microsoft system for feedback to programmers

Somebody in M$ Europe has a sense of humour:

Unfortunately they have screwed it up by requiring a M$ Live ID, so you’ll have to go through the pain of making one. And it only seems to work using M$ Internet Explorer. And after you have logged in you need to search for the presentation by MAURO MEANTI.

Arrggh. Make sure you use the low bandwidth option. It uses the poxy M$ media player and the high bandwidth option does not seem to buffer the video properly.

It’s worth the effort.

EDIT: for those who can’t speak techno:

M$ = Microsoft.

Click on the link above. Use Internet Explorer (dont try in a different browser like Firefox).

Then you have to make a microsoft Live! ID if you don’t already have one. Click on the PLAY FULL thingy (or similar name). Follow their various prompts. About 1/2 hour later when you have your MS Live! ID, then come back here, click on the link above again.

When you get to the place it takes you, click the “Low Bandwidth” label on the screen. Hunt. It might take a while to find it.

Then login into their hideous site using your fresh sparkly new MS Live! ID. Then use the search options to search for a presentation by Mauro Meanti.

Then eventually you will be able to play the video.

Then go and scream about how hard they made it for you.

haha I only understood about 30% of this post; words like properly and presentation. The rest is English but I can’t make heads nor tails of it :)
