In Progress Recording Studio
|Being a musician I have long been attracted to the idea of
recording. With the digital technology available today
it is possible to finally realize the goal of my own recording
studio. As my experience and available equipment grows I
have found this to truly be a constant "Work In
Progress." I had the privilege of working with my
friends, Gray Fox Bluegrass, to help them record their first
CD. Visit the Work In Progress page for more
information about my studio and my recording projects.
|Herd Rock Ranch is my home in the East Texas Piney
Woods. You can see some pictures of the cows and
bulls. You can even send email to the cows. If
they are in a good moooooood they might even respond.
The bulls do not read their email so do not bother sending any
Computing - MVS 3.8
|Way back in the 1970's I had the great opportunity be
involved in computing. At that time there was no such
thing as a personal computer. It was all "Big
Iron", mainframe systems that took up whole rooms.
I have been fortunate to have worked directly with various IBM
360 and 370 systems of different sizes and capabilities.
These systems ran various operating systems including DOS,
DOS/VSE, VS1, MFT, MVT, SVS and the all time greatest, MVS.
Of all the operating systems I have used, I think that MVS
3.8 was the greatest. It was a very powerful system that
would run on a modest size mainframe. Over the years MVS
has been improved, expanded, and renamed but for me 3.8 was
Now I am once again running MVS 3.8 but this time in a
window on my Windows laptop system. This amazing feat is
accomplished through a free software package called Hercules.
My MVS 3.8 WEB Page has documentation for the MVS 3.8
SYS1.PARMLIB parameters that are used to configure MVS.
In addition I have documented the JES2 commands.
