Maybe a small online party celebrating 1000 build soon?

For all Idea-fanatics like me.... those on hunger strike, too.

Great idea.
Anybody's got a bright celebration idea?

Alain

PS. I have a problem writing sentences without the word "idea". See! One
more. Any idea for a cure? Gosh. Another one.

it would be fun to attempt an all night bug fixing/reporting session
based on build 1000 and then the next day spew out build 1001 in EAP.

Sounds good.


Suggestion 1:
-


Let's make build 1000 the first - and only ? - nightly build.
As EAP users span the whole planet, we could make it a Icelandish
24-hour night, and spend a full-day super-testing build 999.

Rules :
- JetBrains agree to publish build 999 at a given time, and
- we agree to spend the night/day testing it.
To make it useful to build 1000, JetBrains would say what they expect
from us, and what they especially need us to test. (Ex. LVCS, VCS, Mac
L&F, Mac Keyboard, XML editing performance, .......)



Suggestion 2 :
-


During that long-night, every 2/3 hours, JetBrains would publish an
updated "Progress Report", with personal details and anecdotes, to make
us feel what's happening in their den, and feel the sweat, as they
receive and process our bug reports.



Suggestion 3 :
-


During that long night, every hour, one JetBrains member takes the buck,
and tells us about him/herself, his field of expertise, etc...



Suggestion 4 :
-


During that - long - night, every hours, 1 free personal license, for a
freshly posted bug/request that gets planned for Aurora, above the Low
level,



Suggestion 5 : write your own one here.

I think all of the suggestions are good, I'll add that in order for it
to work right, we setup some kind of chat room where we can all keep
each other awake, and talk to the JetBrains developers live. File the
bugs in tracker then report it to the group, or be able to get help
tracking down a bug from people. People would then be able to say stuff
about themselves, and Alain can provide the stand up comedy he usually
is so kind to bestow on us... but live!

We could call it... JetBrains Night Live.

I think it will take JetBrains doing a shift because if you go around
the world with bug hunters (that would be us) they'll end up being up
more than 24 hours.

P.S. I wonder how many connections an AOL Instant Messenger Chat room
can handle! Anyone know of a pre installed chat room we can all just
jump into?

oh yeah and it doesn't have to build 999 or anything like that, I think
they could pick a target build, one that would become GM maybe? and we
could hammer on that. If JetBrains doesn't want to do that, how about a
big Aurora Pre Release party on line?

Suggestion 6 : worldwide meetings
-


For the official release day.
Let's choose a few cities, and see who can come. There are a few noses
I'd like to punch :)
WebCams are welcome.


Suggestion 7 : release party in Prague.
-




Why don't they release during the summer :(

Hehe...

I thought I was a version fanatic!

I bow before you and whatever will happen I will (at least virtually) be
there!

It could be a community thing in terms of not only have JetBrains people
introduce themselves but also us EAP users.

Heck, whoever can will bring their webcam...

I'm looking into the possibility of hosting the party virtually on WebEx if
the company will let me.

Or a feature search session. Let's put some Easter eggs into 1000, and those
that won't be found will stay forever=)
Though I don't know what other developers think, just another idea.

Personally, I think IRC would be better suited to large gatherings.

If we get the build for next Thursday as I'm also hoping to hit my goal of
loosing 20kg then ( 18.9kg currently ). w00t.

Reminds me of the "bug days" often held with open source projects....

Lets hit it hard :)

Come join me in #intellij on irc.freenode.org ;)

I'm afraid we're too late for the party - the build number is already well over 10000 (see attached pic).

Jens
