| 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.
