Call for beta testers!

As you can probably tell by our recent posts, we have released a few new products…and we also have other products coming as soon as we get our coffee machine fixed. 🙂

We need some happy and trustworthy mutants to help us test product updates and upcoming products. If you are interested in helping, email our CEO Steven Pignataro….I’m kidding! He will be mad if he gets all that mail. Just post a comment to this post and make sure that you enter a valid email address.

Just one thing – Please don’t volunteer unless you have the time to download and test Joomla! products on a regular basis.

As a compensation for testing our products, you will receive a hefty discount if you decide to purchase any of them.

Thank you!
