If you care, you might want to check out:
I'm always updating firmware on older alphas and I've noticed this site
has undergone some changes lately. I've also noticed that HP's web sites
have been absolutely trashed for a couple of years now. However, now many
alpha related searches return 0 results on most of their portals. When you
do find something, it's often a dead link. Many of the Tru64 pages are all
a broken link, broken CSS, shambles.
Anyhow, my trust in HP is at an all-time-low (more than I even knew was
possible after I got my whopping $26 dollar settlement for them ripping
folks off on ink cartridges and getting class-action-sued for it).
Unsurprisingly, they can't even run a website anymore, and even the FTP
site seems to be feeling the shake up (directories moving around, things
obviously undergoing some major changes). So, you might want to grab
whatever you need off the post-Fiorina walking corpse of HP before they go
full zombie and eat their own brains and lose everything. There are
patches, firmware etc... many things their management would probably
remove if they were literate enough to know they still had them online in
an undamaged form (folks so often forget about FTP).
