Cannot read forum posts RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can create posts (like this one). But whenever I go to click on a post, I get:

    The system is temporarily unavailable due to system maintenance. We thank you for your patience and apologize for the incovenience. Please try again later.

    For the latest headlines and to see what’s new, visit the MSDN home page.

    Check out the various MSDN Developer Centers where you can find the latest product information, technical resources and community offerings. Visit the MSDN Library for the latest technical articles, reference documentation, downloads and more.

    Browse to MSDN Forums to get fast answers for technical questions or use the search option below to find out other relevant resources.

    And so I can't read any posts - and I need the answers posted. What can I do to read them? And please email me how to do this at - because I will not be able to read your response here.

    thanks - dave

  • I've just arrived here and have the same problem. I believed the message once, even twice, but after trying for two days on and off, I tried Opera and that works - as does Firefox, and Safari - it's just IE(7) that fails. The actual error message seems to vary randomly between the one quoted above and "Sorry, we were unable to service your request. Please try again later."
