The best RSS reader I've used so far is newsfire on the mac.
Just last night we tried xtorrent, a bittorrent program written by the same guy. It is definitely up to the standard of newsfire, great interface and the search works too!
Xtorrent 1.1 was just released so it might be a good time to buy.
I finally setup LDAP on Kerio. I now have my contacts synced with webmail, mac address book and my phone. Awesome.
Anyone who uses our email server can now make use of this too.
The server (mail.lttd.net) allows secure LDAP connections on port 16360 (636 is the standard port but the mail server is also a domain controller, so that port is in use).
More details can be found in the Kerio User Manual:
IPsecuritas is a great free VPN Client for the Mac and is what we use to connect them to our Netscreen VPN.
Unfortunately their website not longer works (is gone?) and it has become hard to get the the software.
I've decided to mirror Version 3b6. This version seems to the latest out. It is a Universal Binary and although in beta, is very stable on my macbook.
My macbook has been running great. Although every now and then it seems to get pretty hot. I check activity monitor to find that both of the cores are running at about 50% load each. Yet no process seems to be taking up anywhere near that much (even combined). I've tracked it down to "Windows Sharing". For some reason, maybe samba has gone crazy or something, but switching off Windows Sharing seems to bring it right back down to a normal temperature. Once you've turned off Windows Sharing you can turn it back on and have no issues. It mainly seems to happen after coming out of sleep. I'll have to try and track down the main reason to the problem. Some software bug somewhere (this is on 10.4.6). I didn't have this problem on my g4 ibook. Although this is really the only problem with my macbook, and it is very minor.
