jones_supa writes "While service packs are out of style for the Windows operating system, Microsoft has pushed out another service pack (SP2) for both Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 products. According to the company, they provide key updates and fixes across servers, services and applications including security, stability, and performance enhancements and better compatibility with Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, Office 2013, and SharePoint 2013. The updates are available through Windows Update and as separate downloads."

The people who make the decision to but SharePoint are generally anything but nerds so how is this news for slashdot most of us wouldn't use SharePoint if you threatened to chop our cocks off!

I am pretty happy about it. Works great if you have competent administrators and good solid infrastructure.

My Story (-1)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,6 days | (#44368371)

I love dressing up whenever possible, which is not often enough. But,
what I love even more is dressing up as a hot and wanton sissy slut
cocksucker and then going to the local adult theater for some great XXX
fun. I am not totally passable, but have been told my legs are fantastic
and my ass is nice and tight with a hot tramp stamp just above my ass.
Most guys say it's sexy as hell while they are fucking me.

Fortunately, my wife had to go out of town for a few days and thereby
giving me an opportunity to do what I love. She left Friday morning so;
I decided to take the afternoon off allowing plenty of time to properly
prepare myself for the anticipated evening activities. Once back home, I
began the transition process by getting out my hidden stash of women's
clothes, shoes and other accessories. As usual by the time I got
everything into the bedroom my clit was hard and dripping like a faucet.
Naturally I kept taking the drippings and licking them off my fingers.
Yummy!!

After changing my mind a few times, I finally decided on a blue jean
mini-skirt, shear white blouse with ruffles, lacy red bra for my 38C
silicone breasts, matching garter belt and thong, black fishnet
stockings, red 4 inch CFM mules and my red wig. Now with my outfit
selected, I went to the bathroom and started my bath water and added
some bath oil and other fragrances to make sure I felt and smelled as
feminine as possible. While in the tub I shaved my body except for my
eyebrows, head and a small landing strip above my clit. After completing
my bath I sprayed perfume around my clit, neck and tits.

Now I am really excited and ready to get dressed as the sissy slut
cocksucker I am at heart. Once dressed, I begin putting on my makeup and
wig taking my time to insure obtaining the appropriate look. Now all I
have to do is put my jewelry on so I grab my toe rings, wrist and ankle
bracelets, rings and favorite necklace for these occasions. It says
"cocksucking slut" in big bold letters. I look hot as hell!!

As I am driving to the theater, I realize how dangerous and exciting it
is driving dressed as I am. Maybe that is why my panties are always
soaked when I arrive. Pulling into the parking lot I see only a handful
of vehicles and think oh well, it's only 8 pm and it will definitely
pick up in a couple hours. I park and get out of the car and begin
walking to the entrance. While walking to the entrance I hear and love
the sound of my heels hitting the sidewalk with each step. Upon entering
the theater I pay this very nice middle aged man who complimented me on
my outfit and looks. He told me the facility has two different theaters
and I was welcome to visit both of them and then he wished me a good
time.

I decided to start in the left one and as I walked in it takes a few
minutes for my eyes to adjust to the lighting. Once they adjusted, I
notice 4 guys scattered throughout and decided to walk around so they
could hear my heels hit the floor and see who had joined them. After
making this walk I chose an aisle seat in the back row. A few minutes
after sitting down, one of the guys came back to tell me how fucking hot
I looked. I thanked him and noticed he was staring at my necklace. He
asked me if the necklace was true and I said yes. He then smiled and
unzipped his pants to pull out a very nice and stiff average sized cock.
I looked at him and his cock and smiled. He then moved closer and put
his cock on my lips and said then get busy sucking my cock slut. I
gladly took his cock and began giving him one of my best blowjobs, he
starts panting and moaning pretty loud and the next thing I know one of
the other guys is standing on the other side of me with his stiff cock
out wanting my attention.

So now I have a nice stiff cock in my mouth while also stroking the
other one. As this is going on, I hear the first guy tell the other one
that I am a cocksucking slut and should be treated as one. With that
said, the second guy tells me to stand, but to keep sucking that cock. I
do as instructed only to have him pull my skirt up over my ass and pull
down my thong. He starts playing with my ass and sticks a finger in my
boi pussy which causes me to jump, but I keep sucking that stiff cock.
Now I am feeling two and then 3 fingers in and out of my pussy and I am
hot as hell begging him to stick his cock deep and hard into my pussy.
So, the second guy puts his cock head at the entrance of my pussy and
begins to push it into my hot and wet pussy. When he is completely in
and I have adjusted he starts pounding my pussy for all he is worth. Now
I am in heaven, taking stiff cocks from both ends is so fucking hot and
exciting.

