  • Thanks, I will just have to remember the extra level on the link. Wonder why they are making it less visable.

    I suspect because of the demise of the Office GA program, they decided that manual validation shouldn't be needed any more? (I wonder what the hit-rate for that page it?) All normal links to the page died on 17th Dec.
