Lpatops are not for heavy lifting, they are Toys for the Boys.
I run the .NA country code Top Level Domain Name Registry
which is Java based. It supports an API called EPP and I have
of course a clone on my MacBook (and on the Sexy Little Number
:-)-O). I tested the EPP by writing a loop registering as many
names as possible and noticed the fan turn on almost immediately.
It became so hot that I worried and killed the Perl script.
I am quite sure that this is expected behavior. What happens with
the same script on a Desk Top?
