Microsoft patches Windows Live Signup Programme

Microsoft have patched a loophole in the Windows Live Signup program that allowed users to register any iteration of live.<countrytld>, e.g. live.co.uk, live.com etc. Now only live.nl is allowed as this is the only country where Windows Live Mail is currently available.Congratulations to those who managed to secure their early-bird name@live.com address, comiserations to those who missed out... you'll have to wait for the world-wide launch of Windows Live Mail!
