    Somewhat unrelated, but the login to the MCP member site has been down for at least 2 days, is anyone working on this? The error occurs when going to , error occurs immediately.. can't even get to the logon.

    Server Error in '/Authenticate' Application.

    Runtime Error
    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

    <customErrors mode="Off"/>

    It works fine for me, and has been working the past few times that I've tried to login over the past week. I keep checking back for results of the 71-669 exam, which apparently are never coming.

    On a related unrelated note, is so hit and miss these days that it's practically a joke. It seems like I can only connect on 1 out of 5 attempts. That's better than last week when it was completely unavailable, but come on.

    Maybe you guys should talk to these guys:

    Is something wrong with the LiveMeeting servers?? I've been trying to connect to this meeting and it kept saying "A serious error has occurred and you are being disconnected from this LiveMeeting." And now it says "The information you entered was not recognized, or you do not have permission to join this meeting."

    The meeting is working. But we have had scattered reports of the same error. Please keep trying to enter the Live Meeting, or try restarting. If for any reason you cannot connect, we will be posting the recording link.

    Thanks, glad I wasn't the only one even if we don't know why it happened at all. I tried a joining dozen times, I tried updating my LiveMeeting software, I tried running a command suggested in the MS KB... nothing.

    In addition to posting a recording, please also post the slides deck, preferably as a PDF (as I've been able to save within LiveMeeting in the dozens of past meetings I've attended) in addition to PPT.

    And please similarly provide a recording and slides PDF for the "Certification 201" LiveMeeting, which I am now similarly unable to attend.
