Current state of OpenVMS Hobbyist Program

Hi,

is the OpenVMS Hobbyist Program still active? I filled out the form at https://www.hpe.com/h41268/live/index_e.aspx?qid=24548 and got an automatic reply from no-reply@hp.com (not hpe.com) saying:

"An auto-acknowledgement will be sent to you to confirm your e-mail address and to confirm that we have received your inquiry. If you do not receive an auto-acknowledgement after 1 hour, please re-submit your inquiry and verify that you've entered the correct e-mail address."

I sent it yesterday and as of now I have not received any reply. openvmshobbyist.com, which is referenced by some of the older posts on this forum, states at https://www.openvmshobbyist.com/news.php?readmore=39 that we should use the HPE form. Is this the expected behavior or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Tom

Yep, OpenVMS Hobbyist Program is alive.

if you do not receive a response from HPE within a reasonable time, try using http://plato.ccsscorp.com/hobbyist_registration.php instead of https://www.hpe.com/h41268/live/index_e.aspx?qid=24548.

Please, keep us updated.

Thank you for your response.

I'll wait for some time, then try the other form and update on how it went..

Update: I got the reply with the PAKs and additional information from the OpenVMS Customer Lab (this time correctly @HPE.com).  I've also sent a reply notifying them of the misleading automatic response. I'm looking forward to learning about OpenVMS.

Thank you again for your help,
