Mainframe Geeks

The new Mainframe Geek blog by a bunch of IBM mainframe geeks brings back lots of memories. My earlier career was with IBM — in mainframes.

Probably the most exciting time for me was the launch of MVS in 1975 — I was living in Poughkeepsie at the time and we were working with our earliest major customers to try to shoe horn a bloated initial release into mainframes with 3 and 4 megabytes of memory!

As I sit here writing this with 2 GB on my laptop, it’s actually pretty amazing to look back at what was even possible in terms of applications on systems of that era.

Hello! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to
make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird
when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might
be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions,
please share. Thank you!
