It was actually kind of convincing until it got to the point where it said Amazon was placing an order for 10,000 Emperor IIs. That's a lot of penguin power!

Not sure what you mean... That bit at the bottom where it says
Applicable Countries (and doesn't include Canada)? It seems to be a US
announcement letter, and that list appears to include only countries
in the Americas that don't get their own version of the letter, and
therefore get the US one as a default. Canada has its own
https://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/ShowDoc.wss?docURL=/common/ssi/rep_oc/9/649/ENUS2964-LC9/index.html
as do various countries in Europe, Asia, and so on.

But perhaps I'm missing the joke...

An elaborate one, and it links to real IBM pages.

Rockhopper. Seems to be a z13, spelled without a "z" in order not to scare people.

But how can they use a z with no JCL? A recent thread here suggested that is
nearly impossible.

Sorry, but please educate me (and others too), what is a "CanCon"?

Yes, of course, I Googled it by harassing Uncle G. O. Ogle, but got many hits like "Canadia Contents" amongst other useless hits (pipe-manufacturer 'Can-Con', 'CanCon' restaurants, Canada TV regulations, a French commune, Cancer Control, etc.)

Thanks in advance!

We had a CE that went all in on 9370's and was moved to White Plains support. They got a Sev Crit in Canada and the weather was too bad to
fly so he drove. They impounded his black bag at the border. Fortunately the FRU was just a couple of cards.

Canadian Content usually refers to Canadian content in cultural products. For example, on radio, a certain percentage (which varies through the day) of programming must be composed by or performed by or recorded by Canadian artists. Similarly, a certain amount of television programming on Canadian TV networks must have a Canadian connection. Publishing houses constantly strive to develop Canadian authors. There's also a (usually struggling) Canadian film industry. (Which is independent of the fact that a lot of movies are filmed right here in the Toronto area and in many other parts of Canada.) It goes without saying that our governments obsess about Canadian Content and funding models for it.

Yep, you've got it with some of those. Canadian broadcasters are required to include a minimum amount of "Canadian content" in their programming. The idea is to keep U.S. culture from taking over (good luck with that). Remember Bob&Doug, the Mckenzie Brothers, from Second City? That skit started as a CanCon joke, and become a whole meme (before the term), with an album and movie. CanCon has become sort of a joke in general.



So it made sense to me-as good a reason as any for z13s not to be available up north!

A lot of you will have seen the Amazon and LinuxONE post on mainframedebate.com - Steven Dickens is the owner of this blog and he penned the post and subsequently posted it on his various social channels. His objective was to use humor to advance the benefits of LinuxONE as they relate to scalability and the issues Amazon faced on Prime Day. While the benefits of LinuxONE are real, the 'news' was not...in fact, if you scroll down in the article it says that this was a parody.
The URL below says: *** For those of you who have not realised everything above the line is fake news, a joke. An attempt at parody. None of what is written in the paragraph’s above is true. ***
