How long after Jeff Vogel closes the beta-tester application form does it take before you know you're a beta tester (or, you can give up hope)?

Microsoft is like a herd of dragons with amoebic dysentery: massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.

Death takes a holiday.

How not to do it: "Hi, Mr. Dragon. I've come to destroy you, so would you mind if I borrowed your Fireproof Skin Balm recipe first?"

Figure on at least one week and maybe a few more days after that from the time that applications end. Jeff only sends replies to the ones he wants.

You can expect another wait of 3-4 days from the time you send in your non-disclosure agreement.

After that you get your instructions (very brief ones) and information on how to access the latest beta version.

PHEW! I was already getting tense and worried. (If you haven't guessed yet, I signed up to test Avernum 5.)

A bit belated but welcome to spiderweb software. Please leave your sanity at the door.

btw: Your sig is the best I've seen for years.

I have just realised I have reached 200 posts. The problem is I have absolutely no idea how I made them!

Thanks! The first part is adapted from something I read on the Ambrosia Software webboard, the third part something I said on that board, and... well, I'll let you find out about the second part. :-J
