New crowned head - John Gillings

Hail the new King!

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/publicProfile.do?userId=CA1001086&forumId=1

And look at that profile:

NO questions, ONLY answers.
And PURE VMS.

All issues he considers worthy of answering hit the heart of VMS. I have learned SO much from his contributions!

John,

if ever congrats were deserved, it is NOW!

Time to celebrate.

Proost.

Have one on me.

Congratulations John!

I suppose even VMS wizards from way back have to earn their points just like the rest of us here on the forums ;-)

Glad to have you participating here.

Thanks for all you do to keep VMS healthy and growing.

Re: New crowned head - John Gillings

Thanks guys,

Unlike many of you, answering OpenVMS questions is my job. However, participation in this forum isn't really in my job description - indeed, in some ways it's perceived as competition. If people can get answers from me here, why would they pay for a service contract?

Don't forget... "Free advice is worth every cent".

So, it's a fine balance. To keep it up, I need to be able to demonstrate to management that it's worthwhile, and doesn't interfere with my "real" job. Bigger hats are quite effective at that ;-)

Hi John,

congratulations on your new hat. Concerning the matter of competition: It is the same for the whole forum. In some way, HP may lose business because of that. On the other hand it is a great advertisement for HP.
