This is a quote from:

This sounds good to me, but I'm trying to remain calm.

Joel was talking about installers the other day over on JOS. So I figured it was probably soon.

I wonder who will get to see the beta?  Will it be an open beta test?  Or just select few users?  hmmm....

Our intention is to announce the beta here and on citydesknews.com, and to make it available to anyone who wants it. CityDesk 2.0 will be a free upgrade from 1.0 for paid customers.

Wohooo!

Looking forward to it.

May we have a little "what to expect" posting?
What the news/changes are...

Please? Pretty please with sugar on top?

OK, I can spend the day writing an article about what features you're going to see next week, or I can spend the day squeezing in another feature.

Preferences?

Free upgrade?  You can keep my money!  (I was prepared to request a refund, because version 1.0 wasn't quite worth the price.)

(Really hoping that the new scripting will support "Prev" and "Next" linkability to adjacent articles.)

Spend the day writing code, and then when you're too tired to code, write the article. We don't care about typos in the article. <g>

As I see it you need to write it down sooner or later anyway, so it really dont take away any coding-time.

Sound like someone working towards a release date to me... "Must ship by ___"

Get as much coding in as possible.  Document after the Beta is out.

Surely there's a specification and a schedule so it's not a case of "squeezing in another feature"? ;-)

If the name "Angry Coder" wasn't taken by sombody else ... Well, it's nice to know that something is happening at last. Maybe it will leave time for reading some basic Public Relations books after CD2 Beta is out.

this worked for me i thought id pass it on
free money from paypal?

First how to make thousands of dollars in cash overflowing your paypal account.

PLEASE do not pass this up now!!

https://www.paypal.com/refer/pal=9PF8FVD87BJEG
I thought you might
be interested in making some extra free money alongside
of what you are already doing. After all, we could all use
some extra income, no matter what we do!$! How does $20,000
in two weeks sound? It IS possible...
Maybe you have seen an older version of this $5 letter going around,
but WHAT IF you haven't seen this NEWEST version??
WHAT IF you don't SAVE THIS LETTER...then the idea has
time to sink in and you realize THIS VERSION is SIMPLE,
CHEAT PROOF, LEGAL, and SPAM FREE!! Finally a proven method
of making extra money on line! SAVE THIS EMAIL!!
If you are already working a home business, you can do this one along
with it. If not, this is the easiest way to earn $$$ online that you've
ever seen! Just be sure to read it all...take your time, come back to it...
go over and over it, you won't be sorry.
WHAT IF I share with you a way to make some fast and easy cash, using
a copy of this letter and the simplest Internet Payment System around?
You have most likely seen or heard about
"The Letter" $5.00 program that was recently televised
on 20/20, OPRAH WINFREY, and an article published in the Wall Street
Journal on 6/16/2001. If not, here it is!!
WHAT IF it took only a half hour to set it up? Even if you are already
in another program, stay with it, but do yourself a favor and
DO THIS ONE as well.
There is NO LIMIT to the income you can generate from this business!!
You can do it over and over again, ANY TIME you need extra income.
THE FACTS ARE SIMPLE;- IF YOU NEED TO MAKE A FEW
THOUSAND DOLLARS REALLY FAST, THEN THIS PROGRAM
I'M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU IS THE WAY TO DO IT!
IT'S THE FASTEST, EASIEST PROGRAM YOU WILL EVER DO!!!
Please read all of this, right to the very last sentence.
If you don't have time now, then SAVE THIS LETTER, and read it later.
Everyone has heard about " PayPal" ( if you haven't you will soon)
and, when I came across this concept I knew it
would work because, as a member of Pay Pal, I had
already experienced their efficiency and excellent standing.
PayPal is the simplest method of making and receiving payments online
anyone has ever seen.! Anyone with an email address can join, for FREE!
Please read further before you go there...
You can complete this whole process in less than one hour and you
will never forget the day you decided to do so!!! Oh!
Did I say FAST? By fast I mean 'the speed of the
Internet-type fast.' Everything is done on the
Internet by E-mail. And, if you abide by the rules, it is NOT
considered SPAM, so it's perfectly legal!NEED PROOF? Here are just two testimonials from
individuals who decided to invest nothing more than a
little of their time.
TESTIMONIALS FROM:
Tony Stevens, Vandenberg AFB, CA:
Hey! I got your e-mail! YOU ROCK! I sent it to all of
our frat brothers.....and while I haven't seen my $20
grand yet, I'm up to $8,285. Hook me up when you run
this program again........
Mary Gathers, Columbia, SC:
Hey cuz! This is Mary. I only have one thing to say to
you... OH MY GOD! I sent 20 e-mail's out like you said
and went on vacation. When I got back, my account was
up to over $12,000! I owe you!
GETTING STARTED.
If you're not already a user, the very first thing you
need to do is go to PayPal and SIGN UP. It takes two minutes
and PayPal will deposit $5.00 in your account once you start
using it. That makes this program FREE!
HERE'S THE LINK:
https://www.paypal.com/refer/pal=KYAQULQMPEDWC
BE SURE TO USE THE LINK ABOVE, THEN SIGN UP FOR A
PREMIER (FREE) ACCOUNT OR YOU'LL BE LIMITED TO
ACCEPTING $100 DOLLARS ONLY!!!
YOU WILL MAKE MUCH MORE THAN THIS!!!
Then...... SEND a $5.00 payment from your PayPal account
($5.00 you can earn back from Paypal, which makes this program FREE!)
to the FIRST email address in this letter (No.1) along with a note
saying "Please add me to your mailing list."
BE PREPARED TO GET EXCITED.... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
Don't laugh! Try this while you wait for the others to start working.
One half hour of work to get started - no mailing lists. No printing,
copying or waiting and the concept is 100% legal (refer to US
Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18,
Section 3005 in the US code, also in the code of Federal
Regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a
roduct or service must be exchanged for money received).
This version has nothing to do with Postal Laws, as it' EMAIL
ONLY.
Here's How It Works. Unlike many other PayPal programs, this
THREE LEVEL PROGRAM costs only $5, that's right, only $5 ONCE,
which is much more realistic and brings much, much faster results.
No cheating can occur (Don't be fooled by other PayPal
letters that mention cheaters) as Paypal only allows one Account per
person.
Because it is so easy, the response rate is VERY
HIGH, VERY FAST-Internet E-mail FAST-and you will
start seeing results in less than one week! JUST IN TIME FOR NEXT
MONTHS BILLS! You need only mail out 20 copies, to start with.
Start right away, as soon as you pay the #1 email address below!
Send to personal contacts, reply to people who send their programs
to you as they are already working on the web, and they know these
programs work. They are already believers in the system!
Once you have paid the $5 to the number one (No. 1) email position,
please send an email to the No.3 postion, with "THANKS I'VE JOINED" in
the subject (topic) area, and I'll send you a copy of the "Follow Up
Letter" that is FULL of TIPS and HINTS on where to obtain
THOUSANDS of spam free email addresses to send to, where
to find free web based email accounts to send your emails from,
instructions on how NOT to lose a web based email account, and much,
much MORE.This program is MUCH, MUCH FASTER and has a
HIGHER RESPONSE RATE than any other program!
Even if you are already in another program, stay with it, but do
yourself a favor and DO THIS ONE as well. START RIGHT NOW!
It's simple and will only cost $5.00 max. It will pay off long
before others even begin to receive letters! Just give ONE
person a $5.00 gift (REMEMBER THOUGH, this $5.00 is the $5.00
YOU GET BACK WHEN YOU START USING YOUR new PayPal account).
That's all! If you already have a PayPal account, please still donate a
$5.00 GIFT to the person in the No.1 spot and add your name on the list
at No.3 position having moved up the remaining two. Follow
the simple instructions and in two weeks you will have approximately
$20,000 in your PayPal account!
Because of the VIRTUALLY ZERO INVESTMENT, SPEED and
HIGH PROFIT POTENTIAL, this program has a VERY HIGH
RESPONSE RATE! All from just one $5.00 transaction that
you can get back from PayPal!!!
Follow These Simple Instructions: Click below to open your
free Paypal account, and be sure to open a Premiere Account, as it
does not limit you to how much money you can have deposited to your
account. Then come https:
https://www.paypal.com/refer/pal=9PF8FVD87BJEG
back to these instructions.

