He sees more and more Unix and NT boxes being brought in. He says that
he is often asked "when do you plan to retire" . He is 53 years old.
They cannot sack him even when the VMS machines eventually go in
another 3 to 4 years . Australian industrial law makes it almost
impossible to sack someone except for criminal acts .
He found it funny in the beginning . After all, he has little or no
work to do, he has guaranteed lifetime job security and receives a
six figure salary . However , he now has started to feel humiliated by
the frequent "when do you plan to retire" and is retraining in Oracle
on Unix boxes.
