[ This is a test blog, with posts about the development of b2, and comments ]

[ Bugs/suggestions ? Check the Forums ! ]


OK, now this is just plain nasty, Fredrik T., whoever the fuck he is, submitted b2 as his work on linuxd3v, and he even used the description I used on HotScripts !
Someone got to stop this, for b2 is still copyrighted to me, there's no license to allow you to re-release it under your name, and I don't see thievery as a part of Linux values.

OK, solved.
Thank you for all your support, guys !

ian, it seems the guy IS the site owner. I'd rather contact their host.

Re: Mark Howell's excellent suggestion.

Servers have logs. The history/development of B2/Cafelog is *very easy to document.

It might help if more b2/Cafelog users would remind "Fredik T" of this.

I sent him a request that he should either (1) remove b2.blog, or (2) give Michel V. full credit and give the copyright notice.

If a decent number of people/ B2 users contact him . . .

But who know how these people think.

Still, it's worth a try.

If you're reading this and not yet contacted "Fredrik T", please do.

I am the webmaster and project admin of linuxd3v.net
I deeply apologize for the rude theft that one of our developers have made, he annonced his project to us, and we accepted. Sadly it was your program who was ripped off.

I can assur you that we take FULL distance from any forgery.

Oh yeah, he was instantly kicked from the crew the minut this was discovered.

Also, thanks to you for your submissions, or this would have caused an even deeper scandle.

Hope you accept our appologiez and we promise to be more active in the future projects.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
