Just like when we left quite a bit of old hardware behind before, we will do
it again. I have to upgrade the tape sleds in my 3573 but big deal; I
needed to do that anyway. Most of that stuff should have been dead long ago

As to the links, don't get to hard on the Power Systems folks, they don't
control all of that. As to what information is out, give it a bit of time,
it will all get there.

The IBM web sites have been getting more and more unusable as time goes on,
every time they ty to "improve" them. Yesterday DeveloperWorks was a train
wreck. I'm hoping it's better today.

Of course should IBM even have a section in there pointing you to a
worthless website if they list it further down in the Memo to Users?
