So test accounts are kept on the live server?
I thought Microsoft was "full of really talented people," not rank amateurs.
Microsoft's Hotmail saw the New Year in with a whimper, after thousands of its users were unable to access their web-based email accounts. Yesterday the company explained what went wrong, offered a relatively minor apology given the scale of the cockup, and said it would endeavor to prevent similar mistakes in the future. …
Microsoft is "full of really talented people". It's just that none of those talented people work on Microsoft NOTmail.
I think that we already know that Microsoft NOTmail isn't managed by Engineers - it's managed by public relations people.
Hotmail can't get any worse - can it?
Hmm, you're quite a bit out of date.
Maybe, ten years ago, you'd have had a point. But Powershell has been around for some time now and if you've installed the bare-bones version of Windows server (without a GUI) the ONLY way you can manage it is via scripting. And very effective it is too!
I'm the first to admit it's taken them far too long to get there but if you're going to criticise at least check if your opinion is still applicable before ranting.
Hotmail users get what they should expect based upon what they pay for it. Why should Microsoft treat Hotmail users with any respect ? To the extent the commercial logic of this facility suggests Microsoft should give any Hotmail stakeholder respect, they should care about their customers i.e. those who pay the bills in exchange for being served the attention and (barely) anonymised personal data of the users.
Hotmail's users are the commodity being sold to their customers.
New Years??? I have not been able to get into my acount since July 2010. I get the sqiggly letters to dicifer and do but it will not let me in, so then I go to change my password. My secret question is not my question and the email that my password gose to I dont have. recently (since 9/2010) I get a email eveeryonce in while giving me a pin and to go to the 'priviteforum'. Ever try to find the 'privite forum'?
I am ready to go to 'wikileaks' and see what they can do!!!!!
I was told that what caused my Aspire One portable to keep hanging during boot-up was a faulty power supply .. – the culprit was the software .. Acer shipped the Acer Aspire One with a version of the Linpus Lite Linux OS .. there’s no denying that Redmond knows how to develop and maintain reliable software – mostly – that you can trust.
"on the software vendor's increasingly tarnished Hotmail service."
It's so bad, i've moved to Gmail and it's much better =]
It loads faster, is more customizable, doesn't crash nearly half as much as Hotmail, can sync with my phone better and is generally enjoyable to use, whereas Hotmail has become a chore.
