I have found fixes for some of the broken links. They have been emailed to Mr. Macinta and he suggested I place a copy on the forum so others can view them before he has the chance to update the what's so bad about Microsoft page.

If anybody finds the correct links or replacement links to some of the broken ones on the site, feel free to put them here.

I have listed them with the section of the page, the link text, and the corrected link URL. For the sake of uniformity, I suggest you format it the same way. Never mind the ">" I was lazy and copy/pasted it from my email.

Thanks again for all the links - you did a great job. I've finally updated the page using your suggestions. I was also actually able to find live copies for some of the articles where you suggested using The Wayback Machine. I've credited you at the bottom of the page.
