Thanks!  I'm trying to get the message about iSeries out to a wider
audience. Something beyond our "AS/400-iSeries"-specific world. And since
IBM's advertising intention only seems to be to run those mysterious
"blue-bar" ads...which never actually mention a specific product....and
since most folks in the PC world, for which TechRepublic is geared, know
little or nothing about iSeries...I thought this would be a good venue.

TechRepubilc edits the heck out of an article, but they did keep the gist of
the material, so I can't kick.

Keep watching...there's more to come....
