Retiring after 43+ years with IBM

Post by Frank Yaeger » Wed May 16, 2012 5:54 am

Just a note to let everyone know I'll be retiring at the end of this month (5/31/2012). I've been with IBM for 43+ years (plus a couple of summers in college) and I've enjoyed my career immensely. I've especially enjoyed being able to help people use the DFSORT/ICETOOL functions I developed, over many years, in new and interesting ways.

Once I retire, I won't be posting solutions any more since I won't have access to a mainframe to test them, and I don't like posting untested solutions. I may lurk a bit or I may not.

I'm looking forward to retirement, but I'll also miss this board.

Thanks to everyone for giving me the chance to earn a living all these years doing something that was a lot of fun for me.

Long live the mainframe, IBM, z/OS, DFSORT and ICETOOL!
