I wonder whether the .Mac serial numbers will work. I usually buy a box whenever I find the best deal . . . didn't do it this year, but if I do find a .Mac box somewhere I'd like to know if I could use it.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

For me, .Mac and now MobileMe is definately not worth the price. For what they offer:<br>"20GB of combined email and file storage, 200GB of monthly data transfer"<br><br>I can get unlimited space and data transfer rate for the same price. <br><br><br><br>my photos
It's not for everybody, but Apple supplies all the tools that tie into your web site, photo albums etc. The Sync capabilities are nice for some people. IMO the main market is for people that don't really care how the Internet works and only want to easily post photos and make basic custom home pages etc, it's perfect. The Photo Albums look nice and are viewable by anyone with a computer.<br><br>I have my own web space too with more gigs transfer or storage than I'll ever use, but posting photo albums and making websites isn't so point and click as with mobileme. It requires extra tools/software, mobileme supplies everything needed.<br><br>The only reason I've been considering it is for sync purposes actually, I know a few people that have it mainly for that.<br><br>I knew some that got it to have a .mac address, looks like that isn't the case anymore though.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
You don't need any special apps to change the icon on an app or doc or volume - just do Get Info on it, and then paste in an icon after selecting the icon at the top left of the GI dialogue. (You can get the icon of your choice into your clipboard by doing the same with whatever app/doc/volume already has it - i.e. downloading icon files - and do select/copy from that Get Info dialogue first.)<br><br>- padmavyuha<br><br>*edit* Maybe this is irrelevant - since I don't have mobileme (yet) I don't know how this icon is appearing, or whether you can change it this way... by the way, I quite like a friend's suggestion that it should be pronounced Mow-Bee-Leem.<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by padmavyuha on 07/16/08 05:26 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

That's a lotta bandwidth. When I ran my own server I kept a tally on how much I was using. I never got past 3.