I feel the cock in my mouth getting ready to explode so I begin sucking
harder to get my just reward of his cum shot deep down my throat. He
begins tensing up and then shoots rope after rope of cum down my throat.
Upon seeing this, the second guy shoots his load deep into my pussy. As
these two are cleaning and zipping up, I notice two more standing there
with their cocks out hard as rocks. One guy is white and in his early
50's with a nice stiff 8 inch cock and the other one is black and in his
late forties with at least a 9 inch stiff and fat cock.

They looked at me and said so, you are a cocksucking slut and at this
point it was impossible to say no, and why would I anyway. They looked
at me and said which one of these cocks do you want in your mouth versus
which one you want pounding your pussy. Looking at the black man I told
him I had never had taken a cock that big and was not sure I could. He
laughed and said it's settled then you will suck that white cock while I
pound that pussy of yours with my bbc. I am now really excited and
scared to be taking both these big cocks at the same time. The white
moves closer and sticks his cock into my mouth and allows me to get used
to its size and also begin getting into a rhythm that allows me to enjoy
sucking his cock. While getting into my rhythm the black guys puts his
fat cock head at the entrance of my pussy. Thankfully he gives me that
big cock a little at a time until his balls are touching mine. He then
lets me adjust to its size before giving me the absolute fucking of my
life.

These guys talk and get into a rhythm that has me on a sexual edge for
what seemed like hours. I then realize the white guy tensing up in
preparation of shooting his load. So, I begin preparing myself to accept
his wonderful load when all of a sudden he pulls out shoots a huge load
all over my face, hair and clothes. The black guy sees this and
immediately shoots his hot load deep into my pussy. I thanked both of
them for a great time and said I hoped to run into them again for
another round.

At this point my mouth and ass were tired and sore so, I was getting up
to head home. As I stood this big black guy grabbed my arm and said
where do you think you're going slut? I told him I was going home and
asked him to let go of my arm. He said, you aren't going anywhere until
you take care of this bbc, at which point he pulled out what had to be a
10 or 11 inch stiff and thick cock. I told him I could not take anything
that big and he said not only can you, you will take it anyway I say to.

He then took me to the front row of the theater where he had me suck his
cock until my jaws couldn't take it anymore and then he leaned me over
the seat and stuffed that big cock up my pussy. I thought I would die,
but I finally got used to it and began fucking him back and asking for
more and harder. He finally exploded this huge load all over my back. I
have to admit it was the best fucking of my life. At this point it was
time to go home for a shower and to rest. I will be back for more and
soon!

Did you complain about the /. article announcing the latest update to Apache OpenOffice [slashdot.org] yesterday, or is that different?

Also, I can't help but feel you've missed the point of aggregator sites like Slashdot. Part of their purpose is saving you from having to constantly monitoring a pile of different sites for their version of news.

Anybody running an MS infrastructure who is getting MS product news from /. have a serious issue with priorities.

Re:Please note... (1)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,6 days | (#44368665)

Anybody running an MS infrastructure who is getting MS product news from /. have a serious issue with priorities.

Why, because you couldn't possibly read /. and get the update news from somewhere else? Besides, that argument applies just as well to the aforementioned Apache OpenOffice article. Why read /. for updates on that when you could just read the Apache website every day? Did you have a problem with the many articles on Slashdot about what MS was doing with Win8's UI? Or are product announcements from MS OK when the general opinion is that the new product is a train-wreck?

I really hate to sound like I'm defending MS here but when it's fine to post an update about Apache OpenOffice one day but it's not OK to post an update about MS Office the very next day then there's a serious case of double-standards going on. I get that this is /. where for a long time the company was referred to as M$, but that's hardly a defence when somebody points out blatant bias.

No need to defend Microsoft. They did not post.

If this was a shiny new version of Office or even SharePoint, fine. But this is a service pack to a version that is not even the latest version. It is like posting about a patch to OpenOffice 3 a year after OpenOffice 4 is out.

And just to calm down the impression that I would be anti-Microsoft: I work almost exclusively with Microsoft products. I have nothing against Microsoft. But I still think that posting news about a trivial update on /. is a waste of time and space.

I'm New Around Here (1154723) | 1 year,6 days | (#44369193)

But I still think that posting news about a trivial update on /. is a waste of time and space.

Yet here you are wasting our time and space griping about it.

I for one am happy to hear about this service pack, even though it is for a previous version of Office. Mainly because Office 2013 is a horrible eyesore, and I recommend to my customers they stick with 2010, or upgrade to it if they are running something older still on a PC that we are replacing.

So news of the update is welcome for me, regardless of where I hear about it. And, no, I am not going to troll through Microsoft's pages every day looking for update news.

Re:Please note... (1)

Ravaldy (2621787) | 1 year,5 days | (#44371961)

I second that. We are doing a large deployment next week. SP2 will be part of it to avoid excess online updating.

Anybody running an MS infrastructure who is getting MS product news from /. have a serious issue with priorities.

Here's a quick tip to make Slashdot more efficient for you. If you don't want to read about updates to Microsoft products, just skip over the story and read the next one. That way you can filter out the articles that don't interest you while those people who don't want to spend every day with their eyes glued to Microsoft's website can still get the information that they need. Remember that it is supposed to be "News for nerds" and not "News for FaxeTheCat".

