Wayne:

That's pretty much what I expected. It astounds me that a week is considered 
even rational, much less acceptable. I've realized that I'm going to call for 
my 170 at home just so I'll have a SUID in case I need it. Once I've got the 
procedure clear, I'm going to request one for each system at work as well. And 
I have to suggest that this be done by everyone as a standard DR action item.

Very much appreciate the info.


Art:

A web site... from IBM... well...

Raised my spirit when I first saw your post. Then immediately felt wary. But, 
what the hey? Might as well give it a shot. Can't _possibly_ be worse than 
trying to place an order.

Status: It's been a few hours since my first attempt. It still gives the same 
result (Netscape and IE) -- a page that says:

"Error

Sign in could not be completed. The server might be unavailable at the moment. 
Please try again."

The navigation bar on that page has links that go only back to the same logon 
page. All other links are plain, old, everyday IBM Home, Products&Services, etc.

Give the IBM ID blurb on the right, I can only assume I should use my ***NEW! 
IMPROVED! ONE SIZE FITS ALL!*** IBM ID. Nowadays it's the only one I have.

Abandon hope all ye...
