JSI Tip 2673. Another way to find a specific Knowledge Base article number.

In tip 0144, I introduced the http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Qnnn/n/nn.asp method of retrieving a specific Knowledge Base article number.

An alternate method, that is much more handy, is http://support.microsoft.com/support/misc/kblookup.asp?id=nnnnnn.

NOTE: The KB article number (without the letter "Q") appears after the equal sign.
