The server hosting these pages is broken. It's returning "404 Not Found" to
HEAD requests in violation of the HTTP specification.

These are the same customers you are referring to whom Microsoft thought
would need MS Bob and the Talking Paperclip?   One thing is to give them

running on a rand(time) countdown... Is that really wise? - Me to MS rep.
