[ Firstly, the on-topic bit... ]

I've got an HP 712/80 here with HPUX 10.20 (I think - I do have HPUX 11
media here, but I've not yet plugged in a CD-ROM to install it).

What sort of RAM does this thing take? I'm pretty sure it's nothing as
standard as normal SIMMS.

Amen - I've been fighting this for the last 5 years. We were sold 2+
years ago and bought by a company with the same problem (although nowhere
near as bad).

I can relate to that also. Good ideas are really bad ideas until 6 months
later when management suddenly have this great idea that sounds just like
the one you mentioned 6 months prior.

In our case, trying to convince management that using a real database for
their critical accounting system would be better than a transactionless
MySQL server.
