Just in case you haven't seen the news yet.  IBM have (partially) pulled the
plug on the Easy400 web site - home of CGIDEV2.

Giovanni is continuing the tutorials, and distribution of all the other
utilities from his new site (www.easy400.net) but IBM have apparently
refused to allow him to distribute CGIDEV2.  Goodness knows why.  The
license statement on the web site clearly says you can distribute derivative
works but ... they say no.

On IBM's own site the download is still available, but it is clearly marked
as "frozen".

Not a good day for the future of the iSeries.  If some idiot at IBM thinks
this will make scores of people rush to WebSphere - well boy are they in for
a shock!  Just sit back now and wait for ASNA's advertisements pointing out
to people that IBM is obviously abandoning RPGers.
