Re: Updating files from the web

"but I am regularly running into people who are fighting to keep
their iSeries systems alive in the realm of 30-something CIO's who want to
dump the iSeries because of the green screen.  While this is not really a
good business move"

Great discussion chaps,

The thing is my colleague knows ASP rather well so that is what we are
using, we are taking all the points about security on board, but our main
problem is of course trying to put numeric data across to the iSeries. It
seems that this cannot be done so we will do the alpha load and convert
thing. Thanks for your time.  :-)

Eduard, I will be changing my place of work very soon (not my choice tho'
unfortunately :-( ) and Amsterdam is nowhere near as bad as London, traffic
wise, although the way that most Dutch persons seem to drive I think they
went to the Kamikaze school of motoring :-)

So I am looking for a job, anyone know of any contracts in BC or Alberta
perhaps?  :-)

Steve
