One of my pet peeves about how some of the decisions are being made on Windows 8 is something I’m calling “coding via telemetry data”.  Check out the Windows 8 engineering blog and the cite via their CEIP data how many of their customers are doing thus and so.

Well every night I see this in my event logs.

A problem prevented Customer Experience Improvement Program data from being sent to Microsoft, (Error 80004005).

So tonight I decided to figure out why I’m not part of those telemetry numbers….

And found this:

A problem prevented Customer Experience Improvement Program data from being sent to Microsoft:

I love the answer… ignore it or disable it..

Interestingly enough… when you drill into the event log as per:

Event ID 1008 — CEIP Upload:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd349464(v=WS.10).aspx

It looks like it really did complete.

So maybe I am being counted after all?
