Eating our own dog food
Category : Commentary/dogfood.txt
We've upgraded our server to run Panther. And it has its mail server turned on using Postfix Enabler. No matter what they say about Postfix being easier to set up than sendmail from the command line, nothing beats being able to do it with one click.
This is running on an old Graphite (G3) iMac. We swapped this in so that we can clean up and upgrade our G4 which we've been using as the server.
And I've just got Postfix Enabler listed on MacUpdate. So this little iMac is starting to take some pounding (30+ downloads in five minutes). If it holds up, it proves a point that there is life in those old iMacs. You can always use them as servers because all these server stuff work in the background without a GUI, and they don't need much in terms of processor speed, which is different from the convenional wisdom, XServes and all.
