Glock Announcing "Big News" Soon
#31
A .22 TCM glock would actually be much more feasible, because they would not even have to make a new frame. .22 TCM will fit in any 9mm length magazine, and offers very similar ballistics to the 5.7mm, though the bullet is more a .22 mag type, than the 5.7mm, which uses true spitzer rifle bullets.

I doubt they'll ever give up their AOL account.

Ugh, don't bring up legacy protocols, flashbacks of setting up a Token Ring to IP gateway and splitting one Token Ring into two using passive MAU's.

I was setting up new machines at a local school one time. Brand new machines that I had to install old token ring cards into because that was their backbone. After each machine came onto the network the server would Abend and then reboot.

Sat there for a bit and watched the counters on the server to see that the error count was running up very fast, once it reached a certain amount, the server would abend and reboot, just to start the process all over again.

Upon investigating the problem I was in the wiring closet on the floor below and there was the problem. They had a stack of 8 passive MAU's with the big black square connectors. Most of them had the black cable lopped off about 6 inches from the plug and then they had telephone flat satin cable stripped and wrapped onto the bare wires of the black cable. All this was held together with masking tape.

They didn't understand why they were getting all these errors. The machines I was putting in were replacing DOS machines with Windows 95, the increase in traffic because of the way Windows 95 communicated on the network greatly increased the errors.

Don't know if they ever fixed the problem with their hack job wiring.

I'm so glad that my IT career didn't start until 2007 ... I love you CSMA/CD
I love Glocks... I don't know why ?? ShrugShrug

My first interview out of college was at a major chemical company in SEPA. They were running Macintosh Classic computers over Digital Pathworks. I asked for my résumé back...


Of every one hundred men in battle, ten should not even be there. Eighty, are nothing but targets. Nine are the real fighters, we are lucky to have them since they make the battle. Ah, but the one—one is the Warrior—and he brings the others home. —Heracletus
