Now for the winners, chosen completely at random by our crack sales staff.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks again for the information as well as your support of Razor. Stay tuned for future contests, only available to Concepts subscribers.

For our customers running Razor on HP-UX 9.0x (...there may be a few of you out there...), we're sure that you're aware that HP will not be making this version of their Operating System Y2K compliant. This will definitely have an impact on the functionality and performance of Razor.
Though Razor itself is Y2K Compliant (version 4.x), we ALSO require the underlying OS to be Y2K Compliant...since we rely on Host Operating System utilities (time-related functions, utilities and the archival engines, SCCS and RCS) for various Razor actions.
It is Tower Concepts position that support for Razor on HP-UX 9.x will end in December, 1999. We are making this announcement now to allow those users time to consider steps necessary to upgrade the underlying OS for a smooth transition into the new year with Razor.
This announcement has NO impact on HP-UX Razor users running on HP-UX 10.x and 11.0 or Razor users on any other OS.
For HP-UX 9.x Razor users, we recommend an upgrade to a Y2K Compliant version of your OS. Razor Administrators SHOULD discuss this with their System Administrators or appropriate System personnel prior to taking any action. For additional information on HP-UX Y2K Upgrade Programs, we suggest visiting Y2K-upgrades .
We encourage you to visit the Tower Concepts web site and review our Y2K statement at y2k.htm . Also, it may be worthwhile to check out a previous article in this Newsletter that discusses Razor and Y2K at concpt30.htm .
It is our intention to use this Newsletter forum as a means to provide reminders, tips, and advice regarding the Y2K issue and Razor.
Here's a Tech Tip that may make writing attached scripts for issues easier and will certainly make it more efficient. Click here to read the latest tip.
Willy Hope placed the Do Not Disturb sign on the handle and closed the door. Willy noted the time as 1:00am and called the front desk for a wake-up call at 11:00am. Exhausted, Willy fell into bed and tried in vain to fall asleep. By 3:00am, unable to sleep, Willy asked the front desk to page Sally, his business associate in the next room, with an urgent message. Luckly, Willy heard the phone ringing in Sally's room and a few minutes later he mercifully fell asleep. What could the ringing phone in Sally's room have to do with Willy's ability to fall asleep?
