Re: Ian Miller the VMS King :-)

I feel I'm a pygmy standing on the shoulders of giants. There are lots of more knowledgable people here. I'm just an active participant.

As I've said before I am active here because I learn a lot reading other peoples answers and trying to answer the questions. I've learnt several things this week already.

Asnother reason I am active here is if I can encourage new people to use VMS more then that is a good thing. The VMS community has to stick together and help each other and especially new people to help combat the FUD spread around by the ignorant. For a good example of this go visit

http://www.osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=8744

and see the nonsense being posted in response to a positive article about VMS. Please post some sensible answers.

Re: Ian Miller the VMS King :-)

RE: its a 18x7x16D way of life!

being a vms fanatic is a 24x7x365 way of life

18x7x16D is the same in hex which is a popular way of expressing numbers on VMS systems.

Re: Ian Miller the VMS King :-)

Ian,

Just for kicks:


being a vms fanatic is a 24x7x365 way of life


How am I to read that?

Do you want to specify that after 7 years it is to end?

Or have you mixed up 7x24 with 24x365 ?

... and if you want to show the continuous availability of VMS, you need to specify the quarter year that adds up every four years to feb 29....

So we use: 24 x 365,25

Cheers.

Have one on me.

Re: Ian Miller the VMS King :-)

I wished to show my fanaticism like vms is always there :-)

24hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year except for leap years when its 366. I just abbrivated it a bit and changed the numbers to hex. I din't expect the spanish inquistion :-)
(insert rendition of Monty Python sketch here)

Parhaps I should change it back to
VMS fanatic - it's not just a badge, it's a way of life :-)

but parhaps somepeople would want to know how exactly its a way of life and what colour the badge is :-)

(now back to sensible things like beer :-)
