    It's ace to see kids falling in love with technology.

    It also brought back some happy memories. I've been to Rutgers a few times as my ex wife #1's uncle was a professor there in marine biology.

    There's a big chance he would have used that in some shape or form.

    There's a lack of mainframe expertise out there but a lot of really critical stuff still relies on them. Banks in particular are a sore spot: the people who originally wrote the software for these systems are either quite literally dead, dying, or retiring, and very few people are taking their place. These decades-old systems are among the main reasons that we've had some really high-profile IT issues at banks in recent years, and that stuff has a serious impact on people's lives: people haven't been able to pay their bills or access their money.

    To have bought and set up an IBM mainframe in your spare time is a hell of an achievement!

    Not enough that he buys the stuff, but has some clue how the stuff works, too (at his age)...! :eek:

    Tbh might as well call it the final, whoever wins out of those 2 is probably going to win overall.

    Maybe but remember that this is rugby, anything can happen. Who would of said that Japan would beat Ireland and Scotland?

    *raises hand*

    Well tbf them beating Ireland was a little bit of a surprise, I thought Ireland might just scrape a win.
    Scotland... not so much.
