HI everyone :)
I'm trying to catch up with my translations (after not being able to
contribute for some months), but I can't seem to find any
translations needing updating in Mailman.
Even the POT file in the Mailman 3.0 branch has a last-modified date
of 2006-04-28. The vi.po files in each branch are complete, and
haven't been changed since I last submitted them.
Surely there are new strings or changed strings needing updating. But
how do I find them?
Thankyou for any help you can offer with this. :)

Now mailman is in bzr, and it's alos on launchpad, can translations be
made against the launchpad interface ? For instance, in the mailman that
is shipped with feisty, I see 228 untranslated strings... I am not sure
if that aligns with the versions that we translated.
Anyone can shed some light on this !?
Reverse Modeling, a premier 3D scanning solutions and service provider, has
signed an agreement with 3D3 Solutions, developer of FlexScan3D, to resell
their innovative reverse modeling solution to designers, artists,
manufacturers and engineering professionals. Under the agreement, Reverse
Modeling will offer the FlexScan3D software package nationwide.
FlexScan3D Scanner is a software-based 3D scanner that lets users plug in
virtually any digital SLR camera and off-the-shelf projector to create a 3D
representation of an object for use in downstream applications or rapid
prototyping. Offered at a fraction of the cost of most commercially
available scanner solutions, FlexScan3D represents a shift in the 3D
scanning market toward a more mainstream use of 3d scanners. The ability to
plug in a variety of SLR cameras and projectors means that users have
control over the quality and accuracy of the data, and can have multi-camera
configurations at a much lower cost.
"What makes FlexScan3D unique", says customer, John Thompson, "is that its
flexible and affordable enough that the average modeler or designer can now
capture 3D content without having to invest a lot of money on expensive or
bulky hardware. I plug in my existing SLR and projector and I can capture
everything I need, fast. I'm getting quality data that's better than more
The addition of the FlexScan3D software gives Reverse Modeling clients a
powerful and cost effective solution for reverse engineering and visualizing
physical objects in 3D space.
Summer time means barbeques, baseball, camping, and yes, Home Improvement
Projects! As the weather gets nice and the days get longer so do lists of
home improvement projects. Here are a few projects which are best done in
the summer maximizing the long days and the good weather!
*Gardening/Landscaping:* Depending on which part of the country you live in
it may be too late to plant a garden from seed, but you most likely still
have time to get your garden going using starters. Plant now, be sure to
properly weed and water and you will enjoy your vegetables all fall.
Many landscaping projects can be done throughout the year but it can be
easier and more enjoyable during the summer. Build a rockwall, plant some
perennials, or put down a fresh layer of mulch. Working in the summer
ensures the soil will be easy to work with and completing these projects now
allows you to enjoy them for the remainder of the summer and fall.
*Exterior Painting:* In many parts of the country 80% of exterior painting
gets done between the end of June and middle of September. The reason is the
weather is more predictable and warmer; you don't have to worry as much
about getting rained on in the middle of applying the second coat of paint.
The summer months are also a popular time for staining decks. Not only do
most people spend a lot of time on their decks during the summer and thus
want them to look nice, but the long days are ideal for completing a
re-staining job in a weekend.
*Roof replacement:* Summer is the perfect time to replace your roof because
there is no chance of getting snow and the weather is more predictable so
you can plan the best time to tear the roof off. There is nothing worse than
tearing off your roof right before a large rain fall! Also, in the summer
you don't have to worry about losing the heat from your home as you would
during the cold winter months.
*Screening in your Porch:* To fully enjoy the outside without the bugs,
screening in your porch is the only way to go. This project can actually be
competed almost anytime during the year but will be enjoyed during the
*Get Air Conditioning unit tuned up:* If you haven't already done so you
should get your AC tuned up. Many units use close to 50% more energy when
they are not running properly. With the rising cost of energy you can't
afford to keep your Air Conditioner running below its peak.
The preceding is a list of projects which are best completed during the
summer months. There are many other projects that are also completed during
the summer but the ones above should be moved to the top of your list to
maximize the weather during the summer.
Good luck and don't forget to make time to go swimming too!

Sierra Club NYC Group releases a report detailing why and how the City needs
to prevent rapid price spikes by planning and acting today. The group says
Mayor Bloomberg's PlaNYC 2030 moves the City in the right direction in
planning for long term sustainability, but encourages City leaders to
include rapid energy conservation plans to respond to potential energy price
Its report, "Moving NYC Toward Sustainable Energy Independence," authored by
Dan Miner, the Group's energy committee chair, requests Council to
reconsider Intro. 374, previously submitted in 2004. Both San Francisco and
Portland, Oregon have passed similar bills.
Short and long-term recommendations on transportation, buildings, electric
generation and renewable power, addressing both global warming and energy
security are offered in the report. Some recommendations were included in
PlaNYC and in Governor Spitzer's plan to reduce state electricity use 15% by
2015, others will enhance these proposals, while stepping up the City's
climate change response.
Organizations that have signed on to the report so far include: American
Littoral Society NE Chapter, Asthma Free School Zone, Carbon Tax Center,
Galapagos Art Center, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Energy & Environment
Program at Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, New York Public
Interest Research Group, Nos Quedamos, NY Divinity School, the Pace Energy
Project, Sane Aviation for Everyone, Solar One, Sustainable South Bronx, The
Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, and The Gaia Institute.
