Product description

From the Back Cover

Mac OS X Unleashed is a complete guide and reference for Mac OS users. The power of OS X is largely in its underlying BSD implementation. For an average Mac user, experiencing a command line for the first time can be an unpleasant experience. This book will take the approach of demonstrating familiar actions and tools, and then provide the equivalent information within the BSD environment. For advanced users, this book will cover system administration ranging from advanced configuration of FTP servers, SSH tunneling, to installing secure E-mail and Web servers. The progression of the text is designed to move from simple "using" topics through advanced configuration - making it easier for beginners and experienced users to find what they're looking for.

In short, Mac OS books have never had to deal with issues beyond the Macintosh GUI. This book will bridge the gap between the user interface and the BSD subsystem in a way that is accessible to users who are unfamiliar with UNIX and other multi-user systems.

About the Author

John Ray is an award-winning developer and security consultant with more than 16 years of programming and administration experience. He has worked on projects for the FCC, the National Regulatory Research Institute, The Ohio State University, Xerox, and the State of Florida, as well as serving as IT Director for Blue Cosmos Design, Inc. John has written or contributed to more than 10 titles currently in print, including Special Edition Using TCP/IP, Sams Teach Yourself Dreamweaver UltraDev 4 in 21 Days, and Maximum Linux Security. He bought his first Macintosh in 1984, and remains a strong proponent for the computer and operating system that revolutionized the industry.

Dr. Will Ray is a mathematician turned computer scientist turned biophysicist who has gravitated to the field of bioinformatics for its interesting synergy of logic, hard science, and human-computer-interface issues. A long-time Macintosh and Unix enthusiast, Will has owned Macs since 1985, and has worked with Unix since 1987. Prior to switching his professional focus to the biological sciences, Will spent 5 years as a Unix programmer developing experimental interfaces to online database systems. Shortly after migrating to biophysics, Will developed a Macintosh- and Unix-based computational biology/graphics laboratory and training center for The Ohio State University's College of Biological Sciences. At the facility, which he managed for five years, Will introduced hundreds of students and faculty to Unix, and provided training and assistance in the development of productive computing skills on the paired Macintosh and Unix platforms.

Will is currently a researcher at the Wexner Research Institute of Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, where he is developing Web-based database tools and working to build a core computational research and training facility.
