I wrote a tape automation system using VM and 14 linked StorageTek tape robot silos to support a massive TPF shop in Germany. Some PC-based automation software emulating 3270 terminals was also used to "glue" the systems together and it used Rexx as a macro language as well. Later, I went to work for the Automation company in the US. They called me, at that time, a "Rexxpert"!

My boss at that time had a strong accent and pronounced my name, Robert, as "Robot" and the tape robots as "tape roberts"!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
