Does the Beta Version allow Linux (as well as Mac) to join in??? I'll switch to the beta later this week if it allows for more users to get in. It will cause the Windows users to download the beta (not a big difference as far as installing goes) and if it allows larger member participation it will be worth the change.
I don't want to wait too long - the longer wait, the more people need to download the beta, so this week should be a good time. We've had as many as 6 people at one time on (not bad at all) and as many as 13 different people have logged in since inception.
Maybe these are NOT record breaking numbers to many people, but we all know that membership numbers NEVER reflect actual active membership in any forum - it's just one of those CLUB THINGS where 95% of everything is done by 5% of the members, and that is just a human nature thing we see in every phase of life.
Let me know about the beta and if it cures your log-in issues, I hate to keep anyone out when there is a cure. It is good that Ventrilo works okay for dial-up connections. It is a little choppy at times, but it still works better than you might think, the only issue is some lag - but having TEXT and VOICE is a great combination ESPECIALLY in the same program.
We've been playing Tiger Woods Golf (04 & 06) and being able to talk to each other while playing is great. We need to now all get on the same version of golf too - having more than one choice in anything is a double edged sword.
GOLFPHYCHO (if you are reading) the 2006 version may be a lot easier to find (it is packaged alone - not in a multi-game pack) and is under $20 at Circuit City - I picked it up Friday there.
I'm hoping we make 2006 the standard (only because I know it will be supported longer) and it has some graphic improvements, and sped-up play in multiplayer (it allows you to continue play while the others are shooting - although I'm not too sure if I really like this feature, it makes it less personal when you DON'T wait your turn) but it allows 4 people to get thru as fast as 1.5-2 players, allowing you to play 2 rounds in the time of just one. Oh the decisions we have to deal with - lol.
Talk later :) and get your knickers or Kilt on and meet you at St. Andrews
