i brought it up anyway, since there's a lot we *can* talk about with
beo, especially things like:
- is it a bandwidth hog that contributes to the costs?
- can we ask for monies on it when the browsers don't belong to us?
- other ideas we may miss...

well, a) i don't know what access he has since dan didn't let me
know, and i've been trying to get the beonix archive downloaded so i
can upload it, and i'd hate to do it if things are being moved...

and b) we *can* limit access, particularly since much of what's being
discussed on theforum is *precisely* because access was handed out
without anyone knowing...

i'm just surprised is all, given the commentary about limiting access
and working up a process to determine trust for people access is
handed to...  i don't mind the help, but i am surprised since it goes
against what dan has said...
