Can't they do that number generator thing to see if a beta is coming out?

Like how someone discovered there was a beta 4 coming soon. It was on this site btw.

Not being impatient btw I couldn't care less about beta 7 aha.

You cared enough to make a thread about it. We'll find out in 2 hours.

I'll try to find a link.

Trust me, I have a lot more things to worry about than the next beta, I don't even have space on my iPhone for it.

It sounds like that requires knowing the number of the beta.

Seems more like a simple counter that increases the build number and goes through some (hex?) letter combinations along with it to find a build that might result in something different. It would really only perhaps show something if a build is in fact on a server and the server is configured differently to respond to non-existing files vs. to unavailable/hidden (for lack of a better word) files.

And yet here we are discussing it in a thread that you started (when even tons of those who actually care about the beta in one way or another often don't even post in beta threads, let alone start them).
