MST is Mountain Standard time which is two hours ahead of EST, right? I've never seen anything go by MST before, so i'm not too sure...
Yeah, what the heck is MST?
06-11-2000, 10:27 AM
Mountain standard time, From left to right across the US is goes:
Pacific --> Mountain --> Central --> Eastern
1 hour difference between each one.
06-11-2000, 11:32 AM
anyone know how long the show is?
06-11-2000, 12:06 PM
This demo will take approximately 20 minutes.
It will showcase the key MSHOW features and
also describe the benefits of using MSHOW for
your web conferencing, streaming and interactive

thats true, i hope there are no technical probs, like i'm hearing.
Hmmm...never got an e-mail instructing me on how to join the show.
every single time is like during the work day or morning. Awfully inconvenient times.
06-12-2000, 12:28 PM
well i'm signed up to take it in about an hour, so i'll let u kno how it goes
06-12-2000, 12:45 PM
Hey, I'm having problems getting the link from the email confirmation to work? Anyone have this problem? The show starts at 1PM EST too http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif
06-12-2000, 12:57 PM
Yep having the same link problem. I guess I will miss out on this show. Hopefully they will get it fixed sometime soon. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
06-12-2000, 01:04 PM
yep yep..maybe they're doing this *on purpose*
06-12-2000, 01:56 PM
Well I got through finally...there show started 20 mins late. Then at the end she had problems pulling up the survey, but she said everyone who logged in will get the $20 survey. So hopefully I will still get one. But that is only if you did get through and watched the survey.
06-12-2000, 01:59 PM
I actually just watched this (tail-end) and it worked. They had some streaming audio that actually worked! Checked e-mail and no gift certificate yet, but then again I signed up for the 2 pm MT show and I actually watched the first one. Well, I'll wait and see. Did anyone else get this? I was able to fill out the survey form and the lady said even if you didn't fill it out you'd get the GC since the survey page was slow/congested.
06-12-2000, 02:02 PM
Dunkin' Donut with amazon it can take up to a week for them to send you it. Kind of sucks huh. I am sure they have to submit the emails to amazon and then amazon will send out the GCs.
Just keep checking your email over the next couple of days.
06-12-2000, 02:03 PM
I was logged in and watched the 11AM MST demo. Lots of lag most of the time and I didn't know what was going on but I did fill out the survey. Hopefully I'll get something for my efforts http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

