Larry-

You say that like I'm making IBM's financial numbers up. I'm not. Check 'em
out on the Web. Quit being so narrow and think a little about what's going

Every one of these sites have a story about IBM's 4Q99 financials. Most
mention how bad 99 was for the AS/400.

Be sure to not miss Tom Bittman's quotes at NEWS/400.

I don't know why IBM can't ship upgrades. Ask IBM.
