Maybe that is what we should all do. Retire from the AS/400, then reapply
for an i5/OS job. That would show our true colors, skills and

Subject: A Fun Ride
Well, guys, it has been a fun ride. After 43 1/2 years in this business
will be retiring effective Saturday. It seems like I have done it all,but
based on those recent Historical topics I know many of you have donemore.
I did very much enjoy those timely posts. I've gone from the IBM (ofdone
course) 7080, 1401, S/360, S/370, S/390, 4341, 4381, 4391, 3083's 3081's
to finally arriving at the AS/400. I did old DOS, VS1, MVS, etc. before
finally arriving at OS/400.
As we all know the AS/400 is the best of all systems! It's easier to
administer, very forgiving and can do anything you want - (I've even
CICS on a 400). It really is too bad that IBM has not done more withthe
promoting this system and making it the ultimate IT system that it has
capability to be.questions.
Thanks to you all for your helpful information and responses to
Also, thanks to the Domino Lotus Notes folks as I am also the Noteson
administrator here. Believe it or not after 7 + years of running Notes
the AS/400, my organization is going to switch back to Windows!work
Recently I read a quote that if you like what you do, you will never
a day in your life. That comes close for us in IT, our work is neverhas
boring, always exciting with new things to do every day. As I said it
been fun and I almost hate to see it end, but one should get on withother
things while you can.
