    Update: According to Microsoft, the issue is not related to OGA or WGA, but strictly to offline activation, which is now available again.

    Original story: A few of our readers have written in to report problems trying to activate copies of Microsoft Office 2003. One user has been receiving a message telling him that the service is temporarily down since Thursday morning. Phone calls to Microsoft would result in a message asking him to try activating again later and to call back in an hour or two. Ars has contacted Microsoft and has confirmed that both the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) and the Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) servers are currently down.
