.Mac home page dead, Nov 8th - 10/08/10 10:39 AM

Just got a letter from Apple. Not sure what it means?

Anyway come Nov 8th if you have anything on .Mac it will no longer be viewable. I think mine is iWeb?

It's time to move on, anyway. I like the way Apple integrated things with .Mac, but I've NEVER been to any pages or photo galleries or ANYTHING hosted through the .Mac service that had speedy load times when compared to many other server/hosts dealing out similar content.

It's already been redirected to the MobileMe page for quite some time. It makes a lot of sense to include all of the previous .mac and idisk users under .me


www.me.com homepage is how I get to my iDisk and set up other Mail preferences.

email redirects from .mac to .me too.

I get the same slowness on MobileMe pages, too. Maybe the automatic & easy-to-use scripting generates bloated code? (Nooooo, really? Ya think?)

Okay
I take it that my 2 websites are okay and not effected by the Nov 8 deadline?

Big Island

Glider ride

Now the first one is a iWeb site so that should be okay.
The 2nd one is the gallery but does have .Mac?

Change the .mac in the url to .me and it still comes in, it should be okay.

If you go to your MobileMe gallery and it shows up you're okay.

I've always stored my website (and the new site I built for my condo complex) on my iDisk, and apparently nothing will change with this move by Apple. But I've been thinking about moving everything to a hosting service, so this is the trigger to make it happen very soon.

it is really quick on my connection right now. I've been very happy with upload/download speed to my iDisk too.
