yeh me not know good questions ...

I'd have asked if they think they should keep the top 5 servers open (Halo 2, counterstrike etc). Although the expense outweighs profit and they obviously want to increase future game online numbers by culling the older games it'd be a great show for the community to keep the 5 biggest servers open.

I do.

I also heard they have temporariliy made Original Xbox DLC available again.  I'm going to confirm that when I return home later today.  I need to stockpile my Halo 2 maps for my new 250GB Hard Drive.

A few eagle-eyed observers noticed that DLC for original Xbox games has already been removed ahead of Microsoft's big shutdown date.
Microsoft has already stated that it will be shutting down Xbox Live support for original Xbox titles in April, so when the DLC for original Xbox games disappeared, most presumed it was an early indicator of that move.

However, Microsoft says it was a mistake and that Xbox owners will be able to buy content until the shutdown date. Not that there is much DLC to buy on original Xbox, of course. But if you did have your eye on some, for whatever reason, best make your move now.
