Halo 3 Beta: You’re In

I’m stoked. Emails for the second round of Halo 3 beta invitations were sent today and somehow I made it in. I was pretty pissed when I woke up late on the 5th and found the server at http://halo3.com/ clogged with people trying to get in. I mashed F5 for about 8 minutes anyway and filled out the little form, but had already given up hope. I’ll see you guys this spring.

Here’s the gist of the email:
