I re-registered for Openvms VAX/Alpha license paks about 10 days ago, no response after 5 or 6 days, so resubmitted on HPE site and the CCScorp site, still nothing. Does anyone know if the hobbyist program is still active?

Recent reports on comp.os.vms indicate that it is alive.

Reports are also that if the "optional" entry for the purpose of the license is not filled out, that the hobby license request is not processed.

Other reports are that sometimes requests do not get processed until they are repeated.

Keep in mind that requests are processed in India during their normal business hours, so may be delayed because of their national holidays. It also appears to only be one person responding, so their may be delays if they are on vacation.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

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.
