Don't like column separators in iSeries Access when you use yellow or turquoise? Here's how to easily remove them.
Written by Sam Lennon
Column Separators occur automatically when you use yellow or turquoise on a 5250 color terminal. (When was the last time you saw one of those?) iSeries Access faithfully reproduces this behavior, as in Figure 1.
Column Separators have always mildly annoyed me, and I avoided using yellow and turquoise. They annoy me a more now, because I'm maintaining code in which the original developer liked to use yellow. There is no way to change the 5250 data stream, but iSeries Access gives you a preference setting where it is very easy to turn off column separators in a session so that Figure 1 turns into Figure 2.
A new security paradigm for the cloud, PowerSC defines your known "good" system rather than try to defend against a known "bad" threat.

One of the most common requests I receive from customers is a way to provide the management team and auditors with a simple dashboard-type report of a system's configuration and its conformance with a baseline policy. For single systems, this can be a time-consuming task, prone to human error. When there are tens, or even hundreds, of system partitions, the work involved can become prohibitive.
