Its the stuff that our nightmares are made of. One way or another, we've all been there and wished we weren't. Sometimes its the simple frustration of the conversation when your windows counterpart admits to the superiority of the Macintosh, but points out that 'they' (meaning Apple) missed the boat.
Talk about stealing your thunder.
Today marks two milestones for MacWrite.com. Three years ago today MacWrite.com was born while I went out to lunch with my best friend. Now, today on the third birthday of MacWrite.com I am pleased to announce MacWrite.com is teaming up with JMUG-Connect to make MacWrite.com a true Mac site.
Always there for Mac, the venerable Norton AntiVirus came out in beta for Apple's newest operating system soon after Apple's Mac OS X operating system hit the streets.

We should have heeded that ancient warning and been more careful of what we wished for. Steve Jobs is many things to many people. One of those things he should have gotten credit for was being right. So many people, faithful or otherwise, sneered at his comparisons of the mighty Macintosh to other more luxurious and decidedly less commoditized (dull) items. His unwavering belief was and is that people will pay a premium price for a premium product.
After upgrading from 10.2.3 to 10.2.4, the Apache configuration file httpd.conf is reset. This means that any changes you made to the file, including activating PHP are lost. So lets restore the httpd.conf file so PHP works again.
If you don't have it already download BBEdit lite 6.1.2 a free download, sicne it has Open Hidden File, and also allows you to save read only files by entering your administration login/password.
Last week we installed and set up Apple X11, a bona fide Apple rendition of the XFree86 X Window system for Mac OS X. This week we will do the same for XDarwin, the open source version, which has sufficient maturity and stability to be usable in a production environment.
