I think Leif is on a south pacific beach sipping drinks, thinking about us.
His maids and butlers are probably reading his emails.  :-) 

It even looks like IBM has another nemesis GOFASTER it is out of Spain. I
saw where that was being used years ago in Europe. I think they have
versions for the latest releases. This does the exact same thing as FAST400,
but they advertise it to get you over the humps. They don't feel like
customer can afford to pay a lot of money for that one or two programs which
cause the 5250 tax to kick in. Since developers eat of systems, it was great
for the broke developer.   

As for the problem.  I had seen a few things similar to that years ago.  It
was when a controller was having problems and wrote invalid data out. The
controller was writing parity errors.    I don't think MI can assess the
parity of the disk, but that is a Leif question and he is sun burnt.

gurus, WHERE ARE YOU?>>

Well since no information was forthcoming one way or the other regarding 
Leif then one is left to speculate that b/c of the court case being settled 
that he is prevented from working on and talking publicly regarding the 
subject of MI, "i" system internals and such.

I guess they figured he was the only source of their woes, we'll see.  I 
find the whole thing rather amusing b/c people were hacking the blocked 
instructions long before Leif, so IBM must have be really hell-bent about 
FAST400.

That said Leif was certainly a great asset to everyone and did volunteer 
tons of his own time.  Through the grapevine I heard he was pusuing other 
academic interests.
