ColeSoft Marketing will soon MOVE from the Afton location to downtown Charlottesville, VA. The move will begin on July 15th, 2013 and will be complete a few days later. During the transition period, our e-mail addresses will still work, but we do anticipate some “glitches” in porting our existing phone numbers to the new location. In the meantime, if you need to reach us and have any problems, please contact Bob Shimizu at (800) XDC-5150 and he will help you. Thanks for your patience with us during this transition.

September 2012

Bob Shimizu (that’s me) wants to announce a BRAND NEW version of the z/XDC Quick Reference.  This new version is intended to be relevant to z/XDC Release z1.6 through z2.0.  It includes all the new commands added since the last edition some years ago AND information on our new c/XDC product.  You can download it under the Documentation tab for z/XDC Release z1.13 and later versions.

The Quick Reference will be produced in two formats, as a free, download-able .pdf format and as a for-cost printed hard-copy booklet.  The hard-copy booklet may become available in a few more weeks.  For now, you can download the free copy and have a handy new reference for our z/XDC and c/XDC products.

  • Bob Shimizu undertakes a re-write of the ColeSoft website, using WordPress.  After some initial grousing (“I can do all this work with templates!”), the work progresses.  A hushed expectation falls over the z/XDC User community.  A period of steady growth and genial prosperity ensues.
