Dane announced today over at the BuzzLog that the site will be moving again to another blogging system. The new page is located here http://www.xanga.com/lebuzz.
Dane explains the reason for the change:
We moved off blogger.com because we didn’t like the “Next Blog” feature in blogger.com’s navbar. It linked to pages from unrelated blogs that could contain anything from porn to spyware.
So check out the new site and make sure you update your website links and bookmarks.
The schedule includes several shortform and longform technie shows, hourly news, even inspirational programming, in addition to a 24/7 extreme music mix.
Also, BeOSRadio now offers four different types of connections for streaming audio. Now that they have teamed up with Abacast, they not only provide the Shoutcast-style streams, but two additional Abacast-style shoutcast streams for use with the Abacast audio player plugin. You can read more details about the new streams over at the Buzzlog or BeOSRadio.
So head on over to BeOSRadio and tune in.
More progress is being made on the Stargate SG-1 game for the BeOS. There are a few updates that I missed over the past few weeks.
First, a new graphics artist named BePower (Paul Curie) joined the project, so there are now 2 graphics artists working on the game. BePower already has some images on line over at his website here (if the site is down, check again later) that will be integrated into the game. These images are still a work in progress, so they’re not complete. Aries Mu is also working hard on the design of the stargate that will be used in the game.
Also, the Screenshots section has been updated with new images of the current state of the game and the editor. Furthermore, a new article has been added to the ‘Making of’ section which explains how the map works in relationship to the 3D environment. If I get the chance, I’ll translate the french ‘Making of’ section into english for our english readers.
BeGroovy’s host will be physically moving locations on the 25th between 12am and 6am. Expect a short bit o’ downtime. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for the understanding.

They are nominated for the follwing categroies; Best Game, Best Writing, Best Story, Best Setting, Best Puzzles, Best Medium, and basically everything except one category.
You can find more info and the list of nominations over at the XYZZY news page here: 2004 Finalists
From their e-mail to Begroovy:
We’re particularly happy since both the nominations and the actual
awards are voted on by the players themselves, and we’re thrilled that
people have so thoroughly enjoyed Future Boy!

Acording to multiple sources (National Public Radio, CNN, USA Today, and others), the Nation of Brazil is going to discontinue the use of the MS Windows Operating system on all of it’s government computers. According to sources, Brazil intends to switch to NON-proprietary software to better control and protect its data. This is raising a major stir in Redmond, leading Bill Gates to lobby for a meeting with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. As if kicking the monopolistic software company off government computers is not enough, Brazil also intends to push its citizens to switch.
My editorial additive content:
I think BGA should be lobbying for a meeting with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
…Who could hang a name on you?… Oh, wait, that’s Ruby Tuesday.
As many of you have probably already heard, it appears Blue Eyed OS is out of the OSBOS game. While it is sad to see a post-Be effort to die - the hidden silver lining, as told by Michael Olivera on the Haiku mailing list:
The remaining BlueEyedOS developers and me wants join in Haiku project.
So, while sad, this could give a few extra coders to strengthen (maybe speed up) Haiku development.
Seems that was a premature death call. From Guillaume himself:
It seems that Michael (Oliveira), our webmaster, concluded a ‘bit’ too quickly because the website www.BlueEyedOS.com is down for some days (due to a technical issue), that the BlueEyedOS is dead.
It is not.
He also mentions that Zeta has been a high priority for him lately, explaining his recent lack of activity.
What I do hope now that this non-death has gone public via the Haiku mailing list, is that communications between team members does increase, and we still see some of those developers helping out more in Haiku (and possibly vice versa) in the form of code/knowledge sharing and the like.
