Comments on the following newsitem

It is with some regret that I inform you that BAM! has been bought by Samsung. Samsung will use BAM! to power their version of HTC's "Power To Give". We agreed not to disclose the selling price, but it's a number consisting of mostly zeroes. Samsung will keep using the current server infrastructure and will run BAM! as a nonprofit. Therefore they ask you to keep donating to the server costs.

As a courtesy Samsung will allow BOINCstats and BAM! to keep running as usual so you shouldn't notice any difference. However, from now on, support and development will be provided by Samsung. Unfortunately, their Korean developers do not understand English so your questions and bug reports should be posted in Korean. Google translate may help with that.

It has been my pleasure giving you BOINCstats and BAM! and I hope you will keep enjoying the site under the new management.

Willy.

Sounds like you're taking a page from BURP's playbook...

Thought the same, since Janus did not set up something this time...

You didn't notice the spider crawling around the edges of the page?

Well, I cannot determine if it was there on the 1st of April, but I saw it on the 2nd. Maybe because my browser wasn't refreshed or whatever - but I answered to the "cleaning post".
