Haha. No. I was thinking more that NI might not be happy about some stuff being known outside of management ;)

It's not even under consideration, work has been commited for creating the offline authorization tool to be used by NI support. So, those discontinued products will still be possible to activate, but not through Native Access or Service Center.
I havent figured out why youd get downvotes on that post, but I think its great that NI is quick to commit to some compromise. :tu:

What intentions, now? All intentions regarding this situation have been said through Matt and me here. There is nothing malicious behind any of the decisions taken.

I don't think you know what the word you're typing means. Or even type it properly. :P

If you wouldn't call the intial decision (to discontinue activation) malicious, then what would you call it? Data driven? ;)

Yea I know.
And maybe it is the lawyer they eventually spoke to about the EULA that advised them to not drag their feet getting this going..
But, its still a little surprising to see 'corporate' react with any kind of speed, or positive solutions...

A scene from NI General Hospital:

Woman asks, “Doctor, my husband is on life support, will he make it?”

Doctor responds, “Well.. he would, but he is taking slightly too long to recover and we really need the life-support machine for newer patients with more medical coverage. This is the new official policy from the medical director. However, to accomodate you, we will give you three coupons to our cafeteria for 25% off your next purchase. Market data shows this is the most effective solution. Thank you for your understanding, visiting hours are now over. “
SLH - Yes, I am a woman, deal with it.
