You'll probably be a lot older, and have gray hairs, before
you get that working :-) But, it's possible.

LOL!

Naw. piece of cake. Casper does all of the hard work for you.
Glen just likes to rant and show how ignorant he can be. Some
people are
like that for some reason. :-(
snip

Paul made the statement, you ignorant troll. All I posted was an
LOL to Paul's comment. Still haven't improved your reading
comprehension, I see.

I know Paul said it you arrogant ass! And you didn't offer to help,
but just laugh like a ranting fool who has nothing to do but to
harass people and to say people said things they didn't like an
evil little worthless troll that you are. I never kill filed
anybody in my life. But you are bucking the limit and I might make
an exception.

Promises, promises... killfile me so you will stop your trolling,
please! I laughed at Paul's joke... can't you even see the smiley
he included indicating his joke? Geez, you're sad.
Funny, an arrogant ass like yourself calling someone that. You
trolled me for a week or more over the Office update site and
updates, which you were dead wrong about, and you still went on and
on even when confronted with the facts. So please, killfile me....
I'd consider it an honor coming from you.


You always get things wrong. I was not wrong about supplying a list
of updates for Office 2000. And when I try to help somebody, you try
your best to cause problems by harassing, belittling, lying, and
using every dishonest means at your disposal. But that is what a low
life like you do anyway. So no news there.


Your troll-fest wasn't about your list of updates.... it never was,
though that's all you seem to be able to recall... it was about the
Office Update site and the location of Office update downloads *prior
to* Office 2000. You still have that reading comprehension problem.
I suggest you seek some professional help if you cannot take
corrections without resorting to name calling and slander, which has
been you modus operandi every time someone questions your statements
or corrects you.


Naw. you are just being a dumb ass. That only came up much later. First
was your attack of how useless it was supplying the list of needed
updates. But that is just you trying to be as unhelpful as you can be.

Personally, I don't care whether he killfiles me or not. I killfile
him, so I don't have to see any of his claptrap unless someone else
quotes him.

Oh geez, you just go on and on. I didn't say it was a useless list, I
stated that it didn't answer the poster's original question, to which
you replied your list was the only easy way to find all the OFF2K
updates, which is incorrect.... and it went on from there, with your
insistence that Windows Update supplied Office Updates for OFF95 and
OFF97... an assertion which is also incorrect, Windows Update never
offered updates to Office products.... yet you argued it ad nauseum.
You keep calling names that just point right back at you.

got what they were looking for and doesn't want to bother correcting the
likes of you. And I fully understand that.

I would love to killfile some people. But I see killfiling as a sign of
ignorance. As it means you are set in your ways and already know
everything. Thus there is no need to listen to anybody who might
actually know better. And I personally refuse to lower my standards that
low. But I suppose Ken has no problems doing so.

So, you have a short memory AND reading comprehension issues.
I understood the OP and answered his question, which was: why was he
being offered OFF2007 updates when he had OFF2000... and the answer was
that he had installed the 2007 Compatibility Pack, after which one is
offered updates to OFF 2007 as well as the installed version of Office
itself. That was his question and that was the answer.

The OP replied tp my post the next day, stated that this was correct and
what he had done. The OP *never* asked if the 2007 updates updated
OFF2000.... he asked why they were being offerred and if he should
install them.

Your list of OFF2000 updates had nothing to do with his question. The
OP never bothered replying to your post, possibly because it was
irrelevant.

....and on and on you go, arguing your own error.

Are you really that dense, Glen? Why would somebody go to Office
Updates? Let me help you Glen. They would if they wanted to make sure
that their Office was fully up-to-date. And the OP had Office 2000. And
sure Office Updates found that Office 2007 needed updating and ask why
would it say that when they had Office 2000?

Sure there was plenty of answers why updates would say such a thing.
Like having the compatibility pack that was covered by all. But nobody
but me answered what the OP was originally looking for. That was to
update their Office 2000 in the first place. And we know the OP was
looking for Office 2000 because they just did a fresh install of Office
2000. And we know Office Updates don't give a rat's ass about
automatically updating Office 2000 anymore. And it wouldn't tell you a
damn thing about any updates for Office 2000.

