...Wow. This'll teach me to check the IV site more than once a week...

Went ahead and sent in a application anyways. Mentioned in the "extra info" that, even though it's a 20" Intel iMac, it's got Boot Camp up and running on it, in case they wanted to test it as well.

Meh, never am a betatester. Hate getting unfinished products. :P

I always wait until the final, polished version.

Icepick doesn't hate you. He just wants you to die!

You should go read some BCE.
Icepick hates everyone and everything.

thats my reasoning, any way


*coughs*

I'm not one of the newer people. This is the first game I get to beta..

A bunch of new members were in the Darwinia beta and everyone was new for the Uplink beta (as it was the first game).

IV seems to mainly look at the system specs people have. I believe they may also give beta slots to some of the more active/core members as a bit of a reward, but I can't say for sure.

Indeed, I must concede that Luigi30[0] and ScareyedHawk raise valid points. Perhaps I should have stated it thusly: Icepick doesn't hate you, he just wants you to die in as painful a way as possible, then resurrect you, and kill you again in a more painful way. He wishes to continue this process until the end of time, if not longer.

A pretty standard Greek mythological eternal punishment sort of thing, then? :)

Yeah, only more than just his liver. It really has to hurt.

Damn. I guess this is what I get for forgetting to beta test that Darwinia Patch.

Yes, but instead of ending each day by going to sleep or committing suicide, he dies in very, very painful ways. Perhaps on one day, he is stretched on the rack until his arms and legs come off and he bleeds to death; the next day, he might be boiled alive; the following day, he might be raped to death, his flesh eaten, and his skin sewn into Icepick's clothing (and, if he is very, very lucky, it will happen in that order).
