Before everyone else sees it, here is your first opportunity to learn and to test drive the 'IBM BYPASS2000 for AS/400'. This is a conversion tool which uses program-understanding-technology to locate and change areas of an application (written in RPG or COBOL) that need to be changed to accommodate four-digit years. Once completed, the program’s source and data files can be recompiled and tested to ensure the application continues to execute as required.
IBM is running 2 Beta Programs on BYPASS2000 in-house in the Toronto Laboratory. Participants will have free access to all necessary tools, software, hardware and technical support. The duration is 4 weeks each. The RPG session has already been completed at print date, but there is still room in the COBOL session: 05/19 - 06/13. For further details please call Joe Chang at IBM Toronto Laboratory. Phone: (416)448-2768 Fax: (416)448-4414 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are seeking special individuals to serve as volunteers for TUG. Some volunteers fulfill vital executive roles, such as Treasurer and Secretary, or chair committees such as Membership, Marketing, Social, Facilities, Speakers, and Education. Others don’t have as much time to devote to TUG, but help out with smaller projects. Whether you want to work a lot, or just a little -- there could be a place for you with TUG. Give it some serious thought, then give us a call. You’ll be glad you did!
