Chesh...long time since I wrote; more later! In the meantime, something for your list....with a postscript response from a pal of mine.... ---------- From: Three_Moons Sent: Thursday, February 12, 1998 6:05 PM Subject: Fwd: Millenia Year Application Software System
This memo is to announce the development of a new firm-wide software system. We are currently building a database that will contain strictly year 2000 compliant data. The program is referred to as the Millenia Year Application Software System (MYASS).
Next Monday at 9:00am there will be a meeting in which I will show MYASS to everyone. We will continue to hold demonstrations throughout the month so thst all employees will have an opportunity to get a good look at MYASS. As for the status of the implementation of the program, I have not addressed the networking aspects, so currently only one person at a time can use MYASS.
Just this morning I walked into a subordinates' office and was not surprise to find that he had his nose buried in MYASS. Just last week, when asked to enter some information into the program, I had my secretary say to me, " I'm a little nervous, since I've never put anything into MYASS before." I volunteered to help her through her first time and when we were done she admitted that it was relatively painless and she was actually looking forward to doing it again. She went so far as to say that after using SMART, Chess, SAP and Oracle, she was ready to fully embrace MYASS.
I know ther have been concerns over the virus that was recently found in MYASS, but I am pleased to say it has been eliminated. In the future, protection will be required prior to entering MYASS.
We planned this database to encompass all information associated with the business. So as you begin to use the program, feel free to put anything you want into MYASS. As MYASS grows larger, we envision a time when it will be commonplace to walk by an office and see a manager hand a paper to an employee and say "Here, stick this in MYASS."
This program has already demonstrated great benefits to the company during recent OSHA and EPA audits. After requesting certain historical data, the agency representatives were amazed at how quickly we provided the information. When asked how the numbers could be retrived so rapidly our Environmental Manager proudly stated "I just pulled them out of MYASS."
(POSTSCRIPT: A pal of mine writes): I hear they're working an a simpler version for Windows CE, codenamed K.I.S.S. MYASS. -- ********************************* Reply to Three_Moons@vm.com *********************************