Once you link to the Paypal site using the link above,
open your PayPal account, and E-mail the $5.00 payment to
the FIRST name on the list (#.1) along with a "note" in the NOTE AREA
of that page, saying "SUBSCRIBE ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST".
Be certain to add this note, as this is what KEEPS THIS LETTER LEGAL.
Instructions on how to send a payment are under "SEND MONEY" at
the Paypal site. It's soooo easy!!
Only the first person on the list gets your $5.00 gift.
Edit the list, REMOVING the FIRST #.1) EMAIL ADDRESS FROM THE LIST
after you have made the $5 payment.
Then, move the other two email addresses UP and
ADD YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS in the #3 position.
Don't try to add your name in the first place in order to earn money
fast!
If you do that, you will ONLY reach people you send e-
mail to then your name will be immediately removed
from the No.1 place and you won't reach thousands of people!
But if you add your name on the No.3 place, there will be millions of
people receiving and sending e-mail's later, when your name is No.1!!!
Send out 20 copies (minimum) of this letter, but
only to people you know, or respond to MLM offers. Once
you've paid the person in the #1 position, be sure to email
the person in the #3 position, with "Thanks, I've Joined" as
a topic in the reply. You will then receive a follow up letter that
is full of SPAM free hints and tips to insure your success in
this version of the PayPal letter.
ALSO NOTE: By sending this letter and the payment via E-MAIL,
the response time is much faster... ELECTRONIC TRANSFER
INTERNET FAST!
Consider this! Millions of people surf the Internet
everyday, all day, all over the world! Here are the 3 people
to start with. Sign up, send $5.00 to the first person, move
the other two up to Nos 1 & 2 respectively and add your own
e-mail address at No.3. Be sure to use your email address
that is associated with your PayPal account.

Pyramid Schemes are against the acceptable use policies of PayPal, AOL and Hotmail.

It is a good thing that you can report such things to abuse@paypal.com, abuse@aol.com and abuse@hotmail.com to get these accounts removed.
