Tried logging in with the same email and password I do for sourcelink, no
But, then, I never got the invite, either :)
Guess I'm too much of a "squeeky wheel" :D

Yes, I indeed did. I apologize for that. Just got back from ICU and I am
trying to get through all the emails. I 
guess I got to slow down a little...... 

Here is my take on these new forums: 

I am signed up on these new forums and I think they are more or less an
addition to the existing customer 
support tools. You need to have a sourcelink account in order to sign up
which means you need 
to be a paying customer. I think this is just to get customers to solve
other customers issues (sorry for being blunt). 

There were some very interesting discussions at ICU this year in regards to
customer support and other related issues. 
Without getting into much details, Cadence is very interested in becoming
more customer focused and get more involved with 
customers. I think we can expect some changes here and there for the better.
I had conversations  with users and people from Cadence 
in regards to a customer advisory commitee, open user forums, etc etc... 

There is a lot going on and I promise that we will keep all of you in the

It was very nice to see that 36% of all users at ICU came from the PCB end
(5% from this forum). I hope to bring this number above 45-50% next year. 
We will start an ICU PCB SIG survey next month in order to collect your
ideas, thoughts and wishes for ICU 2005. This will help us 
make the conference next year even more successfull than this year. This is
going to be though, because this year really rocked. 
The technical content was outstanding. 

Stay tuned for more......

I think you misunderstood Patrick.  I received an email from Cadence 
that they are starting a support group:


I believe that was what his email was about.
