may have just enough time to register for the fall COMMON conference
in Chicago, Illinois. The five full days of AS/400 and System
3/X education start on Monday, September 11, 1995; and continue
through Friday, September 15, 1995. If you have never experienced
the excitement of this top drawer conference -- now may be the
right time! Call the TUG office for more information.
The TUG Board of Directors would like to extend a
warm welcome to Mr. Darcy Forde, of Westburne Industrial Enterprises.
(Darcy was appointed to theboard to complete the remaining year
of Thibault Dambrine's tenure, and will stand for re-election
next June.) We are glad to have such an energetic and dedicated
volunteer on our team, and wish him a long and rewarding relationship
with the user group.
The person in the picture with Sam Johnston the last issue of this newsletter was not Dale Fisher, but was in fact the "son of Sam" -- Randy Johnston. Once again we messed up with our photo caption. (they do look alike -- don't you think?) ...our apologies.
Keep them letters comin' -- folks.
The editor would like to thank all of the contributors
for helping to make this newsletter such a success. It is your
insightful articles which make the newsletter relevant and interesting
to our readers. Circulation is nearing the 2,000 mark, and advertising
sales are robust. We are always looking for fresh material, though.
So readers -- if you have ever thought of sharing a bit of your
AS/400 expertise, we would love to hear from you. Send your manuscript
to the TUG office or to Vaughn, and we will endeavor to get your
message out to the mid range public.
