    MSDN Mag 2000-2003 on CD for cost of shipping (Mostly .Net, it seems)

    Through July 12th, you can order the past 4 years of MSDN Magazine, articles and code excerpts, on CD for $10 (US shipping) to $20 (international shipping). If you are looking forward to .Net in the next year or so, you'll probably find this useful. If you plan to ignore it indefinitely, I'm not sure it's worth getting. Many of the articles are online at Microsoft.com already (although the older ones probably will fall away over time):

    Tables of contents: 2004 | 2003 | 2002 | 2001 | 2000 (scroll down past the pictures)

    Offer link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/cdrom/2003/

    Added: The e-mail I got has an extra little a at the end of the offer code. This might be necessary to extend the offer from June 30th to July 12th.

    According to my post, there is a code that works through July 12th. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> Just add it to the end of the URL when you get to the fill-in form and press Enter to use the new code.

    It took me a couple of times to get it straight, but as noted, if you add an "a" to URL after clicking link to open order form and then reload page, then you get the extended offer - see attached pic. Submitted order form w/no problems. Seemed like a good deal even tho' don't use .NET much at present....

    Thanks, Mark. Way better directions than I gave. And the picture helps, too.

    I Just ordrred.
    Very strange order process.
    No confirmation/order number was issued.
    Perhaps, that is to be emailed to me.
