    October 16 Patch (W97)

    I was reading some recent issues of WOW and thought Woody was ironizing when saying you had to call MS to get the October 16 patch... I'm not used to Knowledge-Base surfing, but if this is the article (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...-us;330080&) then you REALLY gotta contact them in order to get the patch.
    Now the question: if as common sense suggests it's an .exe file, isn't there an easier way to grab it? <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    Thanks in advance

    See the threads starting at <post#=189522>post 189522</post#> and <post#=207252>post 207252</post#>. The site mentioned in the first thread doesn't seem to be available any more

    Hans, thanks for your prompt response.

    As you say, the ftp site is no longer available. The second thread's ending is not very encouraging, as poor lil' Eileen is left in the cold clinging to her will to succeed and keeping faith in God's benevolence as her only option...

    But that ain't happenin' to ME.... right? <img src=/S/please.gif border=0 alt=please width=31 height=23>

    Seriously, this is terribly annoying... <img src=/S/ranton.gif border=0 alt=ranton width=66 height=37> Got to know your data can be disclosed to strangers by opening a Word document? Good thing, 'cause MS wouldn't have told ya. Now, don't feel ripped off, MS has maide available a patch for everyone to download... all you have to do is guess the web address. C'mon! Who taught these guys customer satisfaction? Aren't computers supposed to make things easier? Why use the phone!!!!???? <img src=/S/rantoff.gif border=0 alt=rantoff width=66 height=37>

    Sorry, if someone has the link that works, please post back.
