Flu bug - with love from Shanghai

Category : Commentary/flubug.txt

I've been been down with flu ever since I got back from Shanghai. In a place where people spit on the floor within two feet of you in a restaurant, I guess that's to be factored into as a travel risk.

But I shouldn't be complaining. I had a really great time there. You go to each place to learn - about all its idiosyncrasies, about why it is what it is, and all that adds to your world view. Otherwise don't go anywhere.

I really hate it when foreigners gripe about Singapore, especially the very ones that Singapore welcome as "foreign talent". Instead of criticising, try understanding. Don't do unto others, etc...

This is the world's most populous nation on the move. Gucci, Calvin Klein, Prada. Surely this is not the face of communism. How did it get to here? There's a fantastic energy about the place. I came back and found this book in the library - "Big Dragon - The future of China: What it means for business, the economy, and the global order" by Daniel Burstein and Arne de Keijzer. Been quite interesting reading...

Postfix Enabler for Tiger?

Category : Technology/PFE-Tiger.txt

I've had so many questions about this that I stopped being able to give an answer to each one. So, there will be a Tiger-compatible version of Postfix Enabler. Come back again to these pages when Tiger ships.

I think the NDA still applies but I've had to re-do quite a bit of my shell scripts in Tiger because of a change in AppleScript. I then decided that I'd try to keep as much of my old scripts as I can, and so I rewrote the interface in Objective-C to emulate the behaviour I had in Panther.

Plus, I wanted to be able to have a shot at creating an interface that can do the configuring remotely. Not quite there yet, but a Postfix Enabler that will work with Tiger will be ready on the 29th.

Not sure if I want to give this away free this time. I believe it's proved its worth. So get your 9.95 ready.
