microsoft @microsoftuk extends support for windows 7 from 2020 to 2023


“As previously announced, Windows 7 extended support is ending January 14, 2020. While many of you are already well on your way in deploying Windows 10, we understand that everyone is at a different point in the upgrade process.

“With that in mind, today we are announcing that we will offer Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) through January 2023.”


getting customer support via twitter for corporates such as @bp @coop @mbplc @microsoftuk

getting customer support via twitter can be effective especially for large faceless corporates such as BP, COOP, MBPLC (Harvester & Toby) and MS

so next time youve been double charged for a meal deal or been overcharged for parking in your local pub carpark or have a windows 10 bug dont get angry try tweeting first

my latest experience was with MS who did respond to me which was nice but asked me to resubmit my bug on a separate system

We appreciate valuable observations such as this, which is why we highly encourage that you submit a feedback through our Feedback Hub app. This way, you can help improve Windows 10 functionality and other services in future updates. You can visit this article to know how: http://msft.social/lpc7WS

By the way, every feedback counts and is important to us.

For future support reference, you may also check out our Customer Support YouTube channel on this link: http://msft.social/R2kf3BROKEN

Thank you very much and have a great day!

Hope you have success with your future tweet complaints

MySQL leads the way in “developer relations”


The Quality Contribution Program goal is to improve the quality of MySQL products, with the active co-operation of the MySQL user community.

The program facilitates this by
   1. visibly acknowledging the participants by attributing individual quality enhancements to them;
   2. rewarding the participants with benefits in proportion to their contribution (Awards are subscriptions to MySQL Enterprise);
   3. streamlining the process of contributing to MySQL Quality for the benefit of both current and future contributors

Quality Contributions fall into three categories: (i) bug reports, (ii) test cases, and (iii) code patches. We evaluate each contribution with a publicly verifiable set of rules, and the contributor accumulates the QA points for all contributions submitted during the last 12 months.

Start today @ http://dev.mysql.com/qualitycontribution.html
