Rumours? *

Dave Pattern posts a cryptic message on his blog:

Don't you just hate it when someone tells you that something major is about to happen, but you really don't want to repeat it because it might not be true and you'd just be spreading unfounded gossip. But, then again, it's so absolutely huuuuuuge that you can't find a hat big enough to keep it under? Anyway, something may (or may not) be about to happen that could rock your world.

Let's sit back, fasten our seatbelts, and see what happens in the next 48 hours in LibraryLand…

And he tags it "sirsidynix"...hmmmm ...what could the big news be?? Could SirsiDynix be acquiring another ILS company? Could another big merger be in the works? Could major changes becoming to the SD ILS? Monitor your feeds folks... this could be interesting!

8.0 has been killed. Dead.

That wouldn't be too far from the truth!

just more proof that adaptability and the ability to change and continue to learn is the most important skill we could have!

I saw this email from Dynix a few days ago. It has my Library director in a huff since they promised us Horizon 8 when we migrated a few months ago but had "issues" with it and, subsequently, started us on 7.x instead.

We're wondering what this means regarding the pricing rates (that we contracted for pertaining to 8.0) and training that we finished not so long ago (time and money). This is going to cost libraries that recently migrated a fortune...

From a technology perspective, it's a good thing. From a implementation and financial perspective it's a nightmare for those of us who just made the switch.
