Mailman Stops Working in Plesk 9

I just noticed that Mailman stopped working about 6 weeks ago. I have a (dv) server at MediaTemple and it runs Plesk 9.x. This has been an issue for a while now, where it randomly stops working. If you have the same issues with Mailman under Plesk, here’s a fix for you. Run the following command:

$ /usr/lib/plesk-9.0/mailman_conf_init  /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/  qmail

This will force a reconfiguration of Mailman for qmail. After that, restart qmail and Mailman

$ service restart qmail
$ service restart mailman

Victoria’s Secret Sleazy Credit Card Language

Recently my girlfriend got a notice regarding a change in terms to her Victoria’s Secret credit card agreement. Victoria’s Secret store cards are held by World Financial Network National Bank. In reading these terms, I found some oddly worded sentences, that made it seem almost as if they were trying to slide changes past their women card holders. It mainly pertained to finance charges. (Emphasis mine).


D. The Daily Periodic Rate of FINANCE CHARGE applicable to your Account will be computed by adding 21.74% to the value of an “Index,” and dividing by 365 (The corresponding ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE will be the Index plus 21.74%). The Index in effect for each Billing Period shall be the highest “Prime Rate” of interest as published in the “Money Rates” section of The Wall Street Journal for the calendar month preceding the month in which the Billing Period begins, rounded upward, if necessary, to the nearest .001% (“Index”). The corresponding ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE will not decrease below 24.99% nor increase above 24.99%. An increase or decrease in the Annual Percentage Rate will result in a corresponding increase or decrease in the amount of Finance Charge.

Effective July 1, 2010. The 24.99% maximum Annual Percentage Rate will be removed from your account. This means that the Annual Percentage Rate on your account can increase above the 24.99%, upon an increase in the Prime Rate.

In plain English, the APR on your Victoria’s Secret card will be 24.99%. That is, until the rate cap is removed on July 1, 2010 and it can be further increased. Better pay off that card each month unless you like paying 24.99% interest on all those fancy bras and underwear.

Oh, and you better opt out of receiving monthly paper statements or they’ll charge you $1 for each of those you want to receive.
