I got 30+ random keys, all versions of Vista since the key thing was in such bad shape it would randomly spit out keys for certain ones and a few 2003 server keys. I forgot to get Office and other apps though.

Got what I needed but not sure if MS will negate these keys or not. Not sure if they want to admit to a mistake. Loaded Vista 64 yesterday and the key was good.

C&P From another forum.

TechNet Plus temporarily offline for pilot group
Thank you all for your wonderful interest and energy around the TechNet Plus Pilot Study. We have halted recruiting for the TechNet Plus pilot program after having reached our quotas for all intended markets. Unfortunately, one of the study participants posted the TechNet Plus registration link on a public blog in direct violation of the terms and conditions agreed to at the start of the study and for membership in ITAC.

The TechNet Plus links have been deactivated. The TechNet Plus site is currently offline for study participants while we mitigate the issues resulting from this situation. Please bear with us.

We need to remind everyone on ITAC and in the TechNet Plus study that participation in the portal and the various research studies/pilot programs launched on ITAC is governed by terms and conditions that prevent the sharing of proprietary study information with outside entities. All of you are privy to private, non-public and proprietary information while on ITAC and we are sorry to say that sharing information presented to you by Intrepid or our clients, is in violation of the agreements that each one of you signed upon entering.

Again, we are grateful for everyone's participation and enthusiasm, this situation has just served as a reminder to us all.

Kindest Regards,

Intrepid ITAC Team

I guess all those keys are going to get blacklisted. Download from Technet yesterday? You're a dirty pirate, says MS

Seems reasonable. MS has all your information and which keys were given to each person. Not that hard for them to blacklist all the keys. Though I suppose if you dodge updates, it might be fine.

Copy of a email I recieved today.
Quote:
Microsoft contracted with us, Intrepid Consultants, Inc, to conduct the TechNet Plus Pilot Study program research and manage the activities of the pilot study. Our records show that you have recently signed up for a free TechNet Plus subscription through a registration link that was made available without authorization on a public blog.

The registration link is part of a proprietary study and the party that shared the information was in violation of the terms and conditions to which they agreed to participate in the study. Membership to the Pilot study is limited and all members of the program are required to first meet survey requirements and then complete tasks and assignments over a two month period in order to qualify for and have access to the free TechNet Plus subscription. Since this was a privately conducted pilot study, at no time was it ever intended that a free TechNet Plus registration link would appear on a public internet site, which was done in violation of the terms to which participants agreed upon registering to participate in the pilot study.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but for this reason, we have deactivated your subscription, as well as all other subscriptions resulting from the unauthorized publication of the TechNet Plus Pilot Study program registration link on a public blog. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Kind regards,

The Intrepid Consultants Team
