Here we go.

I haven’t ranted in a while. And i’m about to begin. Let’s just focus all our energy on Windows Live Spaces.

So here goes.

I’ve had that lil blog of mine ( for as long as i can remember. Before blogger, before wordpress, before any of these new kids came out to play. It was

GODKNOWSHOWMANY posts i put in there over so many years.. feelings, memories, creativity…

Who was to know one fine day around a decade later they would say

‘Sorry, as of March 30th, 2011 all Windows Live Spaces have been closed…get your ass over to wordpess’ or something to that effect…

So simple, done, dusted. Reminds me of talking to peons in the government offices in India.

But this is Windows.

Going through their help sites was awful. With the first message that anyone got being:

‘Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party.’

Wow, that’s a good feeling to start with. Welcome to the Gaza Strip of the internet.

After all the frantic searching, they had only one final solution to people with problems like mine.

‘For any issues surrounding your move, please visit support here.’

Here’s the stats on the wordpress support page –

‘Suspended blogs’
1.blah blah blah blah…

2.blah blah blah blah…

3.blah blah blah blah..


Are you satisfied with the responses above?

106: Yes
449: Fuck no

Wonderful customer satisfaction eh!

Anyways, so much for property rights and creativity. That’s why Steve Jobs will always make Gates seem like an idiot. Cos he hires idiots.

Oh, here’s the interesting part! i googled blogsite reviews to figure whom to rant on next. And Windows live spaces was 7th in a list of 10 for 2011!

Fucking Congratulations!!!

Now i’m on wordpress.

Fuck my life.
