Update on Skyfire Status
Without a doubt, Skyfire is in demand. Over a week ago I downloaded my beta copy and have enjoyed it ever since. It does break my heart a little that not everyone can enjoy it yet. However my hopes were lifted with this recent email concerning Skyfire and the beta program. Hopefully this will left your hearts as well.
Straight from the Skyfire Office:
“Here’s the status of our private beta program. As you know, we have quite a demand for the beta and sign ups beyond what we can support today. On February 8th, we invited a batch of the sign ups to download Skyfire beta 0.5 based on the chronological order in which they signed up. We purposefully kept the number of those first downloads to a manageable number so we could finesse our systems before we increased the pool. We’ve taken the time since February 8th to work out any kinks in our system — nothing of significance, but the normal stuff that comes up when you go live the first time. We needed this time to fine tune the download process, support, etc. and assess our infrastructure relative to real users.
After this period of tweaking and assessing, we are in a position to invite more people to download Skyfire. Very soon, we will invite another batch of people to download in a first signed up, first invited basis. That’s not to say, we can invite every beta sign up to download immediately – the invitations will continue in a measured pace to meet the significant demand for Skyfire. Next week, you will see our external messaging to beta signs up in this regard – blog updates, email blasts and website messaging. We appreciate that you point your readers to our sign up page as that’s the best course of action to get into our private beta program. However, it’s safe to say that there is a wait as we continue in a measured pace.”
So you heard it here. Up until this point every reader of AllShadow.com should already be signed up on the beta program’s sign up page. If you aren’t then you need to get over there and get your beta on. As you can see they are proceeding in chronological order of when people signed up. Do you want to be the last?
