Fun: Microsoft Users Need Your Help

Whilst checking that my entry about chmod was published correctly, I noticed the following Google Adword/Adsense being displayed on the page (it’s a “PSA”/Public Service Announcement one, which basically means I won’t get paid for any click thrus 🙁 ):

MSAA needs your support
to help people with
MS lead a better
life. Help us today!

Are MS (Microsoft) products really that bad that people with Microsoft need assistance this much?

(yeah, yeah, I know, it’s really for the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, but still 😉 And they’ve got a buggy website, Internet Explorer [yes, I know it’s an MS product itself, but I’m still at work] reports a number of “problems with layers”: an error I hadn’t seen before)

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
