Sky Burial by Xinran has edged out The Cliff Walk as the best book I've read this year. This book is special. I don't know how I came to know of it but I kept looking for it in the Library. When I found it, I read through it in almost one sitting. From a deceptively mushy, perhaps overly sentimental beginning, I rapidly got transfixed by it. It's simply un-put-downable.
It's a wonderful, moving tale of pain, loss, hope, idealism and heroism. I've been urging everyone I know to read it.
MailServe 2.0 Beta 1
Category : Technology/MailServe2B1.txt
I've still got a couple of things to add to it but here's a first beta of MailServe 2.0, the next version of Postfix Enabler. This fully functional demo will expire on 30th November 2005. I'll continue to work on it till then.
You can download it from here.
Implemented support for IPv6 addressing over SSL
Added an interface to Fetchmail
Added ability to set the Mailbox Size
Added a field for RBL Sites
Alternate SMTP ports numbers
Can set up a list of Smart Hosts
Mail queue management
Support for Virtual Alias Domains
Can direct the catch-all mailbox to /dev/null
Can require SSL for SMTP and SMTPd
Plus, I've re-arranged the tabs
It needs a bit more work. But I thought I'd release it and see how it goes. You can use your current Postfix Enabler serial number to try it out. It'll probably be priced at $19.99, with current Postfix Enabler users being able to upgrade for $9.99.
