    @taphead - A lot of people forget that, or just plain don't take that into account, when they get beta (or, as Google is putting it, "Preview") access to something. While some functions of it are useful, and others may not yet be up to par, we're all basically testers of the software. Thanks for posting the guide, I look forward to looking at it later today.

    @frenchbloke - Obviously not, but it's still interesting to get insights into new web development. It might even prove useful at some point.

    That being said, this poll says a lot:

    @taphead

    Well...gmail was in beta. For around five years.

    Okay, it looks like I've had a couple invites make it through in the last few hours, so I'm assuming some of you that I entered should start getting yours shortly.

    @seantaclaus - I see you!

    Now uh. To get enough invites and friends that this is useful - thinking it would be perfect for online tabletopping.

    Alright, I've just started a wave for testing between Whitechapel members, adding the members that I had via invites that I sent, and those who have posted their wave addresses here.

    For those with Wave that want to be added, but whose address isn't in the thread yet, feel free to add me via seantaclaus@googlewave.com and I'll add you to the Wave. I figure this way it allows those who may not know any others with Wave to still dig in and test it out with the group. Alternatively, you can post your Wave address here if you're comfortable with it, and one of us will add you once we see the post.

    Edit: If we've got this figured out correctly, you should be able to go directly to the Wave by clicking here.

    Interesting. If anyone has a spare invite laying around I'd be happy to help you get rid off it.
    Here's my mail: cowboybe_bop at hotmail dot com
    Also: the lack of surfer lingo in here is reassuring.

    So, this is the Wave invite begging thread? I would be ever so grateful, kind sirs and sirettes...

    Actually kinda heartwarming to see people sharing like this :)

    I hear some people are experimenting with role playing on That Thing. Could be fun. If you have a spare invite, i'm Bergjylt at gmail.com.
