Let's face it, the rest of the world is trying to kill the AS/400 (or iSeries). Unless we (the technically knowing) do something to let the non-technical decision makers know that the AS/400 is good, and can run circles around any Windoze platform, then we're in trouble. Someone from a university told me about five years ago, that if you "blink your eyes twice, the 400 would be gone." I'm still waiting for the 2nd blink. >>> "Jim Franz" <email@example.com> 01/24/01 04:20am >>> after the last few days of Microsoft's print/tv ad campaign about 99.999% reliability, I decided to check out the details of the story. At 7am est this morning http://www.microsoft.com/ site was "not available". Anybody know-is it the power, a hack, or did they return to the 94% uptime? BTW- that 99.999 is based on a lot of premium server hardware, and seems to be based only on a few selected customers, not the general population. jim +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
