Frequently, when I post things to comp.os.vms or the HP ITRC site, I add a disclaimer.
It’s not that I have no shame (got plenty already, thanks), but I want people to know that one avenue to solving their problem is by buying CHARON-VAX or CHARON-AXP and migrating their application to it.
Give a 2-year-old a hammer, and everything needs pounding. I have more tools than that. I only recommend it if it makes sense.
