This has got to be one of their all-time biggest outages-- never experienced anything like it. On top of that, there is no ETA, though as an engineer, I can sympathize with what they must be going through."

Wake me up when Microsoft comes up with a tool that allows non-coder graphic designers or animators to create entire apps in Silverlight with the same ease that you can with Flash.

Wake me up when Adobe or Microsoft (or anyone, for that mater) comes up with a tool that allows non-coder graphic designers or animators to create entire apps that don't take up huge amounts of bandwidth, don't run like drunk turtles, and don't reinvent ever UI widget under the sun (including label text.)

Wake me up when everyone else wakes up. Can't wait to wipe the drool off my pillow and start coding to that dream API!

By the way, isn't this "Wake me up" business backwards? You should be fully awake now, struggling with Flash and Silverlight. You'll get more sleeping time when the fictional brain-reading compiler comes out.
