Where is my Super Suit?

Ok, talk about a panic. A few weeks ago I attend the System i Innovation Award banquet at the COMMON conference. This was a formal affair, suit and tie, but all my suits were pretty old … since I don’t wear them to work (only once or twice a year), there hasn’t been a driving …

Film at 11

The article I mentioned before has been published! It’s in the May issue of IBM Systems Magazine. Since it’s not online (yet?), I’ve scanned it for those of you who do not have a subscription. Not a bad photo, if I do say so myself.

Another Article!

Heh … I’m going to be famous yet again! A few weeks ago I was interviewed by a Neil Tardy of IBM Systems magazine about midrange.com. The interview went well, and I was really pleased with the first draft Neil sent me. Turns out the magazine wanted a photo of me for the article. So, …

Another upgrade

This weekend I’m going to attempt another hardware upgrade. The main mail server for midrange.com (rivendell) is showing it’s age … mind you, it’s still performing fine, but it’s pretty loud and it’s maintenance contract expired last month.

Recognition

There is definitely something to be said for being recognized by people … even if they don’t know your face, knowing your name is enough. At the Spring ’05 Common conference I’ve been recognized by quite a number of people … and it’s quite flattering. My intentions with midrange.com are not to be a glory …

Partnership?

This was a bad weekend

This weekend was supposed to be a nice quiet, calm, time… I had planned to spend it getting some files organized in the two filing cabinets I purchased from MKS (getting rid of old stuff in anticipation of our move to new digs). Friday was the company holiday party … it’s always been enjoyable … …

New Server

I got a new server … it’s a Dell PowerEdge 420SC … I’ve named it Gondor. I originally tried to install Fedora Core 3 on it via NFS mount, booting from a compact flash disk, but it didn’t take. Not sure why. So I burned the CD’s and installed from there. Worked like a champ. …

Mailing list runs afoul of Rolex

As a mailing list operator, I found this item quite interesting … Rolex wants spam removed from list archives. It has come to Rolex’s attention that your company is the Bulletin Board operator for http://lists.freeswan.org. Your Web Page enables the following vendors to advertise and conduct sales of counterfeit and infringing Rolex watches bearing the …

iSeries Blog

I’ve created a new blog … I’m hoping it will provide a place for iSeries folks to share their thoughts in a more ‘journalistic’ sense. Not much activity yet … but I have high hopes. Check it out when you get a chance … http://imho.midrange.com.
