  1. I second the suggestion for moving to a better host. Seriously, even GoDaddy (please don't) would be even better than Yahoo. Host Gator and site5 are both great options for shared hosting. Doubt yahoo supports this, but just in case and assuming you're running a server with a apache, this'll do the trick. RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.(.*)$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L] RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.(.*)$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
  2. Nope. Pick one. They disallowed animated gifs for a reason (good riddance).
  3. There's a lot more to a good website than what you can accomplish in a WYSIWYG. The biggest problem with a WYSIWYG is the quality of the markup it produces. It's terrible. As a result your site suffers because search engines will have trouble indexing your content; your page load time will be slower (once again effecting SEO); and the WYSIWYG isn't going to be able to properly generate the required html, css and javascript to help your site to display & function properly cross-browser. The lack of control is also a huge factor. Once you get into building dynamic sites the WYSIWYG will be in the way and ultimately slow you down if not get in the way entirely.
  4. Yes, it's worth it. If you enjoy it and you take the time to learn it. If you intend on doing this professionally, there's a lot more to it than you may suspect. If you're serious you'll need to learn at least one back end language like PHP (easier for beginners because it's quite forgiving) or Ruby... the more the better; SQL; front end markup like html(4 & 5), javascript and CSS;. It's also best that you get comfortable with applications like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. It's not required but a good understanding of a LAMP server will help tremendously. If working with more than one developer look into GIT, Mercurial, Subversion or something similar for version control. Don't expect to get anywhere building sites with a WYSIWYG aplication like Dreamweaver or Frontpage. TextMate, Coda, MacVim and good ol' VIM are my recommended editors (The first 3 are mac based). If you don't already, you'll learn to despise Internet Explorer...particularly IE 6 & 7. If not, then you're doing it wrong. lynda.com has some good courses to get you started.
  5. Just about any network attached storage will work fine for Time Machine. It doesn't have to be an Apple branded router or a time capsule.
  6. Lots of possibilities. - Check on both the macbook and router: Do you have a static IP set, or is it using DHCP? - Does it work if you turn off the airport and connect via ethernet? - Are you able to get online over wifi from a different machine? You can create a temporary test account on the machine to see if it's something in the config of your current user account. Some older macbooks had trouble connecting to certain types of routers (D-Link comes to mind specifically) but I haven't had any trouble with the later generation models.
  7. There are a few different ways to accomplish this. 1) The method Bruce mentioned. Control + click/tap works and is the classic mac way of doing a right-click 2) Two-finger click/tap: Go into System Preferences -> Under Hardware, click on "Trackpad". Tick the "Secondary Tap" option under the "Two Fingers Section" 3) Right click, using the bottom-right (or left) of your trackpad: Go into System Preferences, Hardware, then Trackpad like above. Under the "One Finger" section, tick the "Secondary click" option. While you're in there, I'd suggest browsing through the other very useful trackpad gestures. Apple has a lot of useful information on their website for "switchers": Switchers `101: http://www.apple.com/support/switch101/switcher/ Switchers 101 -> "On Windows I used to...": http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2514 (the first post describes exactly what you're asking) Your local Apple store also has 'classes' and personal sessions you can schedule with a mac "genius" to walk you through many things
  8. I'm a bit late to this discusion, but if you haven't already bought a mac then head over to an Apple store or a Best Buy and give 'em a shot. There are a lot of similarities between Mac OS and Windows, most everything is done just a little bit different and it's not for everyone but if an intuitive easy to use Operating System is what you're after. Mac OS is it. iTunes, as Bruce mentioned, works great on the Mac. It comes pre-installed. Microsoft just released a new version of Office:mac that's quite a bit faster than the last version. Check out Apple iWork... Much cheaper, but still has all the features. Google Docs is also excellent... and free. Ignore fallout. Clearly, he's mistaken.
  9. Parallels is another option. I've tried parallels and vmware fusion. I like parallels but they're both very good.
  10. haha, same here... work internet (wireless) stretched across 3 routers and about 20 people sharing. I think there are two T-1s.
  11. comcast basic cable. too lazy to get the clearwire/4g adapter but it's usually around 16mb down/0.5mb up at&t 3g
  12. Aaand, it's over. Apple wins. http://www.macrumors.com/2009/12/15/apple-...gainst-psystar/

    I really doubt it will work how that article made it out to. We'll see I guess. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=807095
  14. Ha! To each their own I guess. Three days with a new operating system you're not used to and because it doesn't work like the operating system you do "know" it's crap. Load up your anti-virus, anti-spyware/adware. Keep your defragger of choice handy -- you'll need 'em.