New York City Must Prepare Now for Energy Security
Dan Miner, Sierra Club NYC Group energy committee chair
Many of us are worried about the long-term consequences of climate change,
and there's growing support for the warnings of climate scientists that we
need to cut carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 to avoid climate catastrophe. On
the other hand, most Americans are not cutting their energy use
significantly. Defenders of business as usual claim that energy frugality
will harm our economy, while failing to consider that inaction now
guarantees wrecking the economy later with heat waves and flooding. Part of
the problem is the perception that the climate impacts of our oil addiction
lie far in the future, preventing a public consensus of urgency. Without
that, the bold political action we need today is impossible.
Our dependence on imported fossil fuels poses serious short-term risks as
well. Conservative pundits and military analysts tell us that even slight
disruptions to our oil imports will cause prices to spike to $100 a barrel
or more. The economic consequences will impact most Americans personally and
directly. Unlike climate change impacts, we could be faced with the national
security threat of price shocks at any time.
For example, an attack on Iran is likely to result in a blockade of the
Straits of Hormuz, through which over a third of the world's oil is shipped.
Hopefully that won't happen, but we're still at risk from disruptions caused
by Gulf Coast hurricanes or terrorist attacks on oil shipping and refining
infrastructure. Even without a crisis, a recent GAO report documents that
depleting world oil supplies, when combined with rising demand, will make
energy markets increasingly volatile - and supply disruptions inevitable.
Rising awareness of climate change is accelerating the transition away from
fossil fuels, and we need to step it up further. Short-term municipal plans
to conserve energy quickly during fuel price shocks are a critical starting
point. Putting them into place will make cities more resilient, and public
education about them will motivate rapid implementation of efficiency,
conservation and renewable energy projects.
Both the Administration and the Council have been doing a fine job on
environmental issues, and with PlaNYC 2030, New York City is on the path
toward long-term sustainability. However, our vulnerability to energy shocks
requires attention now. How would $100 a barrel oil affect trucks bringing
groceries to supermarkets, winter heating bills, commuters, and the
restaurants and theaters dependent on tourists? These are prudent questions
to consider well before problems arise.
The newly released Sierra Club report, "Moving New York City toward
Sustainable Energy Independence" asks the PlaNYC initiative to address this
issue, and urges the City Council to resurrect the bill, drafted in 2004 by
its own Environmental Committee, which would create a City energy shortage
contingency plan. San Francisco and Portland, Oregon have already passed
similar bills, and are already developing their plans. The report recommends
creating such a plan in the short term, and over the long term, rapid
deployment of decentralized, renewable power, and other measures that will
enhance PlaNYC 2030 implementation. By cutting energy costs, creating jobs,
and slowing global warming while buffering the impact of energy shocks, the
approach is a win-win solution. New York's example could lead the U.S.
toward energy independence. We don't have to wait for future disasters,
let's start moving beyond oil today.
An energy sports drink can be very helpful especially for the athletes and
enthusiasts who want to try out sports. Most athletes have relied upon
energy sports drink to give them extra stamina so that they can practice all
People who treat sports as their profession surely force themselves to take
energy sports drink so that they can increase their performance and work.
Some of these sports player are basketball players who are exposed to lots
of warm ups and trainings.
They even spend a whole day and continued practice just to put their body in
good condition and master their shooting skills. The runners are also some
of the athletes who take energy sports drink. They need speed and endurance
and they should not tire off easily because they will lose it.
Running is not a joke because you give off all your strength and rest for a
little while and hit the tracks again. However helpful, it has been said
that energy sports drink do not give a good effect to the human body. Some
people know it but they know that they don?t have a choice but to drink it
to give them the power and strength they need.
If you are quite concerned enough, you can try to look at the ingredients
and contents of the energy drink. If you are still young, you should not
drink energy sports drink because it might not bring a good effect to your
body and to your health as well. Most of these athletes can also experience
side effects in their body.
Some may not feel it at once but as time goes on and with continued use,
probably they will feel it when they grow older. It may even shorten a
person?s life or cause sudden death if taken more than the usual. But that
is only a probability because there are no proofs that it had brought
dangers to a person.
If you are into sports, it is true that you need the energy sports drink.
But as long as you can handle the pressure, you can try to bring out the
very best in you. If not, choose an energy sports drink which has low
caffeine because it is known to men that said ingredient may bring side
effects to your body.
Also, as much as possible, do not drink it excessively. Drink it only when
you need it to save your body from too much caffeine contamination. If you
drink energy sports drink at the desired dosage, it may be helpful to a
person?s build up. The only hazard is when a person drinks too much.
Energy sports drink have been known and proven to increase activity of the
body, brain activity, performance and endurance. This will make a person
finish a long day?s activity without wearing easily. If you have kids, make
sure that they don?t drink energy sports drink like you do because it will
damage their health the most.
These drinks will surely increase your energy but make sure that you know
how to handle your body properly to keep you healthy and in shape. Want to
start the day and end the day right? Get an energy sports drink and warm
your body up.
