I was about to install mysql on my Imac 24″ when I notice something called MAMP. Now I remember WAMP in the days where I wanted to run a server on my old PC . . . so 10 minutes later I have MAMP installed and up and running. What a wonderful program it is.

Thank you to all of those people out there offering such wonderful open source software like this.I now have Windows XP pro running with Internet Information Services (IIS) so I can run and develop ASP solutions. Again what a fantastic piece of software and extremely well priced. May I also recommend the company I bought it from in the UK. ordered on a Tuesday at 2pm and arrived on Wednesday by 3pm.

So anyhow I have my new Imac. My Adobe CS3 package, my all important Itunes.  Everything is go.  CS3 by the way for all those who want to know is worth every penny. I love the new way Illustrator integrates the smart objects into Adobe Photoshop. Truly wonderful.
