Agree. | Refusing, even when given good reason, to even | temporarily lower your QRSTFRCCVN below, say, 5, will not guarantee you | that nobody will be able to sneak malware onto your AS/400; As I'm gathering. (Problems with 52 *AUTL?!?) | it will only | guarantee that there's an awful lot of really good software you'll never | be able to install. Money, or lack thereof, takes care of that already. | I've said it before and I'll say it again: QuestView's compatibility | with every release of OS/400 from V2R3 through V5R3, and its ability to | take advantage of the more advanced releases, while degrading gracefully | when run on a system that can't provide all the services it uses, is a | matter of pride for us. There seem to be a LOT of 400 vendors/suppliers of what-all that take a LOT of pride in what they do/say. | Personally, I've never once patched a *PGM to system state; I've chosen | to keep myself ignorant of anything beyond the most basic theory of how | it's done, because I'm not in the business of circumventing security. Likewise. Don't know that I can maintain that attitude forever, necessarily. | -- | James H. H.
