Yeah, so effin' what? Show me the content that used to be there.
"Check the Microsoft Product Lifecycle page for information about how this product, service, technology or API is supported".
No, just show me the page that used to be there. It existed at one point. I don't care that you no longer support the product.
I understand Microsoft's desire to move its documentation to "better" (ahem) systems over time, but what would it cost them to leave older pages exactly where they are? It's like what's no longer current no longer exists. Or they're trying their best to pretend it never existed in the first place. Enough with this already.
Even the old MSDN archive CDs were better than this.
Try one of the many links to an MSDN blog which are "in the wild". The content is archived but still there, so you'd think they'd redirect you to the archived version, right?
Wrong. They redirect you to the "Archived MSDN and TechNet Blogs" page[^], with a list of letters to select the first name of the blog you were looking for. You then have to search through multiple pages of the blogs starting with that letter to find the blog you want, and then search through the archived posts from that blog to find the post you were looking for.
It's not rocket science. All they had to do was redirect:
What you can do to get around this is... We're no longer updating this content regularly.

People need to learn how to mic themselves properly, or at least balance their sound. I adjusted the volume in the first few seconds so the (unnecessary) intro music was ok, but then I could barely hear her speak, so I had to crank my speakers to the point where, after I had forgotten all about it, the music came back during these short interludes and I almost fell out of my chair. Good thing I'm not working in an office.
It's not just the amateurs either; these days even so-called professional presenters, who are used to being on network TV, are busy virtue-signaling by staying at home and doing their shows from some poorly lit room and sounding like they have their heads in a bucket. On national TV. If I was working in that field, I'd be embarrassed.
To me a "personal pizza" means you don't share it with others.
To me, that's the same as any pizza. I never share my pizzas!
