Hello

When I started as a programmer the computer room was accessible to programmers you could pick up yor reports, request tape mounts and have card decks executed. In most computer rooms there was also a keypunch machine for fixing bad job cards and such.

I did get a peek at the z9 while at the client data center... the operator (or data center manager, who knows?) shooed me off before I could get a good look. So have I seen it? yes. really? well....

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Suggest you talk with someone in the Computer Operations group (or your manager) and ask for a bit of a tour (if your office is somewhere near the computer room and not a remote site).

Hi Dick,

She is from Pune (a city in India), a "tour" seems to be a distant dream. icon_smile.gif However, she might try to get in touch with CDAC or Maple (local Mainframs coaching cetnres) they have got their own Mainframes, I've heard.

Hi Anuj,

Yup, i knew Pune is in India, but not that this would be a remote site icon_smile.gif

I've been some places where the IT staff is "just down the hall" from the data center and most of the people had never seen the inside of the computer room.
