Came back, accidentally looked at the forum, saw 5 topics instead of 4, expecting a 2nd part IGF, but no, it's even better than Mark's speech!

And when was it posted? Today! Man, I really hope I'm in. It will destroy my latest (and most important) marks, but who cares? I'm going to nuke my school anyway!

Guess they wanted more from the community this time!

Signed up, and fingers crossed! :)

Hey, I've even done beta-testing work before, so don't think it's new to me. ;)

I think that these days hardware can be so varied, even within similar product lines (hence the call for EXACT graphics card model information) so I'd hazard a guess that a public test is really needed for extensive feedback about system performance and bug-fixing.

I've signed up, of course, but you knew I would anyway :D.

Who wouldn't?

And I just noticed, I live in the same city as one of the devs. Go me! :)

Signed up, came back later and noticed that I should have entered my graphics card info in the box, and... signed up again. :lol:
