COOL! Get a hotfix -- without having to call Microsoft...

This is so cool, Microsoft Support finally made more sense for non-public hotfixes. You now can obtain a hotfix without having to interact with a single soul ( no phone calls etc.. )  Easy and convenient.

Take for example my previous post for the netlogon DCR - 928576  which doesnt even have a public article yet.  Try it...

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;928576   

It errors out - no such article.

But - thanks to the Big Brainers ( seriously ) who think about our customers and really do care about their experience  .. you can now simply go to thisURL and download most any fix

https://support.microsoft.com/contactus2/emailcontact.aspx?scid=sw;en;1410&WS=hotfix

You will get a form mail in response, and in it will be a link to the http site you can download the fix from.
