So Long, TechNet Subscription.

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.

I'm a 100% linux guy and quite enjoy your blog as a sysadmin. I feel your pain.

Thanks! It's a great feeling to know that someone out there is reading. Don't worry, I will not let this stop me from posting IT content. Smile

Can't you get a MSDN account?

They're a lot more expensive.

Either way, I won't let this stop me. I'll keep the quality content coming.  Thanks for commenting!
