Ah, our old store systems.

As I recall, and I can, of course, be wrong, these systems were pretty
minimal machines.  I believe they were RISC running V3R7M0.  They probably
have between two and four gigabytes of DASD and not much memory.  They were
connected to a satellite based network if that means anything to you.

If they still have the IBM software, they have no development tools
(compilers, query/400, etc).  Some may have SQL.

That's about all I remember.  Hope it helps.

They were acquired (by a client of mine) at a bancruptcy auction by
Heilig Meyers furniture company.
