I started in the IT field in March 1963 using a 402 accounting machine and
an IBM 1620 computer.

I have gone thru the 1400 series, 360, 370, Honeywells, and finally settled
on an IBM System/38 model 5 in the fall of 1981 and have been on that
platform every since.

As of March 25, 2011, I am no longer working full time. My company has hired
a person to replace me and I will have the privilege of getting him
acquainted with my customer. In the mean time I will be working on an as
needed basis.

As soon as everyone is comfortable, I am putting a stop box in the flowchart
of my career. I am happy that I will be retiring but yet have a tinge of
jealousy of all the younger people. I have seen great changes come and go in
my career. I believe the greatest changes are yet to come. All I have to do
is compare the 360 hardware/software upgrades versus the changes we are now
seeing in Power platform.

Thanks to all of you, especially to my friend Al Barsa for all the help that
I have received from this group. It has been priceless.

Take care and may God bless.
