    Yep, It's Microsoft Tuesday again (Wednesday our time).

    There is a whole bunch of patches for XP & 2003, but the monthly email
    did'nt arrive. Is it just me or did noone get the email yet?

    I've had about 1 in the last 6 months! I've subbed with 2 addresses: one has
    received nothing and the other was the lucky one (once).

    They don't E-mails, they use the Auoto Update option that lists them in the
    System Tray..

    LOL wogor, go back to your Playstation - you silly little boy!

    I would explain it to you, but then you'll probably claim that email
    hasn't been invented yet.

    Ah, I guess they started late today? Ususally when someone receives
    one, the rest follow - I assume they're sent out alphabetically
    orsomething like that.

    FWIW, mine arrived at 10.50am and I haven't missed one since I signed up for
    the alert service (early last year IIRC)

    He's not trolling, it's just that as usual he is ignorant, and mistakenly
    thinks he knows what everyone else is talking about.

    Or that since email is sent on a server with a crap TM he refuses to accept
    it and is waiting for the latest and greatest email machine.
