Volunteers for Beta test needed

Jazz 9 January 2008 43

About mid last year we started to think that the RiotACT needed a facelift and you may recall us asking how you used the site. Whilst some indicated that they loved it enough shared our sentiments that we needed to try something new and fresh. Over the last couple of months we’ve been working behind the scenes on our new Riot and you may have noticed a few changes in preparation for its unveiling over the last week, most notably the category reorganisation.

We’re almost at a point where we want to release it on the unsuspecting public (although i’ve probably just given away our master plan.. doh!) and need some volunteers to help with a beta test. If you’re at all interested reply below and we’ll be in contact.

Konqueror and Safari both use the KHTML rendering engine. Safari is based on Webkit (the open source component which is used for the actual page rendering etc.).

There are differences between the two but these seem minor (at least in my operation of the two).

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KHTML

Aw don’t wipe him – he’s the most entertaining poster on this site! Regardless of whether he knows it…

Good one Maelinar insult one of the people who can wipe you from the history of Riotact.

@Skid – its more humourous than that. Ever increasing photo presence of him in ‘romantic’ shots, and wistful poses.

Methinks the bell is gonna start clanging pretty soon, if the photographer is still the same person. Sorry to break the news to you JB, it may as well be watermarked over the photos though.

can have a crack at it from an interstate feed if needed.

So, he’s become a retiree, touring the caravan parks of Australia?

Reward: lead tester gets promoted to trial-deputy admin ?

“if i released it to everyone, i may as well skip testing all together”
MS would…

Jazz Jazz 7:52 am 11 Jan 08

mostly because i dont want to overload it shauno. Its on a home PC and doesn’t have the speed. but also if i released it to everyone, i may as well skip testing all together

Why dont you just have a link at the top of the page near the log in. Saying I am willing to test the new site. If you say yes the new site is loaded with the option of going back to the old site.

Jazz Jazz 8:35 pm 10 Jan 08

A reward? hmm, i have something in mind for recognition of the effort. lol and its more than just you just get to keep using it.

Thumper will be beta sausage testing then…

Saw a hard drive once that would fit nicely in an old washing machine – about the same size as the milk separator we used to have on our farm… Think it spun about the same speed too.
Skid: “working out how the crap we missed and sorting out listed defects that made it to users” I can recommend a course Comcover does called Risk Management Fundamentals…

I spend half of my days Alpha, Beta, and then Production & Patch testing our finance systems, and then working out how the crap we missed and sorting out listed defects that made it to users.

As much as I like it, I like it primarily because I get paid.

Could voluteers be rewarded with IOU pints at O’Sheas or O’Neills, or is it a case of “For helping the Johnboy and the Jazz test the product, you get to continue using the product”?

Where -is- Johnboy these days, anyway?

I built Thumper’s home computer from bits and pieces, an old washing machine, and a number of 5c coins.

The CD tray is a drinks holder, and the A: receptacle is an ashtray.

I’m surprised that the sizzling sound when you turn it on hasn’t turned into anything fatal yet…

Thumper Thumper 3:44 pm 10 Jan 08

I have absolutely no idea what anyone here is talking about.

Not one iota, not a sausage, nothing….

Ok, so even IT nerds forget to close HTML tags…

Cameron Cameron 3:41 pm 10 Jan 08

I am an IT nerd, and this proves it: I’m shocked that someone didn’t know what a beta test was.
