Went to Home Despot and picked up a bunch of electronic ballasts because I couldn't stand the magnetic ones anymore. The older ones were T12, at least thirty years old, and humming like a mofo. I was originally looking for T12 replacement ballasts for some reason, but you can only get two-bulb ballasts for T12.

So I switched the fixtures to T8, and saved $60. I'll save some money on the electricity bill (96W less to light the room, plus a bit because the newer ballasts are more efficient), and the bulbs will last longer (because the fixture runs cooler). Still, all I really care about is that the damn hum went away, and when I flick the switch the lights turn on instantly.

My, China looks impressive. It'd be different if it colored by province.

$BACKUP_SOFTWARE has been giving me far too much grief at work. You'd think I'd read a book at home or something. Maybe even unpack. Instead, I'm installing MVS.

You don't say... do you not understand the meaning of the $P command? I gorram want my printers drained. Be good or I'll replace you with JES3.

Okay, here's the problem. Stopping any device should drain it and reply with $HASP097. Yet JES2 stares at me with a glazed look in its eyes that says "hold my head to your ear, you will hear the sea."

Nope. After some flailing around and consulting the manuals, I decided to try reverse psychology:

Yeah. In this parallel world, starting a printer drains it.

And that's all she wrote. I'm hoping fixing this is in the sysgen checklist somewhere, or it's a weird emulator artifact thingy.
