The RPG headbanger’s ball

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

This video has been making the rounds a bit, but I still thought it would entertain readers here if you haven’t seen it. Aaron Bartell is a pretty well-known RPG programmer in the System i world. It looks like Bartell had a little too much coffee in his system and was staying up too late.

By the way, he’s rocking out to “Say This Sooner” by a band called “The Almost.” Some sample lyrics: “No one will ever see these things the way I do / No one will try / All my friends say that I’m gone / But I swear / I swear I’m not.” Those are lyrics that can probably explain a lot of System i programmers’ frustrations with higher-ups who want to phase out the platform. Enjoy.

    Some day when I "grow up" I am sure this video will bite me in the butt :-) My kids will use it as an excuse to go out and do crazy things themselves. Well, I guess just like shops that leave the System i for Microsoft, we all have to learn some things that hard way ;-) Aaron Bartell

    Simply, RPG is dying. Well, Death of RPG is not exaggerated. Time to try to learn Java or C# !.
