anyone else have the privilege of running 2321 data cells?  had a bunch.
unreliable as hell.  there was a job running continuously recovering
transactions off of log tapes.  one night at 3am, head of apps program
(i was systems) got a call that a tran tape was unmounted with a console
message that recovery was complete.  ops did not know what it meant or
what to do.  was the first time in over five years the data were stable.

wife of same head of apps grew more and more tired of 2am calls.
finally she answered one "david?  he said he was going in to work."
ops never called in the night again.
