For those of you with newer PC motherboards, you can now play an
interesting game called "How hot is that application?".  Simply run
xmbmon (pkgsrc/sysutils/xmbmon), and observe the temperature as the
package is compiled.  I know that Perl gets 2 degrees on my old 1GHz
PIII. I apportion that as 1 degree dynamic, 1 degree static.

The Package of The Month award is a joint one this month:

(a) to mozilla and mplayer, nominated by myself, for letting me listen
to internet radio stations of my choice from NetBSD.  My family thank
the people who made this all possible.  I am beginning to suspect that
my family do not appreciate the same type of music as me.  Where did I
go wrong?

(b) x2x, (pkgsrc/x11/x2x), nominated by Aaron J. Grier, who writes:
"being able to warp input devices (mouse and keyboard) between
two different machines on two different architectures (sparc and
alpha) both running non-xfree86 X servers is just too cool.  my
fiance makes fun of me for keeping old monitors around, but now I
can put them to use.  who needs virtual desktops when you can have
multiple real ones?  :)"

and, finally,

(c) dovecot (pkgsrc/mail/dovecot), nominated by Erik Berls, who says:
"it's an IMAP server that fully supports virtual mailboxes that
don't require real accounts on the machine.  It supports both
mailbox and Maildir formats of storage, and integrates well
with postfix..  ie: it just solved a very real problem for me.."
