Just a heads up that Microsoft is currently handing out free movie tickets if you join the Microsoft Virtual Academy and then download a trial of Server 2012.

Details are here http://blogs.technet.com/b/nzitpro/archive/2012/10/24/movie-madness-want-two-movie-tickets-back-by-popular-demand.aspx

Just got my tickets today but it says limited to first 500 so not sure how many are left so get in there if you are keen. 

Thanks Microsoft :)

(Mod please move to correct forum if this is the wrong place)

Did mine couple of weeks ago I think. Still waiting for tickets to be delivered. Hopefully they will be delivered today then.




Do whatever you want to do man.

The promo ended on Monday. I got in on the last day and got the tickets on Tuesday.

Now only if I could sign up to Technet. My application has been 'pending' for two weeks now.....




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Yes. it has been going on for a couple of weeks now. Apparently the hold up is credit card processing. Can you help?

Cheers, Matt
