When I first reviewed Mail Archiver in 2012, I found the application to be a robust and powerful mail archiving solution. Today, I saw that Mail Archiver X 3.1 has been released and decided to write an update on my initial review. The new version supports some IMAP accounts, MailTags, and Retina displays. It’s much faster too.
A study that consisted of a landscape audit, investigating YouGov’s database of Twitter users identified how people are using Twitter and the role of news brands within that.

When you shoot time lapse or slow motion, chances are that your resulting footage contains quite some flicker, or has a “restless” quality to it. With time lapses that is mainly due to the difference in brightness from frame to frame. Slow motion has its own problems that can cause flicker.

From his answers that I received by email I learned it isn’t necessary.
