PersonalNote(*ON) Woke up with a nasty toothache, have been having problems with a cottin-pickin Carbuncle on my arse and some back pains, and haven't had a decent night's sleep in 5 or 6 years, apparently. PersonalNote(*OFF) I apologize for the phrase "with a brain", which Severely Detracted from the post below. Other 'n that, I believe I've stated the facts of the matter. As well as: $ 40,000,000 for Eclipse $ 50,000,000 for Novell $x,xxx,xxx,xxx for "free" source $ 200,000,000 for retraining IBMers to learn *nix And then I jes KEEP hearing there jes AREN'T enough RESOURCES to enhance DDS, as well as CL... That math don't add, as Donald Knuth could probably explain better than I. | -----Original Message----- | [mailto:midrange-l-bounces+jt=ee.net@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of jt | Mr. Barsa, | | SemanticTone(*SemiFlame) | | ===> Interrupting a "work stoppage" to express the opinion that this is | ENTIRELY reasonable. Can you locate somebody with a brain up in Somers or | Armonk?? | | I'd like to see this opinion passed along to somebody who can actually | understand this stuff *and* DO something constructive, and remind | them I've | already paid these amounts, in advance. Anybody who's paid up to 10X the | going prices for 400 chips and hard drives and memory and such, | (especially | relative to pSeries prices,) has paid-in-advance. As well as those who've | paid the interactive tax. Paid-up-in-full-in-advance. (In fact, I doubt | IBM had to even touch zProfits, and the iDivision profits probably covered | the costs of the new SOA (state-of-art) chip plant in East | Fishkill. That's | my swag.) | | Btw, as far as distribution costs, I understand you can buy an | entire album, | electronically, from iTunes for about $10 retail. So mebbe IBM could farm | that part out if it "costs" much more than that. And although I'd hafta | swag at the True Costs (vs. IBM-internal-bean-counter costs), I understand | the divisor is somewhere between 250,000 and 750,000 in total... That's | what it's been in the past, anyway. | | TIA. | | j
