Bruce Do you by any chance mean 3370's (as in disk drives) ? I thought they were reliable enough if you checked them every day and gave them tender loving care :) About once every 3 or 6 months the IBM engineer would come around and do a HDA replacement on whatever was the latest disk that was showing signs of wear and tear :) I did only one system reload in 7 or so years due to a 3370 crashing but I did 4 in a year due to the so called smarter 9332 model 600. Ah those were the days when I thought raid was a flyspray :) Cheers Evan Harris > >My recollections: > > > >Considering that the architecture has survived, yea thrived, for 22+ years, > >AS/400 can wear its "legacy" badge with honor and pride.
