Customer Newsletter

From 1988 to 2005 we produced a monthly newsletter on the state of the HP server world, as well tips and announcements about our software products.

"It's always such a pleasure to read 'What's Up Doc!' ... there is always at least one snippet to glean from the contents. Keep up the good work."
Gordon Gavin, Cygnus Business Media

We haven't produced the newsletter on a regular basis recently (although we did issue a newsletter in December 2011 and may issue more in the future), mainly because the rate of news items in our industry niche had dimmished greatly and Ron Seybold was doing a good job on industry news at the 3000 Newswire.

HP 3000 Book

HP 3000 Evolution is edited by Bob Green of Robelle, from articles written by Robelle, by The 3000 Newswire, and by experts in the HP 3000 field.

This 300-page book contains the latest information on three important topics:
HP 3000 Tune Up
Migrating a 3000 application.

Chuck Ciesinski of Hughes Network Systems writes:
"I have read the book, "HP3000 Evolution", which I got at HPWorld in Atlanta, and I rank it as a must have for every HP 3000 system manager today and beyond..."

An essential reference for every desk!
