Is the free upstate still available past Jan. 14?

st3fx, thanks for that video on recovering my Windows password. Turns out the video was for Win7 while I had Win8, so it didn't work - but I was so inspired by your video that I searched some more and recovered my password using a Linux LiveCD.

So thanks to nthcircle and the wonderful folks here, my Windows laptop is now upgraded to Windows10. (Not that I plan on using Windows any day soon, but a free upgrade was hard to pass up!)
