It's been fun. Got the email this afternoon. I'm not sure that I'll be able to do much lab stuff any more. Which means less content for this blog. Less ability to answer questions on Server Fault through having the ability to quickly verify things. Less ability for me take the things I've learned and tested and use them for the benefit of my employers. Less ability to try out the extremely atypical scenarios that I'd get asked in the usual tricky Microsoft exam yet never see in a production environment.
I guess I can still get stuff from TechNet Evaluation Center, but as far as I can tell I'll have to promptly rebuild my entire lab every 6 months, which makes me less inclined.
I'll think of something. Man, I never thought I'd be saying this, but sometimes I feel like things would be a lot easier on me if I just specialized in Linux stuff.
