Hello,

Dani, our System Administrator, has created a new forum called Mac Tips and Tricks. I'd love to write about a number of things concerning the Macintosh, but being at the administrator level for so many years, I may be a bit out of touch on what new people would like to read about.

I am thinking on writing about:

OS 9 --> X conversions
Partitioning and why it is smart
Networking peer to peer and to a server
Working with other Operating Systems
Classic and OS X
Security
General FAQ

Please post to this thread what you would like to see covered. Starting June 20, I will pick up my pen and begin writing. :) Of course, if other members would like to author a topic, by all means go for it!

Thanks a bundle,

Christian

I'd like to see some tricks and tweaks that could make my mac more unix-like and take full advantage of its bsd core. What can I use aside from fink? How can I compile my favorite *nix programs to work on my new mac? How can I install a desktop environment such as KDE or Gnome, or can I at all?

Hello.
Of your choices (I have many) and still a new user, I would be interested in why format, then how. Security and FAQ.
Good Luck with it.

I'd like to hear more about security. Also, I'd like to hear something about antivirus software, as I ran into an interesting problem with my Palm handheld recently while Beta testing Virex 7.5. With Virex 7.5 installed my Palm would not sync, so I had to uninstall it, which leaves me kinda vulnerable. I haven't had any other problems with my Mac that I didnt figure out.

Thanks.
