This fixed       cost is set at the time of the original purchase, and is valid       until July 2, 1994.  Please note that the customer is not       required to buy an Alpha/AXP system, it is simply an option       available to them.       The "Alpha Ready" offer for the VAX 6000 In-cabinet Upgrade       Program allows a customer to purchase selected VAX 6000 upgrade       options today, and receive a firm, fixed price to upgrade to a       DEC 7000 Model 610 AXP in the future.       The specific model numbers eligible for this Alpha-Ready       program  are:       Model No.  Description               62xx TO 66xx PATHS:               66AUA-AA   210-610               66AUN-AA   210-610 128MB               66AVB-AA   220-610 128MB               66AUH-AA   230-610 128MB               66AUJ-AA   240-610 128MB               63xx-66xx PATHS:               66AUA-AC   310-610               66AUN-AC   310-610 128MB               66AVB-AC   320-610 128MB               66AUH-AC   330-610 128MB               66AUJ-AC   340-610 128MB               66AUK-AC   350-610 128MB               66AUL-AC   360-610 128MB               64xx-66xx PATHS:               66AUA-AF   410-610               66AUN-AF   410-610 128MB               66AVB-AF   420-610 128MB               66AUH-AF   430-610 128MB               66BUJ-AF   440-620 128MB               66BUK-AF   450-620 128MB               66BUL-AF   460-620 128MB               65xx-66xx PATHS:               66AUA-AK   510-610               66BUA-AK   520-620               66CUA-AK   530-630               66DUA-AK   540-640               66EUA-AK   550-650               66FUA-AK   560-660       When ordering one of the upgrade packages, be sure that the       Alpha Ready part number (7HAWA-HN) appears on the quote.  The       cost is $141,418 and is non-discountable.       Customers are required to order and take delivery of the       applicable VAX upgrade by July 3, 1993 to lock in the Alpha       upgrade price.  Customers must take delivery of the Alpha AXP       upgrade no later than July 2, 1994.       Alpha-ready upgrades include hardware and operating system       software installation, one-year Digital standard warranty,       trade-in credit for the returned VAX 6000 system,       deinstallation, packing and transportation back to Digital.       Customers can keep their VAX 6000 system for up to six months       after the Alpha AXP system is delivered to allow a smooth       transition.  3.0  CSSC Executive Board election results       The CSSC Executive Board election results have been compiled       and the results are as follows:                                               Terms       Bill Davis        Geneseo           7/1/93 - 6/30/96       Ruedi Lienhart    Syracuse HSC      7/1/93 - 6/30/96       Eric Wilson       Oneonta           7/1/93 - 6/30/95       Paul Voninski     Oswego            7/1/93 - 6/30/94  4.0  CSLG - Restatement of current policy       Located on the CSSC's SNYBSCVA machine's VAX Notes in the       X-DECTEI-L conference is Ellen Minter's Restatement of Current       policy of CSLG Software Support Services.
