    My left panel is (?) Dutch. Right panel is English.

    There is a headache for someone!

    here is a grab of it for those wondering:


    Someone slipped up I guess, there has been some major shuffling recently with the software and widehat services, getting ready for RC2 and ultimately 11.2

    does it bother anyone else that a major (?) Information Technology
    company listed on the New York Stock Exchange [NOVL] can't support
    their Linux factory/foundry any better than this??

    its like no matter how much we put into it [it being smashing bugs so
    they can *sell* SLES/D], Novell can't figure out how to develop an
    assured stream of high quality community support flowing back to us..

    I'm in the U.S and it doesn't seem to be affected here. Everything looks as though it should.

    No. Mistakes happen. People are human. As a non-US citizen, I fail to see the relevance of the NYSE.

    Its possible this only happened in certain parts of the world, making it much hard to test. Testing is likely very complicated because of the very large number of languages being supported.

    It appears to be fixed now

    It lasted circa 12 hours. What's wrong with that? Take a break!

    it is not that this is just an isolated incident...there is a pattern
    of non-support that is very obvious..

    how many weekends do we have 'little problems' like folks can't sign
    in, or the mirrors can't be reached, or the forum skins are messed
    up...etc etc etc...many many in the year and a half i've been here..

    my working hypnosis is the experienced and capable system admins have
    the weekends off...which is why we so often get those "little
    problems" fixed beginning about the time it is monday morning in
    Germany, and/or Utah ..

    oldcpu: the relevance to the NYSE is it is a public, profit oriented
    company who, in my opinion, is like many others with accountants
    killing their future by focusing too much on increasing short term
    profits by "controlling" current support costs....while you personally
    may not be involved because you are a non-US citizen, there are many
    many thousands of investors who care, no matter their citizenship or
    where they live..

    you too can be a share holder, and care as i do...NOVL is available
    for purchase no matter where you live..

    Here's an alternate view: If NOVL was really after a buck they'd drop openSUSE like a hot rock. Thank goodness they do have a long term view and keep it going.

    So there's two equally uniformed opinions. It's easy to generate uninformed opinions DD. Dime a dozen.
