Never to late to join. SQI appears to be an interesting solution.

The type of solution that is being looked at something that can be
autonomous, as you noted. Also something that can will be able to
stand the test of time. There are a couple we programs that are being
evaluated. One being Request Tracker and Trellis Desk. Both are actively
developed and customizable.

A comparison would be appreciated. Any other suggestions are more than
welcome.

Thank you, Bigpaws. I'll ask our resident techies to look at Request Tracker and Trellis Desk.

Hi. I am the founder of SQI Inc. We  are an on-demand solutions provider (SaaS) for the support infrastructure at the Client Interface Environment (CIE). Or core strategy is to establish a new value point by being an open source integrator.

As part of my commitment to the open source community I would like to offer to host your support site at no charge.

btw. The Incident Manager part of CIE is RT with extensions. The Knowledge Hub parts are Moinmoin and the search engine is Apache Lucene. All are integrated with our AppBus technology.

Let me know if you are interested. I can setup an evaluation site if you want to move forward.

I any event, it is great to see such a dedicated and active community pushing open source technology.

Ok, the counter issue is solved with trellis 6 and a little tweak on the script, I guess this mark as done the "disallow access for expired accounts" feature. I move in to the cache issue. I guess the gateaway will be next and last to do a final evaluation over trellis desk. I have no much hope on this because we need to touch the madtux system or the paypal one as exeter suggested. Is possible a script takes data form an email? I guess that could be a way to automate this. Trellis has the option of manual validating an acoount by an admin or staff member, I guess we can ask for the user to register himself in order to activate his support account, and then manually validate the request once we check the payment.

the sqi system looks good to me.

I saw the thread and the site, and looks nice. I thougth we was not looking for an on-demand system. The overviews in the site looks good. I cant say any else because there is no demo or something like that. I understand is a paid service so, if we can pay it, lets try it. I am able to test it and give my point of view if is needed.

I think is a great idea, whatever would be the final choice, to do a demo run with the staff, and a few members of this forum could act as "customers", so we can see how the hole thing will work.

Just checking your ads at MadTux, for the VL-100 and VL-330. I guess I can understand why you don't have a link to VL's home page, but I wonder why you can't promote the great qualities of Vector Linux in the ad copy. Like VL being lightning fast, doing everything out of the box, and being rock-solid stable. Will you be giving the buyer a copy of the VL install CD? If so, it isn't clear that you will do so. Maybe get a facsimile of the VL CD available thru CD Store, presumably with Masta's artwork, and display that on the page, in the same manner that MadTux displays Ubuntu and Suse CDs with other models it sells.

Good Points. I have masta's work but we are using our origonal label now due to time constraints when we released. I will ask Madtux about that.
