The above note worries me... Do we have any machines, or better still,
does Symbolics think we have any machines that are not under maintenance?
If so, I would like to be contacted now to resolve this instead of finding
out in June that I didn't get 8.0 because one of twenty or so systems we
have fell through the maintenance crack, or the paperwork just hasn't caught
up yet, or someone ordered a MacIvory board without my knowing and has
never placed it under maintenance, etc...
Please clarify this for me and other concerned administrators.
Thanks, Rod Swab email@example.com
I agree that is is an issue, given the past difficulties with
Symbolics service not knowing the state of service contracts,
large delays (> 3 months) in getting their paperwork updated, etc.
But, is the general policy really tenable? What do other vendors
do about this?
In any event Symbolics must be responsible for notifying *all*
sites that are in-eligible. Other opinions, users?
