    Just finished burning my last DVD. And I now have a nice little test network up and running - running Windows Server 2008 to test out some virtualisation ideas for the college and deploying Vista.

    Nope, the registered subscriptions have been deleted it seems, mine have gone anyway.

    My subscription has also gone.

    I was unable to claim any new keys, as the servers were being hammered, they just kept sending me my old keys from my last subscription.

    This wasnt really meant to be used this way so not surprised they have deleted it. I did manage to get technet library even though my license expired in 1900

    If only I'd had time to download stuff/get keys yesterday . Wish I'd done it when I got home. I suppose it was too good to last...

    You don't need TechNet for that. The RC is free to anyone.

    Having checked this morning looks like all subscriptions have been removed as none of the guys here can get into the downloads section at all now.

    Logins to technet site still work though

    Yeah, my account's been stuffed thanks to the trillions of downloads worldwide. Fun whilst it lasted and at least I got everything I needed to set up a decent test lab here now.

    probably work still, although I presume nothing has a valid license for use now.

    Yes they can, you simply will not be able to activate them via online activation.
