    apache 2.0.55, php 5.0.5, mysql 5.0.13

    I installed php & MySQL from this site and they both work great. The author has a php5 module for Apache 1.3 (the OSX default) and Apache 2. I hope this helps.

    Video/Final Cut Pro problems with Tiger?

    I've never used FCP but someone told me that getting the final cut out of the application can be problematic and the solution is to export the film as a Quicktime movie and then print it from Quicktime (don't ask me how). I hope this helps. Paul P.

    Hi, If you have more than one computer then you need a gateway router and I've used a Netgear one and a really cheap one from Maplins. Both worked as expected but check what your internet connection actually is, if it's ADSL (through a phone line) then you need an ADSL gateway router, if it's...

    How do I stream video?

    Hi, Another option is to publish the movie clips as Flash Video (FLV) using Macromedia Flash or Sorenson Squeeze. The Flash player is a lot smaller download than Quicktime but some Flash work is required to make it all work. We've recently encoded some video from DVD in FLV format see...

    PHP email form not returning multiple checkboxes

    Hi, I wouldn't use an array for the checkboxes. Just name each checkbox with a unique name i.e. service_1, service_2, service_3 etc. Then each checkbox will go through to the php script with it's own name. If that doesn't work, you've completely lost me!

    Blurry letters?

    I've always had problems with the blurry text that comes as standard with OSX. I do think Windows is easier to read (without cleartype enabled) with the smaller fonts that OSX likes to smooth (I'm not saying that Windows looks better, it's just easier to read in some circumstances). Anyway...
