French Police save MILLION of EUROs with Ubuntu Linux

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

Now the French are not liked globally for whatever reason you like. I for one think it's a fine country with some odd politics. Love or hate them the Linux community is absolutely in love with them right now. The French Police have moved to using Linux and are saving huge amounts of EURO...

IBM Discount Bin

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

I am always looking to save money. I am an Apple owner and have been, yet I have never purchased a new Mac from Apple. I always go to the discount bin. Most people who are all glazed over about buying an Apple don't look down the page to see there is a discount bin at Apple. Link ::

When ECONOMY cost more

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

I was playing on IBMs site, configuring an Intel Server and found a choice that seemed odd. The ECONOMY PACKAGE on the 1U Intel Server I was looking at drove the price up $184 vs. the BASE Hardware? [caption id="attachment_321" align="alignleft" width="401" caption="The Economy Package should...

Down Economy & I still can’t order anything from IBM

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

The world is a buzz with talk from Economist about the sour economy. Everyone has a opinion on what we should do and yet you don't see many CEO's talking what to do? I find that bit hard to pathom. I think every CEO should be telling the world how they plan to increase sales, or at least rub the...

All is Quiet at IBM weeks before COMMON

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

IBM gets tight lipped this time of year and they don't share much along the lines or "NEW" POWER based technology. This would explain why I am not blogging much. So I am putting out the word, to all companies who are not IBM and are in the POWER platform market. If you want me to review your...

Do you want the bad news or the good news first?

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

I am not one to harp on the bad, I like to see the upside in things. My mother always told me if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Things are not so bad after all

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

While the economy is a sore shape and the new President not saying anything that could help it, I think it's my job as the gran poobah of the IBM i to make sure some good news comes out of all of this. I know that there are companies out there who are growing, they are spending and making heavy...
