I ordered the OpenVMS Alpha 8.3 media kit over two months ago and still have not received it. I got the VAX kit in about six weeks, but the Alpha kit is the main one that I wanted.

They take ages Dave - my Vax kit took weeks and I still haven't received my Alpha one yet.

I think it's just one person doing it and it is very much as-and-when he has the time to do it. They don't seemt to respond to emails.

I ordered my Alpha media kit on September 9 and it still has not arrived. I understand that these kits are being fulfilled by a hobbyist in his spare time, but 2+ months seems like a fair amount of time to get a simple CD in the mail....

Has it arrived yet? Either way, HP should be in charge now of both license and media kit distribution. I think they're planning to distribute CD/DVD images for download, rather than to have to order these Hobbyist media kits.

I hope you'll still give VMS a chance!

... hopefully things will improve... but I'm a little worried.

Before license renewals were a 15-minute data-entry-to-email deal. Put mine in last night and so far the only response is
Thanks for showing an interest in the OpenVMS hobyyist program!

We will respond soon.

Scratch that - they just came through.

You don't need to do one app per system anymore!

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
