with this in mind, I have composed (or did i de-compose) a little ditty :=
=20 an ode to CA-IDMS 14.1

sung to the tune of ""the theme to Mystery Science Theatre 3000""

The idms we know as 14.1
Is going to take a dive

It was in February 1999
14.1 started looking mighty fine=20
It did a great job keeping CVs alive
But now its-a time to be going to release one-five ? (or maybe one-six ..=
)

We sent it cheesy transactions
The worst we could find (la-la-la)
It handled them all with style and grace And almost never 1469

Now keep in mind it can?t control
When COBOL MOViES begin or end (la-la-la) Because it used that special code
To build its helot friends ?.

HELOT ROLL CALL (c?mon, lets go)

ECB 41 (pan left)
178 (hi girls)
204 (what a cool guy)
999 (What a wisecracker)

If you're wondering how IDMS survives,=20 And other DB facts (la-la-la)=20
Then repeat to yourself, ""It's the best Database,=20 I should really just
relax"".=20 For... CA-IDMS 3000 !=20

"Chris,
If you do find something better to do then the whole IDMS community would
have lost.
Cheers,
