Rob's blog

AIXchange is meant to be an exchange of tips, ideas, and information around IBM's Power systems and AIX operating system. Although Rob tries to exclusively write about these topics, now and again you will find him reminiscing about computing environments from twenty years ago, along with observations on tools and techniques that are useful for system administrators.
