In Topic: Honour Amongst Thieves

20 July 2007 - 08:07 AM

The stigma and stereo-types of Contractors mean that they are selfish gold diggers who would sell their own grandmothers. However in reality.......thats all true :eek:

Do you think there should be honour amongst Contractors in their workplace as there would be amongst co-employees.......or do you think it's everyman for himself.

Have seen various examples of the above and wondered what you guys thought.

That's not good enough Phil! I want names ...... :mad:

I havent really noticed much difference between employees and contractors where 'honour' is concerned.

In Topic: ProIV v2.2

@ Scott Malyon: I am not upgrading the system for the sake of upgrading. Consider it a disaster recovery plan, should the old server decide to have a hardware failure.

I think you'll be fine installing 2.2 as your backup.

We have been on 1.8 since 1992.

In Topic: ProIV v2.2

Hi guys & gals,

Please bare with me as I am a newb to ProIV!

I just recently inherited administration rights to a very old ProIV release >.< (version 2.2) sitting on a 10-15 year old server. It's only a matter of time before the whole thing falls over in a heap and management will be asking questions =D So much for technology refresh and forward planning...lol

So, in an effort to provide some redundancy I am trying to load ProIV v2.2 from the original floppies onto a Fedora Core 6 system. What I need now are some instructions on how to go about installing ProIV. It may not even be possible, but I am throwing the gauntlet out there :-"

Any help you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated.


I'd think very carefully before considering an upgrade, even if you are on an older version.... I have seen allot of time and money wasted on unnecessary upgrades.

If it aint broke, then dont fix it ...

There seems to be a problem with this poll .... There is no 1.x option!!

We are on version 1.8 (Mainframe).
