Hi, this is my first post. Have been to busy to post, but have a couple of issues that I am trying to solve. I wil post in the appropriate forums. I am a former (retired) mainframe computer programmer/ senior systems analyst and project manager. I got into the field when salaries, benefits and opportunities to advance in knowledge and have free reign to be creative were at an all-time high, and head hunters wooed us as if were superstars. I guess to the users we were. I am an old JCL 360/370 and Amdahl 470 technical person. PCs are much easier, but so much malice exists in the field from hackers with idle time on their hands. I imagine from those whose integrity and moral standards are about at toilet level. Nonetheless, I am glad to be a member. I will be posting. I am from the Windy City. I am old school. We loved to fix problems back in the day and did not mind the long hours when something went wrong and we could not go home until we fixed it. Hope when you see my username in the forums, you will respond to my calls for info or help if you can. Thanks. Anybody out there from I.I.T. 1970-1973, Signode 1973-1976, Time Life Magazine 1971-73?
