OpenSocial Sandbox Access

November 4, 2007 Leave a comment

There is nothing worse than spending two hours reading code that accesses an important, powerful API – and then realizing, yet again, that you don’t have access to the darn thing. I’m still waiting for Orkut Sandbox access to be turned on for me. and have been for three hours.

Sigh! Come on folks, this isn’t a nightclub in LA with velvet ropes!
