MacOS 8.1 has been running dependably on our server. The performance does seem to be slightly improved.
We’re now running MacOS 8.1 on our web server. The networking architecture is suppossed to offer improved performance. A number of Mac software installers force you to restart your computer after installation, including that for MacOS 8.1. That’s often inconveniant to say the least. Some Mac users have learned that you can force the installer after installation is finished instead of immeadiately restarting. If you know the trick, don’t try it with the OS 8.1 installer. It seems to cause the computer to lock up and produces an unusable System Folder. And you thought we were just being mean having our server down for several hours.
Speaking of servers (don’t you love those creative transitions>, we’re now running a full set of software, including servers for web pages, email, ftp and databases. We’ve even got a mailing group ListServ package running. Most of the packages are still in shakedown, but the machine is bearing the load admirably along with it’s other duties.
