Thanks to a couple of testers (pebuaa and Joe), Jeff Cardon patched his make subpage addin to work in section groups. Update as of 3/12/2009 - the download link is at the end of this blog entry after my signature. I'm marking the next paragraph NA - winisp is no more...
A few people have been having intermittent problems with this domain. Winisp is a site run by a team here at Microsoft and we get to use the server for free. We all know there is no such thing as a free lunch, though, and the price we pay is providing feedback for the different configurations the team applies to the server. And there are some weird problems as well that crop up from time to time. ZIP files getting "corrupted" is an error I'm still trying to isolate. For now, using Firefox to download the files seems to work well, but IE sometimes reports they are corrupt. Embarrassing? Yes. Is there something we can do to get around the problem? Again, yes. Use Firefox - and file a bug against IE :( .
So here's is what I need to do to get started trying to find this bug.
We'll see what I can find. If anyone has experienced problems, details about step 3 would be great!
Comments, questions, concerns and criticisms always welcome,
PS: Quick comment on the Lenovo: I was just getting ready to turn it into a lab machine for performance testing (at which point the screen behavior, broken latches, etc… are immaterial to the running automation) when the orange battery light started flashing. Yep, it had one of the recalled batteries. A coworker had a battery from Dell which got recalled: Dell sent him a replacement and a postage paid envelope to mail the old battery back for free recycling. Lenovo sent me a new battery in a thrice used box and a letter encouraging me to be responsible and recycle the battery on my own. My city charges a fee to recycle computer equipment, and I think I'm going to be out $5 if I wanted to handle this myself, or Microsoft will be out $5 if I bother to bring the bad battery to them.
The Gateway is working great!
