[THIN] Re: MF and SP4 - Beggin for help

First of all, many thanks to Jarred for the hotfixes, we'll install them
today on the test environment just to make sure everything is fine, deploy
to the production servers and life will be good again! Thanks Jarred!
 
But before closing the issue I'll pitch in my .02 of rant on M$: yes it may
be easy to get the hotfixes in the USA, Canada, Europe, but for me over here
(Colombia) it was a real pain. Yesterday I talked to 8 different people from
Microsoft and their "Support Partners" and at the end of the day I never got
the hotfixes. The only way I could have gotten them was by paying one of the
"Support Partners" US$200 for a couple of hotfixes....
 
At the end of the day, I was not a happy chap, but again, the THIN saved my
day. So I think most of you will agree that this list is a better support
tool than any Microsoft or MS Support Partner support contract.
 
Again, many many thanks.

That is simply not true... Microsoft will not charge to tell they reconize
the problem and it's a defect.  In fact the opposite is true.  If they
reconize that the problem is a defect/bug with the product, they will NOT
charge you for the incident.

disable printer mapping and see if your users can ... once again ... logon
quickly. Since M$ charges an outrageous amount of $$$ to tell you that they
recognise that they have a problem with their defective product; I decided
to
wait until someone else is courageous enough to beta their hot fixes. I'm
now
getting fairly fast at rolling back to the last "known good" configuration
and/or doing a complete new build.
