in thread Windows, .NET and a language named Perl


so here i am,

going to the site you suggest, because i would like to know more and i keep getting forwarded to a "smart" 404 page. So rather than that, i try going to http://www.microsoft.com/net to see if there are any links there that might get me where i want to go. Funny enough, check out the graphic in the upper-left hand corner. mircosoft.com.

Now, i find this strikingly amusing, since the name microsoft(tm) is so well known that every school child knows how to spell it. Except that someone did misspell it. On their home page. i'm still waiting for the page to load. Did it get hacked? No, doesn't look like. i know it's nitpicky, but with a company as large as Microsoft, they can't afford image loss, even over trivial matters. Or so i guess.

Anyway, thought that was amusing. As a note, it appears that information loads fine here.

update: Hmmm, that's not a graphic, it's text (my curiosity got the better of me and i looked at the source). The misspelling isn't as painful if it's only text (considering the thousands of lines of text they have to input manually)...
