No, I _know_ the Hobbyist program will go away. People like HP and Compaq
are starting to layoff people who they actually still have a use for in
order to cut costs. What's the ROI on the Hobbyist program? Zilch! So it
gives them some good press but it also causes their operations folks to get
calls from folks who are trying to find spares for machines they never
heard of. So they will kill it, I just hope they give out lifetime PAKs
before they do.