But you rather play dumb and harass the people who are doing the
helping. And to beat them to death so they stop doing the real helping
and so everybody can be as dumb as you are. I personally call that just
ignorance and I want no part of that.

No, I answered the poster's question. The original poster in that
thread NEVER asked for Office 2000 updates, he asked why he was offered
OFF2007 updates. He never said he did a fresh install of Office 2000
and was looking for updates to Office 2000.

He stated, and I quote:
"I'm running the automatic updates right now and it's offering me about
a dozen Office 2007 patches / fixes. Thing is, I've got Office 2000 SR1
premium installed on this thing ....{names of the OFF2007 patches}....
Do I want to download these patches - even though I don't have Office
2007?"

Nothing about a fresh install of Office 2000, no questions about getting
Office 2000 updates. ALL he asked was why was he offered OFF2007
updates and did he need to install those.

Get over yourself, geez! And stop wasting everyone's time.

So, you have a short memory AND reading comprehension issues.
I understood the OP and answered his question, which was: why was he
being offered OFF2007 updates when he had OFF2000... and the answer
was that he had installed the 2007 Compatibility Pack, after which
one is offered updates to OFF 2007 as well as the installed version
of Office itself. That was his question and that was the answer.

The OP replied tp my post the next day, stated that this was correct
and what he had done. The OP *never* asked if the 2007 updates
updated OFF2000.... he asked why they were being offerred and if he
should install them.

Your list of OFF2000 updates had nothing to do with his question.
The
OP never bothered replying to your post, possibly because it was
irrelevant.

...and on and on you go, arguing your own error.


Are you really that dense, Glen? Why would somebody go to Office
Updates? Let me help you Glen. They would if they wanted to make sure
that their Office was fully up-to-date. And the OP had Office 2000.
And
sure Office Updates found that Office 2007 needed updating and ask why
would it say that when they had Office 2000?

Sure there was plenty of answers why updates would say such a thing.
Like having the compatibility pack that was covered by all. But nobody
but me answered what the OP was originally looking for. That was to
update their Office 2000 in the first place. And we know the OP was
looking for Office 2000 because they just did a fresh install of
Office
2000. And we know Office Updates don't give a rat's ass about
automatically updating Office 2000 anymore. And it wouldn't tell you a
damn thing about any updates for Office 2000.

But you rather play dumb and harass the people who are doing the
helping. And to beat them to death so they stop doing the real helping
and so everybody can be as dumb as you are. I personally call that
just
ignorance and I want no part of that.


I suggest you read the original post from that thread again, since you
misunderstood it from day one:

And? What is different than what I said? Office 2000 SR1 is a very
outdated build. The last build was Office 2000 SP3 and a bit more to
follow which I all documented.

What is different, which you STILL don't get, is that his question was
about the OFF2007 updates.
Geez, you're hopeless.

Yeah I figured you were too dumb to understand. If you have Office 2000
SR1 and being offered Office 2007, what is the deal? What about Office
2000? Yeah I understand, you are just too dumb to understand.

Apparently you are too dumb to understand. He is offered OFF2007
updates from Microsoft Update, because he has the 2007 Compatibility
Pack installed and OFF2007 is a supported application. He is not being
offered Office 2000 updates from Microsoft Update because Office 2000 is
not a supported application and Microsoft Update doesn't supply them via
automatic updates any longer. His question was about the Office 2007
updates being offered, which you never even addressed. Just go away and
stop wasting our time, please.

Yes I understand totally. You just don't get it.

He is not being offered Office 2000 updates from Microsoft Update
because Office 2000 is not a supported application and Microsoft
Update doesn't supply them via automatic updates any longer.


Yes totally, I am light years ahead of you.

His question was about the Office 2007 updates being offered, which
you never even addressed. Just go away and stop wasting our time,
please.


I didn't offer anything about Office 2007 updates because it was covered
already, dumbass.
