Yeah. I mentioned SpyMac a while back and got a quick email from Larry about it.<br><br>Spymac is about 10 levels higher than MM, MC and any other Mac web site at the moment - as far as what they offer, anyway.<br><br>The forum software (which they wrote themselves, if I recall) is far and away the very best available. It has every feature you could need in a forum. The "Gallery" is soooooo cool. Then they go and add free web sites, free blog sites, free email, free auctions.... did I miss anything?<br><br>Heck, they even offer domain hosting. Here's a sample of their middle of the road package:<br><br>12 months: $17 per month ($204 every 12 months)<br>This Package Includes<br><br>• 2 free .com, .net or .org domains<br>• Free domain transfers<br>• 1000 MB of storage space<br>• 40 GB of transfer bandwidth<br>• FTP access<br>• Unlimited e-mail aliases<br>• 100 POP3 and IMAP e-mail accounts with 50 MB of space each<br>• Unlimited e-mail forwarding<br>• 50 auto-responders<br>• Catch-all e-mail address<br>• Unlimited sub-domains<br>• Two MySQL databases<br>• PHP3 and PHP4 support with GD, ImageMagick and FreeType<br>• Perl support (free CGI-Bin)<br>• Server Side Includes (SSI)<br>• Mod_Rewrite<br>• Password protected directories<br>• Daily backups of your website<br>• Access to log files<br>• Webalizer stats<br>• Customizable error pages<br>• Easy to use control panel for account management<br><br><br> My uptime is longer than yours, therefore my e-penis is longer.

The website is run from what they call a "spydisk" which is a 100MB virtual disk, like the iDisk.... but free and it has FTP support, which is much faster than Webdav.<br><br>I don't need their hosting function right now, but I'll definitely give it a shot in the future if those prices hold up.<br><br><br><br>

I'm confused a bit here ...<br><br>Why would one need 1GB of e-mail space? Does this mean that I cold theoretically send you a 50MB e-mail attachment or something? Or is it so you'd never have to clean-out your e-mail boxes? Just curious =)<br><br>Also, assuming that "web space" is equivalent to .Mac's iDisk space, what is "Picture Space"? Is it essentially just more storage? And how would that differ from "Web space"? Or are they essentially offering 350MB of general storage?<br><br>Personally, if I had the choice, I'd want the 1GB of space to be for storage, not for e-mail - I mean, 1GB of HD space is 1GB, what does it matter to them what function it's used with?<br><br>=)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
