Did you click the AS400 magic box  link? It leads you to a page with a
picture of little girls dancing in a circle around an AS/400, along with
text that's almost as useful as the picture. This pair of pages is probably
one of the least professional looking adverts I've seen. Does IBM have any
ad people at all? These guys are about as artsy as I am.
