From the Editor
by Edward Marczak
Welcome to October MacTech! While this is my first "From the Editor," I want to keep it short and sweet. It's absolutely a pleasure to be working more closely with everyone at the magazine. Particularly the authors! There are some incredible people writing, and more that are submitting proposals for consideration.
Equally important are the faithful readers! Thank you for years of renewals, and thank you for writing in yourselves. If you have ideas, questions or comments, please do not hesitate to write in! This is how we tune the magazine to your needs. You can send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This month showcases articles that will impact your everyday routine. OS X Server presents a compelling system for any small business. It's easy to get a website up and running using the tools supplied. However, when the business grows, and the website expands, you may notice that the site isn't quite as snappy as it used to be. Frequent contributors Emmanuel Stein, Jin Lin, and Jamie Ferri show us how to tune your web server for performance.
You may have heard of the Mac OS X Enterprise Project (macenterprise.org)? Co-chair Philip Rinehart follows up his excellent Automator article with a piece on CUPS - the printing system in OS X. We've gotten many requests for more information on CUPS, and Philip's article is sure to satisfy!
It's your dream: you're charged with transitioning a department or company from Windows to an all-Mac environment. However, there are roadblocks. Paul Ammann is also back with a topic that most of us encounter at one point or another: transferring mail from Outlook to Entourage.
Of course, we have our other regular features to keep you up-to-date and in-the-know. One even covers both the Rails and AJAX phenomenon! Enjoy, and remember to write in!
