  1. Re: udcs (and donna h)

    Hello friends,

    I'm happy to report there is no hoax here. Ms. Hofmeister is now employed by the Allegroids.

    Oh, and the lowercase, if you are interested, springs from her years of study of Posix on the HP 3000 and Unix elsewhere. "Those are case-sensitive environments," she said Monday, day one at her new post. "I realized I could stop shouting with all-capital letters" which the 3000 commands require.

    Except for those caps on a more formal name, of course.

    Best wishes to both Donna and Allegro,

    Wait until donna finds out there is someone named Donna Hofmeister working
    at Allegro. What are the odds?

    probably the trickiest part of what you're wanting to do is
    to actually get the new/revised udc 'turned on'. as long as
    the udc is busy, your changes can't be saved.

    you'll certainly want to test your changes (duh :-)
    hopefully you have a quiet place (another system or
    non-production account) where you can make/test your changes.

    if you can give us some more details, it will make answering
    your question easier. - d

  2. Re: udcs (and donna h)

    Well, I'm still not convinced. Allegro is usually very prompt and diligent
    about updating their website with such information. I checked there
    yesterday and there was no mention of Donna. I just checked again this
    morning, still nothing and by my reckoning, it's been almost five days now.

    Maybe it was a stealth contest of some sort, to see if anyone is paying
    attention. In that case, I won. I wonder what the prize is. Carbon
    credits, maybe? :-)

    Donna, I wish you all the best.

  5. Re: udcs (and donna h)

    As one might expect, Denys is correct on all accounts: donna is now
    an Allegroid, and our website is more out-of-date than usual.

    Our website dude is under the weather this week, but when he gets
    caught up, you'll see that not only did donna join us this week,
    but so did Mike Tierney, someone who has had over 17 years' experience
    in HP's Response Center, answering questions on all things MPE, IMAGE,
    and ALLBASE.

    Our business continues to grow, providing OS support for MPE and HP-UX,
    as well as support for several third-party products in the HP 3000 and
    HP 9000 arenas. We are very proud that donna and Mike have agreed to
    join our team.

    Thanks also for the kind words and well wishes sent, both publicly and
    privately.

    Sincerely,

    Steve Cooper
    Allegro Consultants, Inc.
