it's not me that's doing it!  it's for a 36 client we kind of inherited, about 4
years ago, that we do maybe a weeks worth of work for a year.

the board decided to go with a p/c solution.  they were totally negative to the
as/400.  however, the staff wanted the as/400, and to migrate their software.

when the office manager called and told me, she asked my opinion.  i don't want
to get into a position of being totally negative, so i told her i
wouldn't/couldn't do it for that, but maybe the programmer does it for a hobby,
and lives with his mother.  or he's independently wealthy, and needs something 
fill his time - who knows?

but if summer comes, and they're stuck with a dud, to give us a call!


ps - it's a small shop, with 4 people.
