Social Bookmarking Ticker

Recently the MSDN and TechNet teams released a social bookmarking preview where members of the technical community can bookmark and tag online resources for their own use and for the benefit of others.   You can visit any of the following sites to get started. 

MSDN for Developers 

TechNet for IT Professionals 

Expression for Designers

Along with the launch of the bookmarking service, we have also created a Silverlight app that we call “Ticker”, built using Silverlight 2 beta to consume the feeds of social bookmarks created by the community.  The ticker runs through recently added bookmarks and as you hover over a bookmark, the ticker will momentarily pause.  This is just one of a family of cool new “community visualizer” applications found at

    Namaste Soma,

    The URL: was giving error for the past 24 hours.

    "Sorry, we were unable to service your request. Please try again later."

    Wondering if this is the correct URL.

    Hi Vijay.  For a brief time yesterday we had difficulties with one of the servers running our Social Bookmarking preview application.  It was fixed a short time later and all should be fine now.  If you have further problems please feel free to email me.

    Recently I purchased a supposedly valid, commercial licensed VS 2008 from an ebay seller. When it arrived, I became suspicious because it was just a burned CD with a photocopied license key. I called microsoft, and they finally connected me to someone who confirmed it was academic and not standard.

    Thus I am suing the seller.

    For the last two days I have been calling a half dozen microsoft numbers, piracy, license, cust. support, etc. and wasted several hundred dollars of my time trying to get someone to send me an email or other information to the effect that it is an academic key, as several of them verified. They refused to send me an email confirmation, it was always another number they wanted to connect to.

    None of my emails to piracy or whatever was answered.

    Apparently I will need to subpoena Microsoft to get the information.

    There should be a link somewhere to check on your licensed product to see of it is legit.

    I don’t see how Microsoft can compete when it takes hours and hours to get a simple answer.

    That guy that bought the VS 2008 off ebay; do not blame Microsoft for your ignorance/incompetence. You got a fake product off ebay- talk to ebay about it and they will give you a refund and reprimend the seller (assuming you are within the timeframe). Microsoft has 70,000 employees and probably a billion customers and that does not suit well to handling some guy buying a fake product. Even Microsoft counterfeit-department mainly handle large cases- something as big as Napster; not one dude buying software off ebay (and word- the last place to buy software if you are interested in "genuine"). Common sense would of has told you these. If it didn’t, but the VS 2008 down and walk away slowly… that stuff is way too powerful for you.
