Regular readers of this post will have noticed the masthead  changing.
I thought it appropriate to replace the zEC12 (and zBX) graphic with the new z13. I’ve also taken the opportunity to weave in a little gag. The blog’s title remains “Mainframe Performance Topics” but you’ll see I’ve injected a couple of commas in the masthead.
These commas make all the difference to the blog’s prospectus but absolutely none to its content. If that’s unclear Venn 🙂 this might help:
As (perhaps non-existent 🙂 ) regular readers know, I write about all sorts of things. I’m not particularly motivated to assert breadth of interest; I’m more interested in writing about what I want to.
In fact it’s not very broad: It’s mostly technically geeky stuff, rather than philosophy or politics. There are places for those (and I use them) but an IBM-provided platform is not the place for them.
I’ve always written about:
- Mainframe stuff,
- Performance, and
And now I guess I have to defend my use of the “Oxford Comma”. 🙂 In fact in the graphic it’s more a “Comma Splice”. And now I’m burbling on about commas. So perhaps I do have Commatosis. 🙂
Seriously, I’ve a platform here for writing about whatever technical topics I want. With no constraints imposed on me.
And nobody’s yet said “what on earth are you writing about that for?”
So I’m going to keep writing – and the masthead graphic is perhaps a little more honest.
So I hope you like the new graphic. And enjoy the content.
