Azure for MSDN subscribers.

At the Azure conference on Friday they explained the FREE STUFF (I love free stuff) that you get with MSDN subscription with Azure. So I went onto my MSDN Subscription page last night, and very impressed. This gives me the power to have 750 hours for free every month (that’s 31 days worth). And bandwidth wise, 25gb IN, and OUT that sounds a lot.
