My Website

I put together a tutorial on mapping network shares, also has a bit on automator. It should be updated every few days or so with a new tutorial for us switchers & new users on how to do things on a Mac that we used to take for granted on a PC.

How is the load time for my website? Is it slow, fast, average? My Comcast 6Mbps cable is too fast for me to gauge load time :blind:

Thanks, hopefully it won't be a painful wait for those stuck on dial-up.

Came up pretty fast for me (1MBPS cable modem), but there are pictures of some funny looking dude all over the place. Did you get hacked already?



(tried to give you rep, the system wouldn't let me ... it must not like those pics either :p )

There are some pics of a weird-looking guy that turned up in my Photo Library... my wife said he was a good-looking guy and he should model on my website :alien: - so I put him (me) on there.

Yes, that is an OS X Graphite skin on my PC... not a particular fan of the native XP interface, so it all looks like a Mac. Kind of ironic (and a bit off topic) IE 7 doesn't show up right when skinned, although FireFox 2.0 skins very pleasantly... :spook:

i'll let you know how it loads on t-1 tomorrow... :-p

actually with smallish sites like that, t-1 (at least on our network at work) is normally no faster than cable. though for big downloads it cranks!

After a bit of investigating I discovered a beautiful thing... iWeb resizes images to fit in it's little pre-formed boxes. It crops the image and sets the quality for web, leaving you with an ideal picture, and not using a ton of space. No wonder it loads quickly, the images are ~50kb instead of the 4mb originals...

Your article "Automated Share Mapping" is missing an image regarding the Windows sharing feature just below the text; Choose "enable file sharing.".
