Company paying tons for retired old mainframe devs to come teach basic z/OS and to give a hands-on. Third try and they still sent a guy showing off their windows based mainframe replacements without terminal connections.

I set an pirated z/OS up and now I have to deal with 10 coworkers who apparently can't unpack a 7zip, follow basic instructions or failed to open the .torrent with files i distributed 14 days ago. Losing the will to live (in legacy tech)

    @Code-Junkie Boss should have just forked out money for a z/OS evaluation, or asked IBM and not their competitors for a conaultant.

    At least now my coworkers can browse the filesystem and edit some code when they are sent to clients in three weeks. =/
