I posted this earlier, but I was doing some computer work with a test
Netware server and I ended up getting a date of Jan.1, 2000 configured on my
computer, so that's what the posting went out as. So here I go again.
I'm finishing a padauk table top and am using Varathane Diamond Wood Finish,
semi-gloss outdoor in the hopes of delaying the loss of color of the padauk.
The problem I'm having is the dry time. While it says that drying times
will vary, of course, I'm having trouble with it still being tacky 12 or
more hours later. I'm in Chicago, and the humidity has been up and down the
past couple of days, but I wouldn't expect the drying time to be this long.
The last coat was wiped on, so I don't think it's a matter of putting down
too much. Any ideas?
I was brushing the waterbased gloss this evening, and having the opposite
problem. It was curing too fast to be able to tip it off properly. We
were, however, likely still above the recommended temperature range for
application. I'm just not terribly patient. I want this project OFF MY
BENCH! There are more interesting things to do than wait for finish to
cure. So I'm guessing you're using the oil-based product...
BTW, I didn't think anyone used much Netware anymore. I haven't done a
server since about 1995, after having done maybe several hundred since

I guess I assumed that the outdoor flavor implied oil-based, but in case it
doesn't, it is indeed oil-based.
As for Netware, I guess we're seeing a smallish resurgence in interest. If
you don't know, Novell recently acquired SuSE linux and I think that has
generated some interest. In any case, the company needs someone to get up
to date on their CNE and since I'm the only engineer with a CNE in my
location, I drew the short straw. What the hell version of Netware were you
installing in '83? Netware 1.0 didn't even come out until '88. According
to my sources, Netware 68 came out in '83, and it didn't even support ArcNet
until a year later. If you were working with that stuff, you are some kind
of mega-geek ;-).
I did an S Net server in '83, and started doing a lot of Arcnet when it
became available. In my files is a copy of the second newsletter they
published. It was a pretty small company back then.
The other note to remember is that Vida Blue and Nolan Ryan were contending
for Cy Young Awards back in those days. Today, they sell Advil, and do
promotional tours. 25 years is a LONG time to stay on the bleeding edge of
technology. I sell and manage these days.
Good luck with both of your products.
