RudedogRudedog, or Bret (or Staff Sergeant Myrick), is a decorated veteran of the Army Reserve and the Army National Guard. He’s also a decorated IT professional who’s come a long way from where he started: “delivering reports and changing printer ink in a System/34 shop in 1983, while waiting for Johnson Propulsion Systems to call and offer him a job in Astro-Engineering.” The call never came and lucky for us, he taught himself RPG/II – IV. A strong supporter of free programming on IBM machines, he has experience as a programmer, P/A, manager, director and 3rd party consultant to JD Edwards, making him a great asset to IT Knowledge Exchange. He’s been busy the past couple days answering your toughest AS/400 questions. Thanks again, Bret!
