    Are they allowing php? afaik not, other than that you would have to need a external db server for your database. If you wanna blog, you can do now here on the forum. Currently its only active for Supporter and Mods/admins but will be expanded to all full members later.

    Default WordPress on MobileMe is not impossible....

    ...in the way that fat chicks in my car is impossible.

    It's more impossible in the same way that fat chicks say "Losing weight is impossible"

    I have a hacked version of WordPress "running" on my MobileMe hosting.

    Check out some details here: WordPress on MobileMe

    Not the prettiest solution, but it works for my needs...

    Actually I do believe they allow PHP, just that they won't provide the MySQL db required to host wp.

    The annual $100 US does hurt, but being able to sync all my Macs with a push of a button or automagically feels good. So do big email quotas I don't have to think about... for a family, the tight integration of iPhoto, iMovie and iWeb / MobileMe gallery is really handy - one might expect their wife even be able to use it...

    I got mine ages ago, so I still have the myname@mac.com email address which is cool. The reason I don't mind sticking it on the web is that the anti-spam built-in is REALLY good.

    I think as individual hosting, email and syncing, it is not as good as what you could find elsewhere, but as a complete integrated solution for Mac users, their will not be anything comparable until Macs get a bigger market % to attract attention...

    ah, with that amount of money I can register a domain, get at least 10 POP3 accounts, around 100GB storage/unlimited bandwidth, and with notMac you're basically covered.

    But yeah, I'm guessing I just have too much time on my hands... the setup did take a while.

    yeah, I probably wouldn't recommend it for new users, especially if they don't use the iLife stuff. But for people who already have it, they might as well use all of the features...
