    Did you not understand the message from the chat room? You missed a CE assignment last week so no license for you :)

    (Just kidding...maybe...) :)

    Do we wait up or go to bed now and get up early in the morning?

    Did we ever get that feedback on questions from DirecTV?

    Once the cat is out of the bag will all of us here be revealed as alpha testers or should we keep quiet about that? I also remember from past field trials that the standard procedure is to not mention any bugs or problems with previous versions so I'm guessing that applies here as well?

    Yes, no mention of previous problems (that have been closed).

    Generally don't make much of your having been a tester, but people will know from the first look

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I've sent out keys (S/N) for everyone who's sent me an email. Have fun :)

    Got 'em, thanks!

    Laptop is up and running, have issues with the desktop since I just swapped out the wireless router and it and the security software aren't playing nice.

    Sent number 1, working on number 2.

    Number 2 sent.

    Waiting now for serial numbers.........

    I think I need to just keep this forum open all day. Things just "happen" very quickly.

    If the software is released tomorrow, you will have MANY wives and mothers in a "tiz." I can see it now, "I'm sorry dear, presents will have to wait until I finish this download and install.":lol:

    (There will be a VERY selective invite tonight/tomorrow) then there will be a submission webpage that will be used to select the rest. The submissions won't close until Wednesday so there likely won't be many more released before then.

    You guys are the first group, of course. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Glad to be a part of the alpha testing but was just wondering, how did a noob like me get selected in the first place?

    I think it was the bribe I heard you sent out... :)

    I wasn't involved with DIRECTV's selections on this field trial, so I really don't know.

    Often DIRECTV sets criteria, then the configuration posts are examined for suitable candidates.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I'll be out of pocket tomorrow afternoon so don't be doing stuff without me. ;)

    There's a co-worker birthday get-together on the Coaches Bar balcony overlooking the Red Hawks game. Much drinking and BSing but not much game watching is expected. :lol:
