Once you C# you never go back.

With it being open source I don't think you can say it's the dark side anymore. Especially when it runs everywhere now (Linux, MacOS, etc).

After 25 years of working on this great platform, today is my last full time day as a programmer/sysop on the IBM i. I'll still do some contract programming projects, but starting January 3rd my full time job will be writing python and C# programs for Windows. I am extremely thankful to David for hosting these lists as well as the associated sites like The ability to interact with the people who actually wrote the tools we use, as well as some of the most innovative users of the tools/platform is a tremendous resource and has made my day to day job much easier. I didn't want to just fade away without at least thanking all of you who have contributed the questions and answers here over the years. I would list names, but I'm sure I'd forget someone.

I have a few things that someone may be interested in. If any of the below appeals to you, send me a private email with what you want and if no one else has asked for it, I'll get your mailing address and send it on to you. Images below as well as a list.
