PC Load Letter

3:48 pm - Jason G. - Humor

BeeJive IM, a popular instant messaging application, saw an update to its iPhone variant this week which added Facebook support to its corral of services. In the hours after the release, reports began to trickle in that something wasn’t quite right. For what seemed like a random group of people, the screen would read “PC LOAD LETTER” whenever the user tried to establish a connection to any IM service, then quickly switch to a Youtube clip from the movie Office Space.

What had happened? Had Beejive been hacked? Was it an easter egg gone awry? Turns out, it was completely intentional: it’s an anti-piracy measure.

This evening, we’ve received an official statement from Beejive on the matter:

We have recently implemented new anti-piracy measures in BeejiveIM for iPhone. We have tried to keep our approach fun with an error message and a video. But we hope our message is clear: please respect the work of developers.

Raleigh Real Estate

There are some gorgeous homes for sale at Bay Leaf Farms, a gated community in North Raleigh. They have launched a new website, which includes some impressive photos.

There’s also The Residences at Quroum Center which are condos in downtown Raleigh. I can tell you from first hand experience, the views from the building are impressive, and it is within walking distance to my favorite restaurant, Second Empire.

Go check em out, both have new websites.


Greatest Hits

From Bull City Rising:

Somebody at Brightleaf Square has apparently set up a camera looking out their office window, trained on the bridge — probably, we’d suspect, to capture these moments, which thankfully have been all-fun and no-injuries to date. And now, they’ve been set into a compilation, a greatest-hits montage of the bridge’s greatest truck encounters.

This week the viral video hit the popular web site Autoblog, and it didn’t take readers very long the site to narrow this down to our own Bull City. Ah, something we can all be proud of. Er, sort of.
