Are the BNN articles now being posted in the news system on the UO website?

I've been content scraping the BNN articles to archive on my website
http://oev.hilands.com/news-bnn.html
I really enjoy fumbling through the old articles to discover pieces of lore I have missed in the past.

I have been scraping from
http://town.uo.com/bnn/
based on the article ID's
http://town.uo.com/b...rticle_xxx.html
where xxx is the article. The latest BNN does not seem to be listed in the BNN's system.
After opening the file I do a search for regular expressions and blast it into my database.

Does anyone else do things like this? =)
Guess I better get back to my dungeon and scrape the news articles.

I noticed something similar with the Five on Fridays. I think they get cataloged and archived to a permanent URL by a script either after a few days or after additional posts are made.
