Thank you for your response.
I’m sorry to inform you that the Windows Genuine server might be down for few days. I have escalate the issue to our Genuine team, kindly try to validate again on Tuesday 28 Aug 2007.
Thank you for contacting Microsoft Technical Support.
Burhanistan: It takes MS more than a day to restore their own servers. One would think a company with that much liquid green on hand would have every single piece of its server infrastructure mirrored in several places around the country. Bad PR. In other news, Server 2008 is kind of lame.
The architecture of the servers has single points of failure somewhere, and is poorly designedThere's something suspicious going on, resulting in this outage being related to something sinister (the "How can they know it'll be up Tuesday?" question)The systems engineers working on that operations group are inept and didn't think of how things could fail, how to design around failure cases, and then to have an emergency plan bringing the system completely online in N minutes/hours, as needed.
