Care to show me your work?

WebMon and DNS Enabler have been doing quite well, and for this I'm very thankful. I'm wondering how people are doing and what they're building with these tools, including Postfix Enabler or Luca.
If anybody is willing to send me links about how they're doing, using Macs for their businesses, and especially if the tools here have been of use, I would love to feature them in these pages. Just send me a note.
IP over Firewire
Category : Technology/IPoverFirewire.txt
While debugging WebMon today, I found that SSL doesn't work between two machines, a client and server, when they're connected across a firewire cable.
My two iBooks sensed each other immediately when they were connected via firewire. Using their Bonjour (previously known as Rendezvous) xxx.local names, I can connect from one to the other via SSH and HTTP, but not HTTPs.
That's interesting. Connect two Macs via a simple ethernet cable and it just works (no cross-over cable needed). Connect two Macs via a firewire cable and it (almost) just works. Did somebody at Apple miss this? I'll come back and explore this when I get the time.
