IBM recently completed the migration of their online documentation from the IBM Knowledge Center to IBM Documentation. The tile based navigation takes a bit of getting used to, but it’s not too bad once you do. But if you’re in a hurry, all of the IBM i documentation starts here.

Paul gave 4 stars to Monkey: A Journey to the West (Paperback)
I picked this up several years ago and, after recently re-watching the TV series, finally got around 6to reading it.
It's a lot of fun.
This is the abridged version of the story and it zips along very entertainingly indeed. This novel captures the beginning and end of the tale and, I strongly suspect, that much of the abridgement has happened with regards the journey itself. That said, we do see several highlights -- some of which were quite familiar -- and the characters of Monkey, Tripitaka, Sandy, Pigsy and the Horse come across very effectively.
This version of the story is fun, funny and well worth a read.

Spring has sprung, COVID infection rates are rising and, in Belgium, the anticipated easing of restrictions has been put on hold. It’s a bit of a stretch, but now seems as good a time as any to turn to Bill McClintock who makes mashups, taking two or more songs from wildly different genres and watching … Continue reading Chemical Warfare (Don’t It Feel Good?) →

In the comments of yesterday’s post, I suggested (slightly flippantly) that if France and Germany didn’t want their AstraZeneca vaccines, they could be used to speed up the vaccination process in Belgium. Great minds think alike. Belgium has asked pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca for the surplus vaccine doses from the countries that have temporarily put the … Continue reading Great Minds →
