How Loud Are Your Mac's Fans?

When they get hot, Macs turn on various internal fans to keep components cool. The noise can be annoying, but just how loud is it? If you have an iOS device with a built-in microphone, you can download one of many free sound meter apps (search on decibel in the App Store) and see if you're subjecting your ears to a truly unreasonable noise level.

 
 

Word 5.0 Addendum

Word 5.0 Addendum -- Dwight K. Lemke writes, "An addendum to your report on Word 5.0: I was informed by Niles & Associates that the latest version of EndNote Plus includes a Word 5.0 command application so that it can be accessed from the Insert menu. Expect to see it in mid-February."

[Adam: I'm glad to see people using the plug-in capabilities of Word 5.0, but I would have been more impressed if they could be easily turned on and off without quitting the program and moving the files around.]
