Any MSDN Subscribers- I meant to post this before, but forgot about it.  But it looks like a pretty cool value added to the MSDN subscription.

MSDN Subscription Updates    January 31, 2012   

We are pleased to inform you of some highly requested changes to the Windows Azure cloud computing Benefits for MSDN Subscribers. Effective immediately:
•    Spending limits have been established to ensure that MSDN subscribers do not accidentally exceed their free monthly benefits
•    Windows Azure cloud computing benefits have been expanded for users with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN and Visual Studio 2010 Premium with MSDN, and Visual Studio 2010 Professional with MSDN subscribers

Subscribers with an active Visual Studio with MSDN subscription are entitled to the monthly Windows Azure benefits listed below based on their subscription level:

Activate your MSDN cloud computing benefits from Windows Azure by going to the MSDN Benefits Page

•     Review your MSDN cloud computing benefits
•     Understand how the spending limits work
•     Use the MSDN forums to get benefits questions answered
•     Let the “how to” guides connect between your needs and the cloud, such as How to Create a .NET App With SQL Azure
•     Learn about Windows Azure via online training assets from the Azure DevCamp series

Although we require a credit card or debit card for sign-up, for all new subscriptions, there is a $0 (USD) Spending Limit on your subscription so you do not accidentally exceed the monthly benefit shown above. If you use more in a month than the above amounts, you will exceed your $0 (USD) Spending Limit and your service will be disabled for that month.

Thank you for your continued interest in MSDN.
