Hi.
I'm an italian CS student with an interest in Operating Systems, and I just found out about the OpenVMS Hobbyist program. I think this is a rare opportunity for us to get to know how real OSes worked - and in this case still do :-)

That said, our local DECUS chapter has been dead for years, so I joined HP Connect at Guest-level membership about two weeks ago, but I still haven't got my membership number.
I also tried to contact them using their form but to no avail.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

TIA,
Matteo

Connect have said they know there are issues with this but do keep chasing them.

Are you aware of this

I wasn't aware of that program, but unfortunately my university is really busy with post-earthquake recovery (I live in L'Aquila) so I doubt they are interested in a similar project at the moment.

Guess I'll just have to wait a little longer than I thought smiley

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

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.

Turns out I had an account here, it still was set to my location a decade ago, so hey, I'm back after over a decade!

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
