They've changed how licenses are managed; i.e. if you used to assign licenses via the Volume Licensing Service Center you should now use the VS Manage Portal. An email was sent out to VLSC admins recently; so hopefully someone in your organisation got this?
In addition, I believe subscriptions may expire when their parents do; so if you have a VS subscription with 2 years left but the Enterprise Agreement it was purchased under expires today, all those child subscriptions expire early. I'm not sure if this is still the case; happened to us ~8 years ago; though I think it was resolved after various support calls; so not sure whether it was intentional...
Have you checked the Microsoft Action Pack? It is not as feature rich as MSDN, but it's cca £300 / year and includes most MS software. And then (for testing) there are cloud services where you can select the target machine (incl. OS and software), rent it for a few days, and delete it afterwards.
Google's score is slightly below a six-year-old human's IQ of 55.5, but more than double Siri's IQ of 23.9. By their measure, Siri is not as smart as Microsoft's Bing or Baidu, which have respective IQs of 31.98 and 32.92. All AI's IQs are significantly less than an average 18-year-old's 97 IQ.Oct 3, 2017
hmmm, maybe the google.co.uk is a bit smarter than google.com?
btw, that makes Sander's IQ = 83.25 by his own admission (2/3x = 55 => x = 82.5)
