Thin Planet Planned Down Time ================================================== 1. iBUZZ Poll - The Impact of Web-enabling Technologies ================================================== The results of this month's iBUZZ poll are now available at: http://www.thinplanet.com/iBUZZ/Polls/poll8results.asp Background Information: Will the growing demand to "web-enable" applications become a disruptive force that ushers in a new generation of industry leaders? Global adoption of the Internet as the preferred medium for business communications has led to a growing demand for "web-enabling" solutions. A web-enabling solution is one that provides your employees, customers and/or business partners, web-based access to existing, non web-based applications. The ability to "publish" existing applications to the web, thus eliminating the need to purchase and/or develop new web-based applications has tremendous appeal to today's IT decision makers. While Microsoft continues to ignore customer demand for a cost effective web-enabling solution, Microsoft's competitors are preparing to capitalize on the opportunity.

Free at Last! ================================================== Citrix Systems Demonstrates that it holds the key to Digital Independence The new slogan coming out of Citrix Systems is "Digital Independence", signifying freedom from the traditional complexities and constraints of computing, enabling users to access the applications they need from any device or server, over any connection, with greater predictability and speed. This is a pretty bold concept, but Citrix is demonstrating to the world that it has the technology to make Digital Independence a reality. Read "Free at Last!" for a glimpse into the future of server-based computing: http://www.thinplanet.com/Opinion/freedom.asp ================================================== 3. Announcing ASP Island ================================================== Thin Planet is preparing to launch ASP Island, our new web-based community dedicated to the emerging ASP industry. ASP Island will be the most comprehensive resource center for Application Service Providers (ASPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), ASP Resellers, IT professionals and end users that are interested in the ASP industry. Island Partners In preparation for our launch, we are currently accepting contact information from ASPs, ISVs, ASP Resellers (VARs, NSPs, etc.) and Manufacturers that are interested in having a presence on ASP Island. There will be a broad range of opportunities for all players in the industry, and we want to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate from the start. Please complete the appropriate form (below) to ensure that you don't miss your opportunity to be involved in the global launch of ASP Island. ASP Partners: http://thinplanet.com/aspisland/ASPpartnerform.asp ISV Partners: http://thinplanet.com/aspisland/ISVpartnerform.asp ASP Resellers (VARs, NSPs, etc.) http://thinplanet.com/aspisland/DISTpartnerform.asp Product Manufacturers http://thinplanet.com/aspisland/MFGpartnerform.asp If you're caught in the ASP industry wave, then ASP Island is an opportunity that you won't want to pass up. The industry is exciting and the competition is already starting to heat up, but there is lots of work that needs to be done before the ASP model lives up to its expectations. Customer awareness and education will restrict the industry's growth rate, and that's where ASP Island comes in. As a Thin Planet Community, ASP Island will draw off our existing resources and quickly become a valuable web resource for the ASP industry. The Island Pass The Island Pass is your free ticket to ASP Island that will allow you to gain access to all of our premium content as soon as the site is launched. In addition, members will receive our free ASP Island newsletter designed to keep you informed of industry developments and opportunities as well as ASP Island enhancements.

Thread link: http://thinplanet.com/community/boards/quick.asp?p=19990913143259118779 ================================================== 6. User Group Update ================================================== Since kicking off the Thin Planet User Groups several groups have been added (now 36 total world wide) and more than 4,400 members have joined. We have received significant feedback that an on-line format would greatly enhance the value of the groups. The consensus is that on-line user groups are more convenient then traditional user group meetings and it allows more members to participate. For these reasons, on-line services have now become the major focus of Thin Planet's user group efforts. We will continue to encourage and support traditional meetings, however, we will look to the group members to define and drive the meetings. Tech Boards Integrated with the User Groups To encourage regional discussions, we have integrated the User Groups with the Tech Boards. The Tech Boards have been modified to track messages by user group and all existing messages have been modified to reflect this information. Now when you go to your user group home page you will see a complete list of the Tech Board messages that have been posted by members of your group. As you post new messages to any of the Tech Boards they will also be posted to your user group. The User Groups are now located in the Tech Center (main navigation bar), or you can use the following direct link: http://thinplanet.com/community/usergroups/ ================================================== 7. ThinQUIZ Update ================================================== The ThinQUIZ has been live for a little over a month now, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. If you have not tried the ThinQUIZ, it is a web-based training and certification preparation tool. Each week (mid-night Sunday evening) we publish 10 new questions in each of three categories - MetaFrame, WinFrame and Windows NT (additional topics to be added in the future). ThinQUIZ is an interactive tool that will keep track of your score for each session. During a session, you decide how many questions you want to answer and what topics you want to cover, it's completely up to you. Your test session can be as long as you want, but if you are idle for more than 10 minutes we will automatically end the test and record the results. A custom results page will retain a complete graphical history of your test results so that you can review your progress over time. Best of all, ThinQUIZ is free of charge to Thin Planet Community members - enjoy! ThinQUIZ can be found in the Training Center, or use this direct link: http://thinplanet.com/thinquiz/ ================================================== 8.

Thin Planet Planned Down Time ================================================== We will be performing a series of site upgrades this weekend (9/25-9/26) that are required to keep up with our continued growth, and to prepare for the integration with the future ASP Island.
