Mac of Mininess is go! [Jul. 8th, 2007|06:21 pm]
Mark Rimmell
The Mac mini is finally plugged into my router.... and I am having a play. Had to tinker with the display setting for my monitor, but other wise all seems OK. I'm up on-line and posting this via a Mac... OK Mac people I know you're not going to be impressed but it's my first Mac so indulge me this once.

Just confused myself by trying to "control v" to paste. I guess that's not a Mac thing huh?

Hope we can get this running as the web & mail server before I shoot off to Texas on Tuesday.

I'm so proud of you and very impressed!
um you can do Apple V instead (just replace the apple key for the CTRL key for all the same keystrokes).
you can do it !!

Ah ha!

OK got it. Now what's the mac equivalent of "ctrl,alt,delete"? ;-)

It's nice having all this space on the desk.

apple alt escape ;o)
if you want to force quit something
and ok apple +backspace is slower than the delete key but handy to know - as is apple +q to quit something x

I've got www.rimmell.com load balanced between my mac mini and yours. However, it's not very intelligent - it just sends every other request to one mac or the other. There's no way of telling if one machine is down and sending all of the requests to the other one. I need to see if there's a better way to do this.

I guess you've tried just unplugging yours?

Right now I feel like a Mac-o-phobe. I have a feeling this is going to be an unregarded web server in the corner and that's it.

If only Apple called it an 'apple key'. I got so mad trying to work out what the 'command key' was! I love my Mac, but really - that's just annoying!
