    Hey guys,

    since I heared about the OPO I want to get this phone. But because of this "nice" invite-system it's a constant game of patience, quickness and luck.... unfortunatley I'm not very patient and my quickness as well as my luck weren't sufficient so far... ;)

    So while waiting and "F5"ing all the time I asked myself the question if anybody else's life is being influenced by waiting on the OPO?!

    I -e.g.- have to learn for my last master exams and need the opo (other devices would work too, but OPO would be first choice!) to write and program an android app for my thesis... unfortunately hanging around here costs valuable learning-time :(

    So anyone else around here who better shouldn't be here? ;)

    Yup, invite hunting takes waaaaay too much time :) Honestly, this whole invite system probably cost like a couple of years of human lifetime combined (counting all forum users) ;)

    Nice post... NOT.
    Not begging here, just talking about something else than "me me me" or "stop begging" ... so please leave my thread if you don't have to say something substantial.

    and btw: being away 1 moth of being engineer my work should not be called "homework", dude ...

    More than I could possibly imagine, everything else I've done over the last few days had fitted in between posting on here. Crazy.

    Um. Er.. Think you'd probably be better off staying out the Invite forum all together then.

    I spent 3 solid days trying to get my invite after spending a few weeks half arsed doing it.
    it will pay off :) I got my invite given to me on thursday 31st. so dont give up.

    p.s the sense of loss and bordom you get afterwards from not having to spam the f5 key is quite bad!!
