Challenge can be good sometimes
« on: January 21, 2013, 06:31:52 PM »
                          1

A friend told me today, "Every day is a new adventure."

I agreed.

I called Microsoft to voice a complaint about the disrespectful treatment by the moderator at http://www.msfn.org/board/forum

I told Microsoft the web address and they mentioned a "third party website".

I asked to talk to someone and...

The customer service rep gave me the number of the legal department and told me they were open 24 hrs./day. :-)

I sent an email to Xper who is the SuperModerator, but he did not respond.

It's my feeling that when you buy something from someone,(in my case Dos 6.0,XP,Office,etc.) you should be treated courteously.

I am not giving up.

Take care,

But, as MS did already tell you, msfn.org is not a Microsoft thing.

Good - this case has a flair of "Don Quixote", though.

MSFN is a good site - there are a lot of very knowledgeable people over there

i wouldn't take it too hard if they are a bit impatient with a newbie (to their realm, at least)
as for Xper, he may not have logged in, in the last couple days
don't expect a response right away - these guys aren't paid to log in or to respond

MSFN is not associated with microsoft
in fact, they are probably not looked on too kindly by ms - lol
but - if you want tools that are sometimes required to slipstream or rebuild an OS, they are the best source

if you think they're rude, i strongly suggest you stay away from osdev.org   :lol:

I haven't been to osdev.org.

I asked for help at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vcgeneral/threads since C is fairly close to assembly.

They posted some Vista code for my XP (??)  and said that XP will no longer be supported.
