#DotNetNuke Superheroes Take to the Small Screen

Sprocketeer and TechMan Learn Miniature is Not Always Mighty

Don Gingold 0 5438 Article rating: No rating

Back from an informative DotNetNuke World 2012, TechMan is inspired. 

"We're the hit of the conference! Everybody was talking about showing websites on small screens. Miniature is in, man!"

"Right you are, old chum, The world needs small websites." Sprocketeer returned. "And we're just the size, er, guys to do it. Let's get busy! We're going to need to develop a shrink ray..." 

TechMan stops our Gallant Gearhead. "Wait a minute. I think we can build them without a shrink ray. Here's how."

After a full day of DotNetNuke classes and networking, our Mighty Mini Marvels of Content Management retire to the Sprocket Rocket sitting cloaked on the rooftop of the Lake Buena Vista Palace.

"Quite a full day, TechMan. My head is spinning with the new knowledge I've acquired this day."

TechMan quipped back, "Are you sure it's not the martinis, Sprocketeer?"

"Right you are, old @#$#@ chum. But let's recap. What did we observe today?"

#DNNWorld Opens with a Bang...

of the Steel Drum at the Wednesday Reception

The sound of reggae and calypso music floats across the water and down the path leading to the poolside party. Sprocketeer follows the sound of the steel drum as he makes his way in complete stealth to infiltrate the DNNWorld Opening Reception. 

But it wasn't easy. Even in the lush resort area, alligators and black snakes were a threat to our Mighty Mini Marvel of Content Management.


#DNN Superheroes Improvise to Reach Orlando

TechMan signals the Gallant Gearhead via the Streaming Krimestopper Yvesdropping Protocol Engine (SKYPE) : "Sprocketeer, I've just learned Joomler is up to his old tricks with a local business owner, trying to get him to build a website with quite the come-on. He's so two-faced." 

"You're literally correct, TechMan. His front face looks harmless enough, but his rear face is twisted and evil." retorted Sprocketeer. "What's your plan?"

What IS the plan? And how will Sprocketeer reach DNNWorld. Read on, true believer!

#DNN Superheroes Tangle with Word Empress

The Blog Bombshell matches wits with Sprocketeer and TechMan

Don Gingold 0 5022 Article rating: No rating

Seated at yet another cheap website, we find a man, his head in his hand, staring at his reflection in the bottom of a beer glass.

"Why did I fall for her? It all happened so fast. It all seemed so easy. She was so, so .. attractive. She promised a good time. All I said was, 'A little to the right' and she became a monster! I guess I'll just have to ... learn to live with it!"

Our Mighty Mini Marvels of Content Management, Sprocketeer and TechMan, had heard this story all too often. "We can help. Sit tight" said the Gallant Gearhead. "First, let's go find Word Empress."

#DNN Superheroes Plan Session Strategy for #DNNWorld

Safely returned from reconnaissance in Orlando, Sprocketeer converses from main headquarter with his heroic partner in website heroics, TechMan, taking Sprocket Rocket to the West Coast lair.

"I think I'll catch the talks on responsive design and mobile, TechMan. We've been watching Gravity Works for some time, since they came on the scene at Chicago Day of DotNetNuke." 

TechMan concurred. "Very well, Sprocketeer. I see the need for shifting identity, eh? After all, we shift our look from superheroes to everyday web designers, depending on the circumstances. I'll check out the cloud hosting and new version 7. And I'll go to Brinkman's talks. Those are always good."

Sprocketeer agreed. "I've always suspected Joe of having an alter ego. I look forward to seeing it revealed on Thursday night. So... we're all set for the sessions. Now it's just a matter of time."

"In the meantime, let's look at our other web crime monitors," returned TechMan, "and see if any arch are causing any trouble. Maybe we can squeeze in a fight with Word Empress or Joomler before we head to sunny Florida."

Tune in next time, web believers, for another exciting episode.

Sprocketeer and TechMan Report to LUG on #DNNWorld

Members of the League of User Groups Disagree

Don Gingold 0 3886 Article rating: No rating

From their Flat Panel Monitor aboard the Sprocket Rocket, as they return from a quick surveillance mission to Orlando, the dynamic website duo Sprocketeer and TechMan check in with LUG, the League of User Groups. Several of the main members were there, 

TechMan explained to the group "DNNWorld is shaping up to be a momentous occasion. We've scouted out the area and we're ready to return there next week. We'll be disguised as our alter egos of course."

As expected, MicroStar quickly agreed that he'd be there, HardSkin nodded affirmatively.And Modula wouldn't miss it, especially for the warm weather.

But of course, there was dissent. Sprocketeer turned to TechMan: "Same old Joomler and Droop-All; they typically disagree. It seems they live in a totally separate world. But no matter old chum, it looks like we have a quarum of quality consent."

Join us next time believers, when our heroes plan their strategic coverage of this week's event.

#DNN Superheroes Survey #DNNWorld Location

Where will the dynamic website duo stay?

Don Gingold 0 4084 Article rating: No rating

High above Lake Buena Vista, Florida, in the cloaked vessel Sprocket Rocket, our dynamic web content duo Sprocketeer and TechMan survey the land around Buena Vista Palace, where #DNNWorld 2012 will be commencing in less than a week.

"Plenty of rooftop, for easy access to the conference, and with it cloaked, the Sprocket Rocket won't be seen" says TechMan.

But the Gallant Gearhead had a different idea. "Don't forget that Sprocket Rocket is submersible, so an underwater lair is NOT out of the question. After all, this is LAKE Buena Vista. Our costumes drip-dry. Maybe we'll meet Aquaman!"

TechMan, always more practical, countered. "Aquaman is usually in the ocean, and certainly not licensed on Disney property. Sub-mariner, maybe. Plus," pointing to the viewfinder looking down on the hotel and the small body of water next to it, "THAT is not Lake Buena Vista. I believe it's a retention pond."

Sprocketeer agreed. "A keen eye, old chum. The rooftop it is. Besides, I don't think they charge for rooftop rocket parking. Not yet at least." 

Tune in next time when our heroes check in with LUG, the League of User Groups!

Two More Superheroes Attending #DNNWorld

Who ARE those Orange Fighters of Web Justice?

Don Gingold 1 3849 Article rating: 5.0

From their secret web design lair, those Mighty Miniature Marvels of Content Management, Sprocketeer and TechMan, plan their trip to DNNWorld. 

"It's in Orlando, right next to Downtown Disney. Do you think we'll find time to go see Mickey?" posed the Sprocketeer.

TechMan replied: "You know of course that even though he's a mouse, he's not actually our size." 

"Right you are, old chum. We'll have to be careful. It'd be rather embarrassing to be stepped on ... by a mouse!" shot back Sprocketeer.

The web design crime fighters will continue their plans and preparations over the next week, and you'll be right there with them, true believers! Stay tuned!
