Rec’d a “down system” call from an ID

Rec’d a “down system” call from an IDS client via a partner yesterday. They are on 9.4 and no maintenance, etc. Had a blast using my internals stuff to track down their bad data page, and the cause of their grief IDS didn’t throw-up on the assertion oddly enough, but we did get it fixed! #informix

IDS 11.7 Upgrade

A long-time client from about 10 years ago called and had me assist in the upgrade from IDS 10 to IDS 11.7. Went without a hitch! Very excited to start implementing some of the new features – storage provisioning, AUS, new admin tasks, and trusted context. Will be applying these features very soon at another client hopefully as well. #informix
