Make2Pack ISA88 Part 5 List Server is under Construction; return

List server integration. Travels. Comment and review prior issues.

03/29/2010


Hello friends and fellow bloggers! I’m back from another northern adventure. I’ve been driving the ALCAN from Fairbanks to Denver for several days and was out of touch while in transit. Please comment on prior issues I’ve called out (see links below), and we can continue discussions, after about 4,700 miles of driving. Upon returning, I discovered my personal home-made “list-server” for the Make2Pack group stopped working, and my messages have not been getting out. Sorry. ISA is working to get the official List Server up and running, and I do hope it will happen soon, as my efforts have proven to be inconsistent. We cancelled the March 18 call, and my message appears to have missed most of you, and I apologize about that.For the 112 who have asked to be involved, I’ll let you know when the ISA server is operational to verify contact information was successfully installed. I will send out information later about the April 6 call scheduled at 1 p.m. Eastern and the April 22 call scheduled at 9 a.m. Thanks for being part of the group and for your support to help integrate information from process control, batch control, and machine control.
