    Your username doesn't register with me.

    Your assessment of my skills is only partially correct.

    So, can you answer my question? and while we are at it, interpret the following into English -

    FA35A1056302

    and the fact that I can, should demonstrate that I do know a lot more about mainframes than you seem to think. If you can't answer these questions, then clearly in my area of IBM mainframe expertise, I know more than you do. The fact that I don't know the finer details of what IBM mainframes can emulate is only because I've not worked in that area. I only know of the existence of REXX, but have never used it. There are probably others, DB2 being one I know of.

    However, I've been thinking more on what my German colleagues said, and I guess what they meant is that the IBM mainframe they were using was "serving" data to a Windows platform, just as the machine I support does now on a daily basis.

    So, I'm awaiting an answer from you.

    OK, so I take that as you don't know as much about IBM mainframes as I do.

    I think this thread has run its course and has descended into a pi$$ing contest.

    I'll ask the mods to close it.

    It is not that your take on how to approach IR35 is that big a deal. The reason you get to be a 'martyr' is because you keep involving yourself in exchanges like this and keep pushing them.

    HTH.

    but as Basil said, I didn't start the war. I will always defend myself against any slur on my expertise. I was writing machine code programs when many on here were just swimming round in a sac.
