I haven't been following this thread as closely as I might have, but I
don't think the original poster has chimed in about reasons for this
pushback.

Though I am loathe to support such pushback, I have seen situations
where it may seem to make sense. In particular, a programming farm on
the Asian continent does all the programming work for a particular set
of pharmaceutical companies. These people know RPG/400 to some extent,
and ILE not at all. The company has a position that introoduction of
ILE to that source set introduces a wealth of support issues.
Instantly, the set of individuals who can support a particular change
is reduced until training occurs - and this particular organization has
no desire to retrain. They are able to retain their staff and keep
things interesting by double-teaming their responsibilities. While
Roji may be on the PHP and RPG team, Koko may be on the Java and RPPG
team.

Spray painted punch card wreaths every Christmas.

That's what I thought you were talking about.

Seriously though, I have never seen one or the cards that got
punched.
