Letter From the Marketing Department
If you have been looking for us we have a new URL. It is http://www.razor.visible.com .
Please pass this along. Visible Systems has purchased Tower Concepts and the old URL www.tower.com is now owned by Tower Records.
We would like to be on your approved vendor list, could you send us leads to the appropriate individuals we need to contact? Let me know what we can do to become more widely used at your site. My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you come in contact with the news group: Comp.software.config-mgmt please let your fellow engineers know how you are doing with Razor!
What is your wish list for Version 5.0? Lets be reasonable here....
Thank you for your time,
Kurt Gradel, Director of Marketing
PS: Tell your friends about Razor! They may be stuck with a tool they don't like!
NASA is in its third year of a five-year rewrite of the space shuttle launch sequence program. 300 engineers are using over 100,000 files on a daily basis. Razor Configuration Management software does stand the test of time, durability, and high quantity application!
We are now doing business through ARIBA for our Litton customers!
LMCO has renewed again for another 2 years!
Know Your Forward Slash and Your Back Slash
Razor is slash specific! When inputting the database you wish to connect to, some of our DOS friendly customers have used the back slash to input the location of the database. Razor, however, uses the forward slash (one for the Unix team).
This month's puzzler...
A man fires a bullet from a gun and another man catches the bullet with his bare hands. The bullet does not touch anything (except air, of course) from the gun to the hand. The second man is uninjured. How does he do it?
How could he do this?
Answer to the above puzzle can be found here.
