Major Activities/ Meetings Completed

• Weekly Call

• Zuanarda Causey has replaced Gina Wilhite as the new Sales Representative for Memphis.

• Memphis has been doing internal training in preparation for go live.

• The auto backup script for EPS/Rooms was to have been tested this week. Alan is working with Norm Curl to reschedule.

• Memphis will proceed as though they will be going live on EPS/Rooms 2.1.3. If 2.2 is released between now and the go live date, Memphis will look at how much time there is between the release date and the go live date and determine at that time what version they will actually go live on. They would prefer to go live on 2.2.

• Alex Feng and Alan continue to discuss various EPS/Rooms issues.

• Paul stated that SVA has been tested and it performed as it should have.

Activities/ Meetings Scheduled for Next Week

• Weekly Call on Tuesday at 2:00 Central time. The conference number will be used for all future calls. This will be our final data call prior to the final load and Jennifer Hendrickson will be on the call.

• Continuing internal training and preparation for go live.

Outstanding Issues

• Per Norm Curl, a rewrite of the auto backup script was to have been put into place the week of 4/23 and tested the week of 4/30. Testing will be postponed to the week of May 14.

• Waiting on a response from Damon regarding why the Solaris daylight savings time patch had been applied to the test server but not production.

• Paul is continuing work with Damon on getting the IBM Infoprint configured as the system printer. IBM has put the ball backing our court on this issue saying that they do not have Solaris support on their side and they are saying that the problem Paul is experiencing is a Solaris issue.

• Steve Foster is continuing working with Pam LaPier on determining maintenance for years 2 – 5 for hardware maintenance, software maintenance, and subscription fees associated with the contract between SirsiDynix and the City of Memphis. She has all fees completed except for the Sun Equipment and is waiting on the final work on the V890 Gold support.
