  1. This totally rocks. Now if only Macromedia would support an official release for IBM’s iSeries (one step down from the zSeries), every hope, dream, and wish (well, almost) for ColdFusion would be realized!
    Seriously, I know of two people who have gotten CFMX running on the iSeries, but an *officially* supported version would be very welcomed. You would probably be surprised at the number of CF shops that have iSeries machines and are looking to consolidate just as zSeries shops are.

  2. Hi,
    I’m still trying to get Macromedia to recognize the AS/400, iSeries, i5. Check out this month’s iSeries News. (April 2005) http://www.iseriesnetwork.com/
    I’ve received tons of positive feedback from all over the world. My first article was re-published in Spain and I’ve helped companies in Italy, Switzerland, Canada and the US with CF/iSeries issues. I’d love it if real writers (I kind of suck) like yourselves could enlighten Macromedia to the potential of this market segment.
    My latest CF/iSeries site got over 2 million hits in the first 45 days. Solid as a rock. This combination works!
    Thanks,
    Jeremy
