Jeffory M. Urquhart who is an ERP Implementation Specialist at Microliance in Florida has started an interesting trivia game over on LinkedIn that asks some tough but fascinating questions about MAS 90.
You’ll need to go way back with the product because Jeff’s questions are not for the beginner.
Jeff’s list of questions appear on the MAS 90 group on LinkedIn (click here to join first). This is not an official Sage forum, rather it’s a spot that fellow users and consultants can gather to exchange information, network — and even play the occasional game of MAS 90 trivia.
Here’s the list of MAS 90 trivia questions.
- What does M.A.S stand for?
- What did SOTA stand for?
- What was 09SAM?
- What operating system platform was MAS 90 originally written for?
- When initially marketed, what was the application language that MAS 90 was written in?
- In the original versions, how were terminal IDs set?
- What year was MAS 90 introduced?
- What was the first version of MAS 90 for Windows?
What’s interesting is several long time Sage employees have added questions like the one Erika Jelovsek poses:
Ahhh, but if you really want to call yourself a historian of all things MAS 90 , you need to be able to define the acryonyms for these release names. And Craig, no jumping in right away…..let the non-Sage folks take a trip in the wayback machine to come up with these answers! ERBY, MERBY, LEFTY, IMSOPO, and, my personal favorite, TAMAN.
For the answers to these questions – and to read several more interesting tidbits of MAS 90 trivia – head over to the MAS 90 LinkedIn group. You’ll have to join the group but membership is free and you can leave anytime.
