Re:Farewell

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Apr 28, 2010
As I approach the end of my tenure at Reed Elsevier Technology Services
(a.k.a. LEXIS NEXIS), I can't help but think ""what a long, strange trip
it's been"". 25 years at RETS and 32 doing IDMS database and systems
administration.

I'd like to thank all on this list who have contributed their knowledge
and wisdom over the years making life a bit easier for many of us.

As I embark on retirement in ""the third half of my life"", I will still
try to keep in touch via IDMSVENDOR-L (it's kinda hard to totally let go
:-)).

Farewell.

Re: Farewell
"Hal,

Congratulations on your retirement. I will miss your posts.

While I am not an IDMS 'dinosaur' (I have only been doing this for 13
years) it seems I am a mainframe one. We are replacing our legacy
systems with Oracle based ones so my IDMS days are numbered. :-(

there must be life after Reed Elsevier. I'm not quite ready for the
afterlife just yet.
