if you check the IDMS-L archives, you will find the original
contribution from one of the originations of IDMS. - or you can go back
through your old CONNECTIONS magazines (you saved them, didnt
you?) and an edited version is in one of the issues
but to save time, i wanted to point out (what I believe to be) a
descrepency between the original post (in 1998 by Peter Karasz) and the
amalgam of posts that made it to the idmssql article

at no time did BFGCC buy the rights to IDS nor rename it IDMS for use on
IBM mainframes - IDMS was written from scratch - based on an
understanding of the concepts of a working DBMS (and general coding
concepts from IDS)

"> the man who approves his own e-mail and
good on him for it -
it's an American thing - during the 1990's political campaign ads got
really negative and downright nasty (not that there is anything wrong
with that) - and the candidate would sometimes claim that the (nasty)
ad was put out by their campaign staff without their (the
candidate's) knowledge or approval. So as a gimmick <?> candidates
began to endorse their own political campaign ads with a short clip
""this is ****** and I approved this ad"". Never one to pass up a good
gimmick (passing myself off as an IDMS DBA has been my longest
running), I adopted this self-endorsement for all my contentious and
otherwise inane posts to this (and, yes, other) lists.

"Here I am, stuck at the office working on an abend of our nightly batch
process
-Couldn't signon from home (about 11:30pm our time)
-Couldn't use the van to drive to work (tranny broke today, second time)
-Had to pump up one of the tires on my car which has a slow leek (manual
pump)
-Had to wait in line at the gas station (shortage in the Toronto area)
-once here at the building, had to convince security that I was in to
fix a ""computer"" problem and not to blow the building up
-Our operations support has gone global this week, new phone system,
trying to reach operations to have them restart the job is like trying
to solve a Rubik's cube

Needless to say, I was not in the best of moods, had a bit of break time
so thought I'd check the emails, best laugh I've had all day

Thanks Chris, keep 'em coming..
