Subject Re: connections to old update services now
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2011 17:46:19 GMT

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I understand the service itself can not be
rebuilt, and I also realize this is probably something hard-coded in the
program. Since I don't know how it's referenced internally, I was just
wondering if a "dummy" service could be setup that might just DO something,
if only to alert the user that it is no longer in service.

This would entail the infrastructure folks on some level and setting up a
"VM". SO, maybe too much overhead to deal with right now, I guess.
