Subject: can you lend a hand? (load testing at Big Network)
I'm sending this out to a pretty wide audience; my apologies in advance if
this makes your personal spam-o-meter tick upward, or if you receive this
more than once.
We're attempting to load-test our multiplayer Java games on the Big Network
with real live people, and we'd really like as much help as possible. All
you need to do is go to our site and try out a game or two: checkers,
chess, backgammon, Spades, etc. You might even find that you have a good
If you'd like to check this out and lend a hand for a few minutes (hang
out, chat if you like, play a game or two), go to
<http://www.bignetwork.com/cc>. You can register with the Big Network if
you like to get your own username and nickname (yes, it's free), or just
head into the "Central Park" game lobby as a guest. Our games are all
java, so you won't need to do any downloads or anything, but you will need
to use Netscape or Internet Explorer 3.0 or 4.0 (4.0 is more stable). The
lobby is smaller than 100K, so the applet should appear in less than a
minute at 28.8 connection speeds.
If you have a chance to log on tonight or tomorrow, that would be great;
we'll be doing load testing for the next few days, but especially tonight
and tomorrow morning. Of course, you're welcome to come back for a quick
sociable game whenever you like.
Thanks very much for taking the time to read this mail; I hope you'll check
out our site too.
If you have any questions, comments, or just want to harass me for sending
this mail, please feel free to do so! :-)
The Big Network
