Some Sad News................
Sitcom star Mollie Sugden has died in hospital after a long illness, aged 86.
The Yorkshire-born star of popular programme Are You Being Served? died in the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford on Wednesday afternoon. Her twin sons, Robin and Simon Moore, were at her bedside
Best known for her comedy roles often playing battleaxes, Sugden also appeared as the fearsome Mrs Hutchinson in The Liver Birds. And memorable in Thats My Boy
Frank Thornton, who played Captain Peacock in Are You Being Served? told the BBC: "Mollie, of course, was an excellent comedian. She was a jolly good actress."
The BBC's head of comedy Mark Freeland said: "She will be remembered as a truly funny and instantly recognisable actress - a star of 1970s British comedy."

Boxee for Windows
We are finally releasing a public alpha of boxee for Windows. We are looking forward to getting feedback from PC users, so we will be ready for beta later this year.
Boxee is now available for Windows, Mac and Ubuntu users, and our goal is to keep the 3 platforms in sync as we release updates and upgrades.
What is Boxee???
Boxee is a free, open-source software platform that integrates personal media with Internet media along with social networking. boxee’s social networking component allows users to share information about what they’re listening to or watching with other Boxee users or friends on social networks like twitter, facebook, etc.
Boxee is designed for your TV and use of a remote control. To get Boxee on your TV you’ll need to first connect your computer to the TV screen. You will most likely need an DVI/VGA to HDMI cable (but it depends on the specific input/output on your computer and TV).
Boxee is based on the Award winning open-source project XBMC, and also incorporates the XUL framework (which is the basis for the Mozilla browser).
