboration with our development teams and other product users. The RFE community also provides tools so you can keep track of the RFEs you've submitted, voted for, or simply are interested in!
Get involved today and help directly drive improvement to the products you use!
