I remember that with fondness.  Mine got dog eared then chewed up.
(I used to have snacks in my desk that got raided by vermin who left evidence
of their passage ... mouse droppings & paper chewed up ... curing me of that
habit.)

Here is another idea for folks to think about.

We IT people whether we are on the 400, some mainframe, some other computer
system, there are a lot of system operator functions that have to be done
regardless of the platform, and there are a growing number of installations
where there is more than one platform, with a work force that may know one
platform really well but the others not as well.

Imagine a computer operator saying
"I know how to do an IPL, REORG or whatever on platform-A ... what is the
equivalent command on platform-B?"

I think there might be a need for a similar reference chart that goes across
the major platforms that exist today doing similar functions.  Quite possibly
the folks who are in the business of converting across such platforms ...
such as from mainframe/400/UNIX/NT to (take your pick) mainframe/400/UNIX/NT
already have access to such a reference chart to give their customers who
knew the platform that was old to them but not yet learned the corresponding
commands for the platform that is new to them.
