I stand corrected.  As I said, I'm not sufficiently familiar with Ops Nav.

I'm in favor of a small memory footprint, also.  But from what I'm hearing,
Netserver isn't quite up to speed, according to what Scott Klement reports
is available on *nix.  So I dunno about only allowing edit through a share,
from a performance POV, although it sounds good from a security POV.

I stand by the rest of my comments...  We're being told:  "it's my way, or
the highway".  Ops Nav is as slow as a pig stuck in mud, but functionality
is being put in Ops Nav that you can't get to any other way.  (Just like
functionality going into SQL, but not DDS.)  This is bull-hocky.  We're
being told "it's too expensive to do it any other way".  Ya, right...  I
code programs...  Sure wish *I* had the option of telling my user's that
kind of crap...

Here's the litmus test...  Does the Ops Nav team EXCLUSIVELY use Ops Nav to
do all their day-to-day work...?!?  If the answer is "yes", then:

Their liars...  or more likely...
They don't actually manage the systems they work on
They're not familiar enough with Command Entry

I'll get more familiar with Ops Nav...

Will the Ops Nav team get more familiar with how I use a 400?  Will they get
more familiar with CL commands, so get off their "trip" that Ops Nav (or any
GUI!) is the best way to do ALL things...?!?

(BTW, I don't need a recommendation to help out by signing up to assist the
UCD...  Been there, done that...  Never even got so much as a form e-mail,
thanking me for taking the time...  ***I don't have THAT kinda time to
waste, BTW.***)

Thanks for your views.
