Microsoft Activation Servers Down – October 10 2009

It’s SOD’s law that if anything can go wrong it will!

I’m trying to upgrade a customer’s machines today from office 2003 to office 2007 with Business Contact Manager. We deliberately scheduled it out of hours so that it wouldn’t interfere with their regular work. But the GODs are against me because I can’t activate the darn software as Microsoft Activation is down for maintenance!

No problem you might say – use the phone activation – OH YEAH RIGHT I’ll just type in the handy 54 digit code and then wait for the 54 digit reply! I mean COME ON there has to be a better way for phone activation? I’ve got 15 Machines to do!
