The notMac application allows users to replicate .Mac services locally on their own machine or server. The server is OS neutral, while the client is OS X specific. notMac is a free, open-source utility for using the client-side dotMac services provided by Apple. Since many people already operate their own servers and don't require dotMac's server-side features - such as an @mac.com e-mail address or online access to their contacts - the notMac Challenge was started to encourage the development of a method for using the other OS X and iLife integrated services - like syncing and iDisk access - using one's own more...

It's got awesome potential and definitely meets a need.

The downside, as of this writing, is because the software "hijacks" the mac.com domain name, you won't be able to access or download from someone else using the "real" dot.mac service. Maybe that could be fixed in a future release?

Otherwise, this is a great solution for anyone who wants what .mac offers without the price.

This is definitely a problem - the Tubetrack widget relies on being able to connect to mac.com in order to get the list of stations, and hasn't worked since I installed notMac.

Ideally it should pass all .mac requests (other than for the username I've configured) on to the REAL .mac.

Incidentally, the upgrade script doesn't really make it clear whether or not I'm supposed to manually disable notMac (and how I'm supposed to do that!) or whether the script is going to do it for me.

One originality of this development is that it was user-funded, and I proudly participated one year ago, donating a (tiny) amount of money.

I believe notmac is great, but only for those users having a spare mac to backup on, which is not so general...

I would have much preferred the server side to be some php-based script that one would simply upload on your average, ISP-provided webserver.

Now, Notmac is here, and would it be just through the way it was invented and paid for, it's worth remembering.

(all the more as my younger son will soon replace his mac mini ;-)
