Quote of the Issue
"Read, every day, something no one else is reading.

Think, every day, something no one else is thinking.

Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do.

It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity." 

-- Christopher Morley

Setting LBI timeout params
I have seen postings on modifying the LBI timeout params for session and portal, etc.  However, I have yet to discover where this is done? In the LBI app itself or a table value or on the hosting server, etc?
2012 Pennsyslvania Act 32 Tax Changes

We are beginning to prepare for the 2012 Act 32 taxing changes for the state of Pennsylvania. I've gathered information from BSI, Lawson, the state of PA and other resources to better educate our company on the changes. We are based in MN and produce payroll in MN but have sales force of about 40 that live and work in the state of PA. What are others doing to prepare for this?  Read More... 

Thanks for your continued support of the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com.
