Time travel

Perhaps a story in the making....


In 2 years or so my company is purchasing a new computer system for our distributing business. Right now, we have an AIX 5.3 machine and some other servers that I admin. I do not have a college degree. My tech knowledge is mostly experience. I have not studied or read many tech books. I do not know any programming languages or how to design a database.

Not to mention, the commands, interfaces, etc. on IBM i look absolutely nothing like *nix kin and closer to some foreign computer creature from genius world.

The system we are supposedly getting in 2 years is an IBM I OS mainframe. I tried to find tutorials for IBM I. I have not had much luck. I saw classes on IBM's website but the topics were on acronyms I did not recognize. What will happen? What should I do?

Shenanigans ensue. GO! Smilie
