As far as I know, there is no Flash plug-in for BeOS.  Making a flash site
would drop support for those in this group still using BeOS as their primary
OS.  Also, I see no need for a Flash enabled site at this point or in the
near future as it adds nothing of value to the information we will be
presenting.  Perhaps once OBOS R2 is available a Flash piece could be useful
but that is a long way away.
