From the Publisher
things get embellished with repeated telling. The company names are
not real, as well as many of the names of individuals. Those who are in it
can probably easily fi gure out who they are in this book. The story starts
with Telecommunications back in the analog and live operators plugging
in cords for local calls; then moves briefl y through Purchasing and Data
Processing with the fi rst corporate main frame; and then to scheduling.
It is more about me and my travels than it is about scheduling. The
discipline took me to some very exotic places such as Tehran, Iran;
Bergen Norway; Madrid Spain; Leyte Island; Jakarta, Dieng, Bali all in
Indonesia; and Hawaii. It is also is a chronicle of some of my very good
friends and lovers over the years. I hope all of you that read this enjoy
it as much as I have in telling it.
