It's not the years, Bryan. It's the mileage. I'm up over a million at this

Congratulations, you've earned it. If I spend 45 years in
I.T./Engineering, I'll be 86 when I retire.

I will be retiring from Certco on April 29,2011 after 15 years working
on iSeries & VM & VSE .
My career started with IBM in 1966 as a CE (right out of college) in
Hartford,CT, moved on to Poughkeepsie in Tech Pubs and then to Rockford,
IL in 1976 as an SE.
Took the buy out in 1993 (retired from IBM in 1996).
Came here in 1996 while they were still using punch cards and back level
Put the first AS/400 (Model 600 in 14 years ago) and now have 8203-E4A
(production) and a 9406-520 (HA-Mimix).
They are now working on converting of the Mainframe to Navision
(Microsoft) . The project has been going for 6 years now.
The iSeries will be staying for a while, all the warehousing and buying
run on it.
Hate to miss the Common Conference this year. They have all been lots of
fun and educational.
I will miss all the friends I made over the last 45 years
