Hi Messerb,

you ask;

Just curious, what line of work are you in that you can step away for two years and remain
competitive for good job opportunities when you get back. I saw "consultant" in your profile.
What's your area of expertise? >>>>

My husband and I are usually hired by companies/corporations that use IBM 'TPF' as their main processing system. (In case, you don't know TPF is run on - what many now consider - the old dinosaur main-frame CPU's). Our jobs mainly consists of retrofitting new software releases from IBM to the control program, designing and implementing software enhancements to existing applications, and/or transfer skills to many who thought TPF was dead a number of years ago to now realize they are choking when they moved major input/output volume applications on server-based PC's.
Sorry I get carried away.

Helen
