Back in 97, we did an install of one of the 436 machines at a hotel in Vegas to replace a System 38 and a System 36 and an old 3741 key to disk machine they still used.

The cost of the upgrade was going to be absorbed by cooling savings alone.

When trying to decide which machine to turn off first, I logged on to the System 38 and it decided to crash the system when I did the power down.

That was the first system to go.

Fortunately they were only using it as a glorified disk reader 😊

BTW: I fell in love with QuikTrip Orange Juice Slushies this summer when in St Louis.

subject: System/38 still up, running production workload

I was stunned to learn that a System/38 is still up, running a production workload, according to a person having direct knowledge of it.
Hi client would like to migrate the application to a more modern platform.
