Artistic Style 1.23 released:   Artistic Style 1.23 has been released, and I have ported it OpenVMS. Artistic Style is a source code indenter, formatter, and beautifier for the C, C++, C# and Java programming languages, maintained by Jim Pattee. This version updates a lot of the format processing for various of the supported languages to reflect standardization in indent style over the last couple of years. More information, the the release notes, and the links to download the package can be found at the Artistic Style home page. (100 words, 0 comments, 0 pings)

Itanium blades configured at DR site:   Now that the port of the application has gone live, and the migration of the user community is basically in the hands of the Applications Team and management, my focus has changed to updating the disaster recovery plan for the site. Today, I configured two Itanium blades at the disaster recovery site. (442 words, 0 comments, 0 pings)

App goes live:   The ported application went live on the Itaniums yesterday in a limited way. One small part of the company was redirected to the Itaniums I just added to the production cluster, and are running the ported in-house application. (128 words, 0 comments, 0 pings)

Itaniums go live:   Today, I did some major surgery on the production cluster. I've added in a pair of BL860c Integrity blade servers, removed the Alpha quorum node, rebooted the Integrity quorum node, and rebooted all the Alphas in the cluster to adjust their EXPECTED_VOTES value.
