Merry Christmas.

It's Christmas Eve, about 10 PM ET dinner is over, folks have gone home, my
kids are in bed, but hardly asleep (although attempting the best faking job
in the world), and I get beeped by a customer, with a problem bad enough so
that I have to go into the office.  Just remember "user" is a four letter
word.  (So, you ask, why don't I have the Internet and AS/400 access at
home, and the simple answer is that I want to insure that my wife is the
most exciting thing at home.)

So, I'm here, IPLing the AS/400 (it still does take a whole seven minutes
[V4R*]), so I'm checking e-mail in the meantime.

So this is my moment to wish Merry Christmas to all my AS/400 friends, on
midrange-l, and those that I have bcc:'ed.  To those users who I get to
help during the year, it's a privilege and a honor.  To the IBMers who
(usually) like what I say, well I (usually) like what you say (and I let
you know if I don't).  To the IBMers whose blood pressure that I raise,
well you probably deserved to have it (a little bit) raised.

Just remember, there are two types of computers in the world.  AS/400's and
inferior computers.  BTW, this fourth quarter, IBM customers let Rochester
know this in a big way.

Merry Christmas to all.  I hope that none of you read this message before
Friday, and hopefully not until Monday.


PS:  If you get this message a few times, I'm sorry.  IPL is almost
finished, and I still have to move some packages from the attic to a tree.
