Microsoft's Digital Locker is going away
If you have used Microsoft's Digital Locker for anything (like Vista Anytime Upgrades) you better head on over to the locker room and get your things because this school is a closin' (they must have took a page from the Seattle Public Schools' administrative handbook this week).

Subject: ACT NOW: Closing your digital locker account
Your Digital Locker Account Will Be Closed in August, 2009.
Dear Digital Locker Customer,
This is to notify you that on November 20, 2008 Windows® Marketplace transitioned from an e-commerce site to a reference site. On Windows Marketplace you will find links to sites such as Microsoft Store, Windows Vista® Compatibility Center, and other destinations with compatible software, hardware and devices that support Microsoft platforms. As part of this transition, the digital locker service affiliated with Windows Marketplace will be closed in August, 2009.
If you made a purchase on Windows Marketplace, you acquired a digital locker account in order to purchase, download and install products from Windows Marketplace. You may be using your digital locker account to store and maintain information about software you purchased, including license information to enable you to reinstall your software or get assistance from the software reseller.
The digital locker service will continue to be available until August, 2009. During this time, you should back up the contents of your digital locker account before they are permanently deleted:
1. To maintain your software records, go to your digital locker account and print a copy of the software information located there.
2. To backup your software to a CD so that you always have a copy, follow the CD back-up instructions in the “What happens to digital locker?” Section in the Windows Marketplace FAQ.
More information is available at Windows Marketplace FAQ.
