Fare thee well, Dave. I hope you enjoy a healthy, lengthy retirement

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.
