One student had this to say, "Suprtool is the fastest data extraction tool I have ever used with many capabilities added through the use of STExport, DBEDIT, and SUPRLINK. The training I received as a report developer allowed me to make a connection to the appropriate database where data could be combined, formatted and massaged in accordance with user specifications."

An Active HP 3000 Universe
Recently, I have noticed a positive level of activity in the MPE universe. People with an interest in the platform have been working on it and acting to keep it supported and practical. A few examples are:
Resource 3000: newsletter and services
3000 Newswire Blog: daily stories
3000-L Mailing Lists: users helping other users
Ecometry Mailing list: lots of HP 3000 action
Software Vendors: helping users, updates, new products, ...
Hewlett-Packard: new patches, CI and network printing enhancements, ...

Patch Analysis Script
Beechglen has an interesting Patch Analysis Script on their web site (link above). It compares your current system's patches to the latest available and provides you with a list of recommended patches to apply. Included with this list will be the text descriptions of each patch so you may review what each one will fix.
I can't tell if they are keeping this up to date for all the latest patches, but it wouldn't surprise me.
The Interex Contributed Library
The 3000 Newswire Blog continues to produce excellent daily articles on the 3000 world. For example:
"... a brief report on the location of programs contributed to the Interex Contributed Software Library (CSL). Links to the CSL went dark when Interex cut off its Web access on July 18, but the programs are safe in the hands of Chuck Shimada, a longtime Interex volunteer and de-facto curator of this collection of HP 3000 utilities."
"Shimada reported that he won't be releasing the entire CSL library for quite some time. Legal rulings over the years have established the group of programs in its entirety as a copyrighted Interex asset, he said. ...
"But anyone can get individual CSL programs from Chuck, if you send him an e-mail (at his personal address) and ask for an individual program. Knowing what to ask for becomes a matter of research if you don't have the full CSL index of programs. The NewsWire's new search feature can help, as can the rest of the 3000 community."
