"Free ASP.NET Web Hosting" for all MSDN Connection Members is now ready for access

I told you we would be announcing this soon

 Dear MSDN Connection Member,

We are very excited to announce that the "Free ASP.NET Web Hosting" for all MSDN Connection Members is now ready for access. What you need to do:

To access your hosting, please:

  1. Browse to http://www.microsoft.com/australia/msdn/connection/ .
  2. At this site you will be prompted to log in with your .NET passport.
  3. From here please navigate to the right hand side and click 'Set up my ASP.NET Hosting'. You will then be prompted to set up your new account details to activate the hosting and create your first new project!

If you attended Tech Ed 2004 you will have noticed the MSDN Connection Lounge. MSDN Connection Members had exclusive access to the lounge where they could play XBOX, meet the local Microsoft Developer Team and access refreshments including Redbull, chocolates and the coffee machine. This will be a common occurrence at MSDN events throughout the year and we will work to improve this benefit as time progresses.

Finally, for those of you who have "Dedicated" Member status, it is with great pleasure that we announce that you will receive the Borland's modeling tool "Together for Visual Studio" valued at $AUD336 AUD RRP (licensed on a "per named Developer" basis). This is being fulfilled at the moment and you will receive it in the near future. To find out more about this great developer product, have a look at the website: http://info.borland.com/media/shockwave/together/1009_tvs_2.0_intro.html .

The MSDN Connection team are working to create additional benefits for you, so watch out for the next announcement in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your support of this program and, in particular, for your patience as you may have experienced some initial launch challenges. I am sure you will enjoy the incremental benefits you will receive from being a MSDN Connection Member.

Warm regards,
Microsoft Australia MSDN Connection Team
