For those of you that haven't read What's New:

Call for Beta testers

Well, i know it's not directed at me, but i believe even the experienced ones had to become this way. You have to start once. You've really got nothing to lose if you apply. Other than your sanity, but i think losing that was a condition to enter the boards, so ...

Since one of the requirements is a variety of different Mac computers and operating systems it depends upon whether you fill a gap. If you have one that no one else has you probably got a better chance of being accepted even without testing experience.

The part about not being told no is irritating since you are never certain when Jeff has enough new testers. Waiting for the announcement of the release isn't the best solution.

There is a required section that talks of technical experience... Besides playing around with my computer and learning things by experience, I've only taken an intro to computers class...

He doesn't want every tester to be an expert, but they should be able to explain what's going wrong and be able to follow his instructions for a fix.
