Ibm-main is 31!

Been quite a ride. Kudos to Darren for tending us this long and all the
developers and coders who have helped us travel the Maze of MVS. I know I
learned a lot and saved me countless hours digging thru control blocks and
reading the manuals-TNL's and all. Salud!

How long before it outgrows 31 and needs to be made 64?

How long before it [IBM-MAIN] outgrows 31 and needs to be made 64?
My friend, I've got a Full Word to say to you, you'll have to Wait a long Time, Bit by Bit, Byte by Byte...

... perhaps before you get Swapped out to Bit Bucket unless you get TIME=1440 ...

Sorry, but today I'm not giving any apology for my and zMan's word play... <evil grin>

Ok, I'm Paging out to my Scheduled Job ...

Groete / Greetings
Elardus Engelbrecht

Ugh. At first look I thought that was to be about retirement.

31 years? Like, there might be an archive of this group going back to
1986? I ask, because such an archive could be interesting to read if
someone preferred to relax oneself while reading such a bunch of ugly,
full of uninteligible mumbojumboshortnames messages relating
pecularities of old (by today's standards) operating systems on their
old (by today's standards) hosting hardware.

Yes, I guess it shows my depravity[1] that I even consider looking at
such an archive. But I suspect there is no such archive, isn't it? I
mean, somewhat accessible from the net, via ftp or gopher, maybe?

[1] Not only I am depraved[2], I even have a keen interest in old (so
called classic) computing stuff. In case anybody wonders why, I find
it to be good motivator for learning about multitude of things. So
far, I only had time for reading (and not very much, broad or deep),
but I have not touched old system in the last twenty years or so (and
that was middle-aged system at that particular time) so I guess it
must be love or maybe even a hobby?

[2] I know, I know, Friday is a day for such topics.

Oh wait. It looks like the is such a thing. I have helped myself, by
