[802SEC] Fwd: 1 Week delay on note posted to reflector


Enclosed is an example, with date stamps, of a message to an 802 reflector that I received today. Please note that the delivery delay was only a half an our short of ONE FULL WEEK!

If this were a single instance occurrence it would be, perhaps, excusable but this has been going on for an extended length of time. My records show first e-mails on the topic over 9 weeks ago.

It is obvious that this is not acceptable and that an e-mail system that performs at this level can not be considered to be meeting the reasonable expectations that IEEE members have for conducting business by e-mail. In this case, the meeting in question had been scheduled for Tuesday, April 29, the day before the message finally arrived.

Please advise us on what we can do to remedy this situation or how you are prepared to bring IEEE mail service to an acceptable and useful level. It is my belief that if you can not provide a satisfactory response then we will have no choice but to make other arrangements.

Regarding hotels near the (potential) meeting site, both the:
Hilton Santa Clara              (new, about 1 year old)
4949 Great American Parkway
Santa Clara, CA

The Westin Santa Clara
5101 Great America Pkwy
Santa Clara, CA

are within easy walking distance (between 5 & 8 minutes) of Nortel (they are immediately north at the corner of Tasman & Gt America). Both of them are also immediately adjacent to a streetcar stop to take you to either downtown San Jose or downtown Mountain View. I know the Hilton has a free airport shuttle. The Westin doesn't seem to.

Also within walking distance to the south is:
Santa Clara Marriott    (free airport shuttle to/from San Jose)
2700 Mission College Boulevard
(at the corner of Great America Parkway)
Santa Clara, CA 95054

Phone: 408 988 1500
Fax: 408 727 4353

Holiday Inn     (free airport shuttle to/from San Jose)
SANTA CLARA, CA 95054-1210
Toll-Free: 1800-5865691
Tel: 1-408-2358900
Fax: 1-408-9880976
After these four you pretty much will need a car unless you come from some less obvious and more distant hotel and take public transit. There are an enormous number of hotels in the area that service both the business needs of Silicon Valley and the recreational travelers to Great America Amusement Park (next door to us). Of the 3 above I would say they all are typical business grade hotels and you should pick from them based on what sort of web deal you can get. The Holiday Inn caters to a more recreational crowd.

I hope this helps.
