     A. Background

      In February 2004, the ITRC will integrate its email notification
      and subscription management services for Patch and Information
      Digests into HP Subscriber's Choice Driver & Support
      Alerts/Notifications. Following this integration, you will be
      able to receive patch and security information notifications
      along with driver and software updates and other HP support
      information all through one centralized subscription within
      Subscriber's Choice.

      Instead of selecting and maintaining Information Digests by
      category as done previously, you now just need to tell us the
      products and operating systems for which you are interested.
      Subscriber's Choice will then deliver information to you
      based upon your product and operating system selections.

      In addition, instead of delivering the entire document to you
      via email as before, HP will deliver a brief description with a
      viewable link for you to examine the document online.

      The Subscriber's Choice website provides you with a centralized
      accesspoint to all the latest subscriptions from HP as well as
      the ability to update your subscription profile at any time.
      Proactive email can be received as they are available, weekly or
      monthly. Most importantly, you can access a customized web page
      that displays your most recent driver, software and support
      information that is relevant to your products.

      If you wish to continue receiving notification of security
      bulletins, please register for Subscriber's Choice using
      the following url:


      The key changes from the existing notification service are:

      * New Simplified Email Format
