I finally made it to the Front Page! Thing is, the way I wrote the post, when it was auto-emailed to me that; "Someone has replied to "support(at)microsoft.com" at AOA,  the link became active! LOL (actually it's not so funny) Obviosuly I didn't follow it, but I made sure to place quotes around it, so other's won't be confounded.

BTW I know were not supposed to have URL's in our Sig, but the way I linked to my 3DMark scores, is that OK? And could I place the title of my webpage "Brainstorms" on my sig with same?

(3DMark2001SE / 2003) links are OK
Other links in signatures not OK":O}

Sorry others wise their are those who would turn our signatures into billboards for their sites, so we have to draw the line somewhere. Only site related URLs and 3DMark2001SE

man, I got hammered with this one yesterday, seems like its dying down a bit now. It was awful nice of them to make it a .PIF file so it was easily identifiable

ya, I saw the .pif right away and made a filter for it. looks like 19 yesterday and 3 today so far.

unfortunatly some of my clients have WAY too much trust in anything with the MS name on it

But if it comes from the but* of The Bill, it has to be good. Funny thing, the preceeding sentence could have been true. Ultra greed messes up the world.
Ya think, cloasters?
