Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist program.

Would the Hobbyist discussions be worth an informal meeting -- analogous of a Birds of a Feather session -- at the upcoming 2008 Bootcamp?

Good idea - I expect most of the relevant folks would be there.

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist program.

I've not seen many cheep Alpha systems on ebay.com.au.

Recently picked up a zx2000 for under 150$ AUD.

I don't know of anyone (yet) over here that can help me.


I really hope that Hp can kit a media kit out one day.

Thank you for all your help!

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist program.

Is OpenVMS IA64 kit available yet?

If yes, can someone please send me the link?

Thanks in advance.

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist program.

AFAIK...

- no hobbyist OpenVMS I64 kit.

- no anonymous download is available to hobbyists.

- no plans for either.

You'll need to purchase a kit (new or used) or borrow a kit and tools from somebody that has one.

There are some related discussions over at the OpenVMShobbyist.org web site.

Send it where? Advertising a potential
copyright infringement in a forum run by the
copyright owner sounds to me unwise. Or, at
the very least, impolitic.

Dear HPE OpenVMS hobbyist,

 

Received this notice today. It looks like the entire Hobbyist program is terminated. It would have been nice of them to at least post the link for the renewal as its proving difficult to find the link they alluded to.

 

This is to inform you that HPE is concluding the HPE OpenVMS Hobbyist license program in alignment with the HPE OpenVMS support roadmap.

If you wish to understand more details, please reach out to us at the earliest through the usual license renewal webpage.

 

Thank you.

Dear HPE OpenVMS hobbyist,

 

I received this in my mail today. It looks like the entire Hobbyist program is terminated. It would have been nice for them to at least include the link, as finding it is proving challenging. Another fine example of HPE abandining enthusiasts into the wild to seek out other more receptive companies ad vendors.
