The previous project kept me away from the blog, but expect it to pick up pace now that's over. I am taking a week of vacation to move into a new place and will have some time to catch up on all my web reading. Just wanted to say that the blog's not dead… just asleep for a few weeks. Here's a picture to show how hard this project was:
The acquisition of Micromuse by IBM marks a major milestone in the
growth of IBM Tivoli software because it significantly strengthens our
service management software portfolio for enterprises of any size. The
Tivoli and Netcool product integration white paper for enterprises, “Netcool + Tivoli: Delivering Service Management Innovation” is now available.
The primary audience of “Netcool + Tivoli: Delivering Service
Management Innovation” is Netcool and Tivoli enterprise customers.
Service provider customers will be addressed in a separate paper. This
paper will help clarify many questions your customers and prospects may
have about Netcool and Tivoli service management product portfolio
integration. The paper discusses the efforts in progress to deliver an
enhanced end-to-end IBM Service Management portfolio within each major
enterprise operational management category that contains Netcool
products. The white paper also addresses:
- Benefits associated with the combined Netcool and Tivoli portfolio.
- Safeguards in place to help protect, optimize, and extend investments in Netcool and Tivoli products.
- Short- and long-term plans to deliver a converged product portfolio.
So the log awaited “roadmap” is publically available. Look for another paper soon if you a service provider. It's public confirmation that Tivoli Security Operations Manager will replace Tivoli Risk Manager. See the PDF for details.

DWORD value and label it WriteProtect, give it a value of “1” and users
can no longer write to USB drives. To re-enable this option change the
value to 0 and users are again allowed to write.
The modifications you made will be in effect after you reboot your PC.
I will be onsite at a client for the next few weeks, so there's no telling how much I will be able to post. Here's a nice geeky comic to pass the time:
