Remember this the next time you talk to M$ Tech-support. and hopefully you won't get this guy leaving messages on your answering machine...

Microsoft Tech Support Center India

You will need to have a MS Media Player or plugin on a mac to see this. I didn't have much luch viewing it on my ibook, so you might need to view it on a pc. But it is worth it. Laughing out loud

So, I just uploaded a file that I was going to link to here, but I have no idea where it went. When it finished uploading, all I got was a refresh fo the main page with a message added at the top of the main box that said the file was added successfully. I'm at a loss as to how to find where it went.

Thanks for the fix.

That's a message I had a few years ago. How she managed to get through the message, the beep, and then start talking right away, and not realize that she was not talking to a live human I do not know.

And she didn't say my name right, but at least she butchered it in a semi-understandable fashion. That doesn't fit well with the message...
