This web page exists to celebrate anyone who has ever worked for Rockwell FirstPoint Contact aka Rockwell Electronic Commerce aka Rockwell Switching Systems aka Rockwell Switching Systems Division (and so on). We wish to continue the spirit of camaraderie enjoyed among the staff of this company across its 30 year history.
This web site -- and associated mailing list -- is about the people, not about the company. This web site is NOT intended to be an area where people discuss or complain about current decisions of this company in any incarnation.
This company now exists as part of Concerto Software, Inc.
The X-Rock mailing list was originally created at the time of a large layoff at Rockwell Electronic Commerce. With a large number of people leaving, we wanted a way to stay in touch with the many friends who were going to other companies, retiring, moving away, or just suddenly looking for another job. We wanted to be able to stay in touch. We wanted to be able to help one another find a new job and share job opportunities with one another. And we wanted to throw a party!
and throw a party we did, in December 2000.
We have a party coming up this fall at the Winterset Banquets at Country Lakes Country Club. The party is on Saturday, October 1st starting at 6:30 pm, and will be held at the following address:
Watch this space for future details.
The old xrock mailing list has been moved to use the "mailman" mailing list software. Now, people can subscribe and unsubscribe without needing human intervention. Mailing list archives are available, but only to list subscribers. To read the mail archives, you need the password that was sent to you when you subscribed to the list.
There is a small (but growing) archive of photos at http://www.xrock.org/gallery. To see the photos, you need to have an account. Members of the xrock list will have an account available for browsing photos. If you want to add photo galleries to this archive, send an EMail to firstname.lastname@example.org and an account will be created for you that has the ability to create photo galleries.
