This just came to my attention. Some people might not be seeing all of the headlines, those marked as "Announcement" and "Community", which is quite strange. To fix that (untill I can see what's going on), on the left, click on Topics, then on Announcement then Community. If you go back to the homepage, you'll see them and it won't happen again, hopefully.
Just read this and thought it'd be interesting to post (if not, leave a comment). In the upcoming Office 2003, users will be able to block the documents they created, even from printing, and also set an expiration date (I wonder if the reader will see a message saying "this document will self-destruct in 5 seconds).
How? Office 2003 will for the first time include tool to restrict access to it's documents. This is the first of a series of steps that Microsoft plans to implement, on their road to Windows Rights Management Services. Fun...
I would just like to write a note about something quite sad, which affects a beloved member of our community. We all know Koki and the amazing job he's been doing, as a liaison between the Western and the Eastern BeOS community. Unfortunately, his father has become quite ill, and obviously, Koki went back to Argentina to be beside him in this time of need.
I'm sure that everyone will have a thought, even a prayer, for Koki and his father. May he recover swiftly.
Welcome to the new BeOS/Zeta news site. We hope you enjoy your stay and definitely keep coming back. How did Is Computer On come to life? After I left TBJ, I wasn't sure what I was going to do next and took some time to think about it. Then after talking to some friends, members of the BeOS community, some of which i've known since I came
into it, I got the feeling (confirmed by others) that there was the need for a new news site, and thus, Is Computer On was born...
