Goods new on the MSDN front from Sara Williams

Thanks Simon! Glad you like the new RSS feeds - we're pretty pleased with them. :-)

I hear ya on the broken links. Seems like it'd be a simple thing to fix, but it's surprisingly complicated. Skipping the overly boring details (which I will share if you'd really like), here's the scoop:

  1. we've actually been working hard to reduce the total number of broken links on the site, and have reduced the overall number by about 95%. Of course, it's not done until we get to 100%, but we are making progress.
  2. we do have a spec for new infrastructure that will provide unchanging, human-typeable URLs. I can't give you a ship date yet, but it is something that we're actively working on.
Thanks Sara, its great news that you're going to tackle this one.
