Default a miraculous never ending zune pass?

Alright, so im certainly not complaining here, and there is no way I'm handing over my zunetag to anyone. But this is weird. I had a Zune hd for a long time and I broke it. I bought d another one 4 months ago and immediately purchased a one month zune pass. Since that time, I have had uninterrupted flow of music both on the device and the computer. There have been no prompts to refresh, log in or pay anyone anything. I can even add new videos and music to the device with no resistance at all. I checked my bank statements and verified that they have not received one dime beyond the initial 15 dollar charge.
What could have possibly caused this good fortune?
Aside from the less than intimidating "don't update"/ don't take any of zune teams consolation apps is there anything that i can potentially do to keep this thing going?

Yea, the first thing I would have done is NOT talk about it on a site with a head honcho from MS who consistently visits/participates.

Other than that, sounds like a fluke. I think the only thing that can help you is crossing your fingers and hoping for the best.

all excellent points, but personally I would have re upped the zune pass anyway. I really can't live without it. However, Dave's presence here makes this exactly the place to make mention of such things. I would find it to be incredibly surprising if I were the only one receiving such benefits. I imagine that,software issues like this are rarely specific to one device. It makes me wonder how many people have been thought to have suspended their zune service but in reality are streaming free music right through the air. I'm not willing to sell myself out personally, but I now have 45 dollars and counting that Micro$oft probably should have. My zune is the centerpiece of a killer entertainment system and I have no intention of letting go of my zune pass.
Microsoft:look into it, and see if you can "fix" it. The moment you do, I will most certainly send over 15 more dollars.

and for all of you "where are the apps?" people, I say this. Hd video out and the most incredible music discovery service I have ever known mean more to me than even the angriest of birds.

now i'll go back to reading these threads and stop writing. peace all