The link to the survey worked. Thanks for saving me the trouble!
06-12-2000, 02:09 PM
heh, i guess we both posted at the same time. oh well. wonder what the different numbers in the end represent?
06-12-2000, 02:14 PM
Just to let you know it won't work like that. You have to put your email address in when you sign in to watch the demo. Then after the demo you will see the survey. The email address will be totally different so I am sure they will kick it out. That's why you have different numbers at the end of your links. Just watch the demo...heck you can walk away you don't have to click anything.
is this really worth the time it takes and all of the effort?
06-12-2000, 02:50 PM
If you have nothing else to do, why not..$20 for 20 minutes (granted you can log in).
06-12-2000, 05:43 PM
I tried the 2pm GMT one today (I am in PST so, 1pm for me) and the show started fine, but like 5 minutes into it I timed out. I called them up and they said one of their routers had gone down. So I will be trying again tomorrow.
06-12-2000, 08:45 PM
Those links work, I didn't watch the show, I just clicked on the survey link that someone posted, and I just got my Amazon.com $20 GC. Very cool :-p
06-12-2000, 09:02 PM
Anyone got that link? The link was edited/removed...if you know what the link was, just email me at [email protected]
06-12-2000, 09:05 PM
Same thing here as what happened to speedfreak.
Crunch It Now
06-12-2000, 09:06 PM
you know what? i signed up for the one this morning, but when i tried to log in when it was about to start, the server was really busy and i couldnt get in. so i just said "forget it" and didnt bother to mess with it again. and now, i just recieved my $20 amazon.com coupon in my email from them! i didnt even watch the stupid demo! cool beans!
06-12-2000, 09:13 PM
Aaargh you're lucky! I couldn't even log in...I emailed them saying that...and as of now, still nothing =[
06-12-2000, 09:28 PM
so I signed up for the one this morning.
couldn't get in.....
so I signed up for the one in the early afternoon.
Couldn't get in that one either.
Got 2 20 dollar gift certificates.....
06-12-2000, 09:32 PM
Since I didn't get my GC, thought i'd sign up again..look what it says now:
We are sorry, but all MSHOW demos are full for the remainder of this week. Please check back next Monday to view next week’s schedule.
That pretty much sucks..
06-12-2000, 09:36 PM
I got in on the 2 PM MST one but then it got congested so i logged off - to my surprise I just got a $20 Amazon GC about 5 hours later - didn't even do a survey
06-12-2000, 09:37 PM
Yep just got mine too. Dang fasteset turn around I've ever had. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
06-12-2000, 10:02 PM
Got mine from the 2pm show but my friend who did the 11:00 am show didn't, weird? I guess I lucked out.
06-12-2000, 10:15 PM
yep, i'm in the same boat (11 o'clock show)..
by the way, I doubt the shows are all full so suddenly, then again, who knows..i'm pretty sure even if the shows do show up again next week, there won't be any $20 amazon gc's..
06-12-2000, 10:24 PM
they had some difficulties with the 2pm show, and they just sent them to everyone who signed in. Maybe that's why they got there before the 11 am show.
If you get one from the 11 am show, post it please.
06-12-2000, 10:52 PM
I couldn't sign into the 11am show...i tried and tried and .... well, you get the picture. But i dunno, hopefully by the time I wake up i'll have $20 waiting to be spent http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
06-12-2000, 11:25 PM
I signed up for today's 10:00am PST show, but I missed it. But I just got the $20 mailed to me. Weird...
06-13-2000, 03:25 AM
I got a GC and I never even showed up http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif I should've signed up more than once!
06-13-2000, 09:54 AM
spent abt 5 mins in the 2:00 show yesterday, got booted and couldn't reconnect. Then got an email saying fill out the survey and get the GC. Survey link was dead, then just got the GC anyway. What a hoot. Free $20 for nothing!! YES!
i'm gonna not show up and just hope they send it anyway...
06-13-2000, 12:59 PM
WHAOH! They sent me a gc for the show I got knock out of yesterday! But before I recived it, I signed up for one today, and just got done with that. Maybe I will get 2 gc's!
06-13-2000, 01:32 PM
i just finish the 11MST show.. it started about 10 minutes late and lasted less than 10 minutes.. the survey at the end was VERY simple.. i hope i get my GC soon like the rest of you did!
06-13-2000, 02:18 PM
I signed up for a show yesterday and forgot what e-mail I sent it to, so I signed up again for the same show. Logged on, five minutes later got disconnected and couldn't log back. Then later that day I received a gc from both e-mail accounts!!! $40 for not much trouble at all I'd say.
And at band camp. . . http://www.geocities.com/bandtour99
I went to the link but it didn't work.
We are sorry, but all MSHOW demos are full for the remainder of this week. Please check back next Monday to view next week's schedule.
Should I wait for next Monday or is there some kind of reversation?
06-13-2000, 02:40 PM

06-13-2000, 08:36 PM

06-13-2000, 09:26 PM

06-14-2000, 12:17 AM
i got 4 gc from them for not even watching the show all did was go and d/l the file and i got all of the gc...
guess it was a good day for me right civic
06-14-2000, 12:28 AM
i'm watching the 2 pm show on thursday so that i can do it from home and not from work. i hope they still follow through on the GC by then!!
I signed up for the 9am show this morning. Of course, what was I thinking, I overslept it. When I came back home tonight, I found a shiny $20 from amazon.com thanking me for watching the MSHOW. If they say so. Never look a gift horse in the mouth I guess
Yeah most of use signed up for this week's shows last week...Sign up next week for future shows...do it, its real easy...
06-14-2000, 08:00 AM
yer a punk xtremed13...i get screwed out of the smallest things, they won't even reply to my emails apparently, and this kid gets FOUR. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif
06-14-2000, 09:11 AM
the demo link is dead. think they caught on to people getting 4 GC's for not even attending? hmmmmm
yeah i agree, i think even the most greedy of us free money grabbers were straight on this one and only did it once.... at least i did, and i am REAL greedy about these things...
Can somebody tell me how to sign up for this show?
I went to the link at the top of this page and the page kept saying me the show is full this week and come back for next Monday.
But I guess everyone else other than me are watching the show right away.
Please help me.
06-14-2000, 04:16 PM
i think i'll sign up for this one next week...i really want to pre-order a PS2 http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif.
