Hobbyist License - still alive?

Is the VMS Hobbyist license still available?

I have found numerous dead links, and many of our HP reps don't seem to know who to contact in order to get a definitive answer.

PLEASE don't respond with a dead link. If you have any information, I would appreciate any assistance you can provide.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thomas,

the original site has had to move domain, after some problems with their DNS supplier (see the discussions in comp.os.vms).

You should find everything you need at the new site:

Murali, that is a stale URL.

The current URL is here:

http://vmshobbyist.com/

There was a problem with the domain renewal for the old Hobbyist domain, so the site moved domains. (This was fairly widely discussed in the usual spots around the net, FWIW.)

Some of the usual problems and confusions for new OpenVMS hobbyists are listed here:

And yes, that page has updated URLs.

Ahh. Thanks for pointing that out.
This must have been the dead link that Thomas was mentioning.
