Hi.
We still didn\'t got any response nor sorry letter from the one who have distributed the private beta version.
We think that currently we will put the FreeDO project on hold, waiting for an excuse letter.
The final \"unhold\" date and reason will be considered latter.
All team will be accessible on forums, and will be ready to answer your questions.

Latest news: Our project server died last week. But I\'m happy to report that we\'ve replaced the poor thing (a P3-550 which worked 24/7 for past 3 years) with a new Dell PowerEdge P4-2.8 with 1 GB of RAM and 360 GB of storage. A funny note: the P3 server cost $1500 when new, but the P4 only cost $800 with everything! 5x performance and 3x storage at 1/2 the price. Technology is wonderful. And most importantly, troosh and admin are back at work with the next version! Stay tuned. We all hope that troosh had a great vacation, and that admin will cointinue to recover.

A death has occurred in the FreeDO family!
August 6 2002 - Hod Hasharon, Israel (AP) - A famous developer's
hopes went up in smoke tonight as his son accidentally sent the
family's beloved 3DO FZ-1 console to an untimely death.
The console was the centerpiece of an effort, headed by
Felix Lazarev, to code a software "emulator" as a replacement
for, and a monument to, the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer.
Efforts to revive the console were deemed hopeless by Felix,
who immediately rushed to his friend's side as it expired.
Of course, he moved his son, Mark, away from the unit to avoid
danger to him as well.
"I'm just devastated. It was just sitting there, popping and sparking,
emitting a horrible, electrical stench. I wish I could blame this on the
terrorist networks, but unfortunately it was my own child who caused this
tragedy to occur. And he destroyed it with the simplest, and yet most
dangerous, object: a glass of cool, fresh water!" Lazarev broke off the
interview at this point, sobbing. Further requests for interviews were
declined, and the family requested that no photos be taken of the body, er,
smoldering pile of chips and plastic that remained.
Funeral plans have not been announced. Donations may be made to the FreeDO Preservation
Foundation in lieu of flowers.
