NOTICE: (Wed, 14:01 EST) OpenVMS.org is currently in maintenance mode. Late last week the database became corrupted. An initial attempt was made to recover the db but a two week old backup had to be used instead. There have been plans to change the content management system to Wordpress. After trying to rebuild several servers using older versions of PHP, depricated function issues remained a problem. So after many days and many hours I've decided to get the database converted to Wordpress which will include a replicated theme so the site will look similar. This is going to take several more days. The website will hopefully be fully functional by early next week. Thanks for your patience and sorry for the downtime. -kf

Announcement from HP
OpenVMS Live Chat
The OpenVMS GCC Support team is excited to announce another path from which we can serve you, our valued customer base. As of June 27th, you will be able to “Live Chat” directly with members of the GCC team from your laptops, tablets or any device from which a browser is available. Live chat will complement the existing comprehensive support model designed to allow you with the means to reach the OpenVMS expert needed as quickly as possible.
