    Make sure you read the EULA. If memory serves me correctly, you are only licensed to use while a student and the University.

    Kudos. That's actually what Academic Alliance (MSDNAA) is, it's part of MSDN

    As an MVP, I get to pick either MSDN or Technet, so I figured to play with all the new software, I'd get MSDN. Besides, if I have questions, I have TSG to fall back on, no need for Technet. :D

    Ditto on the MVP subscription. That subscription is worth it's wait in platinum.......forget gold.

    Wish I could make it to the Summit in March.

    That reminded me that when I was teaching CS, I belonged to something similar with MS and that's how I got XP. For some reason, they sent me two copies/licenses. If I could just remember what it was called.

    Thanks for dusting off that memory. :) Been a while .....

    Yep, Rafael is the lead. He just took over less than a year ago.

    I know we are in separate groups but would you like to finally meet for dinner this time. Hopefully I won't get sick this time.

    I registered late so I am at the Red Lion a couple of blocks away from the Convention Center.
    But I don't care. With all the points I accumulated from traveling the other year, I am flying first class all the way.
