Howdy! I've been running a hobbyist system for a couple of years now, and think that the OpenVMS Hobbyist program is just about the greatest thing there is. However, I've wanted to get a license for my VAX 4000/300 and don't seem to be able to get one. The request form works fine and says it was submitted, but I never get my license. I've attempted to contact the OpenVMS hobbyist site administrators, but haven't heard back. I know it's all volunteer and they're busy with their day jobs, so I don't want to be a pest. Has anyone else noticed a problem or is it possible I'm doing somethings stoopid?

I and others have noticed that they are slow as molasses! Be persistent!

I received a reply from the friendly OpenVMS hobbyist people. The site is now working. Apparently there was a technical issue resulting from a change in servers. The licenses now show up literally a minute after the request is submitted! Woo hoo!
