Anyone need a beta tester?


Hi,
I need to build up some experience reading code, and seeing how it plays out when run. Apparently beta testing is good for that, so message or reply if you have something you want a hand with, I'll research what I don't know and be patient with bugs.
Oh and I wasn't entirely sure where to put this post, so I apologise if it's in the wrong section.
Jay

I've got a couple of little programs that could profit from a test. One is a quick-and-dirty graphical front end to Philip's Music Writer. To test that, you'd need to have pmw itself installed and also know a bit about musical notation. The other is a program for playing Sudoku.

If you're interested, I could send you tarballs.

I play piano and guitar as a beginner so I can read sheet and tabs. I'm something of a maths nerd too, so sudoko is something I'm rather good at. This sounds perfect. I'll download pmw now.

I've just discovered that you can't attach tarballs to messages here. We'll have to find another way. I suppose you could PM me with an email address.

You know, I would, but for the LIFE of me I can't work out how to send a pm. I'll add my email to my profile instead.

You must Never put your email address on a public page. That's inviting every spammer on the Net to target you! I've sent you an email with one of my email addresses.

I'm not allowed to access that page. I am very new after all. I guess I just need to give back to the community first.