The mistake that you made here today was wasting your time writing five posts to say that this topic doesn't interest you.

Re:Please note... (1)

hairyfeet (841228) | 1 year,5 days | (#44371889)

Hell you don't even have to do that as /. has built in filters that let you block any stories you don't want, this is how I keep from seeing the majority of Linux articles, just check the boxes, add a few keywords (in my case words like Redhat and Ubuntu, in this guys case words like Microsoft, Sharepoint,etc) and voila! No more crap you don't care about.

Now if there was only a way to filter out AC posts while not blocking registered users that were downmodded by groupthink I'd say this place was perfect, can't always get what you want though.

Second: As a reader I have the option of telling /. that I do not think updates to old versions of MS software is newsworthy on /.

This is a DISCUSSION site. Nobody comes here for news, which is usually covered by everyone else days earlier. People come to DISCUSS the news. If you don't want to read the discussions about a news item you already know about, just don't click the link. Joining the discussion to complain about the submission (which slashdotters vote on in the firehose) will do nothing but harm your karma... as you can see from the big fat "0, flamebait".

citylivin (1250770) | 1 year,5 days | (#44373181)

So when you go to www.microsoft.com (which I am sure you made your homepage and check every day by the sounds of your tone), a news item or popup alerts you that a service pack is available?

Oh wait, that doesn't happen because m$.com is a marketing site not a tech news site. I for one was informed by these sorts of posts as one cannot possibly keep up with every vendor one has to maintain. Unless one is doing no real work and sits around reading vendor web pages all day.

And this is news because? (5, Interesting)

jargonburn (1950578) | 1 year,6 days | (#44368523)

I mean, yes, the service pack is claim to improve compatibility with Microsoft's most recent cop-out of an OS. In my experience, people buy new copies Office infrequently enough [anecdotal evidence is not a citation] to warrant a little extra effort on their part. This is probably in part additional groundwork to convince people to upgrade to Windows 8.1/Blue as it comes to the market.

Probably the most important bits are the updating the Web Apps and improved compatibility with IE10. IE10 is usually fine, I can almost forget that it's not IE9....unless one of the irritating bugs occurs with it on one of my clients' machines. (To be fair, I can't say I've noticed those problems with it in Windows 8, only with Windows 7 machines that have had IE10 installed).
Still, I just don't think this was worth posting to Slashdot.

On another note, this bit at the end of the article caught my eye:

Even though these releases are service packs, and designed to fix problems, Microsoft has listed a couple of known issues associated with installing them...Microsoft recommends installing a particular update first...on a computer that has Windows Server 2003 SP2

And yet, they still couldn't be bothered to add in logic to detect the described circumstance and include that particular update as a prerequisite to the service pack.
Just....*ugh*.

On the bright side: a Service Pack couldn't possibly make Office2010 any worse than it already is. (or COULD it? creepy music...)

I mean, really: do you know how embarrassing it is to send a finished document to your boss, have him throw it up on the screen in a review meeting, and see the formatting fouled up, all because his Office default is set to load the default Styles from his template, rather than stick with the ones in the (corporate template based) incoming document?

Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (1)

Nimey (114278) | 1 year,6 days | (#44369591)

A quick search hasn't turned up the answer: do I need to have Office 2010 SP1 installed for SP2 to go, or can I skip straight to SP2 from the gold release?

Re:Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (1)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,6 days | (#44369633)

Microsoft SPs have always been cumulative. They effectively represent many individual updates/fixes rolled up into one. You can install this on a freshly-installed Office 2010 and not have to worry about other patches, except maybe any released in the last month or so that may not have made the cut-off.

Re:Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (3, Informative)

Nimey (114278) | 1 year,6 days | (#44369657)

No, not all MS SPs are. I give you Windows Vista, where you needed SP1 to be installed before SP2 would.

Win7 would probably have been the same way if MS had bothered to make a second SP for it.

Re:Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (0)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,6 days | (#44369967)

Yeah, that was weird. And add to that, the slipstream process for Vista/7 require much more work than 2k/XP/2k3 would.

Re:Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (1)

ImprovOmega (744717) | 1 year,5 days | (#44374269)

I would argue that slipstreaming is vastly simpler in Vista/7. Add to that the fact that you can slip in absolutely anything you want (IE9, Apps, .Net, DirectX...) and I strongly prefer the new model to the old.

Re:Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (1)

ImprovOmega (744717) | 1 year,5 days | (#44374237)

Because they realigned the codebase for vista SP1 to match Server 2008 RTM. That made SP1 required for Vista to update to SP2.

Re:Are Office 2010 SPs cumulative? (3, Informative)

Nimey (114278) | 1 year,6 days | (#44370417)

The answer is no, you don't need SP1 installed first. I have experimentally verified this.
