Become a Tester and Report Problems:

If you want to become a tester, please join the Yahoo discussion group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/N1MMLogger/join/. This way you will receive information on bug fixes and new versions. This is especially important during contests, should there be a serious bug. Give out the Yahoo url.

Be sure to download the latest exe. There have been a number of fixes applied since the base install files were created. An E-mail will be send out periodically to announce new versions to the group members.

Please indicate the version number on your problem report E-mails, so that I can determine if the problem has already been fixed. The version number displays on the "splash" screen (the one with the tower) on start-up or can be seen in the Help/About window.

Please report bugs. If I don’t know about them, I can’t fix them. This is a freeware project. It depends on volunteers like you. The quality of this software is directly proportional to the quality of testing. Thanks for your help!

Once you have registered with Yahoo you can find the base files as mentioned in the file ’Install Instruction.htm’ in Yahoo’s Files section and the bug reporting url for the program in Yahoo’s Bookmarks section.

To qualify as a tester, you need a Pentium II class PC and if possible a packet cluster and radio connection.
