Some time ago, a friend of mine named Kris Buytaert (of devops fame) asked me if I was interested in an old and somewhat big AS/400. And, guess what, I was! Just last Saturday I took our van and went for a drive to the region of Antwerp. There, in a cellar, stood this big old machine. The only challenge was, there was a short flight of stairs we should go up with this system. And men, let me tell you, it was maybe all in all 5 or 6 steps, but the system was quite heavy. Finally we found a piece of wooden board so we could improvise a ramp of sorts.
Together with a lot of moaning and sweat we managed to get the system back to ground level. From there it was easy since there were wheels underneath the system.
So, here we are, wit a very nice big old AS/400 that we can start showing of at exhibitions. I didn’t have time yet to gather some specs about it. That has to wait until after the summer holidays.
Signing off, one very happy (new) owner.
