Fix The Txagline

Today, I walked out of a meeting

We were in a design meeting for a new version of our communications software between our mainframe and the TCP/IP domain.

As our old software was lacking in several aspects, I wrote new software that is beeing used by ever more projects, and is working flawlessly for the last two years, but it is not the expensive enterprise package that is officially supported, so management ordered a merging of my software with the old package.

First the old school tried to make Unisys - the supplier of the old package - to rebuild it to include my functionality. But Unisys refused: they said the architecture is old technology and they don't want to support it anymore.

Then the old school dropped the rebuilding project into the lap of the general infrastructure department, who asked me to cooperate. I agreed in first instance. But when the old school insisted on using this old architecture and refused to change it I said: no thank you, do it yourself, and I left the meeting.

This will now escalate to the general manager who ordered the integration.

Anyway, I don't have a mortgage, which is nice.
