The year end is approaching fast … and now is the time to get those pesky charitable contributions sent in in order to be considered for 2009.

The COMMON Education Foundation’s Al Barsa scholarship is a charity I consider well worth an investment … and I encourage you to send what you can.

midrange.com has just faxed the CEF a contribution for this year. I plan on making it a regular contribution, so long as finances allow it.

While I’m at it … I’d like to wish everyone in the IBM i community the very happiest of holidays and a successful new year.
