    .NET Standard Edition

    I got an email from a colleague yesterday for a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> standard copy of .NET. (Sorry this is for US only.)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Microsoft is giving away free copies of
    Visual Basic .Net at http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/ . (Thanks to
    all who wrote in!) You have to watch 5 promotional videos and answer
    short rating question to prove you really saw them. You then get a
    special code you can use to get a free copy of Visual Basic .NET 2003
    Standard Edition.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The videos are tutorials on using .NET. Each runs on average 5 minutes.

    Enjoy

    Don
    Great link to the tutorials, some great information there.
    One thing, after previewing the video's the link is broken to rate the results.

    Wonder if some-one else has had this problem too ?

    Dave,

    Glad you found them interesting and helpful. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I found that when the video ended I had to close that window and return to the session I linked to the video from and click Rate this movie (after watching).

    Don

    Yep so did I.
    I was able to rate two out of three then can't go back to rate the third.
    I'll try later when it's quiet.

    Thanks anyway

    Sorry Dave,

    I didn't check your profile to see where you are located or I would have given you a heads up that it was for this side of the pond only. Next Time I post, I'll bold the fine print.

    Have a good day.
