I take it then, that even if you have been accepted into windows live mail, and receive the message "We will contact you as soon as a new beta is available in your country. Thank you for your patience!", that it doesnt mean you will definately get in to windows live messenger beta? ah well

If you haven't gotten your invite, be sure to check you junk mail....lately lots of MS mails are getting thrown away.

Did anyone else notice that the installer was uber fast and only asked for shortcuts to the desktop and quicklaunch, not all that other junk it usually does?

I still waiting for the Download E-Mail...

But a big lol at the Frechie bug :p

(Quoi que je m'en fou personellement... :D)

I'm bilingual, so It doesn't matter to me ... But I'd like an activation so I can start posting some feedback :D !

Guys, can anyone leak it please?

so that non-testers can use it.

thank you.

It pretty much is already leaked, just you won't be able to logon to it ...

Anyways, any Canadian got a download link yet ? I can't even get the newsgroups and my participation supposedly is "active" according to Connect ... :p

Finally got it to work, silly microsoft. Not sure if this is just Gmail, but i just right clicked-->view source and it was the link that started with

http://ideas.live.com/AcceptInvitation.aspx

and just paste into browser.

Trickiest beta to get hold of for a while ;)

GMail sucks so bad sometimes. Especially with any type of forms or CSS.

Anyway - the interface is def going to take some getting used to, but the colors - man, they really need to work on that. Especially the header of the buddy list. See attached image.

I am also from Canada. Here is an announcement from microsoft.beta.messenger.announcements:

Canadian beta testers!

We have a bug in ideas.live.com that will make it so all you will see is

French text when you go to the site. We are fixing the bug right now and

hope to have ready sometime tomorrow. In the meantime we are going to hold

off sending you the download/authorization link. I know this will disapoint

all of you who are following the newsgroups and wouldn't mind wading your

way through the French text. But there are hundreds of you who are not on

the newsgroups yet who will be suprised by this poor experience. Thanks for

your patience!

Thanks. :)

I take it then, that even if you have been accepted into windows live mail, and receive the message "We will contact you as soon as a new beta is available in your country. Thank you for your patience!", that it doesnt mean you will definately get in to windows live messenger beta? ah well

I think all Windows Live beta testers got that, regardless if they're in Mail, Messenger or whatever else there is.

Yesterday I wasn't able to sign up to the newsgroups, so I just did it.

When I set a password, is it normal that I can create another by re-loading the page?

i think canada should physically detach from USA because of this! We dont want to be called north "americans" anymore!

Everyone take your pet beavers and slead dogs to PULL canada away!!!!!

And if that doesnt work we'll retreat to our igloos!

ONWARD!

:p
