RE: What do you tell folks you work on?



fixed

We're not even one of the newer iSeries, so technically, I still code on
an AS/400.

As I understood it, I still program on an iSeries. We're not on one of
the
new i5 machines. Even when we do get there, isn't that still a subset of
the
iSeries line?

What do you tell folks you work on?

I need to print some business cards and I used to have "Programming for
the
iSeries" on the card.  But that isn't the name anymore is it?

What are others saying in their resumes, interviews, and correspondence?

By using "AS/400" one is clear but perhaps dating oneself; displaying an
attitude of stubborness and unwillingness to move forward?  By saying 
iSeries" one is apparently just plain wrong.  By saying "ieis 5" or what
ever is the new moniker one starts to look nerdy.

It would be helpful to me to read the comments of others.  What say you?
