If you're as crazy about Monad as I am, well, here's your chance to sign up as a Beta tester and give it a whirl.

  1. Set up a passport account. If you already have a passport account, sign in using your account in step 2, and then skip to step 6.
  2. Go to http://beta.microsoft.com - you'll need a special invite password to sign in with (if you want it, email me and I'll send it to you)
  3. Complete the survey.
  4. It will take about 24 hours for the account to become active.
  5. Sign into beta place with new account.
  6. Under Modify participation Info select Modify Newsgroup Login and set password.
  7. Follow instructions to set up newsgroups.

Enjoy!
