Boring IBM i Week

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

I have not posted anything this week as I think it’s been a pretty boring week in IBM i land. So while other IBM I news people have the inside scoop and time to call every vendor I am all alone digging for scraps of really meaningless information about the IBM i.


There is a set of articles coming from me to be posted on about Linux. You can find all kinds of information about Linux and how to get started in Linux, but I was writing it for the IBM i people out there. I wanted to give you a quick and dirty on getting started with Linux on POWER.


The IBM i or AS/400 birthday party has come and gone. IBM didn’t invite yours truly and I still to this day don’t know why.


System i Network recently posted an article in the monthly magazine about being an i evangelist and didn’t mention me either. They did however mention Trevor Perry, but you can’t not talk able being an evangelist and not mention him. I would have thought the same went for me, but since I have in the past been very vocal with the System i Network magazine I think they still, or at least it the only way I can explain it, hold a grudge about me criticizing their publication.


To set the record straight, I think the System i Network is by far the best thing in print right now. The have a great staff and great writers. They have turned the magazine around, the web site and a huge, never-ending supply of IBM I and now POWER information and I think they are poised to be apart of the larger POWER community that is coming. Good Luck to the System I News and Penton Media!


I will find something to post about I promise.
