Coloured Book Software Support Terminates at Xmas on VXCERN!
Julian Bunn CN/DCI
For quite some years, Coloured Book Software (CBS) has been supported on VXCERN. This software is used principally for connections to the UK Academic Network, JANET. The CBS product has in the past been supported by DEC, but from October 31st, 1993, this support has been stopped. In view of this fact, and that the use of CBS on VXCERN has fallen off, and that CBS support has been stopped on the CERNVM system, and that we have no intention of providing an Alpha version of CBS, we have decided to
TERMINATE THE CBS SERVICE AT CHRISTMAS 1993.
If anybody who uses CBS wishes to complain about this decision, which has been taken in collaboration with the UK Particle Physics Network Coordination Group (PPNCG), then they are invited to send a mail to MPHV2::HEPGRIPE or mint::``firstname.lastname@example.org'', explaining their unhappiness!
The following VMS commands will thus be unavailable from 1st. January 1994:
