Setting up a Windows Live ID

Filed under: Microsoft, Windows Live ID — solutionsthroughit @ 11:10

I had to setup a Live ID for a customer the other day.  It was a “fun” experience.  Long story short, REALLY hard to find the URL to sign up – the link Microsoft provided 404’ed.  To setup an account using your own (or a MSN Hotmail) email address go here.

Just for added fun – I was setting up an account called IT@customerdomainnamehere.com.au  Turns out you can’t use ANY word with “IT” in it as part of the password.  Kitten / Hospital / thispasswordissolongitssilly.  Smart.  Really smart.  abababab is perfectly acceptable but $iTx0($!k5 is not good enough because it uses “IT”.

Really?
