  2. The IBM mainframes using CICS was there long before Unix and the Internet.

  3. Sure, all we would have to do is monitor the border checkpoints for
    terrorist suspects *leaving* the US!

    Mis-communication happens. Most people attempt to reconcile
    mis-communications and are satisfied when mis-communications are resovled.
    Trouble makers attempt to feed on mis-communication to make trouble. Any
    mis-communication that existed here has been resolved and continuation of
    this has no value other than degrading into useless attacks in the manner I
    see elsewhere.
    From a newsgroup of course. If you don't understand that then you are
    intentionally being ignorant just to make trouble.

    You clipped the comment that I replied to and that takes my comment out of
    context. Your comment implied that it is not worth trying to protect our
    systems from malicious software and my reply is a response to that. If I
    misunderstood you then let's attempt to reconcile our misunderstandings
    instead of .... whatever.

    A year is not long compared to nearly 40 years of existence of Unix.
    ARPANET, the predecessor of the internet, was created about that same time.

    This is certainly getting way off-topic.

    Your comment can easily stand alone.
    I would never imply something like that. I'm pretty sure we agree on
    the goal. We only disagree on the means.
    Yearh. Well.

  9. You don't even know what CICS is do you? A year? A year? CICS running on
    the IBM mainframes is the forerunner to all of this Internet stuff you
    see today, which happened in the late 60's that CICS hit the scene and
    is still going strong to this day.

    CICS just happened to be running on closed/protected IBM networks and
    you never saw it. But also, a form of CICS is running on the mainframes
    and other platforms that provide SOA solutions on the Internet to SOA

    Did you all NOT see the previous request to remove from your discussion? This has
    NOTHING to do with Visual Basic so please QUIT posting to this newsgroup.

    You did not see the ones that you did not see, so your comments are
    incorrect. I did do as requested but instead of getting credit I get a
    criticism. I am sorry I missed one but I would be more responsive if I got
    credit for doing as requested in other replies.

    I hope this thread dies quickly but this message is more likely to keep it

    I am not sure you know what CICS is; see:

    Which says that the "first release of CICS was made available on July 8,

    Then see:

    Which says

    - "of what would become the ARPANET were interconnected" .... "on
    October 29, 1969"
    - "first description of the TCP protocols during 1973"
    - use of the term internet "to describe a single global TCP/IP network
    originated in December 1974 with the publication of RFC 675"

    And when you read that you will see that the internet is based on software
    that was developed much before that time, but 1974 is a little later than
    1970 as I stated previously; there is no clear date of the birth of the

    CICS is not a communication protocol; it is a transaction processor. It uses
    SNA to communicate, although SNA did not exist when CICS was first used.
    CICS is not part of SNA but it is part of SAA; do you know what they are?
    SAA is an architecture so it does not specify CICS; CICS though is an
    implementation of the relevant portion (transaction processing?) of SAA.
    Perhaps you are not familiar with the organization "Guide"; it is an
    organization of IBM customers. I remember being at Guide when SAA was

    CICS has had such a small influence on the internet that it can be
    considered to be none. Can you provide an authoritative article saying that
    the internet was developed based on CICS?

    This is getting way too off-topic; we can continue this elsewhere and if you
    want to choose where then let me know where.

    I'm noticing three things about you "Jack" based on a few threads:

    You always end up off-topic.
    You seem to need to have the last word.
    You reply to what you feel you can contest while ignoring the context of
    the prior post.

    Sounds more like a troll.
    But, don't worry. If you must have the last word, again. I won't be
    following any of your other posts.

    You are the one that brought up topics that are off-topic, irrelevant and
    erroneous. I am trying to communicate that but I am hoping to let the facts
    get the message across. I made it clear that CICS is not relevant to the
    development of the internet and this is your response. You don't want to
    admit that your comments were not accurate. If you don't want your
    inaccuracies corrected then don't make inaccurate comments. I forget what
    you replied to when you made your comment about CICS and the internet but I
    assume you said that because you did not have anything more relevant to say
    about another inaccuracy.

    Sometimes people just won't admit mistakes and instead make additional
    comments that are even more inaccurate. You won't admit inaccuracies so we
    should ignore you.

    Me too. You can call me that too.

    You are using your intelligence to ignore the point that you are someone
    that has a need to always have the last word. So go ahead and take your best
    shot for provoking a response from us; we are saying we won't reply.

  17. Who do you think you are Usenet Moses? You are nobody to speak of and
    you're somewhat useless. You're the one flying all over the place
    talking about this, that, the other and all over thread. You have gone
    wild. Don't you have anything else to do but bore me to death?

  18. If the shoe fits ware it, and don't let stop you. You have gone totally
    out of control following me around like a lapdog, gee. :)
