We are pleased to announce that our Front Desk service for Unix Workstations
and for X Terminals is now fully operational. Among the services which we offer
are the following:
Price lists for those Unix Workstations and X Terminals which are recommended
and supported by our group. Also we have in some cases guidelines to assist
with configuration selection. We are currently working on producing a chart
attempting to show relative performance among the various brands and we hope
to have a first release of this shortly.
Small stocks of NCD X Terminals for urgent purchases. This will never be more
than a very small number of devices so users should not rely on being able to
obtain a device at short notice but we will try to keep one or two available
at any one time. In addition, we will offer assistance to users to submit
their own purchase requests to Finance Division.
For users who have problems with their workstation or X terminal, we will try
to act as a dispatch service, pointing the user at the appropriate person
within the group or outside most likely to be able to help.
Anyone wishing to use this service is invited to send mail to
