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.

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.
