The new blogs.MSDN.com went live yesterday, and this morning I had problems with a number of links in RSS feeds and blog posts to existing posts on the site, so its possible that there may be problems with links to posts hosted on MSDN, especially in previous editions of The Brew. I’m sure this will only be a temporary thing and will be sorted soon. Hopefully all the links in today’s edition will work OK.
