LetterRip 2.1.1 Released -- Fog City Software has released LetterRip 2.1.1, the latest version of their easy-to-use mailing list server software. Version 2.1.1 adds a number of small but welcome improvements, including increased performance accessing subscriber lists (necessitating a new internal subscriber list format - you cannot revert to previous versions without exporting and re-importing your subscriber lists) and reduced memory usage for searches using Apple events. In addition, the LetterRip Administrator Connect dialog defaults to the Password field if the Domain field already contains default text, and the Email Admin processor adds a find command for finding subscribers based on any string in the email address. LetterRip costs $295; upgrades for previous owners are free. Fog City recommends that all users upgrade, particularly those using LetterRip's processors. [ACE]
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.
