Pester 1.1b8 released

Get it. Pester 1.1 has been a long time coming. It’s been my own personal battle with the second-system effect. 1.1b8 is a big step towards finishing, though. -rw-r–r– 1 nriley users 295049 Oct 14 2002 Pester-1.0.dmg -rw-r–r– 1 nriley users 428727 Jan 7 2003 Pester-1.1b2.dmg -rw-r–r– 1 nriley users 524911 Apr 9 2003 Pester-1.1b4.dmg -rw-r–r– 1 nriley users 749389 Nov 25 2007 Pester-1.1b5.dmg -rw-r–r– 1 nriley users 746933 Nov 27 2007…
