I had forgotten from my Altiris
training that their licenses are not cumulative. So, when I bought 300 more licenses and installed them, imagine my chagrin when my license count went from 3200 to 300! I wrote and was reminded that I have to surrender licenses in order to get new ones and was sent a form.
The form is a PDF file with really close cropped lines with all kinds of legalese telling you they will turn your network in to a Novellesque mess should you violate your license agrreement.
So, fine, no online/electronic way to do this, so I print the document out and proceed to fill in the arcane-obtuse blanks by hand. At least there is a fax number I can send the blinking thing to!
So, there I am writing! I get to the Licensee Info section and there it is. Did you see it? Yes, it's the last straw! Right there, all in lowercase Arabic bold lettering, parenthesized, are the words (please type)
. I don't know about your shop, but there hasn't been a typewriter around here for years! You could hear the blood vessels popping in my brain!
Help me understand, please, why someone that has software that can backup every hard drive in the organization has to have a hand printed, typed, document so I can buy and install more of their crap!
