Even PC users concede that the Mac's great for art, graphics and design. But packed into even a tiny Mac Mini is everything that is needed to run a business on—host a web site, share your ideas, create a community, market your services, execute transactions, account for cash flows, coordinate a project team, share calendars, etc.
There's a whole lot of powerful technologies built into every Mac - Apache, WebDav, Postfix, SMTP, POP, IMAP, Fetchmail, iCal, MySQL, SQLite, SSL, DNS, SSH, PHP, LDAP. That's enough to help even a small company with limited resources to outperform bigger, better-endowed competition.
All we need is a way to turn them on.
Our projects focus on this theme - helping ordinary Mac, iPhone and iPad users unlock the full potential of their machines.

Configures OS X's built-in web server to support WebDAV, PHP, and SSL. With WebDAV turned on, your web server acts like an iDisk, allowing you to connect to the WebDav folder remotely, securely, and directly from the Finder, so you can save, share, and distribute your files folders and iCal calendars. Web server log can be monitored remotely. Available in Tiger, Leopard,Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks versions.
Sets up a fully functional Domain Name Server on Mac OS X with just one click. It is able to handle multiple virtual domains, multiple sub-nets, aliases, MX records, reverse pointer and CNAME records, and secondary name servers - all from one convenient single window. Available in Tiger, Leopard,Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks versions.
DNS Agent monitors the IP address of the machine it is running on and updates the DNS Server managing the domain name of that machine with its latest IP address, whenever that address changes. It is suitable for use in machines with dynamically assigned IP address, to keep its domain name in sync with its IP address at all times. DNS Agent is able to update two kinds of DNS Servers - BIND name servers set up by DNS Enabler for Snow Leopard, and dyndns.com servers, if the user has an account with dyndns.com. Available in Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks versions.

"We've always tried to be at the intersection of technology and liberal arts, to be able to get the best of both, to make extremely advanced products from a technology point of view, but also have them be intuitive, easy to use, fun to use, so that they really fit the users—the users don't have to come to them, they come to the user."
—Steve Jobs, Apple (WWDC 2010).
