    Another problem with the partner forums?!

    Here’s one you haven’t mentioned, Susan:

    See the “Recently Published Knowledgebase Articles” link there? It’s been dead for weeks. It used to be a handy A-Z list of RSS feeds for MS products….

    Oh nevermind that’s broken too.

    or maybe not –
    the page is all messed up but the scribing to the RSS feed still works.

    Nevermind, the rss sucking in doesn’t work. Okay I love my RSS feeds so I’ll alert the troups about that one.

    It’s locked because it’s currently migrating to new platform.

    With no announcement ahead of time? Not a good way to perform an upgrade.

    Thanks for inquiring about RSS. I hope you know someone who can do something about it, but I’m not holding my breath. I’m still trying to get dates and version numbers moved back to the top of KB articles, and you see how well I’ve done with that. Whoever had the brilliant idea to put it at the bottom should be taken out back and given a stern talking to.
