Hello!
I registered with Encompass more than a week ago and received my user number, but I cannot get my license becouse it keep saying my user number is not in the database. What can I do in order to get my license?

So without wishing to be rude about it, is there anyone over at Encompass/Connect I can prod?

I have been waiting more than a month, and having handed over my membership fees finding that no-one even answers email is disturbing to say the least... smiley

The OpenVMS Hobbyist Program is operated as a volunteer effort, and is not an integral part of any single HP/etc User organization. I do coordinate with many of them, some more frequently that others. The US, UK, and Germany are the three most active organizations, with the Encompass/ConnectHQ generally sending me updates every 1-2 weeks. UK and Germany a little more infrequent than that.

The OpenVMS Hobbyist Program runs it's own "membership" database, which is an aggregate of all these organizations, and depends upon updates from the participating Chapters. This is a synergistic approach, since they get offer Hobbyist availability as a benefit, and they validate the people are real individuals for me.

Oh great, I used "synergistic" in a sentence...

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.

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