PR: Mac OS X Server site AFP548 launches OS X Server
The dearth of useful, moderated information about MacOS X Server was frustrating to Joel Rennich and David O'Donnell. As a result, they have created and launched AFP548.com. The site is dedicated to disseminating information about all aspects of MacOS X Server, from beginning UNIX tips and tricks to articles on how to maximize the value of your Server machine.

Some articles and other content are online already. Submissions -- in the form of articles, reviews, and questions -- from everyone in the MacOS X Server community (both current and potential users/administrators) are welcome.

[Editor's note: This is the first site I'm aware of that's dedicated to OS X Server, so if you're running Server and looking for information, it's probably worth your time to give a quick visit to AFP548.]

mosx.net is dedicated to OS X Server too, and it started 2 years ago.

Further proof ...

... that I really don't know much of anything :-). Thanks for the pointer; mosx.net is now also in our links section. FYI for those of us stuck in one language, mosx.net is French only, just as macosxhints is English only. Wouldn't autmoated translation software that just plain works be an amazing thing to have available?! In the interim, Babelfish would probably do a somewhat reasonable job at translating some of the text. Of course, it can also provide humorous results. For fun sometime, translate a string of text from X into Y and back into X and see what you get back! -rob.

What a load of horseshit...

I'm really sick of people taking the ego trip to decide "We need another site/list better than what currently exists..." and I want to be a list/site admin....

Why not put the same amount of effort into *improving* what is currently out there?

Not happy with the quality of articles on a site? Write some better ones...

Not happy with the quality of information available on any of the *EXCELLENT* OS X Server mailing lists? Summarize a whole thread and send a clear and informative post for the archives. Duplicate such posts on the Apple OSXServer discussion boards, mosx.net, macosxhints, etc etc etc.

It just always seems like an ego trip... I wanna be Cmdr Taco or something...



sheesh. And the content sucks. Don't even think about starting a new site like this until you have either unique content to contribute, or can improve drastically on the volume other sites offer.
