It's that time of year. Time for resolutions. One of my resolutions for the year is to contribute more content, more often to this blog.
However, I still find myself in a bit of a post-holiday daze and while digging myself out of the pile of work I need to catch up on, I've decided to post something that might actually be useful for once :)
Here is a tip that comes from my good friend Mike McKay who is one of the product managers here at Novell that works on the PlateSpin products. Please feel free to thank him and pick his brain for more helpful hints if you ever run in to him.

Disclaimer: As with everything else at Cool Solutions, this content is definitely not supported by Novell (so don't even think of calling Support if you try something and it blows up).
It was contributed by a community member and is published "as is." It seems to have worked for at least one person, and might work for you. But please be sure to test, test, test before you do anything drastic with it.
