If anyone on here is old enough - they might recognize me as the
original author of BB.  And, yes Quest End-of-Lifed it earlier
this month and I'm taking care of all the support until the EoL.

That having been said, I recommend moving to Xymon, and would
be happy to help any BBPE users in any way I can.
