Going to the darkside!

    Dear list folks,

    It is my sad duty to report that I am leaving the IDMS world.

    VF Corporation outsourced its entire database administration
    operation on December 31, 2007 (Happy New Year!). We knew it was
    coming, but hung on expecting an option with the outsourcer, IBM
    Global Services. The option never materialized, so, effective July
    21, I have a new DBA slot doing <cough, hack> DB2 UDB at Comdata/
    Stored Value Solutions in Louisville, KY.

    It has been my great pleasure and honor to be associated with this
    wonderful product since 1980 and the IUA for nearly that long, but,
    as they say, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

    Be well, my friends. It has been fun for a very long time.

    P.S. For Chris Hoelscher (and anyone else in the area), starting in
    mid-August, my office will be at Oxmoor Center. Drop me an e-mail
    with contact information and we'll try to do lunch.

    "Cheer up Alan, working with DB2 is like hanging... you get used to it
    after a while. :-)

    Re: Causes of a DC273912 Message
    "Thanks to all. We have DYN for development and NODYN for production.
    When we are ready for the test we will change the programs to NODYN add
    the V 2 run the tests and then switch back to NODYN.

    I knew that I would get the answer by asking the list.

    Great.
