Hello colleagues,

I was wondering, if anybody knew the URL for the official Microsoft Glossary (it contains the MS core terminology as well as the standard terms for all the MS programs). I\'ve downloaded mine from an ftp-Server two years ago, but I don\'t have the address anymore and I could not find it online. I would like to get the new updated version, since they have probably entered many new terms within the past two years.

Thanks in advance for your help!!


Oh, and if anybody wants a copy of mine (I only have de-en), I am willing to share it, of course. It is an MS Excel 97 file containing about 2200 entries. Email me and I send it to you, or let me know how I can post it online so that you can download it yourself (but that is not possible here, right?).

MS just updated the glossaries; the .exe file is date-stamped 02/08/2002. (I just downloaded the new file today from the URL listed below).

What is the user name and password for this site? Feb 22, 2002

I tried this site too in order to update my old MS glossaries, but when I try to connect to it I am asked for a user name and a password. The anonymous login is not accepted.

Can you tell me how you got in?
