New beta testing opportunity.

  Forum Editor 19:30 02 Nov 2009

If you fancy trying your hand at a bit of beta testing we may have something that will interest you. We've been asked to test a completely new application that will be launching soon.

The company concerned is keen to have the product tested by people who may have had no previous experience with this kind of software,and there's no need to worry - the learning curve is short and interesting. The test will run for about five days, and you should find it fun.

Email me if you're interested, and I'll tell you more. Please provide me with your forum name, and the email address which is registered with us. Previous beta testers may apply.

why the nature of the software hasn't been disclosed publicly?

I ask because some things I might not be interested in testing and others yes.

In for a penny... the Norton 360 one's quite interesting so my curiosity wins:)

No particular reason, I just though I would create an air of mystery. It's a new multi-media presentation programme, and the test should be enjoyable. On completion of the beta test participants will receive a free copy of the final release, which will normally sell for just under £200.

Don't let it be said I volunteered for the monetary value... watch 'em flock now!

Interested, but what email address do I use to contact you?

  WhiteTruckMan 12:37 03 Nov 2009

Thats fair enough. I did wonder if some form of confidetiality agreement might be in force, but didnt specifically ask in case there was.

OTT_Buzzard-just above FE's first post you will see something called 'contact forum editor'. Or alternatively click the yellow envelope next to his name.
