DNS Enabler 1.1.5 and other things
Category : Technology/DNSEnabler115Released.txt
DNS Enabler 1.1.5 is out. I've also added a new item in the Help menu to allow the user to de-install DNS Enabler completely, stop the name server, and restore eveything that DNS Enabler touched to its pristine state.
I've put an expiry date to this version because I do intend to sell it as a commercially supported product - when I'm sure that it's totally bug-free and really useful. But it's going to be priced like Postfix Enabler. Hopefully it will be deemed low enough to escape the radar of the pirates but I doubt it.
But pricing Postfix Enabler super low at 9.99 didn't save me from being called "stupid and greedy" at MacUpdate.
Makes you wonder about the phrase "nothing more to lose".
But let me tell you about the book I've just read and enjoyed. It's "Juice - The Creative Fuel that Drives World Class Inventors" by Evan I. Schwartz. That's the third (okay somewhat) good book I've read from him (the others being Webonomics and Digital Darwinism). But there's this recurring theme in Juice that says that, with every new invention or product, you've got to work out who wins and who loses with the introduction of the product. Because the ones who think they're going to lose are going to counter-attack. So you see these comments at MacUpdate and Version Tracker? They may not be just from the users.
