if you want to talk "time-sensitive", remember your supplier (SI)
probably has an office open _somewhwere_...
At 22:00 in London UK, I have called Customer Support
in Cary,NC.- longer after UK Customer Support closes.
I expect there is an office in HK/Japan/Australia/NZ when/if
I need help later in the night.
As to IRC, I'm not sure how I can authenticate advice .......

Betreff: Re: IRC SAS Channel; also thanks to David Ward on object basedSAS
Lets say I have a problem and I send an email to SAS-L. But the program is
time sensitive and it has to be done yesterday. I might not get a response
right away. And if I do get a response, I might need more help with the
same program b/c the response wasn¹t helpful or I have more problems.
The IRC channel is not here to replace the SAS-L, it is here to offer 24/7
free support. There is nothing like real time answer so that I can say
"hold on a sec while I try that proc."
See what I mean? I am working on setting up a channel. The main people
will be ops (operators) of the channel, if they want to be. I will help
with the technical part in operating the channel.
As long as there are SAS programmers who work with an Internet connection
you can just leave the channel open.
