%DCL-W-REMINDER, Andy, remember to turn off the lights when you leave...

I have one, but it's personal.

My first guess would be Andy Goldstein, but hopefully others can confirm this.

 

There are a number of these types of "error" messages still in the code.  Have fun finding them...

The lights have been turned off in ZKO (Nashua, NH) about 7 years ago.

Definitely Andy Goldstein.

Re: Who is Andy, and did he remember?

This thread makes me sad, for three reasons:

 

1)  It reminds me that ZKO is gone

 

2)  That there are people who don't immediately associate VMS and names like "Andy" with people like Andy Goldstein

 

3)  My V8.3 installation returns the wrong thing

I miss my VMS servers and my pointy hat I once had.

It's AIX now. It's not the same.
