The essential guide to IT transformation

Microsoft Product Support Services. HOWTO: Read the Fucking Manual.

The information in this article applies to:

  • General Lamers

Prerequisites:


  • The ability to Read
  • Basic Brain Function


It's a spoofed URL of course, purportedly heading to www.microsoft.com but ending up at www.hwnd.net - see the little "@" sign? However, that doesn't detract from the fact that it's funny and that we've been bombarded with emails asking us to put it up for wider enjoyment.

And so, here it is. References at the bottom include: HOWTO: Apply for employment with McDonalds, HOWTO: Add a #, + or .Net to your old software to keep it cutting edge and HOWTO: Read. There are also other gems on the Hwnd site (we like the OS poll on the opening page).

It's Friday so we suggest you check it out and have a chuckle. ®
