Yet Another BeOS Site Bites the Dust

Well, yet another BeOS website has bitten it… this time it was Yet Another BeOS Link (yaBel). Brett finally closed the doors on the site, after a long period of inactivity. Brett had this to say:

I’d like to thank each and every user that ever visited yaBel. You made it an experience worthy of my time, and I’ve enjoyed it very much. Go ahead now, and visit yet another BeOS link.

Regards,
Brett

yaBel was a good site at the time, and held many a mailing list archives, as well as a headlines page showing headlines from around the BeOS communtiy. It was a sad thing when it stopped being updated, and it’s even sadder now that it’s officially of the BeOS links lists (are there still BeOS links lists? :P ). Anyhoos - thanks for riding the wave with us a while Brett… hope to see you on the other side, whichever side that may be. :)

    Are you a QNX troll? The only thing more pathetic than a troll is one who trolls using QNX.

    Sad news. Yabel was the first place that I’d go too as you got a summary of all the major sites on one page. It’ll be missed.

    I figure something more like attention junkie, saying things that you assume will piss us off by nature so we’ll respond to you. Well I guess it worked. But um.. it won’t get you laid or anythng, so… get your kicks while you can, however you can, I suppose.

    Closure of Yabel

    As Earl Grey said at the beginning of the first World War “the lights are going out… and we will not see them light again in our lifetime”. Bedope, Yabel, and Be on the abysss, looks like it won’t be long before its all over for BeOs except for the hard core users.

    Sad to say.

    Re: Closure of Yabel

    we arent. at least not until our server is yanked out from under us for low hit rates.

    Basically, deej & I will post news until the day beos is officially dead. That said, If our server is taken down because our hits drop to nothing, I am not paying extra to keep it up.

    But at the moment, we are clear as far as the eye can see.

    Funny thought I’ve just had, that this would imply the trolls are helping BG stay alive then, because of the
    extra hits :-) .. Maybe we/I should shift from considering them from annoying arrogant pricks
    intolerant of alternative OSes to some sorts of hunchback tards, basically not doing much
    harm and even helping out a little :) ..

    Oh wait, nerds surf the web with Lynx, no ? Aye caramba, so much for my theory…

    someone pays you to surf and troll alt OSes forums? wow, it’s even more sad (working for MS’ PR dept.) than being a troll, congrats for the job title BTW :)
