I've seen this rumor in a couple of publications.  Unfortunately, old
age has set in and I can't remember where.  I don't recall if the
articles were electronic or print (or both).  At least one of the
articles was in a non-AS/400 publication.  Sorry I can't be of more
help.  Maybe someone else knows where I saw these articles.


Any idea where information on this machine can be found?
