this did not go well

This is from my addled memory so may contain nuts.

Had a client whose office was 100m from Threadneedle St. (yep it's banking related)

Mission was to somehow get MSDOS 3x to communicate in Portuguese to the mainframe in Switzerland and print locally. Codepages, who the feck designed that?

Also X25 :( and a Swiss IT dude who did not want anything not DEC connected to his system.

P.S. It's Friday here! (When you retire you can choose what day of the week it is)
