CEBIT eh? Things always break when you want to demo them. I
couldn't go because we left it too late and thare are no flights
left at all that day.
Anyway, error -908 is a generic "can't connect" message about
network connections, and the error text says something about
tinkering with INFORMIXCONTIME and INFORMIXCONRETRY. I've never
seen anyone bother to do that though, because it has always
turned out to be a network configuration or OS level thing.
Either addresses or authentication (my 2 cents as they say).
But I'm not very good at this, so try looing at this (it's for SE
but the network stuff should still be good)
Or do a google search like this one:
That should turn up something useful.
So Archimedes Plutonium is tied to a stake in the backyard, and
sleeping in his kennel. Kibo tiptoes up (carrying a dustbin lid)
and measures the length of the chain Arch is tied to, then marks
a radius on the ground...
