[MD1] Load Balanced/Fault Tolerant WebSTAR
Dear Webmaster, StarNine Technologies and Men & Mice are proud to announce the Public Beta release of an Intelligent Fault Tolerance and Load Balancing solution designed to maximize the reliability and performance of WebSTAR web sites. How It Works: The idea behind Intelligent Fault Tolerance and Load Balancing is simple. A Plug-In installed into each of your WebSTAR servers periodically sends a communications message to a QuickDNS Pro 2.0 server. From this message the QuickDNS Pro server can determine if the WebSTAR server is still active, the current load level and the requested load level for the WebSTAR server. If the server happens to go offline, QuickDNS Pro 2.0 will temporarily remove that server from it's active DNS records, meaning that no requests will be directed to that web server. When the web server comes back online, QuickDNS Pro automatically adds the server back to it's DNS records. Becoming A Beta Tester: WebSTAR and QuickDNS Pro users interested in beta...

[MD1] Vibrations in CodeWarrior Tools CD
From: MWRon@metrowerks.com (MW Ron) Subject: [UPDATE] Vibrations in CW Tools CD CodeWarriors, I know that many of you have had problems of vibrations in our Tools CD. Here is another report on the current knowledge. This Vibration problem is only on the Macintosh Tools CD as far as we can tell. It also only affect 4x or higher speed CD Roms, the faster the CD ROM the more noticible the vibration. The manufacturer stil has not received a report back on what the problem is, but still believe it to be one stamper. All of the bad MacOS Tools CDs Metrowerks sent to them were pressed by the same stamper as well as all of the CDs that have been returned from customers. On the shiny side of the CD is the stamper number MACCD R1J 11. There have been reports of other stamper numbers R1J 13 as having the problem but none of the stock tested with that number were flawed. If you feel you have an abnormal CD vibration even if it is not the MACCD R1J 11 stamper number please contact sales...

[MD1] TextureFnoob
From: erkyrath@netcom.com (Andrew Plotkin) Subject: [Ann] TextureFnoob 0.5 (freeware) TextureFnoob is a graphics tool. Or a texture programming language. Or a mathematical graphing package. Or... no, I'll start over. TextureFnoob is a graphics tool which can do *anything*. Okay -- a good approximation of anything. It allows you to construct functions out of basic mathematical elements: numbers, addition, subtraction, colors, color-blending, color maps, rotations, translations, Perlin noise and turbulence functions, and dozens of other operations. And then it dynamically generates the result. Computer graphics are made of mathematics. TextureFnoob does not give you a preprogrammed set of special effects; it gives you a set of mathematical functions and lets you construct whatever image you want. There are functions to render marble and wood textures; you've probably seen those before. There are functions for ripples, bevels, bumps, spirals, wiggles, wobbles, color composites, and all...
