Happy Velsoft Christmas!

As is our annual tradition, I thought this week I’d find out what each Velsoftian wants most for Christmas. My list includes a column of items they each asked for, as well as things they really want but didn’t share these ideas with anyone. I hope everyone’s Christmas wishes come true this year!

(For myself, I asked for a new Harley Davidson t-shirt, but what I would really like to have is a Leonard Nimoy Star Trek Lunch Bag  so I can bring my lunch to work in style!)

On the Christmas list What they really want
Ben ‘See You Later Alligator’ Door Mat (for visitors coming by the new place) Army man shaped bottle opener (getting in touch with his inner army!)
Brandon Braun Electric Shaver Desktop Retro Arcade Machine (for while the computer is booting up)
Carol Unicorn Cereal Bowl (wanted one since she was a kid) Chocolate Care Package (when hugs aren’t enough)
Cindy Converse CTAS High Street Hi The Guzzle Buddy (for the end of those long days)
Dave Shower cleaning kit “Oh For Fox Sake” Mug (for when kids are in the office)
Dylan Yeti Hopper (must have for the photographer on the go) Blank Puzzle (he finds it calming)
Ian T Warby Parker Eyeglasses (every Superman needs a pair) It’s Your Turn to Walk the Dog Socks (for Tia)
Jan Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones  Bear Paw Oven Mitts (sometimes the bear must come out!)
Jim DJI Phantom 4 Drone Death Wish Coffee (for long days at the office)
Jimmy Bamboo Wooden Wireless Mouse  Remote Control Giant Rattle Snake (just because he doesn’t have a python)
John The Ultimate Beard Haircare Pack Slang Flashcards (to get hip to the language of the streets)
Michael The R2-D2 Coffee Press
Mozart Kitchen Timer (combining his love of classical music and cooking)
Nathan Toaster Grilled Cheese Bags Mario amiibo (or any other from Smash Bros Series)
Sandra Rose Quartz Bonsai Wishing Tree Animal Face Masks (for staff meetings)
Scott The Carry-On Cocktail Kit  Golden Girls Monopoly (his fav show!)
Sydney Full set of Stranger Things Custom Minifigures Zombie Evolution Art Print (who wouldn’t)

What’s in the Pipeline

  • Dylan is creating graphics for custom and internal customers.
  • Sydney is creating custom eLearning courses.
  • Ben is working on custom projects.
  • Jan is working on CA course components and eLearning QA.
  • Carol is editing new courses and writing blogs.

Tech Topics

znanja update:

  • Improve print styles of notes from the Notes section in the sidebar. The  list of pages, buttons, and the lined paper styles are now hidden when printing.
  • When printing any page containing links, the URL of the link would  appear after the link text (e.g., “​Velsoft​” would be printed as “Velsoft  (https://www.velsoft.com)”) which often leads to poor printing results.  This has been removed.
  • The notes/bookmark toolbar is now hidden when printing pages in a  course.
  • Performance improvements relating to notes and notifications, particularly on  slow connections.
  • Fixed certificates being cut off when downloaded or printed.
  • Fixed course branding body font size affecting the position and spacing of the  notes/bookmark toolbar. A larger font size would move the toolbar and  increase the space between the icons.
