    MSDN CD memories

    Was sorting out a filing cabinet today and found all sorts of juicy MSDN blasts from the past!

    Anyone remember Windows .NET server?! (Before they renamed it to 2003!)

    Amazing how none of the CDs are really any use today, and the entire library is now available online!

    I've got an army of zip up cases our MSDN and schools agreement discs came in. All the old discs end up in the science dept for use as mirrors or something. They seem to get through them!

    I've found our 100mb connection at work can usually download the software faster than I can find it on a CD!
