did it actually say that ur not gonna test? i got one that said: Thanks for wanting to participate in the Xbox™ Live beta. Here's a quick update on our progress...

We selected our initial beta testers this week and will be adding many more over the weeks to come. If you have not yet been contacted, we will be contacting you on or before September 20th regarding your status to potentially be included in our beta test program.

We want to thank you for your willingness to participate in the program, but want to let you know that we have many more applicants than we have openings. However, remember that this is just the beta, and we're working feverishly to bring to you the actual Live service on November 15th, 2002. This is when we will have made the necessary tweaks to create the ultimate online gaming arena for you and your friends.

In the meantime, check out http://www.xbox.com/live/ for the latest news and updates.

Thanks again for your desire to participate in the Xbox Live beta.

That COULD be the proper site... but just to be sure, you can feel free to e-mail me the link to the site that you have. I can easily verify it for you. If you do not have the $61 to pay for the kit... please pass along your friends info to someone nice.... and helpful... and with an odd username... like me :) Otherwise I will have to try my chances with the selection on Sept 20th :D

Forward it to dustin@xboxaddict.com

Don't have to give me the personal info, just the mail. I can then tell you if it's real.
