Links, Downloads, and Other Resources
We also support OpenMPE and it's mission to advocate for users of MPE/iX based systems. They are the only collective voice remaining, following the collapse of Interex, to help ensure that the tools and information necessary to keep 'em running - is available as long as needed. They've been working quietly behind the scenes for years now. Largely unheralded, they remain a valuable resource for our community. For now, membership is free, so go sign-up!
Check out these web-based tools from 37signals.com:
Basecamp - Project Mgmt, Highrise - Simple CRM, Backpack - WorkGroup / Extranet / Wiki, plus a few small tools that are so simple as to be almost 'applets'... We use them in our business, and highly recommend them - as well as their book: Getting Real. <--- read it FREE online!
3000-L Archives, hosted on RAVEN.UTC.EDU: A community resource for all things e3000 / MPEi/X, and then some... Probably the single most interesting mailinglist/newsgroup I've ever followed. The depth and breadth of expertise here (in just about anything - 3000 related or not) - is absolutely amazing.
