Whoo Hoo I got one!!!

posted in: Tech | 2

Yeah I got an invite to the Alpha test of Trillian Astra. What did you think I was talking about? Is there something else going on this week? 😉

Anyway, I had actually forgotten all about signing up as being interested, it’s been that long. I actually haven’t been using Trillian a whole lot lately. Oh it’s still there on my laptop, but since I really haven’t had the time to be available for IM of late, and even when I am I’ve been more involved in using Gtalk on my Blackberry, or Twitter as opposed to running another program. I hadn’t even bothered to install it on my new desktop yet.

Of course, that just meant that when I got the invite, I had a machine that doesn’t have any of my Trillian information stored already, so installing the alpha was really no risk to me.

A quick peek at it shows me that the program has grown some, adding widgets, a smoother interface, etc. I’m sure I’ll have more to say as I use it, even if I still don’t have a lot of time to IM with folks. 🙂

    Is there any chance you could send me an invite for this? I’ve been trying to get into the alpha testing program for months now, since I’m a Trillian skinner, and want to get a jump start on learning to skin it.

    Hopefully I’ll hear from you soon. 🙂

    Jordan,

    AFAIK, they haven’t made any invites available to alpha testers. All the invitations are coming straight from Cerulean Studios itself. So as much as I’d love to help you out, I don’t believe I can.

    If I discover differently, I’ll blog about it!
