No, but I wrote my first screen handler for the AS/400 on a B30
back in 1989. I have here in front of me my log book from that
time. I did a timing test of building/displaying a screen (worst
case - full of fields and data). My log book entry for 1989/4/20
says 46msec. On the 150, that same screen takes only 1.35msec,
so there has been *some* progress. I would hate to have that
go back up to 100msec as Joe seems to get for generating
HTML. How can you support several hundred users with
100msec CPU time per screen?
