Join us June 9th for THWACK’s Birthday & a Special Announcement!

Level 15

As you may or may not know, the THWACK Community is turning 13 this year. That’s right, we’re moving into our teen years and with that comes way better parties maturity and a grown up attitude. So instead of just thinking about ourselves, we want to give back to our amazing community of 130,000+ IT Pros and counting. However, THWACK’s birthday isn’t until June 9th… so you’re going to have to come back to see what we have in store for you

In the meantime, we’d love to hear your favorite THWACK memories in the comment section.

Stay tuned… more to come on June 9th.

Fantastic!! We need another episode of the Hangover.

Now I just have to work out what time it will happen in my timezone

My favourite Thwack moment was when I was asked to be a MVP. That was a sweeet day.

Sounds awesome to me, I'll be there (even if I have to put my headset on to enjoy the show, work, work!). Thwack is still the best technical community I've ever been lucky enough to be a member of, and long may it be so!

13 is also my lucky number, perhaps it's a good omen!

superfly99​ this year when we open registration, the calendar invite and session schedule will automatically convert to your respective timezone so no need to do the conversion yourself!

What a wonderful photo!  Thanks for making me smile.

Being a part of this community is great and being asked to be an MVP would be my favourite moment.

June 9th 12pm CDT is June 10th 3am AEST.

Hopefully I can wake up for it!

Also, who was the lucky person that got to clean up that mess?!?

Very nice, love your work.

3AM?!

Will it be so awesome that I should be awake for it??

I will do my best to remember and be awake for it but no guarantees.

Level 8

Seeing as I'll probably be awake anyway, I'll tune in to see what the huge announcement is.

Level 10

Where's the cake?

Level 9

Don't invite this guy or Jennifer - they are Party Poopers

Happy Birthday!!!  Can't wait to see what you all have to announce!

Level 12

When did you get a mascot?

I think you all are missing the lead story here!!   How did they get video from June 10th, 2016?  They must have a time machine!!   Maybe that's the announcement, but no, that would be too obvious since they obviously used a time machine to create the video.  Which of course means that the actual announcement must be even MORE COOL than the fact that they've been able to time travel!!

This must be huge!!

Not to mention the other questions this poses.   How did they generate the 1.21 gigawatts in order to do the time travel?   Do they have a Mr. Fusion or what?  Did they use a DeLorean, or were they not concerned with style?

Level 9

They didn't use a time machine, they engaged predictive assessment of the monitoring tools! This is what the tools told them would happen.

MVP
MVP

So they monitored a party that happened in the future, which means they can monitor things in the future?!

Not as cool as the time machine theory, so I'll stick with that.

Not to mention it has nothing to do with the fact that their announcement has to be MORE COOL than either time travel or monitoring things in the future!!

Happy Early Birthday! I bet the party will be a paragon of geeky fun!

Love it!

Level 20

The lab desk on the floor sideways lol!  The dog in the video with the gopro is funny too!!!

Level 12

The dog with the gopro put it over the edge for me. I busted out laughing. Had to show it to a few other people in the office. They busted out laughing too. Looks like a good time, count me in!

If you can monitor things in the future and only all that view to yourself, then you can plan your vacations for when all 773H breaks lose!

Room for a small one?

Level 14

I love the alert.  And I can't wait to hear what the announcement is.

Level 8

You guys have so much fun!!! I'm also jealous!:)

Level 13

The video team.  They do everything including windows.

Naah, easy, and it's already built into Orion (at least for the alert screenshot).  Remember we added time windows for alert actions? It's your run of the mill alert escalation policy, with a specific time period, set to run next week.  DevOps Continuous Party Delivery.

Now, the new NetPath tool on the other hand.. SolarWinds | Network Performance Monitor

Marvelous..

If it's me, you know I'm going to stick actual demo in there. 😉

Fun times ahead!!! Happy Birthday and let's get this party started!!!!

My favorite THWACK memory... the first poll I put up and got a very good response...

Level 9

Happy Birthday. I think over the past several years that Thwack really has grown into more of a 'community' than ever before. Keep up the good work.

We all love a good demo!!

Favorite THWACK memory: waking up to all the congratulatory messages and logging in to find out I'd won a prize!

Favorite memory? 2014 Thwack Camp... patrick.hubbard​ read off my name for the winner of the $250 Lego Gift Card, and then he read my response and laughed, "Everything is Awesome!" (in reference to The Lego Movie)

I ended up donating the card to my daughter's infant & toddler's daycare for special needs children. Lego Duplo is a great tool for occupational therapy. PACT World of Care, a part of Kennedy Krieger.

Oh no I'm late

Wait - It's not till 3am on the 10th

Is there a registration somewhere or have I missed something?

As we get closer the 3AM start seems more and more daunting. I will see how I go tonight.

Level 13

It's past midnight here! Where it is ?

Happy Birthday!

Definitely a good chuckle with the dog wearing the GoPro.  Did anyone else catch the open Ghostbuster trap on the floor?  Looking forward to the announcement.

Level 9

Immediately caught my attention, too.  Sounds like a great prize for next month's mission!

That announcement totally rocks! I already entered!
