Normally, I don’t blog this late (or early, depends on how you look at it) but I had to get some work done for a client of mine and as such, I kept checking my email every now and then for new stuff. I was just about to close down when the one email I’ve been waiting for for quite some time finally arrived.
Cerulean Studios just opened up the Trillian Astra Alpha to a bigger group of testers, me included. Now, if you know me, you know that if there’s one thing I try to evangelize, it’s most definitely the software that, more or less, controls my online life. While this piece of software might be a simple replacement for MSN Messenger, AIM, Y! Messenger or Google Talk, Trillian, to me, is truly the hub of everything online.
Back in May 2006, the lead developer of Trillian offered people a chance to be included in the beta testing, I signed up and now, more than half a year later, I’m looking at the goodness that is Astra. I can’t write much about it, yet, since I haven’t anything, but rest assured, over the following days I will certainly blog about my favorite software some more.
For now, you’ll have to make do with this here.
Note: the title refers to a weapon system of the same name as the fourth version of Trillian is called. See here for more information.
