StarPinger

The fellows at thumblogger have launched a new project: a desktop pinger.

I'm looking for a couple of beta testers who want to test StarPinger.

Beta testers will receive a unlimited license which is valid until the beta periode ends. You can manage unlimited blogs with this license.

Please PM me or send a email to "starpinger (at) thumblogger.com" (or post a little reply) if you want to join the beta team. I will send you a login account which will allow you to login and have a unlimited license.

Please be sure to email if you find problems or have suggestions of any kind.
