In about 5 days, ownership transfer wil occur to ZDNET inc. They've contacted me some time ago and really dig it. Apparantly there's some new kind of commercial opportunity there that I fail to see. They assured me that nothing fundamental will change to the MB and that both Iczelion and I will still be monitoring it. It will give more options in terms of hardware support behind it with as only drawback a bit more of a commercially oriented look and feel. (whatever that may be) So I'm very happy and eager to make the transition and I hope that we'll reap the benefits of this deal quickly. :) Laters -H-

I'm really sorry you did this. What made this message board work is that it had no commercial interest, and reasonable traffic. Now you have a keeper, with a mission. Good luck. Please expunge my username and password and any postings from the database, and anything else you turn over to zdnet. Best, Scott
