August 2006 Archives

What started out as a simple task has snowballed into a major endeavor. The job was simple, buy an external enclosure that I could put a spare Serial ATA drive into, and plug it into my Mac via Firewire or USB. Unfortunately, Serial ATA has a hidden gotcha called Spread Spectrum Clocking that a lot of SATA gear just doesn't support.

This afternoon, I finally broke down and installed a webmail application here to read mail when away from our usual machines, after scouring the web for info, I finally settled on SquirrelMail, a well rounded package for doing email via the web.

Installation was a snap, the online info on installing under Mac OS X 10.1 still worked fine even though the mail server here is 10.4, and aren't really any different than a standard install, so I'm kind of missing the point of having separate install instructions... I'll put this through its paces over the next few weeks and will report back if any signifigant issues are uncovered.
