He started it, so .....

Last week I installed VM on our remote z9 mainframe, all with the object
of allowing people to run their older OS/390 under it as a DR exercise. 

And to keep it Linux-relevant, once that's done, we install z/Linux -
probably SLES 10 and maybe CENTOS 5.

But before that I go to the 3rd world for 3 weeks to see my rellies and
old mates.

There, that should keep you going.  ;-)
