Chris,

I've spent the past five years as an IBM apologist -- trying to implement
AS/400 systems in a VMS Ingres shop that wanted Unix and Oracle.  When I
leave here I'm gonna be a shepherd.  The only hardware I'll need is a crook
and my only software will be a dog.

Happy New Year.

-Jim

Jim, I think it is unfair to throw common sense and real world
experience into the fray. You keep that up, and you'll just be an "IBM
apologist."

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one
that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7
