At one place I worked, we had three mainframes; but none were connected. One mainframe usually kept everyone on shift because of all the printing. I modified the print spooler (IBM 370) to generate a "print spool file" (on tape) that could be used to print on the other mainframes. The operators were all happy because they finished early; management frowned because I didn't "ask them" first. So, meaningful in the sense it helped someone and I could also see the results (which isn't always easy to quantify).


"Before entering on an understanding, I have meditated for a long time, and have foreseen what might happen. It is not genius which reveals to me suddenly, secretly, what I have to say or to do in a circumstance unexpected by other people; it is reflection, it is meditation." - Napoleon I
