    Would you waste precious time for 1000 beers ?


    I've been wondering around the internet for a place to ask this question and finally stumbled across linuxforums (which seems pretty decent by the way).
    So here's the pitch. A romanian company is giving 1000 beers and some other stuff in a beta-test competition. Free beer.. *droll*. It's one of the most original ways of recruiting beta-testers I've seen so far and it seems the campaign was quite a success so far (commented here , here, here and several other places). Would you waste your time in this beta-test ?

    I'm sure this is a typo, but it's a funny one because I would consider anyone who spent this much of their free time beta testing beers to be pretty droll. Side note: I don't drink.

    In case you didn't understand

    the beta-test is for their upcoming product for mailservers. I already signed up for the competition. Might prove interesting to see a Linux based commercial product being released

    Do you have to drink the 1000 beers at once? and do they give them to you when you finish testing?

    Same here... so, I wouldn't waste my time with it, either.

    You have to pick them up at this charming little bar on the outskirts of Cluj-Napoca. Be sure and rent a strong donkey!

    No, not all at once. You get 1 every week for the next 19 years.

    I would think if you just tested 1000 of their beers they'd award you with a new liver... but that's just me.

    and your stomarch can only store about 16 pints, so how much ye can drink is dependant on how quickly water can be passed. it woul;d take a while pluss ye probly would die of dehydration if that amount of alcohol in one sitting before your liver packs up. I hope guiness brewary company does somthing like this
    All i want for christmas is a new liver....a second chance to get afflicted with Cirrhosis
