    This must be a bit embarrassing for Paul...

    Going to http://www.winsupersite.com/ produces an error message:

    Server Error in / Application.

    That is a bit odd. I'm sure it's just some ISP or server trouble.

    Every site is apt to have problems now and then. Even MacRumors has issues sometimes.

    Paul Thurrott, the owner, is one of the biggest names in Windows blogging. He gets loads of inside info straight from Microsoft. He's got his own TWiT network podcast called Windows Weekly.

    By the way, it works fine for me. Doesn't mean much though since I've had issues every once in a while accessing the largest sites (amazon, google).

    Guess that explains it since I don't try to keep up with Windows too much
    I endure using it at work, but that's as much exposure as I want

    Thanks for explaining ... as I said, not missing anything.

    That's OK, I'd say that 50% of his "This Week in Windows" podcast is Apple related anyhow. ;)

    Paul mentioned that a week or two ago, he switched his blog over to a CMS. Before that, it was 100% hand-coded. Ewwwwww. So I'd expect him to have some issues with his site for a while (after switching over to a technology from the early 2000s). :D

    That is very true. I used to listen to his podcasts a little once in a while and they always mention Apple for some reason... :rolleyes:

    It's working again. Must have been a temporary glitch.
