What is the ISPA 2011 and TTBB trials all about

we have just had a load of mysterious post yesterday about these two trials

I have extensively searched, including the link from Matt_2k34 and nothing comes up, the blog is not on any index
What is being hidden from us the PN forum readers?

Re: What is the ISPA 2011 and TTBB trials all about

The email is progressively going out to customers but given that there is a severely limited number of places on the trial it may or may not be gong out to all the customers.
I have no idea how they decided the order the emails were sent out or indeed how many.
There may even, if someone was very clever, be feedback from those registering to the mailing software effectively saying - we have enough volunteers now so don't send any more emails otherwise we will have a load of users installing software for no advantage or reason.
Answers to that will have to wait until the staff come on board.
Note that the first the moderators knew about the email was when I received mine

Uh, Nothing.
Wait for your email. Limited places, high uptake?

and apparently, the new boys on the block get another 3 month free broad band, what about us who have been here a long timer - over twelve years, left out in the cold again
Thats not loyalty - should we complain to Think Broadband and the ISPA

Cheeky - I got an email and was probably one of the first.
Just to add - I won't be taking part for various reasons one of which is that I don't want my computer loaded with crappy software

Loyal customer here too Jim,
Plusnet Acc #1 since 30/01/2003
Plusnet Acc #2 since 18/11/2009
(both are still live)
Can hardly complain at what appears to be random emailing. Its not like PN will want everyone on it, there is such a thing as too large a sample  Undecided

Uhh, What?  Plusnet picks a sample of customers, and you throw your toys out of the pram because your not the first invited?
Grow up.

Note: the software is NOT available on Apple Mac or Linux distros - due to the .NET requirement.

Sounds like a wonderful lack of clue on the part of the developers....  Roll eyes

I'm running this trial and now find that any P2P application or Skype instantly crashes my machine, how wonderful.!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone else finding this, I just hope I can get it off cleanly.

Re: What is the ISPA 2011 and TTBB trials all about

Cant say ive had any issues Johnboy with "P2P apps", more specific may help? its not exactly the most efficient so something like Vuze (Java based, which is also abit resource hungry) may not enjoy running the app if your machines not got that much grunt.
Failing that, it should remove cleanly - direct issues with the app like that can be raised on the TBB forums Smiley

It's a good job Plusnet are sponsoring part of the event, cause they aren't going to get any awards.  Grin

What would be decent Is If those posting here that are taking part could tell us what Its about? If Indeed they are part of this Community?

You can read a little more about it here (no, I'm not taking part).
