Timothy Prickett Morgan at IT Jungle thinks the new acronym the System i user group Common has come up with is a bit of “gallows humor.” The acronym – RiP – stands for Retired i Professional. Common wants them to mentor Common members despite their retiring from or working far less at jobs as System i and AS/400 administrators.
I like it. AS/400 and System i pros have a good sense of humor about themselves. This taps into that.
