I now know what time it is and apparently mainframes aren’t going away.

Looks like the mainframe is not dead yet. Mainframes aren’t going away.

Seems some companies know what to do with their technology. For instance, if a company had a mainframe they could have moved a large retail application to it. Or perhaps install an ERP system. Of course they could just spin up a ton of servers running windows.

I finished the Great Courses Story Telling course today. I can now move on to the Electronics course.

I also finished the clock kit I was building.

  1. Congrats on the clock! …and your MF suggested-uses make a little too much sense. The article talks about how MF’s are “resiliant”, “tough”, & “have built-in redundancy” — and that “The approach should be to look at it from a business, technical, and financial perspective — not just a financial, total-cost-of-acquisition perspective”.
    Why would anyone need any of that?

  2. Well, I think they would have to have an understanding of the existing systems, but hey why not implement a new “legacy” that you pay the full cost over and over every 5 years. Yoda was right “Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will.”
