           COMPUTING CENTER RECOMMENDS USE OF 20000 SERIES TAPES
 
       The  Computing  Center strongly recommends that all new user-owned
   tapes be stored as Series 20000 tapes; use of Series 20000  tapes  for
   storage of user-owned tapes may be required by the Computing Center in
   the future.
 
       Series  20000  tapes  are  stored  in  the  University of Kentucky
   Computer Room and are quickly accessible for Pickup and Conversational
   Job System (CJS) jobs.  Much of the paper work previously required for
   tape storage and usage is eliminated by using Series 20000 tapes.  For
   more information, see the May or June issue of the Newsletter.
 
 
                         CONVERSATIONAL JOB SYSTEM
                                                             Allan Hetzel
 
       The  Conversational  Job  System  (CJS) is a system which allows a
   user to submit jobs to the batch operating system  from  a  low  speed
   terminal.   CJS  users  can have their HASP output produced as regular
   hardcopy, or they can examine it at their terminal by making  it  into
   VM disk files (and print it later if necessary).
 
       The  CJS user uses a language subset of VM/370 CMS for editing and
   maintaining disk files which can contain JCL, programs,  and/or  data.
   There  are  also  special commands for submitting jobs, monitoring job
   status, canceling jobs, retrieving  jobs,  and  printing  user  output
   returned to the terminal.
 
       Submitted jobs are not allowed replies or special forms mounts and
   must have Setup cards for disk or tape mounts.  Jobs with output to be
   routed  back  to the terminal are limited to 1600 print lines and 2000
   punched cards.
 
       This  new  service  is  available  by contacting the University of
   Kentucky Computing Center Main Office, McVey Hall room  72,  Lexington
   campus  (phone  258-2916).   Among the things you will need to use CJS
   are:  a disk space account number, a regular computing account number,
   and a password for the userid which will be assigned to you.  If there
   are any  questions,  contact  Selwyn  Zerof,  Manager  of  Operations,
   University of Kentucky Computing Center, McVey Hall room 75, Lexington
   campus  (phone  258-2916).   Additional  documentation  will  soon  be
   available.
