Hope they have a big empty UNIX box sitting around waiting for someone to use
it, ERP software that can replicate the functionality of your JDE, a large
training staff, the money to replace any twinax you may still be running, and
30+ developers that don't have anything better to do for the next 6-9 months.
Oh wait, Christmas is _OVER_ ;-)...

Good Luck!
