    XM Testers Wanted

    I need a few willing participants to help me test some changes to the XM control code. I'm pretty sure I've tackled the issue with the XMDirect not being initialized properly, but I'd like to further fine tune the control code and pinpoint a unicode bug over the next couple weeks. I'd like a mix of XMPCR and XMDirect owners with any type of cable hack. Anyone using non-english character sets are also welcome (unicode bug). You'll be expected to spend a small amount of time tweaking and testing a few timing settings and communicating your results to me via email. PM me with a working email address if you would like to help.

    I sort of understand, but then you do have a touchscreen - would it really be that difficult to toggle between the two for a week or so? I'll even understand if you decide to switch back to FP at the end of the test. (props to the 9 fingered machine gun toting, chainsmoking, lesbian cat-monkey)

    I'm going to blast out an email with a short survey and an URL to the test build as soon as I have 8-10 testers, but the more the merrier. C'Mon folks, we're half way there - need more takers before 4:00 PM today or I'll have to wait until tomorrow.
