SERVICE INTERRUPTION UPDATE – The recent nor’easters that have hit the Boston area have caused a lot of headache here. Power was up and down before being out for several days. Internet connectivity in the area was affected. In my own server room, several pieces of network equipment were fried in the process. Adding to that is the fact that I have been unable to return from out of town due to flight cancellations. As of noon, March 13 (EDT) I would give a 50-50 chance of my flight going out tonight. Best case would be restoration on March 14. More likely March 15. I will update this page as soon as I get the server back on line. Sorry for the inconvenience, but this series of storms has been brutal. Thanks in advance for your patience.
TimeShare400 provides affordable time sharing over the internet on a current model AS/400 (aka eServer iSeries; iSeries; System i; and, just plain “IBM i” for development, educational institutions, additional short term capacity increases and outsourcing. Our AS/400’s are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any PC connected to the internet.
The primary machine is running v7r1. We have other machines available at v5r4, v5r2 and even v4r5. Pricing for these older machines may differ. The v4r5 machine has the ability to compile all the way back to v3r2.
We no longer have any CISC machines. Despite the fact that they were over 20 years old and still worked just fine, they have been sent to the recycler.
Remember the old days of ‘time sharing’ on computers? With the advent of the internet, time sharing makes more sense than ever. Rather than buy and maintain your own AS/400 or iSeries machine, now you can rent time and space at TimeShare400(tm) instead!
This service will be of interest to individual developers who need affordable time share access to an up-to-date AS/400 for creating and compiling their latest projects. It will also be of interest to companies looking to outsource their software development function. If the production machine is bogging down between the production activity and development, move development outside! Some companies may even want to outsource their entire AS/400 environment! Have TimeShare400 run your AS/400 operations entirely! Small companies that want to run AS/400 applications but don’t want to buy a machine can run their applications here!

Our mission is to provide high quality, high availability, affordable service to companies and developers.
