One generation more of tech people and if you ask them who is IBM they will have go search in Wikipedia to know what that company is or was in the future. How could a company lost brand name so fast. Now instead of having IBM stores (and app stores) have only Apple stores. Apple shows that hardware is profitable not only in profits but also in brand recognition. What is not profitable is bad management. Fortunately HP realized it before too late.

Also try to navigate IBM support web pages is a nightmare. Cannot find anything. The quality of information for IBM acquired software is terrible: Rational, telelogic, etc. Better let the former company support team manage support.

When company profits depends n shedding people, it takes not long until it goes toast.

In my last trip to Dominique republic from Europe I made the bad decisions to chose a flight with transit connection in Miami. Even being a transit connection we were photographed, finger printed and had to fill up exhaustive forms. It took 3 hours to get to the connection flight! Almost lost it.

Never again fly through the US.

Wait for nomad planet, red darf, to pass nearby. Settle on or near it Use nomad planet/red darf materials to survive (may need special technology) Wait until a new interesting place is near enough. Move to it or send some settlers and continue travel. May consider change from nomad planet/red darf on the way if materials and/or direction is more convenient. Slow but safer
