Viral testing. How large a conference call can we organize?

We'll be doing a little load testing on the iotum FREE Conference Call application tomorrow afternoon.  I've invited 39 of my friends to join me on a test call.   With a little luck, the facebook viral gods will turn my 39 friends into 390 or so as they each tell two friends and so on and so on and so on… We'll be paying homage to the Breck Girls, if you're old enough to remember them. 

So, if you would like to join us, and you're on Facebook, please feel free to add the following conference call to your schedule.  Invite two friends too!  It promises to be fun, and it should only take 10 or 15 minutes.

    I missed the invitation, but hope the test went ok….they rarely do.

    I was still allowed to 'join' the conference in facebook – even though it is already complete of course.

    The test went OK. We learned some things about loading our app that we'll need to look into in order to better support large conferences, but by and large it wasn't bad.

    And yes, we do have an odd bug that lets you "join" an already completed conference. The bridge doesn't know what to do with your call when you call in in that circumstance, though.

    I am glad that the test went alright, Alec. I'd like to try your app. That sounds like a great alternative.
