ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

They could get rid of the ridiculous license fee and go subscription only with that sort of filth.

The BBC do this surprisingly often with the "breaking news" rolling text banner thing. I think they have someone typing in the text live to get it out as quickly as they can and often only see the typos (or have them pointed out, after they've gone out "on air". They are usually pretty quick to correct them, though. When I was working, we had a big screen on the wall in the coffee shop at work that had BBC News 24 showing, all the time. We'd often sit and play "spot the typo" in the banners, and take bets on how long it would stay up before being corrected.

The texts don't work with Cornish spelling or pronunciation
