FORCED to buy new cart for XL400?
It seems that ALL software for MacIvory's and XL400's will ONLY be
delivered on the small cartridges. We already have two carts (large) at
our site; it seems extravagant to buy another. That's one of the
reasons we have networks.
Is it really that hard to write this stuff onto large tapes? IBIN files
can live on a 3600's disk, and I can load world files onto a local disk
from a remote cart; Cant symbolics write them onto a remote cart as
well? In any case we should be able to get the layered products on
large carts. It is admittedly a bit more trouble to organize the tape
production, but you do have computers and we're NOT talking about having
to stick a large cart drive into an XL400 cabinet.
If this is indeed the policy, I find it rather arbitrary. So the
XL400's are compatible, huh? If it is not the policy, I apologize;
However, my customer rep thinks this is the policy and even she was
Is anybody else having problems with this? What do the symbolics people
on the list think of this?
