Today I tried logging into to MSN Messenger from work only to receive the following message (emphasis added):
Apparently they don't use spell check at Microsoft. Either way the message was useless... and had nothing to do with the actual problem which was the fact that they updated MSN Messenger due to a security bug... and didn't really post anything about it anywhere. I went to MSN and downloaded a new copy of the client (even though they didn't have anything that said... oh... I don't know... NEW version needed to connect!) I installed it and was back up and running again.
How hard could it be to have intelligent error messages?
