Was sitting here messing around with 5048 when it hit me. I started thinking about if it's even possible for a non-softie/partner to get access to the really early and internal stuff. Things like interim builds, different lab-versions etc. I imagine there are people around as passionate about it as I am and there aren't many things I wouldn't do to get into the "inner circle". :)

Anyone got any stories?

10 long years, frig the scene anymore.

Kids think they have deep in sources at the age of 12, why bother caring when no one receives respect anymore, they assume bullcrap, but that's all they are.

They should have like a subscription or similar where you'd get the alphas, no support or anything. Send in an NDA, pay the price and they send you the discs.

Well, that's how I _want_ it to be anyway, totally unrealistic but cool nevertheless. It's a shame the conferences are half-way across the world, otherwise I'd be there in a heart-beat.
