Due to some technical issues with the House Party website. There has been some confusion with who is actually a confirmed host for the launch event. I was confused myself until this morning. I emailed them yesterday, to ask if they would clarify if I was indeed a confirmed host. The answer was yes.
“Thank you for your email. We apologize for the confusion and would like you to know that you are in fact a host. Due to the extraordinary interest in this event from people around the world, we’ve experienced some temporary delays due to heavy site traffic. We’ve addressed the issue, and apologize for any short-term inconvenience it may have caused. You should now be able to login to your account and access your party. Thank you for your interest in House Party and have a great day!”
I have received a total of 4 emails from House Party. Here the three main ones in the order I received them. The fourth is the quotes above.
I got this one first.
I received this one second. Which really confused me; because I had already logged in and set everything up.
I got this one and the one in quotes above today.
I think the second email was supposed to go out first; followed by the one I received first. Either way, I just wanted to clear up the confusion for other people. Hope it helps.
Some people have put it in question on how to throw a Windows 7 launch party. I am 29 years old and love to party with my friends. It will be a ruckus night, I guarantee. Nothing like that god awful video in the link. I am having about 15-20 of my friends over to drink “beverages”. We will listen to extraordinary loud music. Courtesy of the media center streaming from my Windows 7 rig; to my living room surround sound. Followed by some intense Halo 3 ODST firefight mode contests. Winners get some of the Windows 7 swag that will come in the party pack. Then as the night wears down we will par take in some Wii Sports Resorts mischief. Sorry Microsoft, we can’t use your products 24/7, or can we? Comments always welcome.
