Links, Downloads, and Other Resources

Link to 3000Newswire BlogWe support the 3000Newswire - both print and online editions, and endorse them as the source for the latest news on the 3000 and/or about our community.

link to openmpe.orgWe 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!

Link to 3000-L Archives3000-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.

This website constructed and maintained with CityDesk CMS

Simple to use yet remarkably powerful, this PC based CMS can be used for content driven layout, intranets and extranets, and publishes only updated content - to a specified folder, or via ftp to a server - including date driven include/excludes, built-in photo editing, semi-WSYWIG and HTML editing of pages, system and user defined variables substituted at publication, embedded javascript or php, supports css & it's own 'template' format as well. Did I mention multiple language support and a free evaluation version good enough for many small websites? Oh - and it supports collaborative site maintenance by multiple simultaneous users.  No financial connection here - just a happy customer.  Both this site, and MPE-OpenSource.org were developed and are maintained with CityDesk.

If you'd like to suggest links to other sites with things useful to those still on MPE, or otherwise useful in your business - please feel free to send it along for consideration.
