Ok, it has been far too long since I’ve had time to post on the site. I really hope to change that now. So many things have happened since I fell off the wagon (stopped having time to post). Mac OS X 10.5 has actually shipped and there have been a series of patches that have really refined it and eliminated bugs.
One of the other major topics that I have posted about in the past, and received a great deal of email asking for further information on the subject relates to keeping several computer synced. The need to keep a portable computer up to date with the latest data from the other computers in other locations has been key. We have some new software to examine there as well.
Then we have VPN solutions. Several posts centered around Hamachi as a great point-to-point VPN solution. Since its release for the Mac, Hamachi hasn’t really gone anywhere. This is very unfortunate. There is a command line version of the software and it works. But its not what the average Mac user is looking for. We want a GUI (graphical user interface). In an upcoming post we’ll take a look at what’s happened in the world of Hamachi and other VPN solutions.
In any case, I’ve been away for far too long. Now I should be settling back into the fold and should have more time to start posting about some of the more popular topics.
