I used to be a member of http://www.jeepclub.co.uk.

As well as the usual forums the site also has a features section, which offers useful information on a variety of Jeep-related subjects. I wrote the guide on buying a used Cherokee:

http://www.jeepclub.co.uk/features.cfm?id=22

Features on 123macmini.com could cover subjects such as building your own FireWire external hard drive, or basics every switcher should know. Such articles would have to be written as a gesture of goodwill by knowledgable, experienced people, just to enhance the site.

Just my two-penneth.

I think that's a great idea. It would be nice to have a range of topics, also maybe some things that aren't mini-specific.

i.e.; Linux on the Apple. There's a lot of information out the, but synthesizing it all can be difficult.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think that's a great idea! We're going to announce a few things in March or April. This idea might come in handy for those plans. We're also exploring the possibilities of starting a monthly podcast.

Glad you like the idea. I recently wrote an article for BSFA publication Matrix about switching to the Mac. When the plans you mention kick in I'll give the article a bit of a rewrite and you can publish it on here too, if you want to.
