    Let me rephrase that last remark:

    The licensing patch I've installed on several test and one production
    machines,
    oss656a, works as advertised, and is no longer available, having today been
    superceded by oss656b, which presumably does the same job and then some.

    I'll only make one comment on this one line.

    Any OS of which I'm aware has to be reloaded when you change
    the 'engine'. That's about the only thing you should ever have to
    restart on a modern Unix system - though some things in SCO OSR5
    require restarts because of the way things are handled in the
    kernel. Not needed in the UW series.

    The MS things require so many restarts you'd think it was
    a race track on a Sunday afternoon.

    You must be talking about sprint cars on dirt.

    Actually I was thinking of horse races. I've never seen a regular
    one live, but many years ago there was a huge group of us for a
    presentation in NYC and the company chartered a three or four
    busses and took us all out to Roosevelt Raceway to see the
    trotters.

    But sprint cars fit that. Or demoltion derbys too.

    SCO was very kind in assisting me with this problem, even updating my
    anitique licenses.

    Exactly why it reminds me of NT. I'd rather not have to relink a
    kernel/colonel/kernal just to allow more connections/pseudo users. :)

    Heh, yeah, the last Win2KPro thing I built took 16 restarts by the time
    I installed all the softwarez, drivers, Network ID, users, etc. Better
    than the 30 it would have taken NT4, but still...

    (hypothetically) Linux took two restarts, one after build, another for
    relocation. =P

    OSR5 came from a SysVR3 background and parts of that pre-date NT.

    I just looked at the copyright on an NT3.5 box on the shelf and it
    is 1995 - about the time OSR 5.0 came out.

    OTOH a year or so ago on a *n*x system I aliased a new IP from a
    different block and provider onto the unit, made sure it worked,
    and then removed the original IP.

    All while it was running and all without a reboot, or even going
    into single user.

    That's the way computers should be.

    Things are getting better.
