Software testers wanted - I still need 1 more

P: n/a


To test a new piece of software designed to help with (among other
things) eCommerce WWW site development. The software is fairly easy to
use but you must fit a profile. Retail price is 120 GBP and I'll email
full releases to anyone who helps FOC of course:

Profile:

I'm looking for someone who fits a profile -

You must be willing to spend some time with the software and report back
as a matter of urgency.

You must have simple back end programming skills Perl PHP etc (HTML/JAVA
won't cut it) but you don't need to be a Guru. This is back end software
not web page design stuff. If you can patch osCommerce your can probably
do this.

You could be developing on Win32 or Linux platforms. You dont need to be
a professional programmer but -
You should be able to point me at at least 1 web site you developed
personally so I can see what sort of things you do.

Please list briefly the languages you use and hardware/OS. I DONT want
your CV or life story !

You must have executable access on your server. EG. You should be able to
use PHP exec() function or similar for your language.

You don't need to be a genius - just be able to reply by email asap on
your findings and opinions on the current state of play.
The software may be used by you commercially in accordance with its
standard license in return for your help.

I expect most people wouldn't need to spend more than a couple of
hours with it to able to understand it pretty well.

You will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

If you want to help - in the first instance you can send me some details
to:

beta001
blueyonder.co.uk

Top line is username bottom is domain put the obvious between them.
This is a transitory email address which will vanish soon.

Thanks - john

Just want to get this spammer's (or worse) headers into the
Archives.

You'd be nuts to mail him. And insane to install his software.

The fact that he actually thinks anyone will trust someone who
is behaving with the evasiveness of troll/spammer/cyberstalker
indicates that _he_ has a few loose screws.

Looks like a complete con job. 'His' software is probably some
malicious program he downloaded from a windows' script kitty site
that's written to trash Linux boxes.

We do have that "flatfish++" (AKA you-name-it) anti-linux punk
posting here all the time.

Don't touch that software unless the source code is available on
a web or ftp site. Full open source.

Just want to get another kookfart of mine into the Archives.
Rest assured, Beavis. Your deranged rantings are now forever enshrined in
the annals of Usenet.
You'd be nuts to mail me. And insane to listen to any advice of mine.
Right.
The fact that I actually think that I'm going to win any admiration
by foaming at the mouth and ranting like a loon indicates that _I_
have a few loose screws.
No. It's not a few.
Looks like a complete Usenet Beavis. Please don't give any weight to
any kookfart I post to usenet. I'm a well-known kookbag, and Usenet's
official Village Idiot.
Listen, Mr. Village Idiot. You've been shirking your duties. You have a
quota of at least four kookfarts a day, seven days a week, and you've been
slagging off the entire weekend. You have some backlog to catch up to. Hop
to it.
We do have that "Usenet Beavis" (AKA you-name-it) kookbag
posting here all the time.
Not all the time, Beavis. Only when your lazy ass feels like it. You
better whip that lazy ass of yours into shape, if you know what's good for
you.
Don't touch my kookfarts unless the Beavis FAQ is available on
a web or ftp site.
It is, Beavis.

Newly created sockpuppet.

Stinking troll. Or worse.

Probably the OP.

He looks to be stupid enough to do something like this.

Trying to hide his tracks so he leaves more than he needs to in
order to post some impotent childish insults that I won't even be
downloading from the server.

No, you can't be any worse.
