What do you do when you've bought a lot of junk? You buy even more stuff: you buy shelves to organize your junk. (No, we're not about to have a yard sale. We like our junk. )


This blog post is the shelf for my blog posts and is my chance to properly introduce each series. Blog posts can appear in multiple series.



PI Theory series


Most people gloss over the theory to be able to get to the practical applications sooner. Not me. I believe that if you have a good understanding of the theory, you have an easier time with the practical applications and have a better appreciation for what you're dealing with (in this case, the PI system). In this series, we dive head-first into the "boring" material that was never shown to you. Also, if you want OSIsoft to cover more theory, please vote here.




PI Participation series


PI Square uses points to gamify participation. This series explores the distribution of points and some (sometimes underhanded) ways to increase your participation in the PI community, whether to get more points, increase your reputation, or genuinely add value to the community. Some of these posts may or may not be cringeworthy…




About PI Square series


These are blog posts about PI Square that are not covered by the previous series.




PI Suggestion Compilation series


Each blog post in this series compiles suggestions from OSIsoft's feedback website in a way that the feedback website does not. If there is a certain quality that you are passionate about, such as security or redundancy, then you can vote to your heart's content by having all such suggestions in one place.




PI Suggestion Support series


The blog posts in this series show support for a suggestion on OSIsoft's feedback website. This does not necessarily mean that I think that these suggestions are critical. It just means that there was detailed support that I felt that I could add.




PI Program Overview series


The blog posts in this series look at groups of PI programs.




PI & Excel series


These blog posts show ways to use PI and Excel together.




Not-In-Any-Series series


These blog posts are not in any series… yet.
