BLOB streaming has changed its name and home

Hi all,

So you may have been thinking that maybe calling something "MyBS" was not such a great marketing idea. Even as a developer I have to admit that it isn't the best name abbreviation to have. So we decided to change it. We considered calling it the "BLOB Streaming Engine" but that resulted in the abbreviation "BSE" which also isn't so great. What we have finally settled on is the "PrimeBase Media Stream" engine or "PBMS" which I think is fairly safe.

We have also relocated the source for PBMS from sourceforge  onto LaunchPad where you can find it at: https://code.launchpad.net/pbms

Anyway, it is Primebase, not Prime Base...

Yes but ounce your mind starts going down that road no 4 letter abbreviation is safe. :-)
