New notice

Postby steve-myers » Fri 12 Sep 2014, 03:18

The admins have added this notice to the logon notices you probably do not bother to read.

Code: Select all
+-------------------------- Your name --------------------------+
|                                                               |
| If this is the first time you log on, and on the "Apply NEW   |
| TSO Userid" web page you have not put in a real name in the   |
| "Your Name" box, you should NOW go to and delete it @         |
|                                                               |
| <http://www.efglobe.com/cgi-bin/mainframe/mainuser?F=REMOVE>  |
|                                                               |
| and then reapply again, but this time with your real name in  |
| "Firstname Lastname" format, or a meaningful abbreviation of  |
| it. The admins will allow (2014-08-27) any more users on the  |
| system that do not provide a real name! Tom Cruise, James     |
| Bond, Mainframe Lover, are not acceptable, and neither are    |
| email addresses.                                              |
|                                                               |
| THIS POLICY WILL NOT BE APPLIED RETROSPECTIVELY, SO EXISTING  |
| USERS WILL NOT BE AFFECTED AND DO NOT NEED TO WORRY!          |

Prino probably does not know this - I certainly did not, but you can change your programmer name in TSO using the ALTUSER command.

ALTUSER your-userid NAME('YOUR NAME')

Don't try to change your buddy's programmer name. It won't work and the admins will probably use it as an excuse to disable your userid.

I definitely didn't know this, but now that I know, I will change the logon exec to only show the message if users have an "unacceptable" programmer name. :mrgreen:

I''ll try to do it later today, but I can't promise anything.
