>:(   Yes..you mean those IBM servers that don't get viruses, don't get hacked, reliability off the charts, easy to use and administrate, and in most Fortune 500 companies chugging away silently running back end applications? ;D

Wow. Neat to hear of other connie-riding iSeries (400) users...

I tell my Windows server loving friends much the same thing (as your quote above) whenever I can...    :stirpot:

I've been on IBM iSeries since they were called A/S 400's.  36's and 38's before that.   I started on a model A30, and worked on just about every model and size since...   Got a baby 400 (c10) in a closet somewhere here... 

Storage?  It's much better now than it used to be - we've come a long ways...

We're in the middle of an HA (high availability) project right now.  Again.  We discovered that if you pour 4000 gallons of water ran over - and through - iSeries racks, it messes things up a little bit. Who knew?  Thank God for H(igh) A(vailability) systems...

Not really a user..  I help technically sell, configure, and do post sales support.  Worked for IBM for 23 years as a fix it guy, then Systems Engineer...  Well, I take some of that back.  I worked for a company out of Gaithersburg, MD for a little over a year as an administrator but I went back to IBM (big mistake)...

Sometimes I can't wait until the sex drive goes away.   ???

Then I can just enjoy riding without complications.   ;)

I work out of my home office for the most part.  I decided to put in one of those switches that senses motion so that it would turn off when I wasn't in the room.  What really drives me crazy is that it turns off while I'm in the office.  Have to wave my hands to make it come back on, yet if I walk out of it and don't go back in (no motion) it stays on and won't go off.  This, of course, drives me crazy.

So that what turns off, your office or the work being done?    ;)

What makes me crazy and annoyed is paying egregious sums of money to be part of a "special club" where I am then told on numerous occasions how unwelcome I am in said "special club."

Needless to say, they ain't getting any more money from me.

No he can't.  We need either a shrubbery or a Guinness.....and I must say I'm leaning towards a Guinness at the moment.

Before you can have a Guinness you must cut down the largest tree in the forest with a herring.

Nope, very disappointed over that.  I keep looking when the UPS/Fedex trucks come by...but nothing.  :'(

How's about a rose bush? My roomie's ex girlfriend planted this thing next to our garage, and now it's so big the blasted thing is growing everywhere.

I'm sure one o' yon married fellows' wives'd love that.  8)
