News Item [16 Apr 2004] Looking for Beta Testers Back to Top
  • Do you use the CD Player in Windows 2000 or Plus! 98 (also known as Deluxe CD Player)?
  • Would you like to store your CD information once and have it available to multiple applications?
  • Would you like to have input into the creative process of a genius?
  • Do you have a pulse?

If the answer to these questions is "yes" then I want you to be a beta tester! I created a little application called Convert that I would like to have beta tested. It was written for my own personal use, but I thought with a little clean-up it would be useful to others. Please email me if you are interested in beta testing.

UPDATE 13 May 2004: I've not had any emails showing interest, so I'll keep this as a personal app.
