>> "You don't think this national firm is trying to get more work for itself,
do you?
You don't think they have some idle COBOL programmers around, do you?
You don't think this smells as bad as I think it does, do you?"<<

Believe me - I'm the first in line to doubt the motives of major consulting
houses etc.
        BUT
 as I said in my earlier post, there is a MAJOR shortage of COBOL programmers
world-wide.  If this outfit have got any, they  wouldn't be looking to place
them to this kind of task.  Plenty of money available in the Y2K market.

People - we're talking about a GENERATOR - _Nobobody_ is going to be writing
any COBOL!!!!
