WebMon for Mavericks 7.0.2

Category : Technology/WebMon7dot0dot2.txt

I finally found the time to update WebMon for Mavericks. The scrolling performance of WebMon’s (Apache Web Server) Log Window in Mavericks was rather weird, and sometimes it doesn’t refresh itself until you try to scroll the table view.

Version 7.0.2 fixes it and scrolling is much smoother now.

If you can look at the log records for my “live" web server, above, you will see that the most downloaded pieces of software from my site are for Liya (a data management tool for SQL databases) and for the MariaDB installer. Both are free software, of course, but I’m surprised by the popularity of MariaDB on Mac OS X, which is a “drop-in” replacement for MySQL — for those of us who are kinda concerned about the future of MySQL under Oracle. 

I have a MySQL installer, too, but the downloads for MariaDB far exceed that of MySQL, from my site. Ok, it could be that there are other sites that provide one-click installer downloads for MySQL. But I think my installer provides a Preference Pane that works much better than even the one you could get from the official MySQL site. And then it plays nice with MariaDB, if you have both database systems running on the same Mac. So, what I can tell is, there are a lot of people running MariaDB on Mac OS X.

And, one more thing, I’m surprised, but then again not, that Sendmail Enabler (remember this?) is still being downloaded. There is one way in which software, as a merchandise, is quite unlike fish or meat or newspapers or most other produce – it doesn’t get stale. Because of this thing called “The Long Tail”, there is always someone, somewhere in the whole wide Internet who needs something that you think would have run its course by now, if you didn’t know better. I still get money from Postfix Enabler — in each of the last three months. So I never take things off my “shelf”. I’m happy to keep them on my virtual shop window, as long as I’m physically alive and kicking in the real world, or even hereonafter :)
