What's new on
Dave's MVS web pages
*** Archive 1999 ***

This page is designed to be surfed and not printed. The entries are shown in reverse chronological order.

This is the archive page for 1999 entries of my changes to my MVS web pages.

This page has references that match the structure of the old "Dave's MVS Pages". Links to outside URLs should work.

1999-12-02 Added the SPF editors web page and updated the IBM Main Faq with a link to it.

1999-11-01 I have a huge backlog of work to be done on my pages. Look for a flurry of changes soon. I have links galore. Stay tuned. I wish I had time to Burn all Gifs on my web pages before November 5th.

Renamed "TCP/IP on MVS" page to TCP/IP on IBM mainframes so I could include some information on VM and VSE. Most of the content will be on MVS, the only mainframe O/S I have access to. Well we still have VM and TCP/IP there but they are ancient and will be removed before the Year 2000.

    • Web pages that are in the /MVS directory were changed to use a few concepts recommended by Jacob Nielsen on his useit.com site:
      • A navigation bar was added at the top of the pages to show the reader of the page where he is in the web site. Changes from the USEIT.COM n-bar.
        • I used a different shade of yellow for my n-bar.
        • I also created my own (arrow).
    • Changed copyright dates to 1999.
    • Many of my web pages were changed to use Cascading Style Sheets. My web pages are NOW best viewed with a web browser that conforms to HTML 4. If you are interested in CSS, download my dave1.css file and view the source of this web page. We be stylin'!!
